Do Clothes Reflect Personality?

In most cases, what an individual wears reflects various personality elements. What an individual wears can give information about his type of employment, spending habits, emotions and ambitions, notes clinical psychologist Jennifer Baumgartner in Forbes.

Dr. Baumgartner's book, "You Are What You Wear: What Your Clothes Reveal About You," details how shopping behaviors come from experience, emotions and culture, which means clothes reflect an individual's personality. The same book concludes that clothing can project a good or bad image about an individual. Moreover, clothes can ultimately help individuals place themselves where they think they would like to be at a certain point in their lives.
