Dressing Sense: How To Dress Wisely For Personality Development

What we often say when meeting someone for the first time reveals a lot about who we are.
It’s important to present yourself professionally when you meet someone since “the first impression is your final impression.”
The way someone is dressed is the first thing we notice about them since it gives us a sense of who they are; even when presenting ourselves, our body language takes a backseat.
The crucial point is that your sense of style should reflect your personality because it has a significant impact on how your personality develops, even though that doesn’t imply you have to be fashionable.

A person’s sense of style, body language, and personality are all reflected in how they dress.
And the truth is that how we dress enhances both our physical and psychological attractiveness since beauty isn’t only about height, weight, or skin tone; it’s also about how you portray yourself to others.

The psychology behind dressing well

  • Being well-groomed enhances our personality and fosters relationships with like-minded others.
  • You may increase your self-confidence by dressing nicely, and people will notice this when they see you.
  • Always try to dress in something upscale and formal that makes you feel good about yourself.
  • It is a proven truth that dressing professionally improves your ability to concentrate, focus, and motivate yourself, whereas wearing casual attire can make you feel fatigued and distracted.

According to studies, dressing formally has an impact on our life, helps us feel more powerful, and encourages positive thinking.

How dressing sense plays a major role in an interview?
The way you present yourself communicates a lot about your status, personality, and identity. When someone sees an image of themselves, it is when they form their first impression.
When attending interviews, some people make the mistake of dressing too garishly or garishly, which creates a negative image. It is best to dress formally at all times. For men, it can be a suit jacket, tie, and shoes with rolled-down sleeves.
For ladies, the suitable attire is a dress, pants, or a saree blouse.
For women, it can be a dress, a pair of slacks, or a saree with a blouse, depending on what is appropriate. To avoid being overlooked, try to wear a few accessories.

Your personality will shine more when you are dressed more professionally, and choosing unprofessional attire will raise your chances of being rejected during the job interview.

One should dress as though they are already renowned or successful, as though they had the ideal dream job and generous pay because how one presents themselves will determine how others will see them. Being presentable throughout the interview makes the interviewee feel good about you.

Reasons you should dress well every day
Your personality can be found in the clothes you choose to wear on a daily basis whether you leave the house for work, school, an interview, or shopping.
People typically focus on how well-dressed you are and what your clothing says about your personality and what trends or fashion you should wear before they pay any attention to anything else about you.

  • A good impression of yourself positive thinking
  • Builds up confidence
  • Go with trend
  • It makes me feel productive to work
  • You look beautiful

Question and Answer Section!
How do the fashion choices of others affect us?

The same applies to others; when we see someone wearing something nice or appealing, we want to perceive that and harbor fantasies of dressing like them. When a new trend or style enters the market, we usually tend to mimic it or follow it. However, we must be careful to avoid letting others’ opinions shape us to the point where we lose sight of who we are as people.

My fashion taste differs from that of my friends and coworkers. Does this imply that my sense of style is poor?

Others will notice your sense of style and how you are seen by them. Being dressed differently from your friends or coworkers shouldn’t change who you are because you might have something that they don’t!

Your personality and confidence are boosted when you look well. And the important thing is to make an effort to be original and stylish in your own way.

How can I dress well while still being modest and simple?
Developing a “basic acceptable look” is the art of wearing it in a way that appeals to and affects others. Other times, dressing well only makes you appear adaptable and elegant. The most important element is high-quality clothing, which you can combine with straightforward accessories and a pattern in calming or vibrant hues to create a sophisticated look.

The only way to get attention is to look good?
It’s true that looking well enhances your personality, but this is not the sole standard by which you should be evaluated.
Some people dress simply, but it doesn’t mean they lack sophistication or riches; rather, it only reflects their preferences or level of comfort.

Everyone understands how important appearance and clothes are to every one of us.
Dressing up or dressing up doesn’t necessarily mean doing fashion things; rather, it refers to how it develops your individuality, character, and confidence in yourself and in what you wear.

People typically present themselves well in order to attract attention based on how they appear and to demonstrate their status, symbol, and class in society through their personality and sense of style. Because most of the time we are all focused on ourselves, how you are dressed matters more than what we imagined other people were thinking about you.
Every time we put on something, clothing creates a favorable association that we might use to overcome that challenge.

How to style khaki pants for special occasions

Khaki pants for men in Nairobi Kenya are a dime a dozen. Everywhere you turn you will find a khaki trousers shop in Nairobi. So you probably have a wardrobe full of khaki pants. You wear them over the weekends. And on the more relaxed days.

But let’s say you have a very important function coming up. One in which you’ll absolutely have to make a big impression. Awesome. Unfortunately, all you have in your wardrobe are khaki pants. Not so awesome. What do you do to ensure you still look like a boss on this special occasion? Watch the video below.

He breaks it down very simply. Styling khaki pants for special occasions is easy. It’s all about the power and uniqueness of your statement jacket. And if you’re not a jacket man, then it’s about the beauty of your shirt. The more unique it is, the better it will look. Just make sure not to make the entire look too casual. I’ve always been a fan of the look of an un-tucked designer shirt that carefully matches informal pants. Popular on a lot of Kenyan politicians. Particularly on president Uhuru Kenyatta.

I’m a strong believer in one dressing up for themselves and not for others. So if khaki trousers are your thing, then you should absolutely rock them to your special occasion. The comfort you feel while in them will shine through for everyone to see. I’ve also always been a very strong believer n the following mantra. Dress for yourself. Not for anyone else.

