Who doesn’t like to look good?
We all know looks are important the question has always been why?
External factor – also known as a “thin-slicing” —we make quick judgments about personality on the basis of facial expression, posture, and clothing. “Business Insider” article says that clothes don’t just affect your confidence levels, they can affect your success, as “clothing significantly influences how others perceive you and how they respond to you.”
Internal factor – would you believe that something as simple as style and the clothes you choose reflects and affects your mood, health, and overall confidence. Scientists call this phenomenon “enclothed cognition”
Dressing with confidence is more than wearing the latest fashion trend, it’s about feeling good about what you’re wearing, looking poised and feeling self-assured in all situations.
