First impressions are influenced more by nonverbal cues than they are by anything you have to say. Studies suggest that nonverbal cues can have more than four times the impact on another person’s first impression than your language. This might sound like a lot, but it makes a lot of sense. So, how might your dress attire play a part in influencing your body language? Here are some examples of different clothes and the way they change impressions.
- A Suit Wearing a suit is a power play in every situation. Whether you are wearing it to work or to a semi-formal party to turn heads, you are wearing a suit to project power. By doing so, any posture you take will indicate more power than it otherwise could.
- Accessories Sunglasses indoors impresses one of two things. Either you had a long night and it’s showing in your eyes, or you are trying to hide your eyes. Either way, it doesn’t garner respect. Supreme 5 panel hats are another thing that’s great outdoors, but inside professional establishments, they can make you look disrespectful. If you carry your Supreme skateboard around, you will be immediately more approachable to some and less to others.
- Gym Clothes Wearing gym clothes in a more formal setting will get unwanted looks from disapproving eyes. Your nonverbal cue is that you don’t care about wherever you are.
- Bathing Suits Bathing suits are more revealing. While it’s cool to wear them on the beach or in a Los Angeles Supreme shop around like-minded people, it’s quite another thing to walk around the city so scantily clad.
- Street Wear Graphic tees for men and women have their place, but when older adults see young hooligans wearing ‘offensive’ or ‘crude’ shirts in public, you will surely find a judging glare.
Next time you visit a Los Angeles Supreme shop, keep these body language modifiers into consideration. You certainly want to make a good first impression wherever you go, and knowing what a big role clothing plays should give you the leg up you need.