That’s not to say you should ignore social protocol and dress as you please. Of course not. Dressing lazily is not a sign of independence. Or growth. It’s just bad manners. But dressing confidently based on your own individual style? Well, that’s that is the first step to great inner strength.

How to dress to attract women

“I don’t dress up for women, so why in the hell would I need to learn how to dress to attract women?” is what some of you are probably thinking. You like to dress casually. Jeans and sneakers. Even on dates with women you want to attract. You’re getting a lot of slack on your dress code. And you’re wondering why. Here’s why?

If you’re looking to attract high-quality women into your life, then a phenomenal sense of style is definitely the first major step. And contrary to what you may believe, Kenyan women have very high standards. Higher than most out there.

When she first lays her eyes on you, all she has to guide her decision making is your sense of style. That split second first impression will determine her level of attraction for you. And nothing screams “a quality man ahead!” more than a well thought out fashion sense.

So how do you ensure you dress to attract women? It’s easy. Ensure you have a few basics right.

Color scheme

Armed yourself a basic knowledge of neutral colors, your skin tone, and how these two aspects can be paired with stronger colors to make it all pop. There are 4 neutral colors.

  • Grey
  • Black
  • White
  • Tan

These colors can be worn with any other colors dependent on your skin tone. Essentially their neutral nature allows them to match perfectly with other bold colors. So for example. grey goes very well with red. It also goes well with blue. What you match it with will depend on your skin tone.

As a rule of thumb, go for some contrast with your dress code. The more light-skinned you are, the darker the shade of clothing. And vice versa.

That one statement piece

Every gentleman should always have that one luxurious statement piece. It could be an Italian fabric dinner jacket. Or a sweet pair of brogues. Maybe even be a high-end Tom Ford fragrance. It doesn’t matter.

All that matters is that it’s a unique standout piece that is not common in any way.

The 3 major advantages of a statement piece are:

  • They can be great conversation starters at functions, social events, and dates.
  • They tend to leave a powerful lasting impression on the women in question. You’ll linger in their thoughts long after the two of you have parted.
  • Because they are so powerful at creating attraction in women, they tend to bring back old flames. They do so by turning you into an entirely new you. As highlighted below.


There you have it. A brief guide on how to dress to attract Kenyan women.

How to look phenomenal as a wedding guest


Name: Maverick Kagesha

Age: 28

Profession: Farmer who does modeling as a side gig.

What he told us about his style.

“I’m not trying to be arrogant or anything, but I feel like God has blessed me in the looks department. Well, at least that’s what some ladies say. So much so, that I’ve never really felt the need to put too much effort into the style department. That being said, I have noticed that heads do turn a whole lot more when I dress up as opposed to when I don’t. I suppose there is no shortcut to good things in this life.”

Before – The guy confused as to whether this is a formal or casual event.

After – The smooth gentleman who has it all.


Don’t Settle. You are worth so much more.

Believe it or not, a lot of Kenyan men actually attend weddings they have been invited to as the man on the left when they could just as easily attend as the man on the right. Mind-boggling, I know. By putting him in this brilliant King Sidney statement jacket and co-ordinating the rest of his look around it, we helped him understand that making a huge impression is a bit like being pregnant, there is no halfway about it. When you strut into that wedding reception, either you move them to their core, or you don’t.

Why Dressing for Success Leads to Success

Dress better, work better?
A number of recent studies suggest that dressing up for work in a suit or blazer could do wonders for an employee’s productivity, whether going into a negotiation, making a sales call or even participating in a videoconference with business associates.
Using a number of measures, including simulated business meetings at which subjects wore formal and more casual clothing, the studies offer indications that wearing nicer clothes may raise one’s confidence level, affect how others perceive the wearer, and in some cases even boost the level of one’s abstract thinking, the type in which leaders and executives engage.
Michael W. Kraus, an assistant professor of organizational behavior at the Yale School of Management, co-wrote a study for the Journal of Experimental Psychology in 2014 which showed that clothes with high social status can increase dominance and job performance in “high-stakes” competitive tasks.
The study put 128 men ages 18 to 32 with diverse backgrounds and income levels through role-playing exercises—mock negotiations over the sale of a hypothetical factory—to see whether wearing specific kinds of clothing had an effect on the outcomes. The “buyer” in each case came from one of three groups. One group wore business suits and dress shoes. One group wore sweatpants, white T-shirts and plastic sandals. A third group, referred to as “neutrals,” kept wearing the clothing they arrived in. A neutral played the role of “seller” in each negotiation, but no seller also played a role as a buyer.

Suit up
The negotiators were each given a fair-market value for the hypothetical factory, along with other information that would influence their decisions about opening bids and asking prices. In the end, the suits proved much less willing to concede ground during the negotiations, moving off their initial offer by an average of only $830,000, compared with $2.81 million for those in sweatpants and $1.58 million for the neutrals.
What these results show, Prof. Kraus says, is that in competitive, winner-take-all situations, wearing more formal attire can send others a signal “about you being successful and real confident in whatever you’re doing.” Those more casually dressed, on the other side of the table, tend to back down more easily, he says. The ones in formal attire become aware of the respect they are receiving and become more forceful as well, he says.
Other research suggests that the effects of wearing nice clothes can be as much internal as external.
In a study published last year in the journal Social Psychological and Personality Science, results suggested that people engage in higher levels of abstract thinking when they dress up, compared with when they dress casually. When some 361 participants were asked to complete tasks, the ones dressed more formally engaged in the kinds of abstract thinking that someone in a position of power, like a senior executive, would deploy. After being tested in both formal and casual dress, another 88 subjects were quicker to see the big picture when they dressed more formally. The casual dressers tended to sweat the small stuff.
