How Your Wardrobe Reflects Your Life
Some people were born to make a fashion statement, but others simply wear whatever clothes appeal to their personalities. No matter which category you fall under, your wardrobe tells something about who you are. Whether you prefer glamorous clothes, comfortable outfits, or something in between, your wardrobe is a reflection of your life.
It is no secret that someone’s choice of clothing says something about them. For instance, you might assume that someone who wears a lot of tight-fitting exercise clothes is a fitness fiend and proud of it. Generally, the more revealing the clothing is, the more confidence you can assume the wearer has. Perhaps the more conservative the wearer, the more reserved their personality is, at least in some settings. Colors and other features can also give clues about the person behind the clothes.
Some people choose to wear different types of outfits for different occasions, which further reflects on who they are. You might even know someone who always wears conservative, cleanly pressed pantsuits to work, but enjoys putting on outrageous heels and unique dresses at nighttime events. This person is showing through their wardrobe that they are an interesting free spirit who also happens to take their job seriously. There are many other ways people can convey specific messages about their personalities through their choice of clothing.
There may be times when you do not think your wardrobe accurately reflects your life. Sometimes you are just too busy to do extra laundry, or have too little time to spend a lot of energy on your clothes. While your wardrobe might accurately convey that you are a busy person, it does not fully show the type of person you are. There are, however, a few tricks that can help you choose a fun, reflective wardrobe without spending hours shopping or washing clothes.
For one, choosing the right accessories can emphasize an otherwise drab outfit. You can show off your unique personality by pairing bright, patterned shoes with a plain shirt or dress. Spice it up further with some colorful jewelry and people will see pieces of your personality shining through. Choose accessories and clothes that appeal to you the most. For instance, people who love simple elegance might choose thin gold jewelry to match a plain, flirty dress. On the other hand, someone who prefers bright colors and unusual pieces could show off their artsy personalities with big, chunky jewelry or an eye-catching vintage dress.
If you feel like your true personality is hiding behind the wrong type of clothing, think carefully next time you go shopping or choose a combination of clothes and accessories for a big event. When you put just a little extra thought into how you dress your body, even your casual, everyday clothing can start to better reflect the life you live.
