If you are doing certain deity worship,or calling down the deity ,you must have kn the proper colors ,or they will not answer your request.
In Palo Mayombe ,they will actually attack you,if you have on improper colors,and women can not be menstruating
So I have other clothes....but I do not wear them socially ,ever.
Obatala is pure white. Sometimes you will see island types in all white. The women usually also wear white turban .I see it a lot in nyc,especially in the outer boroughs ,you know who their patron is when you see that .
Also in orthodox Judaism,I believe sometimes the men wear all white on certain days,but I don't know the origins or details why .
