Do clothes really affect your mood?

I love a cool pair of sneakers, but regardless of what pair I'm wearing, I can still be angry or sad. People say that their outfits reflect their mood for the day, I wonder how many people actually agree with this.

  • Oh yeah, 100%. If I don't get out of my PJs first thing in the morning I'll be to depressed by lunch time to do anything! Clothes definitly affect my mood. Frumpy clothes make me feel frumpy and depressed... Pretty clothes make me feel pretty and powerful... Same with makeup. If I don't have lipstick on I feel less powerful than I do with it... It's like it's a clue to my brain that I am ready to face the world.

  • Colors affect mine. Yellow and purple put me in a funk it seems
    If the outfit pinches or pokes,my day is ruined

  • I think so. I always feel more energetic and more positive and happy if I am dressed in attractive,clean and pressed clothing. Even in jeans and a sweater or cute top, if they look nice,I feel good. If I wear sweats around the house ,I feel yukky and Blah.LOL.

  • I think it does. I'm a sandel girl with every thing even when its cold. I dont really dress up because i have no need to lol.. i'm a pair a jeans and tshirt girl and yes what we wear is our mood, how about when your on your period do you feel like dressing nice or comforbel. I think it shows who you are what your interested in as a person with how you put your self together. Its no different then if you do your hair nice or put on make up.

  • Of course they do, if I'm dressed up I feel more mature and important, If I'm wearing my jeans I feel comfortable and young.
