Why You Need To Dress Smart
I have always believed that fashion was not only to make women 
more beautiful, but also to reassure them, give them confidence. 
-Yves Saint Laurent

Do you know why you need to dress smart?

There is a psychology behind dressing smart. Have you noticed that people treat you differently if you are well dressed? They seem to be more interested to what you have to say and caters to your need when you dress smart.

Why You Need To Dress Smart


When you go out of the house, you don't need to overdress. You just need to dress sharply or be modest. Why? You need to dress smart to earn the respect of the people around you. Especially so for women. You may want to wear a dress for fun, but some men boys will sadly judge you for how you present yourself.

It's hard not to respect someone who dresses smartly. In the same way, it's hard to respect someone who looks like they don't even make the effort of taking care of themselves.


Lady Duff-Gordon said it best, "Put even the plainest woman into a beautiful dress and unconsciously she will try to live up to it."

Dressing smart helps a lot especially during an interview. It makes you think more of yourself when you dress well. Your physical appearance may be a reflection of your inner world, but it also works the other way around. How you change your look affects how you feel inside.


Your wardrobe says a lot about you. "Style is a way to say who you are without having to speak." That's what stylist to the stars Rachel Zoe has to say. But it's not just about being able to afford the expensive brands. Nobody really cares about the price tag of your dress except maybe for the materialistic ones. What's important is how you present yourself. How you're able to pull off a style without spending too much. Or how creative you are with how little you have.
