yes because you can sometimes tell hwo a person can act from it too. mostly it shows how a persons attitude can be, but sometiems people can be different when they dress. so dont let just clothes trick you.

I think to a certain extent it does. It definatly does towards a job interview. Ex: If you wear ripped jeans and a t-shirt to a nice business wanting a job, they're definatly not going to hire you because it shows that you're sloppy and not well prepared.

a person dresses on how they feel and also show their sence of style and personality. if a girl feels crappy then they are going to wear loose clothing to give them room to breath. granted they'll still dress to their own style to show their own personality, but you will still be able to know how they feel on the outside.

Side: yes

Of course it does! to be honest if i were to see a person wearing torn up clothes the first thing that would come to mind is that this person is probably poor and cant afford the same type or even new clothes to wear. But even though a person would dress like that it doesnt nesscerarily means that they are poor. its been brought to my attention that some people make a living to dress poorly and walk around and beg in money but they actually have a decent place to live. Now back to the topic at hand, yes a person's clothes can tell you about someone as a person but it can also be just pretend

yes. fashion revolved around everything. its a way of life. it always can explain what your thinking, if youre trying to impress anyone, if you care about what you look like, everything. fashion is a world of its own that is tied into a multi billion dollar industry so even if you think youre just throwing on an old shirt you dont care about. it was actually made out of someones idea and creativity to be worn.

Yes a persons clothes can tell you alot about the type of person they are. It can tell the kind of stuff they many be into, it can pretty much give u a small insite to who they are.

Side: No

Yes because the first thing people notice about you is your appearance, so if you represent yourself in a certain manner they make judgements based upon that. For example; if you go in for a job interview and your attire is unexceptable but you're very intelligent, most likely you wont get the job.

yes, a person's clothes can tell you alot about them. It shows thier style and may even show they personality. A person clothes represents thier character and who they are as a person

yes sometimes you CAN tell how a person is by the way they are dressed. If a person wears sweats to school or to work you might get the impression that they don't really care or don't want to be there. So, yes you can tell how a person is by what they are wearing. :)

Side: yes

I believe that a person clothes can tell you about there outside like if their cheap, dusty, don't care, and etc. But i mean sometimes you really dont know what is going on with that person on that day are time you know

Side: yes

I say yes because even though some people just wake up in the morning and throw sumthing on. A lot of people like to express themselves through the clothes that they wear. True some people want to just be popular and dress up as something they are not but most everyone dresses up in their own style.

Side: yes

I dont think clothes will tell you something about that person. plus, some people dress into something they are truly not. Any person can throw the "gothic" or "preppy" look on, and it really wouldnt tell you what kind of person they are. so thuglife. :D

Side: No

Clothes can't tell you everything about the person. Some people dress completely opposite of their personality. Granted, yes some people do express themselves by how they dress, but most people only dress a certain way because its popular, and they want to go with it.

Side: No

No clothes dosent tell you anything about a person because most people dress the way they do just to fit in. Anybody can dress into a different kind of look and be the total opposite of it. Soooo, no.

Side: No

I totally agree that clothes does not reflect person's personality as people wearing branded clothes can look foolish if they do stupid things and person wearing simple clothes can look smart by the way be behaves, carries himself. As you can buy clothes, material thing with money that doesn't mean you have great personality.

Side: No
