From a young age, you might have heard a saying ‘don’t judge a book by its cover’. And although this is
true in most cases, it’s not something accepted by everyone in the society. In today’s world, you can tell
a lot about people by the way they do certain things. The way a person talks, gestures, dresses and even
looks is often enough for others to create an impression about them.
Additionally, how people style themselves has been used in some cases to determine the kind of
environment they live in during the day. Certain companies and public workplaces create standards that
often reflect the values for which they stand for. These values sometimes include the involvement of a professional dress code to ensure uniformity and reduce what is considered indecency. So, it’s not surprising that many job seekers, in addition to polishing their resumes or cover letters, go on to polish their sense of style. They go through online shops and check out clothing blogs for tips to look good in the most inexpensive way.
‘Dress for the job you want’ is a sentence taken seriously by many people. This is because, for them, there seems to be a connection between people’s clothing choices and the way they experience certain events in life. The plan is always to dress smart, in order to pass the message that ‘I am capable of the position I am applying for’ and ‘You can count on me to reflect the image of your company’. This phenomenon affects another group similarly – students. For many college students, the dressing is an essential aspect of being ‘cool’ and declaring your individuality. Also, there are many conceptions about people who dress in certain style. For instance, some people believe that a suit makes a guy look suave, business-like and responsible. At the same time, people who dress in denim are seen as more approachable, easy-going individuals.
It is quite beneficial for students to learn how to dress well. Here are some reasons why:
1. Self-confidence boost
Looking good for appropriate events can help with an extra layer of self-confidence through the day. It has been noticed that students who left the house wearing good-looking clothes felt more confident about achieving their set goals, even if they were expecting new challenges. It was as if they had worn a ‘super suit’ out of the house that projected the ‘I don’t even need someone to write my paper for me – I will do it myself’ vibes. And a boost to your self-confidence is basically you helping yourself. You dress good, you look good – you feel good. This should probably be the most important reason not only for students but for anyone. And a boost to your self-confidence is basically you helping yourself.

2. Perception boost
‘The way you dress is the way you will be addressed’. I remember hearing this funny phrase from an older relative, and it sounded funny. But in recent times, several social experiments have actually proven that this sentence is valid. A constantly well-dressed college student is more likely to be chosen to represent the school for conferences than a casually dressed one. Teachers tend to perceive learners who are meticulous about their student style as ‘geared for success in their future careers’ and indirectly relate to them. And since a good number of people often rely on first impressions to create an opinion about someone, being well-clothed could be a lifesaver in a first-time lecture. Every learner wants to be taken seriously about their goals relating to education and studies. Looking sharp could help to increase that probability.
3. An image of their upbringing
In some societies, the clothes a learner puts on are seen as a reflection of how well they were brought up. This is especially true for cases where certain institutions have clear boundaries prohibiting clothes that are seen as ‘provocative’ or ‘unruly’. This means that wearing these clothes not only projects disobedience to the rules, but also paints an impression that the particular student exhibits the same traits at home freely. Or that they might not have been corrected strictly enough by their parents. In simple terms, the person isn’t well-trained – not the type of impression anyone would want to make. In general, students tend to blend easily during interactions with seniors and instructor, knowing that they look presentable enough for any occurrence during the day.
