I avoid wearing purely black outerwear, hoodies, and horizontal stripes. I just cannot imagine myself wearing these things anymore. I used to wear all of them, before I was sartorially aware.

(Crossposted on Streetwear & Denim for an interesting comparison, and to avoid internecessine strife.)

i do kind of avoid wearing black as well. none of my outerwear is black (except for an old CK cardigan and a leather jacket from 9 years ago).

i have no black tops but a few black socks, which i hardly wear.

i rather go with a dark blue or midnight blue for dress pants or anything that needs to be of a neutral color on me.

miniskirts & platform boots. Man... those were the years.

I'm not joking

Hey I'm Scottish, if you can wear a skirt at formal events you can pretty much try any clothes.

I don't wear hoodies ever. I never used the hood and I now avoid them since I think a light wool sweater accomplishes the same thing but looks better. They're also everywhere here. I see people walking around in $200 or $300 plus embroidered, designer hoodies and I think it's just stupid.
