Are looks important?
Most definitely. Your looks reveal the characteristics of your grooming habits. However, it does not reveal your heart. Keep in mind your appearance will attract certain people to you. Some people will judge you by the way you look. You may not have the most expensive or latest fashion gear and, that is okay. What you do have in your closet make sure when you flaunt it that it is clean, ironed, and makes you look good.
Remember, looks matter in business. You cannot walk into an interview and not look your best. That means, make sure your hair is groomed and your clothes are presentable. When you open your mouth let them know you are competent and efficient.

Do my clothes reveal the real me?
Depending on your situation. Some people have expensive clothes with no retirement fund, no savings account, and no home to call their own. But when you see them they look sugar sharp!! Have you ever had a conversation with one of those? So does that reveal the real person?
Or, some people may not have expensive clothes but, they fall into the category of attending school, working, goal oriented, and are striving for something better. Or, not! Have you ever had a conversation with one of those? So does that reveal the real person?
Clothes reveal only your grooming habits & for some taste in fashion. Remember the person makes the clothes the clothes don’t make the person! Certain gear does make people interested in getting to know you but that won’t keep them around.
When it comes to your clothes keep it clean. You can hand wash them, use a washer machine & dryer, or hang dry. No excuses!
