Interesting question. As a robotics major, I judge color on a 0 to 255 RGB scale, so no 2 shades are technically of the same color . I could go on and on about perception of color, gradient, intensity, saturation, and so much more.

I particularly like to wear scarlet or deep blue, but in general prefer a colorful array of shirts (orange, green, black, gray, maroon, Light blue).

I remember a time in middle school when I wore a pink shirt by mistake, and this kid rammed me on the wall 15 times ( Maybe more, I lost consciousness), yelling "you're gay" slam "you're gay" slam. In reality, I am not gay. But getting beaten up like that taught me never to touch pink.

I think pink looks good on men.

I don't want to be beaten unconscious though. I'm sure most people are not that psychopathic, but such memories never disappear easily. This happened in February 2004, the most brutal assault I've encountered.

I have a lot of black pants, black shoes and black accessories in my wardrobe. Then, I buy cheap camis in every color. It all kind of works out. Black is definitely a basis in my wardrobe, though. I always notice it when I try to wear something that will look better with brown. I have brown shoes and brown purses, but they're definitely my older stuff. My best stuff is in black.

Something about off-white, beige or cream makes me look sick and sallow. I know most fashion consultants recommend it over white, but white is my bff of "colors."

I have most colors but I'm all about highly saturated colors or barely there pastels.

And no orange or bright yellow. Not good w my skin tone.

I used to wear only wear black and navy blue. I slowly started adding gray; however, black is my favorite color.

Almost everything I own is black, charcoal, or denim.

I don't ever wear pastels.

I unintentionally do. I'll find looking in my closet a lot of black and white for the winter, navy for the summer.
