If you haven’t appreciated its worth yet, here are some of the benefits one can get from fashion (or at least from donning clothes properly and with a sense of style):
You’re taken more seriously – Whether we like it or not, people who look shabby and untidy will not only turn off the people around them, they may also not be accorded the respect they should get. Being fashionable doesn’t have to mean you follow the dictates of the latest trends. If you look decent enough and you dress up appropriately to the occasion you’re attending, you’ll get a favorable impression from others.
You can get Mr. or Ms. Right easier – Even though beauty is in the eye of the beholder, we have to accept the fact that we look at something or someone when an object or a person visually appeals to us. If you’re on the hunt for your future spouse, your chances of finding an ideal partner gets higher if your fashion sense is good enough to get a second long glance.
You gain more confidence – It’s true that some people don’t need to look stylish to feel confident, but it does make a difference if you know you’re wearing something decent, appropriate and good-looking every time you go out. This can certainly boost your confidence in the way you deal with people wherever you go.
You tend to get valued more – If you look nice and clean and stylish, people value you a lot more compared to just putting on the first outfit you see in your closet or clothes rack. If you pay attention to what you wear, it shows that what other people think about you matters a lot to you. People will notice your effort and will reward you by valuing you more.
