So let’s say there’s this hypothetical situation where you’re sitting in a Starbucks sipping on your pumpkin spice double-pump cinnamon topped caramel latte, observing people that walk through the door. Maybe a dude walks in wearing a white silk tux on top of a maroon undershirt with sunglasses and gel in his hair. What can we gather from that? More than likely, he’s a businessman by day, party man by night. Or an avid Scarface cosplayer! Then, a girl walks in wearing high heeled boots, a black hoodie, and a nasal septum piercing. She’s probably pretty cool, honestly. Could be one of those trend starters with that piercing and all, or maybe a bull trapped in a woman’s body. We don’t judge. After that, a sketchy looking guy with a lumberjack beard in plain white button up with red stains all over walks in carrying an ax and gives you a look like you have “come at me, bro” written on your forehead. Yeah, you’re probably right, he probably just spilled his cherry Kool-aid all over himself on the way to his bi-weekly woodworking class. The last person walks in, a girl wearing square toed boots, a “Trump 2016” t-shirt under a camo jacket, and a Ducks Unlimited hat with the bill all rolled up. Hmm… what’s the first thing that pops in our heads? She probably likes fishing!
As you can clearly see, a person’s clothes can say a lot about them. It can be important to choose outfits carefully so that we all give off a good first impression. At the same time, though, our style is a great opportunity to express our individuality. Everyone is unique, and our wardrobe should reflect that- often times, it will even if we don’t want it to. Just make sure that you ask yourself if what you see in the mirror is a good reflection of who you are as a person every once in awhile. Seriously.
