I've always been a dark asian (more like olive.. i'm actually half, and still get this skin). I've seen some Chinese like that though.. I think it's mostly Han Chinese that are a bit lighter than others. Most of my Asian family is Thai or Southern Chinese and a little more tan.

Well, in some Asian countries, lighter skin signified higher class - it meant you didn't toil in the sun. Maybe this reasoning is gone in some people, but the desire carried over, as a general cultural practice.
Blue jeans and a T-shirt (or button-down shirt), usually dark, sneakers or boots, and a necklace (I have a beaded one my dad bought me and one with al eather pendant). I usually don't wear more accessories than that (watches, etc.), because I always end up losing them.
What do these signs mean—, , etc.? Why cannot socionists use symbols Ne, Ni etc. as in MBTI? Just because they have somewhat different meaning. Socionics and MBTI, each in its own way, have slightly modified the original Jung's description of his 8 psychological types. For this reason, (Ne) is not exactly the same as Ne in MBTI.
Just one example: in MBTI, Se (extraverted sensing) is associated with life pleasures, excitement etc. By contrast, the socionic function (extraverted sensing) is first and foremost associated with control and expansion of personal space (which sometimes can manifest in excessive aagression, but often also manifests in a capability of managing lots of people and things).
For this reason, we consider comparison between MBTI types and socionic types by functions to be rather useless than useful.

T-shirt, jeans and then put on some mad kicks. Nice and simple don't have to worry about being too fashionable, although i am going to try to work on my fashion sense over the summer. Gonna try to mix in some hong kong and american styles to my liking with the help of my cousins.
But y'know poli is seriously making dress up into something complicated, allmost looked like you're getting foked in the ass or sumthing.

How I dress seems mostly dependent on what mood I'm in when I wake up, so it's anywhere from jeans and a t-shirt or hoodie when I'm depressed to lace and floofy skirts when I'm feeling cheerful. Modesty also matters to me less and less as I get older. I'm covered up in winter because I hate being cold, but during the summer I'll leave the house in the bare minimum of clothing required to keep me from getting arrested if it keeps me comfortable.
So, I guess I don't really have a fashion, per se. I just wear what strikes my fancy/meets my needs for that particular day.
I'm loving all the commandos in this thread. As far as feeling paranoid about having an unfurnished basement goes, if anyone can tell you're not wearing underwear, they're probably paying way too much attention to your crotch.
My wardrobe is made up mostly of classical black pieces that could be worn at the office or worn out depending on how I accessorize.
I like particular cuts that are flattering to my hour glass figure and don't tend to stray away from that. I do like jewelery so I tend to use my black outfit as a kind of background for my jewelery and focus the attention on that and my bold black and red makeup.
Recently I was in Kansas City visiting friends from PersonalityNation/PersonalityCafe and was asked not to 'look so goth' so I went out and bought plaid shirts and jeans... it was pretty lulsy but it was worth the laugh.
I dress comfortably, and am not too obsessed with fashion. I quite dislike clothes shopping and much prefer to shop for books, but shopping for clothes is a necessary evil. I enjoy it when shopping on the internet over going to a brick and mortar store. There are benefits to trying on clothing then and there but meh. Sweaters and jackets are quite common in my wardrobe, especially when wearing a T-shirt out and not wanting to be too high on the casual scale.
I will try to look decent when going to a job or an occasion. I wear a lot of blues and purples (surprise surprise.) Maybe some floral patterns or peasanty outfits here and there. To be expressive, I wear T-shirts with my favorite shows/sayings I find funny on them. For example "If the hat fits, wear it" with a witch's hat. Kind of cheesy, I know.
Exactly how serious, the American Express Company had gotten to know very rapidly, and increasingly strident and panic-stricken demands on of it's debt-collection department were only silenced by the unexpected demolition of the entire planet by Vogons, to make way for a new hyperspace bypass.

To the left is probably a sign of some deviancy.
