You Are What You Wear! A Brief Take on the Psychological Effect of Clothing
As a society people bank on clothing as a status indicator. They use it to show their personality, their style, and sometimes their status in society. Having a personal identity among the crowd becomes an important factor. It takes a complete look to convey what you are trying to say with your clothing. If you are trying to impress an employer you wouldn't wear tennis shoes with a business suit or a pair of jeans with high heels. Wardrobe stylists and fashion consultants are sought after for choosing unique and suitable clothes.
The "I feel good" test:
Imagine you are in a sharp formal evening tux, pulling up your mirror shine shoes and straitening your bow tie.
How do you feel right now?
You are in a shabby shirt and a million year old jeans, casual shoes.
Now how do you feel?
Although you can't always be dressed in a tux, this example is to illustrate the power your dress has over your mind.
This is why the service of a wardrobe stylist is recommended in revamping not only your look, but how good you feel in those clothes. Consider it "easy therapy" in making you feel good.
