I like solids - clean simple colours: mostly two, sometimes three. Prints look so busy to me, I like stripes on others, and occasionally like a floral print dress - especially the summer dresses. I would wear the floral print summer dress if I knew a good place to find them ... one where the waist is a little lower, for taller.

I think you'd look great in floral. lol. j/k

Stripes remind me of jail/prison so I tend to avoid those.

I wear primarily lighter colors... pastels, white, light purple.

My wardrobe consists mostly solids

Pastels don't work in the Fall, solids do. How do you get around Fall with pastel?

I wear them in the Spring/Summer months when its warmer. Fall/Winter, I tend to weae more darker colors. I wear a lot of solids or shirts that have words/short phrases on them

I've never heard "No pastels in fall" before, but I guess plaid is the more seasonally-appropriate alternative, at least for men.

I usually go for solids, just not all the time. I do hate plaid with a passion, though, and always have.

I like a variety, and agree with many of the other posters about seasonal styles. And I love tartans and plaids in the fall!Solids are a must for me - I have lots of them!

I like stripes, polka dots, abstract florals and geometric prints. I do not often like prints with lots of colors. I tent to like 1-3 colors. I do like whimsical prints. I have a shirt with shoes and another with eye lashes!

Solids so it's easier to mix and match.
