How Clothing Communicates
Clothing communicates various facets of a person’s life, such as age, sex, lifestyle, occupation, religious belief. In addition, the dressing style of a person motivates, attracts and provides an indentity to him.
Our clothing should be in harmony with our personality and our surrounding, as clothing also possesses personality and can be classified as masculine or feminine, formal or casual. Colorful, attention-seeking clothing matches the personality of an outgoing person; a shy person will feel out of place with the attention that he will receive if he or she wears the same type of clothes. Clothing reflects our value system, attitudes and interests in life. Clothing also conveys our self-image, emotions and conformance to groups.
