Think back to getting dressed this morning. Was the sun up? Did you wake up at your first alarm? Did you just throw on the first outfit you found, without any input from your personality, values, or self-image? Think again.
The psychology behind how we dress proves that the statement, “Oh this old thing?” is far from accurate.
Your style reveals a great deal about your personality. Each fashion choice, from dress to earrings to bag, reflects who you are and how you want to be perceived. According to a study in Psychology Today, people make quick, off-the-cuff judgments about your success based on how you dress. Even small changes in clothing style have a bearing on how people view you. The moral? Choose carefully.
Clinical psychologist Dr. Jennifer Baumgartner, author of “You Are What You Wear: What Your Clothes Reveal About You,” discusses the psychology of dress: “The worst clothing is the kind that tries to undo, ignore or hide where or who you are.”
