It can be stated that black color was a color of clubbing culture during the last two centuries. At the beginning of XIX century, the color black was accepted as a style of men's clothing at different types of parties and funerals. During the epoch of romanticism, black color was predominant in men's clothing as a feature of elite style, which was very important for those who visited clubs.
Black color becomes very popular among the club members. From a psychological point of view, black color makes maximum inner protection and a feeling of inner comfort. Black color is traditionally an evening color and one of the most sensual. One can say that black color is to a great extent connected with human vanity and social image of the person, it is a color of celebrities. There is also an opinion that black color is a color of money (it is not accidentally that it became popular in XIX century, when businessmen were the key persons in the society).
One of the most popular colors of clubbing clothes of XX century is a "small black dress" - one can come across it in very rich casinos world-wide, as well as in youth clubs. So, these days, black color, which was a prerogative of men's dress, is entering into women's clothes. Moreover, women are becoming crazy about black color. Although lately an attitude to this color in the world of fashion has changed dramatically. Lately there is a wide discussion among the editors of the most popular fashion magazines on how to break down women's habit to dress in black. General enthusiasm as for this color started in the 1970's when punks began appearing in England. They created their own understanding and even philosophy of black color. If in XIX century black color was very popular among middle-aged people visiting business clubs, at the end of XX century this color became an attribute of youth culture.
The majority of modern clubbing clothing style originated to the 1960's thanks to such movies as "Barbarella", "Star trek", and "Superman". Using plastic, vinyl and rubber as clothing elements, including skin-tight suites and high boots and interiors in the form of a spaceship or space station all characterize modern clubbing clothing and modern enthusiasm for cosmic themes.
It is one of the forms of escaping the reality. Another type of clubbing clothing is clothing for dancing and for those who are mad about dancing and who frequent dancing clubs. Clothing style connected with dancing culture attracts the attention of world famous designers such as Don Caran, Kelvin Klein and Tom Ford. Elastic tissues with sputtered threads, skin-tight silhouettes, and asymmetry are widely used in their last collections.
Side by side with cosmic themes, sport style clothing is very exciting for young and middle-aged people who love sports and who visit sport clubs - so this is another type of clubbing clothing. Such types of clothes as the free-style football jersey, jeans with "room to grow", baseball caps, professional running shoes from "Nike", "Reebok" and "Adidas" are very popular youth clubbing clothing.
