Reasons Why You Should Dress Well

Dressing well is what attract people to you initially not your intellect, personality or sense of humour. Read on to find out more!!!

1. The way you are dressed is the way you’ll be addressed


Come to think of it, you respect someone who is dressed well say a nice shirt or blouse and trousers and you
are more likely to despise someone who is shabbily dressed, right? QED!

2. Dressing boosts your confidence: 

If have ever dressed better than you used to do once or twice, you’ll agree with me that your confidence level was at its peak at that moment. Sources of this confidence ranges
from the look full of admiration on the faces of people to the compliments you receive from them . Seeing reasons to start dresssing well yet?

3. It helps improve your lifestyle

A better lifestyle results into a better you.

4. It attracts the opposite sex


Guys, you might have probably heard that a well dressed guy is far more attractive than a shirtless dude with abs. This is not to say you shouldn’t be fit but dressing well + a fit body is what gives the most desirable look- so next time you are about to put on a rumpled shirt; think twice!

For the ladies, a fitting dress makes you more beautiful and attractive.

5. Your first impression on a person matters a lot if not absolutely

I’m sure you know what this means right. When a person sees you for the first time, they are likely to quickly decide if they want to be associated with you. Your appearance has a lot to do with your impression so dress well all the time.

Conclusion: Dressing well does not mean that you’ve got to dress up in suits or formal clothes all the time but wearing what is clean, put together, fits, flatters and most importantly appropriate for the situation!
