So in the west white and generally light colors are associated with innocence and the good while dark colors, especially black is associated with evil. Now if you look at traditional clothing. Men - Black suit. Women - colorful or at a wedding specifically white
You are misreading the colours. In European culture the dark colours come from religious conservatism and because before the late 19th Century, when synthetic fabric dyes were invented by German industrial chemists, colourful clothing was expensive to make. In my case I former army. Former soldiers shun bright colours and prefer black and earth tones. Think camoflague colours.
In China black is good and white is bad also. They see black as the color of the void, which is like their Buddhist version of Heaven, and white as the color of death, which is why they all wear white at their funerals.. This is why in a lot of old gung fu movies you see the good guy wearing all black, and the bad guy wearing white.
Never really heard about this... I just wear any color, EXCEPT PINK!!! God, pink makes me look like a flower... I just like wearing Red, Blue, Green, White, Black, and Grey, but I sometimes wear other colors too.
The reason why men in the middle east wear white, is to protect themselves from the raging sun. Women are "temptresses" in those cultures, so them wearing black is not at all surprising to me, but that's just speculation - I don't actually know why women can't wear black burqas, but I suspect it still has something to do with gender roles and other cultural shite. As far as I can see, it's just another fuck you to women there - let them fry in the heat.
I don't think anyone sees it that way for guys. They wear dark colours to appear more professional and/or serious, or simply because dark colours look good on a guy. If he was to wear bright, loud colours like a women, he might be mistaken as gay.
Girls do the same. The LBD (little black dress) is seen as a women's staple. Darker colours can be seen as sexier and more adult. Bright colours are just seen as being feminine and dressing up.
Colors represent different things from culture to culture, and their meanings change through time. In western countries for example-blue, green and black being masculine isn't because those colors are ''bad'', but because they represent dominance, while women are given pink which represents submission, docility and tenderness. Pink used to be a male color but that changed once it's meaning changed to something derogatory (submission).
