Judging how successful someone is by their fashion choices may seem surface level at first, but recent psychological studies show that when it comes to fashion preferences, there’s more than meets the eye. A recent Columbia study found that your clothing choices not only influence the way others view you and how you think about yourself, but they also impact your cognitive functions and the way you think. In short, your fashion choices might broadcast how well you are doing in your career and influence your future success.
So it’s time to take a look at your style. Are you already at the top of your game, with a perfectly organized closet full of bespoke outfits for every occasion? Are you currently struggling to turn things around, but following the credo of “dress for the job you want, not the one you have”? Or are you bumming around in your old college hoodie because what’s even the point? If it's the latter, maybe this quiz this will serve as a wake-up call to go search for some bargains and get some new threads. This quiz should help you take a moment to reflect on your fashion preferences and how things are going right now.
So can we tell how successful you are, based on your style? Time to find out.
