Everyone cannot hope to be an Einstein, in whom the value of one’s brain is so great that what one wears is hardly noticed. Nor can everyone be a Gandhiji, who wore only a short dhoti or loincloth for the sake of his principles.
A person is judged by his appearance. It is the outward sign of his attitude, temperament and personality. Hence, it is necessary to dress well. A man working in a bank, a lady working as secretary, a candidate going for an interview – all need to present themselves in such a way that they will appear smart and refined.
Now this doesn’t mean that one has to be showy. The fact is that one has to dress well, and not gaudily, flaunting one’s wealth in the other’s face. As Shakespeare has aptly put it: ‘Costly thy apparel as thy purse can buy.’ One need not to be rich to dress decently, if one wears clean clothes, neatly and tidily, and clothes that are sober and refined in appearance-that is enough. Dressing up well does not imply wearing satin gowns, or designer shirts, or jeans that have been widely advertised on TV.
Dressing up actually reflects one’s attitude to life. The choice of colours of one’s clothes and the style of dressing reflect the personality of the wearer.
In our day-to-day dressing we do not have to emulate fashion models. What does a man usually wear when goes to work? Just a shirt and a pair of pants, and possibly a tie. A girl would wear a frock or a salwaar kameez or a sari.There is not much variety in the type of clothes we wear, or are expected to wear. Variety comes from the colours we choose and the style of dressing.
In the final count what really matters is your personality, your tastes, and refinement and the way you carry yourself.
