Holy crap. I read two ISTP descriptions and I fit in there pretty well!
On a regular day:
I wear jeans ALL of the time.
I've got a bunch of t-shirts. I used to wear loads of black or other dark colors, mainly navy blue and dark purple. I still wear them a lot, but I've had to venture out into other shades (which I really like). It used to be a matter of not having to make anything match with anything else - y'know, black just works!
Shoes - tennis shoes, but not running ones. I like the slimmer ones, a bit girlier, more petite, a little dressier (but not much).
For dressing up:
I wear almost all black. I'm trying to expand the number of colors in my closet - otherwise everything looks just the same.
I'm now a fan of long sleeve, button up shirts with vertical stripes. I also like solid color sweaters with a simple weave (??) design - mainly stripey.
I'll wear the occasional skirt...but that's not too common.
I've got bunches of black pants.
I 65.63% E 34.38% S 68.75% N 31.25% T 87.1% F 12.9% P 66.67% J 33.33%
Most of my clothes are comfortable. My skin is sensitive so I pay attention to fabric texture and weight to make sure that my skin can "breathe". I like fitted clothing, and also anything that has unique cut, shape, etc. I like to wear black, brown, grey... neutrals, and muted colors. I am starting to describe how old women dress, aren't I? Well, I consider my style to be sleek/modern/minimalist.
Oh, and I'm an IxxP.

Um, well, I usually like dressing casual-infomally, which means T-shirt and shorts. Very rarely do I wear a dress, since I think it's little too fussy and restricts my freedom of movement. I don't really wear anything that stands out a lot, just regular colors like black, dull brown, red. No crazy stuff for me.
For footwear, I just go about my business in a pair of slippers.
While at home I dress rather sloppily: I go around in pajamas all day long. xD
I am not a sloppy dresser by any means, but for some reason I usually only buy clothes that dont wrinkle easily. Me and my (fellow INFP) husband lost our iron when we moved a whole year ago, and we didnt even notice until we had been without one for 6 months! Both our jobs at the time didnt require any kind of dressing up, so we both wore jeans or khaki type pants every day. But still, thats pretty bad, lol.
I do like things that look unique and flattering, and Im all about comfort...not to the point of wearing sweats all the time or something, but I like things that feel and look good.
For just casual wear I pretty much wear pants and a t shirt. Jeans, khakis, or corduroy and some sort of logo t shirt or blouse, or more renaissance or hippie shirts. Im not a big accessory person, I usually forget to put on jewelry and I own maybe one belt and 2 scarves. I strive to accessorize like they tell you in Cosmo, but so far its been low on my priority list.
My hair is always worn shoulder length or longer and I am always changing the color. Also I like to wear makeup but I definitely don't pile it on, and I also don't wear it every day. I usually dont plan it out and will make a snap decision at the last minute. So basically I'm not COMPLETELY lazy and not completely obsessed either.. and my clothes are definitely not color co-ordinated (although that would be good). Seem most INFP girls are either like me, or they really pride themselves on showing their personality by what they wear. Also I notice INFP guys can be really really lazy about their appearance!

I can't swing it at present, but one of my major goals in life is to reach the point where I have the resources and nature of career that allow me to wear a suit everyday.
That, along with your avatar, are AWESOME.
I hope you won't be insulted when I say, that's really cute! (I know, generally business suited men do not want to hear that, but it's meant well!)
The biggest trends I've noticed so far on this thread are:
The general propensity of towards black or else muted colors.
The INXP tendency towards dressing down. Way down.
The ISTP love of black and muted colors?
The XNFJ tendency to put more effort into how they are dressed. I think there were about 3 posts including Lady Pinkerton (I would love to see your outfits!) from ENFJ women who have more extensive thought out warddrobes and are considered fashionable and dare i say well-planned -- well at least compared to low-maintenance INTPs.
And MagicPoriferan -- that's so cool you are guy who wears gloves and hats! Like Paris Hilton says, "That's hot."
It's so nice reading everyone's personal style. I wanna hear more!

Reason: Took the suggestion to replace 'high-maintenance' with variation of 'well-thought out'
