Most of the pages on this wiki are not color-categorized yet. This table is new, and the number of pages categorized will grow with community help.

This table shows the category pages for colors. Pages on this wiki are tagged with the color name in bold/linked, as determined by the aesthetic's most common visuals and images of clothing.

Color is incredibly subjective; these categories are not definitive or perfect, but are good enough for general searches. Because of this subjectivity, page categories under the colors are not a priority in moderation, and shades do not have to be perfect. For example, an aesthetic that incorporates mostly lavender can stay under purple, even if medium purple isn't present in the aesthetic.

These colors are also common in more "party" aesthetics that are purposefully loud.
Pastels are shades of colors that are pale and soft. Often, they are associated with the springtime, femininity, youth, and delicate aesthetics.
