The Clothes We Wear Have an Impact On Us

When I received my formal image management consulting training, one of the biggest takeaways I received from my mentor, Judith Rasband, CIM, is this:

We talk all the time about the first impressions we make when meeting other people for the first time. But before that can happen, the first impression we make is on ourselves when we get dressed in the morning. Long before you can impact anyone else, the clothes you wear will impact you first.

I would challenge you to become more aware of the impact your clothing has on the way you think, the way you feel, and the way you act.

If you’re having a down day, the quickest way you can turn it around is to put on some nice clothes — something that inspires you. Put on some makeup, do your hair. You’ll be amazed at what a big difference your appearance has on how you feel.

Have you seen the effect that clothing has on the way you think, feel, act, and how others react to you?

    So so true! I have had foot problems for the past year and have basically had to stop wearing any cute shoes. It's amazing how shoes alone can ruin an outfit and make you feel shlumpy all day!

    Thank you for your wonderful comments and compliments :) Glad to share this city with such a talented lady!

    Catie I\’m sorry to hear about your foot problems — sacrificing heels is a big deal. As a dancer, my ankles aren\’t what they could be so I find myself wearing flats most days as well. I still have a closet full of \”sitting shoes\”… One of my faves for flat shoes are Born Shoes — like walking on clouds.

    My pleasure, happy to connect with another stylish lady! :)
