You are addressed after your dressing!The mental health state of every human being can be determined extensively by the clothes that they wear, or by their appearance or outlook. An insane person for instance needs not introduce him as everyone will be cautious not to move close to him. Even someone that is normal can be mistaken for an abnormal person by their outlook.
What you wear can inform any passerby of your type of employment, as well as your ambitions, emotions and spending habits. You essentially express yourself through clothing, but clothes also don’t define a person.
Whether you say a word or not, what you’re wearing is talking. Your clothing could be talking softly, or it could talking very loudly. Your clothing speaks long before you do!
Clothing can communicate your position in the company and how much you need the other person’s business in a sales situation. It can also tell what your attention, or lack of attention to detail.
What you wear and how you wear it, when you look good and you feel good, and your clothes communicate the exact message that you want to convey, the result is pleasant.
Your wardrobe communicates trust, wisdom, status, and wealth. It reveals how conservative you are, or how much of a risk taker you are. If I listed all of the things that one’s wardrobe does, and how it communicates the message when it’s all put together, they would take up the rest of this article. They are truly that powerful. Whether you are making first impressions, building relationships, or enjoying the relationships you’ve already built, your clothing is always communicating.
Your appearance has a lot to talk about you. It is the only fruit that people can see and predict your inside. If you dress mad, you are mad. If you appear shabby, you are stupid. If you dress nude, you are a Harlot. If you dress half-nude, you are idiot/way-ward. These, among others, are the conclusion in the mind of the people. Therefore, you are taken and addressed based on these conclusions.
Dress the way you want to be addressed. We live in a world that judges a book by its cover, that’s reality. So how do we step up to the plate and let our appearance match the content of our words. Not an easy task indeed. Many barriers which makes wearing the apparel you desire a challenging task. Expensive does not mean classy, comfort should be the main criteria. When I say comfort I don’t refer to jeans when going to an interview, I mean wearing something that makes you confident.
The following tips will help you chose the right dressing:
- Send the intended message
Though it may be quick and easy to throw on the first thing you see, your appearance speaks volumes about you.
If you look like you just rolled out of bed, most people will assume you just did. Regardless of the type of business you’re in, strive to look your best and live up to the expectations of your audience.
- Dress to boost your confidence
We all know that when you look good, you feel better: You’re more confident and others treat you with more respect. Your physical presentation should be on par with the quality of your work and the reputation of your business.
Looking your best is about investing in self-improvement. Keeping high standards for your appearance will help you feel happier and more successful.

- Make your appearance a priority
Many executives put their appearance on the back burner because of obligations to work and family. Although your schedule may be packed, make your appearance a priority on the day of a speech.
Before your presentation, schedule some extra time to select an appropriate outfit. To look your best every day, dedicate resources toward long-term investments like clothing purchases, hair maintenance and self-care.
What does your wardrobe say about you? Are your clothes communicating that you’re done and tired of business and the problems of life, or are they conveying how serious you are about what you do, or that you enjoy what you do? The crazy part of it all is that your clothing sends this message long before you even say a word.
It’s not about brands or styles. It’s about how it fits, how it feels, and what it makes you feel.
