Personality is the impression that you cast upon people of who you are: it’s the way you present yourself to the world. Character is who you are. Regardless of what you do, your character will always find a way to reflect itself in your personality.
Your clothes can reveal a lot about who you’re. Actually, every way in which you express yourself can say a lot about who you are. However, this post is about what your clothes can reveal about you. It’s interesting how, a study of fashion is also a study of human behaviour.
Have you come across people who wear everything of the same colour? Maybe it’s a man who wears a white shirt with a white trouser? Maybe even his shoes are white! Maybe, even his fashion accessories are white. I’ve a theory: maybe, this is a reflection of alignment in their thoughts and actions; in who they think they are and who they are. This can also be a reflection of the kind of thoughts and beliefs that they have; maybe, their thoughts and beliefs are of the same shade.
Some people wear colours of similar shades: they pair light colours with light colours, bright colours with bright colours and dark colours with dark colours. I think that this reflects a similarity in their thoughts and beliefs. Perhaps, in their mind, several thoughts and beliefs of similar shades coexist. Also, this can be a reflection of similarity in who they think they are and who they are.
Have you seen anyone who likes to pair contrast colours? Maybe, the preference to pair contrast colours is a reflection of contrast thoughts and beliefs. Maybe, thoughts and beliefs of contrast nature coexist in their mind. Maybe, there’s a contrast in their thoughts and actions; in who they think they are and who they are.
A study of history of fashion can reveal a lot about the change that human behaviour has been going through. A few decades ago, pairing same colours was in fashion. A few years ago, pairing similar colours was in fashion. Lately, I’m seeing too many people pairing contrasting colours.
What do you think about what people wear reveals about them?
