If you work on live TV/anything backstage like theatre you must must wear black or they won't even let you on set. But photoshoots and most other things like music vids etc are much more relaxed so i just wear whatever

I wear whatever I'm comfortable in.  I always make sure I have a t-shirt or vest top on incase it gets really hot but also take something warm to wear.  You never know if a studio is going to have heating or not!

From a photography point of view black is best.  For example, you may be in the studio for retouching makup – or helping out as an assistant on a TF shoot. If you wear a white/brightly coloured top it can show in the reflection of an eye shot/window etc. These reflections are not easily fixed in photoshop. Black will not cause the photographer any problems.
