Your Dress Says a Lot Before You Speak

The very first expression your personality has upon other people is left by the dress you are wearing. It is accepted by majority of people that clothing choices are rarely neutral and your inner secrets can easily be read by the other. It was reported on Coco Chanel once that “If a woman is badly dressed, it’s the dress we’ll notice; but if she is impeccably dressed, it’s the women herself we’ll notice.”


So, it can be alternatively said that your dress speaks a lot about your inner personality before you even open your mouth to say something. Most of us have no plans to change our wardrobe since we like what pleases us and not what people have to think about it. However, people do assume a lot of things from our attire and this has a significant influence on our overall reputation.

Clothing tells a lot about us, sometimes more than we would like to reveal to others. There are a lot of people who dress up without thinking much about this particular aspect and therefore, believe that their dressing do not send any messages to others. This is a huge misconception and we have to realize that our clothes will speak for us, albeit our silence.


Neat and clean clothes would loudly say that the person has a high self-respect and also respect other, alone with being disciplined and very well organized. You would notice that even simplest and casual clothes can create such impression whilst expensive yet wrinkled outfits will betray your sloppy side to soil your entire personality.

The clothing sense you have can attract huge respect or bring great disrespect for you. That is why you have to consider appearing as appropriate as possible. Your little body exposure will arouse a polite and gentlemanly gaze or look, what you wear spears before you do, so you better shout confidence, respect, self-dignity and power by dressing appropriately.

The key to dress suitably is to be yourself, especially when you are out in public. Why would you try to wear something just to meet the prevailing trends when you are not feeling comfortable with it? All these things come down to our individual way of thinking and how we want people to think of us. Stop going for the flashy clothing just to catch some attraction and stand different from others by depicting your true self through your clothing. Always remember that your dress says a lot before you speak!

  1. Hmm. More often than not, looks can be really deceiving. I don’t judge people by their outward appearances, and this matter, their clothing. It’s just outward adornment. What is in the heart and mind matters more to me. So I really have to wait for a person to begin talking, if you know what I mean 🙂

  2. I always prefer comfort over style when choosing my clothes. That way, I will look confident and relaxed in whatever outfit I’m wearing. — Tetcha Figuerres

  3. I couldn’t agree more!!! Super true. Your personality speaks for itself with how you carry your outfit! 🙂

  4. Sabi nga, “dress to impress” because how you present yourself to the world is how they will treat you back 🙂

  5. While your clothes will sya a lot about you, I somehow think that this should not be the basis of “judging” someone. Somehow, clothings and fashion statement, cause a lot of prejudice to people.

  6. super agree! and first impression always lasts, so make a good impression by dressing properly 🙂

  7. I really agree with you! Kaya nga we must put some importance in dressing up. We must make sure na we look decent wherever we go. Indeed, our clothes can make or break us.

  8. True, dressing appropriately is part of the first impression we make on people and it does reflect on our personality.

  9. I agree. Our personality will reflect on the clothes that we wear, and the color as well! Hehehehehe!

  10. I super agree with this!! That’s why I always try to dress my best, especially when attending social gatherings. Plus, “being well dressed is a beautiful form of politeness.” =)

  11. It’s true! I actually did not care about clothing before (I’m always in your usual jeans and t-shirt) but as time went by, I realized that clothes and looks are the first thing people see. It’s not like they’d talk to you and get to know you on a deeper level agad. With that being said, putting an effort when dressing or at least making yourself presentable makes a good impression.

  12. Well said. I believe that too. The way we carry ourselves with our choice of clothing will sure reflect who we are. It’s very important to look at the mirror before heading out.

  13. I agree with all of this. I’d rather have a comfy dress than have something of high fashion when I can’t even breathe. Thanks for sharing! 🙂

  14. So true! It’s really a no no to wear something you’re not comfortable with because people will always notice and confidence is not there. I’m honestly more comfy with just jeans and white shirt. 😀

  15. I love just being myself and wearing comfortable clothes. Indeed what we wear says a lot about ourselves. ♥

  16. so true! and as old cliche goes, there’s so much impression during first time meetings so whatever happens, arrive in style. better be overdressed than underdressed in the fashion world!

  17. Couldn’t agree more. And yeah, it’s also important that one dresses according to his/her age. 🙂

  18. Agree much with your thought. But to me girls are more beautiful if you undressed her. ha..ha..ha.. Joke lang po.

  19. Could agree here, i have bad clothes choices sometimes and i assume that people stares at me like i’m some kind of crazy..hehehehe

  20. Our clothes really express a part of us so it is important to dress carefully especially if a specific image is sought to be projected.

  21. Since I started to earn on my own and could buy any dress I want. I’ve been very particular on fit, style of the outfit and quality of the dress, I learned to appreciate that wearing a dress could help boost my confidence. I love dressing up too!
