We are homo sapiens, the way we choose to appear disclosed the hierarchy we had in the tribe. The leader of the group was dressed up in a different way so he could be recognized easier as the Alpha Male. Ancient Egypt is also an example of how clothes were proving the status and the power of the person who wore them. Clothes are not only serving practical issues, they are also a way of non verbal communication, meaning that our clothes are giving informations to others without saying a word. For example if you see a man dressed in leather pants, you will assume that he might listen to a hard rock kind of music, or if you see a girl that she's dressed up old fashion (so-called grandma style), you may assume that she's shy. However, sometimes the information might not be true, but people are hardwired to read signs and wrong signs might be misunderstood easily. Think about a girl who choses to wear a really short skirt, that doesn't necessarily means that she's easy to get, but she's giving a wrong impression to others.
Clothes are mirroring our personality and if we don't know who we are, we'll make the wrong choices and giving impressions we don't want to. However, there's always room to change and creating some self-awareness so here are some tips for you in order to find your style.
