I dress based on my moods— but based on the mood I WANT to feel. I dress up most when I am sleepy, sick, or on my period because I need an extra boost of self-confident. I put effort into my outfits on test days because I want to feel awake and sharp. If I want to feel sexy while going out, I dress sexy even if I don’t feel it right away— but it always kicks in once I spent a little while in my clothes!posted about 5 years ago
I def. agree with you, lacyromo! What you wear does dictate how you feel! For example, if you wear sweats with a T-shirt, you feel lazy and tired (at least thats how I feel). If I dress up, I feel somewhat productive and confident! And then if I pick out a miniskirt & some boots to wear to go out, I feel sexy. I have a philosophy:: If you feel down or tired, dress up! It will make you feel 10x happier and more confident! :)))posted about 5 years ago
I certainly would say that what I’m wearing even effects the way I hold myself or move! If I wear a dress that could possibly blow up in a gust of wind I get all fretful about that happening. However, I dress how I want to feel. If I’m going to a club, even if I don’t feel confident, I’ll wear confident clothing, hoping that by some jolt of awesomeness that I instantly transform into a sleek confident person. Sometimes it helps, too!posted about 5 years ago
I also agree that clothes dictate feelings, for the most part. I know when I’m in a really good mood, or trying to put myself in a good mood I’ll wear an outfit that I think accentuates my best features, or makes me feel fly as hell, lol. And when I’m just like whatever, I’ll put on something comfortable and that I would also classify as stylish like jeans, and an interesting top, or flowy layers.posted about 5 years ago
The way I dress always dictates how I feel and vise versa. Hoodie and warmer clothes if i’m cold, sad, tired, etc. Boots and skirt if i’m in a perky, confident mood.posted about 5 years ago
I agree also, because when I wear a nice dress with heels, I feel sexy and confident. When I also wear a bow on my head with puffy skirt, with a cute top and flats, i tend to have a cute personality and people around me feel it and approach me in a warm way. But when I wear baggy pants with a hoodie, no one really approaches me because they know that i am not really in the mood to have a conversation with anyone. The only time i dress up like that is when i am too busy, tired or in a hurry to get something and get back home quickly without any disturbance.posted about 5 years ago
I’m the other way around; I dress in accordance to my mood. Sometimes (a lot of times) I plan my outfit so, like jerseyferrari, the emotion I’m feeling when I’m getting dressed aspect is taken out of it but I also change some things about the outfit when I put it on.
I wear what I want to at the moment and not really what will make me feel something else.
