Whether you like it or not, you are judged by your clothes. It’s the easiest way to tell quickly how a person feels about themselves, how much money they make, or what their goals may be for the future. In fact, there are many scholars who’ve dedicated their time and energy to studying how clothes make a person feel and the messages they send to everyone else. If you don’t speak fashion, here are a few tips to help you communicate effectively:
Lean on classic pieces
Classics are classic for a reason. They work! And for people who are unsure what will work in any situation, it’s a great idea to stock up on key, classic pieces. Black is an easy color to focus on when finding staples for your wardrobe.
The right little black dress or blouse can be dressed up or down for any occasion. For men, a nice black suit is a choice that has stood the test of time. Other classic pieces for your wardrobe might include a white t-shirt, a good pair of jeans or a pair of heels that seem to go with anything.
Filling your wardrobe with classic pieces sends the message that you know what works for you and you’re not afraid to stand firm in your choices. You can always add colorful accessories to mirror current trends but don’t let yourself get carried away if that’s not your cup of tea.
Not every style works for every person. Search for styles that work for your body type and then fill your wardrobe with those items. Not sure what style works for you? Take a trusted friend with you on your next shopping trip. Promise to be brutally honest as you try on different styles and don’t be afraid to try multiple stores to find brands that work for you.
Finding the right shape and style of clothing sends the message that you are confident and also aware of how your choices impact others.
Find clothes that love you back.
The most important thing is finding clothes that make you feel good. When you feel good, you look good. Pay attention to how different fabrics, patterns, colors and brands make you feel when you are wearing them. This is often reflected to others when they see you. Keep in mind a few key words you’d like people to describe you as. When you see your clothes, would you describe them that way?
No matter what your style is, it’s also vitally important to keep your favorite pieces clean and sanitary. We can help with dry cleaning or laundry service that will help maintain the colors and shape of your clothes. Come see us today!
