96% of women believe that what they wear affects how confident they feel.
Your style and the clothes you choose reflect and affect your mood, health, and overall confidence. Scientists call this phenomenon “enclothed cognition.” Basically, when you dress in nicer clothes, you feel better.
When we put on a piece of clothing we cannot help but adopt some of the characteristics associated with it, even if we are unaware of it.
Your choice of attire has powerful feedback effects; it sends internal messages which can boost or dampen your mood and even alter your thought processes and capabilities. What we wear affects how we feel so much that is can distort and determine our thoughts and judgements.
