Is your character reflected in the way you dress?

  • Actions are by Intentions

    Every action has a Intention..

    Why do we choose to buy or to wear the clothes we have?
    Is the intention to be cosy? Attractive ? Revealing? Modest?
    I always wondered why a Lady would show her cleavage.. What is her intention?
    I believe What we wear is a true reflection of the heart.

  • You make a conscious decision.

    You make a conscious decision to put an article of clothing or something of the sort on yourself, and your decisions reflect you as a individual. You commit murder, therefore you are a murderer and possess bad moral character. You wear a plain white tee and even that shows that you like plain white t shirts and THAT reflects your character. Your decisions define you. When you go shopping, you only buy what you like, and when you wear it, you advertise that fact. So you show off your personality and reveal your character to those who see you. Make sense?

  • The choice of your clothing speaks Louder than the talk

    The motives of ones character is always seen by what they wear. People will always judge you by the looks. If you present yourself in cheap clothing or rugs to important people, the impression of you will be the first they remember about you. When we attend interviews, we all dare to dress presentable. You always sell yourself by your looks. No wonder they say seeing is believing and actions speak louder than words.

  • I agree dress makes all the difference

    People's choices in all things reflect their character, even down to the details of their clothing.

    People instinctively recognize that if one chooses to wear expensive clothing, one is making an intentional statement, perhaps showing one's wealth or taste. Likewise, one is making a statement of another kind if one chooses to wear inexpensive clothing. Though, the statement, in this case, may be that clothes are not of great importance. Those who dress to accommodate the latest fashions show that they value keeping up with trends. A person's choice to wear clothing that flatters them, or that doesn't, makes a statement about their body image and self-image. Further, there's scientific research to support the idea that sartorial clues, the details of one's clothes, do have significant meaning, at least within a specific culture, to the other members of that culture.

  • Because we have the freedom to dress any way we please, I do believe that our clothes reflect our character.

    Fashion has always been an important form of self-expression. Since every person chooses their own clothes, I do believe that our clothes are a reflection of our character.

  • When a person dresses himself or herself, then their character is expressed by their choice of clothing.

    Anytime a person puts on clothes, they are expressing something about themselves. That is why we have so many clothing stores, and why so much money is spent on clothes. People like to choose their own clothes and express themselves by what they wear. People can talk a lot, but their clothes really talk more.

  • Clothing is the first impression but it is never the last impression.

    Clothes aids in establishing self - identity while social- interaction, but it can't be a complete index of a person . We can just get a glimpse of a person personality by clothing not the whole look . And the best example can be Ghandhi ji " simple dressing and high thinking"

  • We miss out on many opportunities by judging by appearance only.

    This happens a lot. Dressing varies from land to land, and therefore judging personality on the basis of the dress someone wears is ridiculous. It doesn't even matter whether the dress looks good on him/her or not. Personality is reflected by a person's behavior, manner of speaking, and in carrying of himself.

  • True character is reflected in how we behave, not how we dress.

    Clothing is quite often used as costume, to convey a character or persona, which may or may not truly reflect a person's character. Bikers have a specific dress code, as do goths, preppies and prostitutes. Ted Bundy dressed preppy and was a serial killer. Bikers appear as social outcasts, rebels, and violent in nature, yet many live middle-class lives with loving families. We miss out on many opportunities by judging by appearance only.

  • Some people place more value on appearance than others.

    Some people put careful thought into selecting their wardrobes. They select colors, patterns and fabrics that they believe reflect who they are. Others, however, see clothing as strictly utilitarian and put much less consideration into selecting wardrobe items. Clothing as a reflection of character, therefore, cannot be a universal assumption about everyone.

  • Clothing was meant to be chosen by one's taste, but society took control which diluted any character accuracy.

    What is more basic to a person's choice then what they adorn their appearance. No two people have the same thoughts, perspectives, or desires. So the result of their tastes in attire would likely differ according to the availability, fit, and positive accent as to how they want to present their appearance. Then the agency of individuality was set aside, when society started deciding what people could choose to wear. The factors of gender and sex were not the determining motives for what people wore, until society made it an issue. Who wore what was scaled by the social attitude of the period, which has changed back and forth over the ages of time. Even today, there are fashion anomalies that contradict stereotypical standards.

  • Never ever link apearence with morality and character

    My appearance and character are totally not linked.Dressing is a question of taste and attractiveness instead of a question of character.If we've had clash over what I want to wear,it's prudent to simply say that dress does not flatter me like this one does,or doesn't fit as well or is simply ugly.But never immoral.Beacause clothes have nothing to do with my character or morality

  • Your brain does not stop working when you are naked. It's your choice.

    Firstly, this is my opinion. You can choose to agree or disagree.

    Your attitude, your character. They are all choices that you make. If you lean on, "first impressions", there's the 50% chance that it might end up in disappointment. How you want to react to what people do to you, it is still your choice. You can do it nicely or harshly.

    Problem that I see is that people have been programmed to certain traits that makes things a "social norm". To the very extent that there is a detailed specification of what to wear for occasions. It doesn't mean that you can come down in a swim suit to a funeral. Doing so means you need psychological check ups.

    What a am directing to is going down to the basics. Going out, wear clothes. Going swimming, wear swim wear.

    In the very end, its what you can contribute to the community, not entirely on how you look, but what you can do. Clothes don't have mouths to say what you are.

    My experience, i go around wearing jeans and shirt. One time, i asked a formally dressed man for direction, i get ignored. However, i get my directions from a man wearing as simple as a T-shirt and bermudas. Well so much for first impressions.

    So you tell me what is going on with the society nowadays. Is that the right character for someone who wears formally? Or is it the other way round? I am asking for those who think that the dress code reflects your character.

  • Even a gangster dresses himself in a suit...

    Clothes, I think might reflect ones personality but not character...
    There are many heartless people all dressed with lavish dressing because they have excellent store of money to buy the stuff....That simply doesn't mean that a simply dressed guy who is not up with the trend is a man of bad moral values..I think he has to adjust with what he can manage...After all even beggars in rags can be kind..

  • In contemporary world, expensive dresses are not easily affordable.

    Not all the people can afford expensive good looking dresses but that doesn't mean those who can't afford them are lesser or bad people in any social sense. Vice versa, those who don expensive clothing are not good people all the time. Corrupt also dress well. Attention seekers go extra mile in their dressing. This is more true in case of Pakistan unfortunately and reflects the decay in social values.

verbs can talk more than clothes or appearance
