I have never understood those people that choose to wear all black or all gray. Mostly urban populations yet I come from Chicago and there is nothing worse than a dull wardrobe in the midst of winter bleakness. Personally, I think black should be for your "not so skinny" days or as a foundation. I love as much color, patterns, textures as possible. Heck, why not mix a few patterns. Find the inner child in you...remember when you used to dress yourself?
