When you get dressed in the morning, what are the main factors that influence the clothes you choose to wear?
Like most of us at the moment I work from home, so generally the main thing I think about when I decide what to wear is how comfortable the clothes are.
If you need to look professional though you might pick out clothes that look neat and polished and that make you feel confident and well put together.
And if you’re feeling a bit low you might pick out something in a bright colour that cheers you up.
I have to admit that I’m not a big follower of fashion, but I do think that the clothes we choose to wear can have a big impact on how we feel. They can also effect how other people see us, and we can use the clothes we wear to make a statement to the world.
One of my favourite trends over the years has been slogan T-shirts.
There are so, so many designs to choose from that you can always find a T-shirt with a slogan or image on it to suit your mood and let the world know how you’re feeling.
You can start by picking out the colour of a T-shirt to suit either your mood or what you’re doing that day.
Bright colours like yellow and red are great if you’re feeling cheerful and want to show that to the world. Or if you’re feeling a bit anxious and want something to help you feel a bit calmer you could go for a purple or green T-shirt.
The interesting thing with this is that studies have shown that the clothes we wear can change the way we feel, but as a result of us believing that they will.
So putting that red T-shirt on won’t magically make you feel happier, unless you believe that it will. And that belief tends to come from knowing that this particular top fits you well, and that you feel confident in it.
The other place you can start with choosing a T-shirt is the slogan or design on it.
There are so many designs to choose from when it comes to women’s T-shirts so there really is something for every personality and every mood.
I love T-shirts with simple slogans like ‘not today’ for days when you’re not in the mood for dealing with the world and want to make a bit of a joke about it. On the flip side of this I also love T-shirts with uplifting slogans and messages reminding people to be kind and keep positive.
These kinds of T-shirts can make us feel better when we put them on, as well as make other people smile when they see us wearing them, which isn’t bad for a humble T-shirt.
We can also express different sides of our personalities with the T-shirts we choose to wear.
You can use them to show your allegiance to a particular sports team, or to tell the world about your love of your favourite tv show or film.
If you have a more quirky personality you can find T-shirts that help you express that side of yourself with fun graphics and slogans.
No matter who you are, what mood you’re in or what you want to present to the world, you can find a T-shirt that will help you express yourself without having to say a word.
Do you have a favourite slogan T-shirt? What do you think it says about you when you wear it?
