Clothes are the material covering our bodies.
There is working or business attire, sportswear, club wear, casual wear and many more. Clothes should protect you from environmental influences and serves as a communication medium. In first place, it should prevent frostbites and heat exhaustions. On the other side, there are harmful clothes – for instance those that catch fire, melt, and cause severe burns. Clothes can have a mental effect. Now we are into fashion. You know about the desire to attract attention, be recognized and awake interests. Let us be honest: Everyone strives for individuality and variety. With fashion, you express your individual lifestyle, your current mood, desires, dreams, and visions. Hence, your clothes are a communication medium, which embraces a large spectrum of signals: In sports, the jersey identifies you as a member of a team. In addition, in the military, the uniform shows your rank.
Many people underestimate or overestimate the fashion factor. “I do not care what others think” or “the inner values count”. If you are running the risk to rank clothing too low, remember the fact that you are what you wear.
“XYZ said that that I look really good in it” Yeah, right. Actually, you can replace XYZ by your partner, friend, or a sales clerk. Appreciate others’ opinions. Yet take a decision on your own.
I am guilty as charged. Have shrinked many sweaters and grayed countless white shirts. Caring about clothes is important. Why? Well, you wear many of them every day, some every other day and others once a week.
