In other words, the clothes that we wear are the basis by which other people around us make their perception about the kind of person we are. Therefore, it is imperative that we dress in manner that is deemed appropriate for the particular occasion. This is especially true while dressing up in a formal environment and/or in the corporate world. It is imperative that you ensure that your clothes are sending the right message and people are making their initial impressions and perceptions about you, in a way that you would like them to.
