Words Need Not Be Spoken

When you think about Washington D.C, fashion isn't the first thing that comes to mind.  DC has the reputation of a conservative culture. A Vanity Fair article says "Generally speaking, America's political class dresses to underwhelm". The article then poses the question "How is it that some of the most powerful people in the world don't understand the importance of image?"  This question got us thinking.

Dressing smart is important for your confidence and sense of self-empowerment. But your style does more than just send messages to your mind or to others. New research shows it actually impacts how you think. One study found that professional dress, increases abstract thinking and gives people a broader perspective.  

 Clothing is a type of non-verbal communication. Through our clothing choices of dresses, skirts, pants, suits, t-shirts or jeans, we send out a unique message about how we want to be perceived each day. And the wonderful thing is, it's in our hands to decide what message we want to communicate.  There are a lot of choices available, what are you wearing today?
