The concept of feeling a little special when you dress up well is a well-known fact. It gives us understood confidence altogether. You put up a great suit or a dress for that matter and take a walk, people notice for sure. However, there is more to it.
While we have a bunch of trendy looks to choose from, there is nothing as classy as a formal look. You might have come across the term ‘dress for success.’ That counts for something. While multiple studies reveal about instilled confidence that can affect your performance mentally and physically when we dress up, another study states that it can also make you more successful.
A new study revealed that people who were well dressed tend to be more successful than those who don’t. The study used 128 men aged between 18 and 32 who took part in mock negotiations of buying and selling. And the results were self-explanatory.
Co-author of the same study says that this shows how people perceive better-dressed people. There was a sense of heightened respect for this individual which was missing in the case of the former.
Backing up the same, another study also says that it affects your way of thinking. People who are decked up and presentable, have high dreams for themselves while others connect with minor details.
Well, it can also be explained as simple psychology. Wearing sweat pants will not give you a nudge to do anything productive while dressing up good will fill you up with ambition.
So, the next time when you head to work, even if it's a Monday, make sure you chase success by doing one activity right- dress up like you're out to conquer the world and then nothing can stop you from being successful.
