How do you determine clothing color you're going to buy?

Let's say you're buying a nice sweater and you only want to spend money to buy one. How do you pick whether you want the blue one, black, brown or whatever color you fancy? Right now I'm looking at buying gloves, but am unsure if I want black or brown >:-{} It's not a big deal and I will just pick one, but what logic does your brain use?

  • I'm currently looking for a quality wool suit, either navy or black in color for a conservative work environment. What I've been looking for in a desired color for shirts/blouses are complementary shades that will be flattering for my skin tone and the aforementioned suit colors. I then think about which colors would be best for the greatest number of combinations, regarding my wardrobe as a whole.

  • If money is an issue then I will pick a subtle/neutral color that will coordinate with many other outfits I already own. If I had to choose between black and brown, I'd choose brown because I have more brown boots than black

  • I never wear brown so that's out. My closet consists of neutrals (black, white, grey, khaki, some navy) with brights (red, pink, blue, purple, green) I usually incorporate black into some part of my outfit so I'd go with black. This is all based on my color season (im winter).

    • Your color season? Interesting, brown is one of my favorite colors to wear.

    • Yeah there's online quizzes it's based on undertones and such.

  • I try all and see which suits me the best. I really pressure my brain to remember which colour I already have in my wardrobe eventually I narrow it down to one choice. Usually ask my mums opinion she has awesome taste in clothing.

  • If you get the sweater how much will you like it to pick what color you like it in the most. Or try them on and see what color best suits you. Half of women's shopping time depends on this.

  • Depends how often you'll wear said item. Black goes with everything, so it would go with other fabric better.

  • We'll find the outfits that you would mostly wear the gloves with. What color would suit them? Or if you don't care to be matching go for your favorite color or an out of the box color to spice stuff up!

  • I'd choose whichever looked best or which I had more clothes that would match. Also, if I have a sweater or shirt that is a similar color, I'd be more hesitant to buy it just because I have nearly the same thing already

  • Depends on my mood. Sometimes I buy neutrals, if it's something I'd wear very often. But if it's something I change everyday like T-shirts then I pick based on my mood at the time. With winter coats I stick with neutral colors.

  • What colors do I normally wear? Brown won't go well with pastel shades, but will look good with black, red, yellow..black is good with blue or red or pastel shades. Simple..it's just shopping with people who think about coordination a lot.

  • I just buy whatever colours will fit with what I currently have in my closet, and according to what I like. If I really like something I'll buy it and then try and make it work later on

  • I base it off of what looks better on me, when I want to wear this particular item, and whether or not I can match it with the clothes I have.
