Have you ever woken up in the morning, looking through your wardrobes/bags looking for the perfect clothing for the day? If you wake up feeling upset, what kind of clothing would you pick for the day?
Not all the Fashionista you envy out there were born with a fashion sense, their sense of fashion got developed as they grew and this was influenced by their mood.
Consciously or Unconsciously, at a different point in time, your mood has influenced your choice of clothing for each day. You might not know it because you haven’t paid much attention to it.
Your mode of dressing this morning was influenced by your mood without you realizing it.
Here are 3 ways to Know how your mood affects your clothing choice.
1. A date:
For instance, you are having a date with someone, this is on two sides. If the date is with someone you love or you are trying to impress, you will feel all giddy, happy, mushy-mushy and you wouldn’t want to dress wrongly because you want to impress the person you are going on a date with, As a result of this mood, you spend hours searching through your wardrobe looking for the perfect dress or suit that suits the date, ranging from the colour, design, etc. Your happiness helps you come up with the perfect colour and design.
On the other hand, if the date is with someone you don’t love, probably it is a matchmaking date or you are going just to get the person off your back, you won’t feel too happy or secured about going and you wouldn’t mind dressing anyhow. Why? Because you are not happy about going, and you are not seeking to Impress such a person, you can decide to go for black colour or any other colour or design that looks weird and isn’t suitable for such occasion.
If you are slated for an interview, you’ll be nervous, but you still need the confidence to spike it all up. For someone who has been sending CVs to different companies but was never called to an interview, if he/she eventually gets one,.
The mode of dressing will ooze confidence because it was picked from the mood of happiness and nervousness. Unlike someone who has gone for different interviews but keeps getting rejected, he/she might get dressed based on “it will still end up the same way”.
3. Party/Occasional wears:
Suits/Cooperate wears aren’t suitable for socializing when it comes to parties/events that are not associated with work. You wouldn’t want to socialize with your friends on a TGIF for a drink and got all dressed up in a suit, that has reduced the vibes level. Suit signifies a level of seriousness that shouldn’t be defiled. So when it comes to socializing, you will be all happy and you will come up with bright colours and matching shoes to match the occasion. Just as Black on Black is considered for mourning in parts of Nigeria, you wouldn’t wear such to a wedding.
There are different ways our clothing has been affected by our moods. If you wake up feeling upset, moody, sad, frustrated, etc. You will lack the strength to start looking for clothes, you just pick anything your eye catches or your hand touches. But, when you wake up happy and energized for the day, you keep trying different outfits until you get the one that perfectly suits you.
One’s mode of dressing speaks one mood and tells the personality once you are seen.
