    What's All This Goth/emo Blabbing About Wearing Black?

    To tell you a secret which your ears won't believe, black exists from before this universe had an order, and people wore black clothes since they actually began to wear them. And guess how old are the so called goth and emo, instead. So, what's the point of the association?

    Formerly Gothic

    I used to be a Goth, more in demeanor than in appearance, with the exception of the unrelenting black wardrobe. Day in, day out I'd wear black, not just because it fit in with the Goth persona, but because it's easy to work with if you don't want to be bothered with deciding on...

    I'm Not a Goth

    I just happen to enjoy wearing black a lot - but I'm learning to mix it with other colours. My favourite outfit is black jeans with black Converse baseball boots underneath and a black V-neck T-shirt - my only concession to colour is usually my turquoise jacket. Plus black goes...

    I Just Like It,

    It's not my fault that a lot of the shirts that I like are black. I don't try. People think that I'm emo or goth because I wear a lot of black shirts and other dark clothing. If you looked at my closet you'd see only a few shirts and one pair of paints that are actually black. I...

    Not Goth Or Anything

    It's just so easy to wear black pants and wear any tops with them.  Everything seems to go with them.  And, I am self-conscious about having "accidents" during my period, so this gives me a bit of peace of mind.

    I Love to Wear Black

    It’s not about fashion, or making a personal statement; it’s simply about the inner me. Being enveloped in black soothes me. I feel comforted…. secure. It grounds me before emerging into the external world.

    Yeah, I Do...

    I wear black a lot! Of course you probably knew this already since I "joined" this group. I have worn black more since 1983. I worked in management at a Casual Corner in Atlanta. The regional manager had a woman to come in to do our "colors" for us. Now, there are probably a...

    Not All The Time Though

    I just like black. I don't wear it to be dark or goth or anything, I just like the color black a lot. I've been told I can fill a pair black denim jeans pretty good though!

    Basic Black

    I freely admit that there's probably a touch of the goth in my personality, but this is not the reason why I wear black so much.  My reason is much simpler -- it goes with everything! Shortly before I entered junior high, I remember finding an old book of my mother's which...

    I Wear Black A Lot

    ........but mostly for work. Sometimes when I have to travel and work, it is so much easier to pack without having to lug around extra bag stuffed to the brim with too much clothings. I also don't follow fashion trend. That basically made my black skirts and suits a uniform...

    I think about 90% of my closet consists of

    black clothing. I have always loved the way I look and feel in black, and I probably always will. Even my hair is black, lol.

    Yes. That I Do.

    People have been remarking upon that more and more lately. "Wow, you wear black a lot." Yeah. Yeah I do. What of it? People don't make remarks when someone wears a lot of, say, blue. Why is wearing black so different? I don't even know why I wear it so much... I guess...

    Well... as a teen, I was goth. NOT emo. Yes, there is a difference, or there was one when I was growing up. But, the lable goth was given to me, because my love of black clothes. I love the color black. Always had since I was a little girl. I don't know why exactly, I just do...

    Not Every Day

    Mostly Always

    Black is never not a component of my outfit. I do not know why, but I love to wear black, it makes me feel happy, comfy, and secure. I feel like I look good if something I am wearing is black, it is so easy to match with anything else, and it makes me feel good. Somehow it...

    I Don't Feel Right In Any Other Color

    I aspired to being Goth in highschool but never managed to be good at it, however wearing black has stayed with me. I hate seeing myself in any other color, it looks ugly and fake. I am okay with blue jeans, but everything else must be black.
