Hah this is fun
When I was studying industrial design, the teachers told us that by the end of our final year we would all be wearing black head to toe to hide the fact that we didn't go home the night before and stayed up working!
That didn't happen to me at all - while I am guilty of working late into the night (on my own stuff not my job) I rarely wear all black.
I wear a lot of colour! Prints too! I pretty much live in dresses (50s style usually cinched at the waist) and I only own one pair of jeans. I like sparkles, sequins (yep in the office), glitter covered shoes and textured fabrics. I do look like a creative professional- I stand out in very corporate y offices! You'll never see me wearing a white collared shirt!
I also have visible tattoos on my arms, legs and back of the neck and I tend to dye my hair all sorts of unnatural colours like blue and pink- the side of my head had a rainbow at one time. Today I've just dyed it black with a plan to bleach an under panel and dye that panel green.
We are who we are and I tend to use my outfits to express that to the world.
