How To Recognize A Happy Woman? Just Look At Her Clothes!

April 3, 2019 13:28

Most people don’t attach much importance to their choice of everyday clothes. We habitually wake up in the morning, open the wardrobe, put on the something, then go to work. But scientists say that our preference in clothes has a lot to do with our mood. On a similar note, one study showed that jeans are what most people wear when they are depressed. Want to know more?

How do happy people dress?

Professor Karen Pine of the University of Hertfordshire conducted a study based on the responses of 100 women. It turns out that our mood reflects in how we look.

The study revealed that more than half of the surveyed women wore jeans when they felt depressed. Only a third wore jeans when they felt happy.

In a bad mood, women tend to opt for something baggy. 57% of ladies answered that they would put it on when they feel blue, while only 2% would wear shapeless clothes when they are happy.

Also, the women said that they would wear their favorite dress and shoes more often when feeling happy.

Happy people prefer to wear clothes that fit well, emphasize the merits of their figure, and look neat. This is what jeans lack.

Here is what the professor says:

Jeans can signal that the wearer hasn't bothered with their appearance. People who are depressed often lose interest in how they look and don't wish to stand out.

Each person is unique

In most cases, if we're in a great mood, we want to look good. But sometimes, fancy clothes are just not among a person’s priorities. Take Mark Zuckerberg for instance. The billionaire wears the same clothes every day, but at the same time, he looks very happy with his family.

On the other hand, Donald Trump and his wife pay a great deal of attention to clothes, and yet, they don’t look very happy. The US President even once said that dressing well is a sign of respect for oneself and for others.

The conclusion: everyone’s unique and tastes differ. But the next time you wear jeans, think about how you feel. Do you wear them because you feel blue and don’t want to look fancy? Or maybe you are so happy that even an old pair of jeans can’t hide it?
