Your clothing choices are a form of non-verbal communication, so what are you communicating through your signature style? When people think about body language, they think of subliminal signs that people use, and the same outlook applies to the clothing that a person wears. The type of clothing that a person dresses in is another form of body language. What we now see is how people use clothing to signify their age, gender, political views, and their economic class. While you might think that you have never judged a person solely on their clothing you probably have.
What we now know is that even before a person speaks a person is judged, first impressions are critical and clothing is one of the most significant factors in first impressions. The I don’t care mindset is old and outdated we expect certain people to dress a certain way before we learn anything about their credentials. Professional people and all leaders acknowledge and accept this as fact. How you choose to embrace this nonverbal form of communicating will always be a deciding factor to your success.
