Symbolic Communication Via Our Fashion Choices

We all know, to some extent, that what we wear says something about us. Whether we do it consciously or not is another question we must ask ourselves.

This was the topic of conversation in one of my sociology courses this afternoon and it made me think about what my fashion likes and dislikes, and those I choose to expose out there in the world for all to see, say about me.

Personally, I don’t feel that I conform to one “style” because honestly it depends on the type of mood I’m in, who I will be interacting with throughout the day, and what activities I expect to engage in. In addition, my personal experiences have taken me all over the map and so one day I may feel like dressing downs while on another day I may have to dress for the appropriate professional event. Each look embodying different aspects of our culture in different ways.

This topic of discussion provided some food for thought and so I pass it on for you to munch on since, as a fashion appreciator, it made me think of the the unspoken things we are saying about ourselves by the things we choose to wear.

Enjoy the rest of your day while creating the version of yourself you’d like to share with others. What’s makes up your steez??
