Why what you wear matters
Here are 5 ways to upgrade your wardrobe

MANILA, Philippines – How do clothes affect your daily outlook?

In 2012, a group of social psychologists coined the term “enclothed cognition,” suggesting that people think using their bodies. They concluded that clothes influence how people view and interact with the world.

That’s why you show up to a job interview wearing something that makes you look smart and professional. For a night out, you want to be comfortable and be still have good style, so you wear something that highlights your physical features.

Dressing the part makes a big difference. You just have to make sure you find the inspiration to make sure that you do it in style.

Here are ideas to keep you inspired for your next look:

Use technology

You won’t run out of fashion inspiration when you search for fresh ideas on Instagram or follow digital style icons.

A style app can help you even more so you can get updates on the latest fashion trends right at your fingertips.

With an app, you can mix and match clothes to see what works, or get style inspiration right when you need it. As a bonus, you can also be alerted about promotions or sales for a whole new wardrobe.

Step out of your comfort zone

Trying new things – even if it’s just inside a dressing room – can help you find what suits you. If you have an upcoming event or a special occasion that you’d like to dress up for, it’s the perfect time to give a new style a try. A simple change in how you dress can make a huge difference.

Of course, make sure that you’re comfortable with whatever you try. If you feel good about it, most likely you look good in it.


Music, people, art – these are just some factors that can inspire your style. If you’re still trying to find your own style or you want to experiment with how you dress everyday, seek inspiration from the things you’re interested in. 

Keep an open mind and see how other people or things around you can inspire how you express yourself.

Mix things up

If you’re experiencing that ‘I have nothing to wear’ dilemma, mix things up. See how else your pieces can go together. There are no strict rules when it comes to fashion.

You just have to find what works best for you and what you believe will show off who you are.

Embrace change

Fashion is always changing. Trends come and go and even make occasional comebacks (hello, denim jumpsuits). It’s good to stay updated with the latest trends because at least you know that you have more options to work with.

You don’t have to follow every single trend, buy staying updated on what’s in can help you tweak your look when needed.

At the end of the day, your style and the clothes that you wear should best represent who you are. Let your wardrobe bring out the best in you. – Rappler.com
