About This Quiz

What does your favorite color say about you? Theories about this abound, especially when it's your favorite color to wear, not your choice for a new car, or a color with which to paint your walls. 

For this quiz, we're concentrating on the base color of your wardrobe, the one that makes up its "bones." In other words, black, brown, dark blue, or white ( winter white, or cream, counts as well). So while you might be drawn to a red hat, or a vivid yellow scarf, that's not what we're thinking about here -- though we'll also guess at what your favorite accent color might be, as well as your base color. 

Are you a basic-black person? That color is really anything but basic; it reflects a strong personality, in touch with your sexuality and your artistic side. Someone who favors brown is likely to be artistic as well, in a nature-oriented way, favoring organic textures, leather, suede, and maybe wood jewelry. Someone who wears a lot of navy or midnight blue is probably a powerful personality, conservative in their tastes and lifestyle, but ambitious as well. Finally, white or cream suggests a traditional person as well, and one in touch with their feminine side.
