How to Make an Impression

When it comes to our personal sense of style, we hope it reflects our inner selves and represents us well, but we also hope it impresses others. It’s only natural, as both sides of that coin trace back to our nature as social animals. Just about everything about us from a biological standpoint is “designed” to make us better at cooperating with each other, and that includes how we present ourselves in terms of our appearance. So, how do we best meet these two criteria of our appearance? How do we best represent ourselves and make ourselves likable and approachable to others? Here are a few small tips to do just that.

First and foremost, the best and easiest way to express ourselves via our wardrobes is to incorporate our favorite color, or colors, into our outfits. Your favorite color says a lot about you, as you can probably guess. The color red speaks to your passionate nature, while blue says you’re a creative person, for example. However, to meet our second criterium, you also need to coordinate your favorite color with other colors. So, for example, if you like blue, incorporate some yellow into your outfit, as well, to create a cohesive feeling that’s pleasing to the idea.

Another way to express yourself via your clothing is to wear graphic tees showing off something you’re interested in. If you like video games, for example, try showing the world you favorite games. This way, you’re not only expressing yourself, but you’re also saying to others that you like X, and they also like X, the two of you have something in common and might make good friends. Either way, don’t be afraid to add new and interesting items to your wardrobe from a retailer like True Religion to really show your best self.
