Whether you realize it or not, every morning you create a look that embodies your style of dress.
A style of dress is not only the way you dress on a day-to-day basis. Above all, it is the way you present yourself to your direct or indirect entourage.
The importance of our clothing style and its impact on your relationships
Reflects your personality
Your look will be an expression of your emotional state. Unconsciously, you will often choose your clothes according to your mood for the day. The colours of these clothes will have a major impact on your decision. Quite often, when a person gets up on the wrong side of the bed, he or she will tend to wear dull colours. On the other hand, if that same person gets up in a good mood, he or she will wear brighter colours.
Similarly, wearing a particular look will affect your emotional state.
If you are aware that each garment and colour has its own properties, then you can use them wisely and thus encourage your subconscious to change your mood.
You had that moment when you were wearing an almost perfect outfit. The right size, perfect fit, and the colours you chose made you smile more. Just by wearing this outfit, you felt more confident and comfortable interacting with strangers in the online community.
The impact of your style
You often hear the saying, “clothes don’t make the man”. This saying exists precisely because you constantly make snap judgements about the people you meet. You also tend to have preconceived ideas about the average person based on the way they talk, move, and dress.
It only takes a few seconds for a person to make judgements about another person. These judgements go far beyond how you are dressed and how well you look.
A study was carried out in the UK with over 300 people. They looked at pictures of a man for only three seconds before making ‘snap judgements’ about them. In some pictures, the man was wearing a tailored suit. In others, he was wearing a completely similar model. The differences in the suits were very minor – only the colour, fabric and cut were different. All this while ensuring that the model’s face was pixelated so that there could be no hidden messages in the facial expressions.
After only three seconds of seeing the images, people judged the man more positively in the tailored suit. And the verdicts were not about how good he is in his outfit.
They rated him as more flexible, more successful, and with higher earnings in a tailored suit than when he was wearing the alternative.
