Are you very interesed in what you wear, clothes i mean...is important in society to have expensive clothes, i mean clothes show us what kind of person somebody is, or a person can make clothes to look good when he wear this clothes? How much important are clothes in our life?Is important to be all time very good dressed? Or important is just human no matter what clothes he wear?

Yes, If you want that you have some respect in your society you must wear clothes matching your personality. You must be careful about what to wear and what not. Your clothes definitely reflects your personality. Well dressed people are preferred everywhere.

Hi, you are right, but is not much important what a person have inside, not outside?

@ icemile I am talking about personality. There is a difference in personality and mentality. What you look from outside is your personality and what you are from inside is your mentality or nature or way of thinking in more simple words. So if you want to gain a social reputation you must be well dressed. Well dressed doesn't means you must wear expensive, rather it means you must wear good looking clothes. Clothes that suits you the most.

You will gain a good reputation for short time with expensive clothes, later peoples will apreciate you after your personality, mentality , and what you are as person and human not because of clothes...but you are right, i hate people who apreciate others just because have expensive clothes...don t forgot that great personality of this world, never apreciate expensive clothes..

In my opinion, when person doesn't care really how expensive his clothes are, but feels comfortable and confident, he makes his clothes work for him. I mean, if I see person in some casual clothes, but at the same time looking so all-sufficient and complete, I'm always amazed about that. This is one side of personality that I don't have. On the contrary, if in some society only expensiveness of clothes matters, then such a society isn't worth much of my attention. People are more than just appearance and clothes. I'm always trying to keep that in my mind. Good luck!

I totally agree with You. I don't really look at the price of the clothes, if it fits me in all senses. On the other hand, some clothes make me feel uncomfortable, I feel as they speak for me, and people around don't see me, just those jeans of cardigan. In this case I don't buy it, no matter how fashionable and expensive these clothes are.

In today's world, I think most people tend to judge people by what they wear. However, it can sometimes be quite a surprise when you actually start talking to someone, because what they wear does not always reflect their intellect or personality. I think most people do tend to realise that the first impressions they make are important, and that what they wear can affect peoples perceptions of them. But unfortunately, there are some people who are misjudged by what they wear. The same type of thing happens with many other animals, birds judge each other based on their plummage, so it is just part of nature I suppose. I think in some cases people can make other first impressions on people by the way they act. Posture is also important, because it can reveal a lot about you. Generally people who dress well are more confident because they know they have a good appearance. Being confident with who you are is probably the most important thing, and clothes can be a way of expressing this confidence.

First impressions count. Smart clothing that helps us to take care of our life. You are what you wear. I don't think clothes actually make you the person you are, but they do affect the type of person other people think you are. I personally could care less what others think of me based on the clother on my back. Having said that, I feel better about myself when I take the time to dress up and put some effort into what I wear. I like the feeling of being crisp, clean and polished. I don't think the clothes make the person, but I do think the clothes can make the person feel great about herself.

Clothes are worn by a person's choice and he will see to it how much comfortable he feels in it.Some people just wear ordinary clothes but know to carry themselves in such a way that they are not only respected but also liked by all. Whereas there is another type who always wears expensive clothes but as he cannot carry himself in the elegant way his expensive clothes have no meaning. So the person's personality is made up of both, his personality and also the clothes he wears. A well dressed person is more sought for than a poorly dressed person. It is not the cost or the type of dress he wears but the neat appearance is liked by all. Happy mylotting.

It's the person that makes the clothes.a girl might be wearing the most expensive dress,but if she is uncomfortable with it,the dress also looks ugly.if a girl wearing a dress from a cheap store carries it with confidence and class,then the dress looks polished and expensive.it beats the worried girl in expensive clothes all the time.when I see someone in clothes,I don't look at the brand.I look at how s/he carries it.

sometimes, even if you say you should wear clothes that fits your personality, doesn't really reflects it..Although I certainly believe that you are respected through it..It is where we are judge most by people around us..Even if we dressed not that good as long as our personality is well cared, then it will always be seen and noticed by people regardless of what we are wearing..

For me the man makes his name and the man makes his clothes. I prefer to make my clothes rather then buying them. Since I have grown up surrounded by people of not such a high social rate I don't mind what the person next to me is wearing or looks like. Since I am a free runner I don't buy my clothes but I make them myself. Just because they have to be confortable for climbing buildings and running away from someone. They have gotten pretty dirty over time but I don't mind.

I have to admit I like shopping for clothes, shoes, etc. I always plan what to wear every day. I think it is nice if a person is well-dressed everyday. It makes him/her look cleaner and neater. But I don't think being well-dressed means having expensive clothes. That is why I believe that the person makes the clothes look good and not the other way around. I know several people who wears expensive clothes and carry expensive bags but don't look well-dressed or sophisticated. I also have several friends who are not that rich and usually wear $10 clothes yet look elegant all the time. Clothes really just depend on the person wearing it.

Clothes are not that important, I think. Sometimes I hate people who're wearing Fake Brand. They thought they were cool to wear that kind of clothes, but I felt they didn't have good taste.

when i kinda think its a balance really. Your clothes pretty much represent what you want to be. I cant really explain. What im trying to say is, its really just your personality and your own opinion as to whether your belongings make you, or you make the clothes. Well techically people do make the clothes, and metaphorically clothes express the person so :)

I don't think that the clothes makes the person. That's just like money don't make the man, the man makes the money. I like to have nice clothes and all don't get me wrong, but I am not gonna go and spend $100 on a pair of jeans.

i think clothes accentuate the person and the person's personality. i am pretty creative and i tend to dress a little well different than everyone else but still have to look good because i work in a conservative office. i usually put pieces together that normally may not go together. you only have a few minutes to make an impression, i make sure its a good one.
