HOW CAN CLOTHES CHANGE YOUR MOOD?

Studies show that when someone does not dress or look their best, their self-esteem plummets. Studies also show that your no one even notices this difference until you let it affect you directly. This is called, "THE SPOTLIGHT AFFECT". "People think that they are the center of attention,", says Robert Ridge (BYU). That is exactly why people let the clothes they wear affect the way they feel about themselves. They don't know that no one notices, they believe that everybody notices. Therefore, they become self-conscious and let it affect their mood.

DO YOUR CLOTHES AFFECT THE WAY PEOPLE LOOK AT YOU?

The answer is simple......YES! People though however hard we try are breed to make a first impression based on only appearance. Therefore, if you are looking for a new group of friends, are you going to talk to the people who don't share immediate similarities with you or the ones who do? Although you may find that people who don't dress like you may have many things in common with you, the brain is forced to make a guess on only what it immediately sees. So dress to impress.
