Hum... basing on the colors I like to dress, I would be 1, 4, 2 and 8.

Just because I dress mostly in black doesn't mean I'm an 8. It's just the tendencies of 8s to dress that way. I wouldn't hold that as basis.
I dress in black mostly because it's easy to pair and it doesn't make me look fat.
I wear vertical lines so that it doesn't widen me; doesn't make me look fat.
I buy high quality products because I know my budget isn't much and I want something that lasts me long so I don't have to keep paying for replacements.
I stick to monochromatic colors because again, it's easy.
Probably not type related, but I hate synthetic fabrics. I hate the rubbery feelings and I can't breathe in it.
I looked at the type 4 one and went, "pfft, violet? I never wear violet". Then I looked down and realised I'm in a purple T-shirt with some dreamy 4-like image on it.
This pretty much exactly happened to me. I was all like "come on, I love color, gray is so BORING" and then I realized that I have so much freaking gray in my wardrobe.
Re: the OP (i.e. enneagram, MBTI and clothes)... in the link and in the summaries, I related to 1, 3 and 6 the most. But for a more detailed description: I like color, but I like color that's flattering on me, which means not a lot of brights -- and certainly no neon! But I am not at all afraid of other bright colors, or bold prints. There's an element of modesty (limited cleavage, almost no skirts above fingertip length, never showing both leg and cleavage), just because I don't like it when people stare, and the sorts of guys I attract when I dress like that tend to creep me out. There's also an element of practicality (e.g. I never, ever wear heels higher than 2 inches; why would anyone want to do that to their feet? Studies have been done. You get permanent foot damage!). But what I strive for is a look that's put together, trendy (but not enough to be annoying), and generally beyond criticism. <-- Type 1!
Also, I never ever dress down when I'm at home, vs. when I'm out and about. I feel differently based on what clothes I'm wearing and if I wear pajamas or sweatpants during the day, I feel unmotivated and lethargic. Wearing fun clothes keeps me energized.
EDIT... Current outfit:
- Light gray Obey Giant men's t-shirt that I got for free
- Purple shawl-necked knit sweater/bolero
- Dark wash skinny jeans that earlier today were tucked into Frye engineer boots but are now tucked into fluffy slippers
- Western-style leather belt that I got at Yellowstone over winter break
- Stacked beaded bracelets, of varying shapes but all black/gray
According to this, I dress like a type 8 with elements of type 4. I have almost no violet in my wardrobe, but interesting, funky cuts and textures abound. I am fond of bold, high-contrast items, and I have more black and white than anything else. Red, military green, and grey appear with some frequency.
I love boots, buckles, straps, lace, etc. My modest, conservative enneatype evidently has little influence on my fashion sense.

'I would go out tonight, but I haven't got a stitch to wear...'
In my youth I used to put tons of effort into my appearance. Everytime I bought something new I couldn't sleep well from the excitement to wear it the following day. At times I wore completely absurd things, such as a green alien earring, a glowing yellow jacket or a dolphin ring (lol). Things like that. The problem with this was that I grew older to feel very shallow in the social realm; that people notice only the me that is outside. Me = How I look, and nothing more. It didn't correspond with my inner world and thus felt really wrong. One thing led to another, and today as much as I still care much for my appearance, I don't put much effort in this area. Can't remember the last time I went shopping... the last item I bought was a vintage sunglasses from the '80s, which I turned into glasses. Even that I bought from my cousin who works in antiques and vintage trading.
I still don't know my actual enneagram, but all my clothes mostly black, navy and some other color. I like to wear slack, jeans, T Shirt, and some formal clothes. It depends on the place where I'm going for. I like to wear high heels, sometimes sport shoes and sandals.
Scanning over the pictures and stuff, 8. It's probably the bitch heels that I always wear. And the military coats, and the colorblocking, and the jewelry that could probably murder you. Looking like I wandered off a runway is a pretty good feeling.
