We all experience different moods and emotions, many times over the course of one day. Whether we’re feeling up or down, thrilled or bummed, stressed or calm, a positive, easy to achieve way to stay feeling happy and good all day can be influenced by the clothes we wear.
A mood is defined as a relatively long lasting emotional state. Our emotional state can be linked to the term “passion”, not only in pleasurable ways, but intense passion to pain and desire. Many people use the terms emotions and feelings interchangeably, although they aren’t entirely the same. I can be in an excited emotional state, see a wounded animal on the road, and immediately feel empathy for the animal, yet still maintain my overall excited state.
For all the fashion buffs in the world, you truly can change a mood or your attitude merely by changing your clothes!
Your Clothing Can Make You Feel Powerful
Think business suits. Researchers had certain people wear formal business attire and complete a series of five experiments that challenged their cognitive processing abilities. The people who dressed up felt significantly more powerful and in control of the situation than those who were dressed down.
Your Clothing Can Make You Feel Youthful, Playful and Sexy
Think the marvelous miniskirt!
Your Clothing Can Make You Want to Get in Shape
Think workout clothes to help take you to a level of health, fitness and beauty.
Your Clothing Can Make You Feel Trendy, Cool and Chic
What fabric of clothing is revered, recognized and worn by much of the population? Durable, desirable denim! Denim can be worn for beach excursions, outdoor events, sporting events, even dressy occasions if you pair upscale accessories with your denim! Oh, you glorious denim darling!
Your Clothing Can Cheer You Up
If you’re feeling down or in a rut, I guarantee you, dress in these thigh high boots and watch your mood and attitude jump sky high! Not only will you look like a daring fashion diva, but you’ll turn the heads of everyone who walks on by. Don’t you deserve to dress like the star that you are?
Your Clothing Can Make You Feel Feminine, Elegant and Sensual
For clothing that makes you feel like the fierce, confident girl that you are, I say go with a pencil skirt! Pencil skirts, paired with a form-fitted blouse or top and hot high heels keeps a girl looking gorgeous and sophisticated, as well as sultry and sexy. Whether you’re going to the office or a special lunch or dinner, an outfit put together around a pencil skirt is always an A+ winner!
Change your clothes, change your mood, change your attitude!
So don’t let yourself have another bad day! Let the clothes that you choose to wear wipe all your melancholy away!
“I’m planning to stay in tonight and just watch some TV.”
“You can do that anytime. Hit the town with me.”
“I’m feeling real tired and I don’t have much energy.”
“Change out of your frumpy sweats and you’ll feel better immediately.”
“I’ll put on my favorite dress and heels and color my lips with red gloss.”
“Splendid. I’ll do the same and your sour mood you can toss!”
Clothes really do make the woman and the man. Merely by the garments you wear you can keep your emotions and feelings “grand!” Great attitude, I give you a hand!
