WHAT LANGUAGE DO YOUR CLOTHES SPEAK?
The truth is people are constantly judging you by your clothes either unconsciously or consciously. Many of us have made quick assessments about someone based on what clothes they were wearing at different points in time. The way you look says a lot about you and how you feel about yourself. Some individuals might not think about what they wear and how it’s all put together because they feel it’s not that important or because they don’t have the time. The point is, it does matter because the way you look is a form of self expression that also impacts how people see or treat you. Your style speaks for you without you saying a word. What language are your clothes speaking?
If what we wore and how it’s all put together didn’t matter, then why does the banking industry have a recommended standard of dressing for the bankers? Why do the fast food restaurants care about the way their staff look, or even the airline hostesses’ care about maintaining uniformity with the way they look? The truth is what we wear matters and I am not saying it has to be high end designers; you don’t want to be a slave to trends either. It’s important to find and wear pieces that show your personality. Since everyone’s finances are all different, you don’t have to spend an arm and a leg to look fantastic. Always remain true to yourself while incorporating what’s in style to suit you as an individual without losing your own sense of style with confidence. The next time you think what you are wearing doesn’t matter, think again. The two styles featured give a great visual of how what we wear and how we wear it matters. What language are the images in the pictures saying to you?
