Growing up I was never fond of the color grey, or black, or any sort of monochromatic neutrals like them.  For me, the brighter the colors the better.  I went through a few style changes, I can remember in middle school I was all for bright colors and matching.  I went through a ‘punk/alternative’ phase in high school, (I’d still wear those fluorescent colors in the form of skinny jeans along with band tees, sneakers, and the like.)
