Shirts that speak your mind

The colour of your shirt says more about you than you would care to imagine. Blue is loyal, black means sex..

Believe it or not — your shirt talks, and we’re not talking about the top three buttons of your shirt that are unbut toned, or the time you got out of the loo at a coffee shop and forgot to zip up.
Anyway, there’s a lot that the dye of your threads say about you — except those of course who let their designers take all their decisions.

Anyway, here’s a little bit of help, just so you don’t send out the wrong message… And, since men for most part couldn’t care less about the colour that they are wearing (hell, a man’s guide for women says all men see in only 16 colours, like Windows default settings.

Peach, for example, is a fruit, not a colour. Pumpkin is also a fruit. We have no idea what mauve is) but since girls hang on to every word that you do or don’t say, we suggest you pin this guide on your wardrobe let the colours do the talking.

Black Yours truly and a follicularly challenged homie wears black shirts out to parties and clubbing — owing to lack of imagination and of course to wear the designer’s shirt to his show.

There’s other reasons too, you know — black is so much easier to wear, it looks cool with all those light blue denims, but little did we know that we were also wearing our best shag shirts (unintentionally of course!).

Black represents elegance, power, mystery and most importantly seduction.

That said, don’t wear black all the time, we know we think about sex every three seconds, but is it really that necessary to say it in so many terms?

As a colleague rather delicately puts it, all her thongs are black.
