    Yes, but only as polka dots on a green dress.

    a wise woman Mrs. Weinberger of jerusalem taught me a nice clue as far as colors and Tznius
    she said our eyes can easily adjust to colors that appear alot in the world that Hashem created
    shades of black brown blue and green tan and yellow we see alot of
    this means they are comfortable to the eye and are tznius for women’s clothes too
    whereas red we have just here and there in some flowers so you may have thin lines or gentle designs of red in your clothing
    think for yourself if maroon is ok or may it hurt the eyes to see too much of and then it is not Tznius

    Maivin: Is it ok for guys using “Maivin” as a posting name to occasionally show signs of intelligence while trolling on social media??

    That seemed a bit harsh

    Why not? Fire engine red & bright yellow are harsh on the eye & attract attention, but maroon is a muted color. If you are looking for approval, you have mine.

    This is what Jews are worried about in 2021?

    Yabia – our concern for halacha…even the smallest kutzo shel yud, is unwavering and not dependent on anything else going on around us. “Alll Hashem has in this world is 4 amos of halacha”, it is everything to us

    When the baalei tosfos were about to be murdered by crusaders, their last energy they spent writing a regular tosfos on bava basra. They wrote it in their holy blood. They were martyred the following day.

    They didn’t write ethical exhortations or liturgical poems – the “big things” that a commoner would think of… they wrote nothing but halacha, and a halacha that isn’t practically applicable nonetheless.

    All we have is Hashem, and all He has is Torah.

    Dear fish
    As an expert in vision, I found your comment regarding colors that are found in nature very interesting. Their relationship to tznius is an insightful concept.
    There is almost no black in nature. The black that does exist is a product of fire , volcanic eruption and destruction.

    You’re comparing a chat room on “Yeshiva World” to Baalei Hatosfot? Good one! The issue here is an obsession with trivial minutiae that has no Toelet. Furthermore, these minutiae are almost always about Chitzoniut: what color, what length, what hat, what peyos, etc. Is Maroon tznius? Really? You guys have a nothing better to discuss?

    Black in nature? Night? That would be half of the world. Maybe you are thinking modern world where there’s ambient light all the time even away from the cities. Think being in a totally dark country side on a rosh hodesh…

    Jews always saw black as a sign of mourning. As rabban gamliel explained to some people who mourned constantly, it is not appropriate

    Yabia – you do realize you have done nothing but wander from thread to thread looking down your nose at people without actually contributing anything to remedy your complaints. Is that what Jewsdo in 2021?

    “Is that what Jews do in 2021?”
    Well, yes if you are suffering from terminal social media boredom on a 100 degree erev shabbos Cha’zon when everyone else you know has left the City for the Catskills.
