It is often said that you should dress according to your personality. As they say, “a man is recognized by his dress and address”, this phrase does not get restricted to men alone, and it applies to all. “We wear to impress ourselves”, only technically- this is what we think and tell ourselves as well as others while we go out with our favorite top or pair of jeans, but that is not the case deep inside us, right? The inside us always gets conscious about what others think about our dress and our looks!
The clothes we wear are like a powerful message or code sent to the ones who see it- it could be our friends, our family, and even strangers. Hence the need comes for us to dress “properly”. There is a lot more psychology on the topic of dressing and their impact on the people who see it. Many psychological surveys have time and again proved that the way in which the other person dress, also change the way in which we look, and perceive them.
The above statement can be illustrated through an example. If a person dresses heavily, with a good deal or ornaments, ripped jeans and gold bracelets, you will get to know that that particular person is a party freak and a hip-hop lover. But at the same time, if you see another person with a formal shoe, check shirts and trousers, you will quickly get hold of the fact that he must be a simple office going person, who loves to keep it simple. This is the power of dressing. It makes the other person understand what you are, and for what you are dressed.
Steps to consider before going out-
However, there are certain steps which you should look before getting that perfect look. While you should wear what you like, you should also not simply go out wearing rags! Here are some tips to get the perfect attire for yourself-
Do not go for tight clothes- yes, wearing tight clothes, does give you an appealing look, but ladies you should not do so while risking the space of your body to breathe! You should always be careful to select a breathable fabric for your body which is appealing via “exposing” those curves at the same.
Keep your body in mind- no one knows your body well than yourself! Thus, you should get the dress which will give you the perfect shape according to your shape. This is not related to body shaming, but something indeed related to simple logic. For example, it is not at all wise to go for a crop-top if you have a protruding belly.
Consider your comfort- dressing was something meant to keep yourself covered from heat, cold and dust, centuries ago. But now, things have changed. Now, it is for the people that we dress. It is “dress to impress”. But never compromise with your comfort, in the quest to impress. You should be able to know where you feel good - does not matter if it is a t-shirt or a Kurti too! Dress as per your comfort.
The attire you carry should reflect you- the dress you wear, or the t-shirt you have put on should speak for you. It should not be worn just because it is in the trendsetters’ list. Your wardrobe should reflect upon you, what you are and what you as a person is. A viewer should get to know what your style is just by looking at your dress!
