Our wardrobe and dress style is an indicator of the type of person we are. Clothing choices help us to identify with our peers, fit into a variety of social settings, and mark us as belonging to a particular group or society. Just as we like to feel comfortable in our bodies, by extension we also want to feel comfortable in knowing that our dress sense accurately represents us.
It’s easy to get excited when shopping for casual clothes, or when selecting a special item for a fun occasion or event. However, searching for work clothes can be a different story altogether. Work clothes don’t always match our personality and are often worn to conform to fairly strict guidelines, depending on your field of employment. Spending money on such items suddenly feels much less like fun and more like work. Work clothes can be rather bland and unexciting, plus very expensive. They usually can’t be too outrageous, grungy or revealing.
