Women do not dress to impress men

Published

on

Men have never been a factor when it comes to how a woman dresses. Someone put it well, ‘if women wanted to impress men, they would walk around naked’. This is because a woman’s outfit is influenced by so many factors other than what has been previously thought of. For instance:

The mood

The mood of a woman has the number one influence on her outfit choices. For instance, when she is tired and bored she is likely to dress down to show the little effort that went into the outfit. When she is happy and the sun is shining bright in her world you will definitely notice the effort and the fun in her step. Mood goes hand in hand with personality since not every woman dresses colorfully when they are happy nor dull when in a sour mood.

Occasion

Occasion also determines the type of outfit a woman pulls out of her closet. Women tend to respect what an occasion requires of them. That is why they become the center of attraction because they aim to do their best to be in compliance with the host’s instructions. Take the MET GALA for example.

Upbringing/culture

Women can be influenced by their upbringing/ culture when it comes to dressing. Women that come from reserved homes are probably to hold on to the values instilled in them at a tender age. Women who were brought up in open-minded homes are likely to incorporate other ideas that will be appealing to them as influenced by the factors mentioned earlier. The same women who were raised in reserved homes may step out of their comfort zone to try something different. It is never a dull day when it comes to women.

Menstruation cycle

This is where the hormones come to play. These are usually released at different times on the menstrual cycle, hence bringing about different bodily changes. For instance, when estrogen levels are high in the body, it causes bloating. In this case, a woman may be self-conscious thus staying away from slim fighting garments. The minute the levels stabilize you will see a side of that woman that you never thought would resurface.

The weather

From heavy outfits to light ones, women consider the weather while choosing their outfits. It is under very few circumstances where they find themselves dressed only for the weather to change on them. In which case, they remedy it instantly.

Trends

Pop culture has a lot of influence on the way people dress especially women. In the effort to align with fresh global ideas, women are most likely to learn and dress accordingly.

Having said that, it is about time we should rest the notion that women dress to impress men.
