Why clothing is a form of communication
So much of communication is non-verbal. We know that body language, facial expressions and tone can all be forms of non-verbal communication. But one form we often overlook is how we look. The truth is what we decided to wear each day is based on a set of emotions, our likes, and our mood that day. For example, if you're feeling rushed, or if you particularly don't care what you wear that day it shows, as opposed to taking time to think about how what we wear will affect how people portray us.
Why does this matter?
Putting thought into your style is beneficial in many ways - so many ways that I can't name them all - otherwise this blog would turn into a novel. After hearing what guys had to say, I was able to come up with a few key concepts.
How you can create your own personal style
I sat down and interviews three guys and asked them questions on how they find inspiration in their personal style. I have to admit, it was extremely insightful to hear their thoughts. They shared everything from where they like to shop, dressing for your body type and the importance of looking good and feeling comfortable.
A few tips from our guys
1) If you can have a smaller amount of quality clothing, that's the way to go rather than buying 100 shirts that aren't made well and will deteriorate fast.
2) Get creative, try on different things that work for you. Get a woman's opinion - bring someone with you shopping that you trust.
3) If you find what fits your body type and find what you're comfortable in. You'll be more likely to wear clothing you're comfortable in.
4) Sometimes more expensive doesn't mean it's "better."
