okay so I've been thinking about this a lot lately. I'm 16 and a few years ago I was into the white bubly jacket/vest thing and uggs (for winter). and now I don't really wear a winter coat, I kind of just wear a hoodie.
a couple days ago, I bumped into one of my guy friends who I Haven't seen in four years and I was surprised at how grown up he looked. he was wearing an adult jacket. not a hodded sweatshirt that a lot of guys at my school wear. I can't really tell you the style because I don't remember exactly how it looked. But, I do remember that he looked very grown up.
this is what got me thinking; do I look less mature because I wear a hooded sweatshirt out? so, I went out and bought a more adult/grown up jacket.
what do you think? would a girl look less mature depending on her outerware? or do you think it just depends on the person who is looking at her?
well we always judge people on things like that when we first see them,but it doesn't always mean that that impression is right-i'm pretty mature (well at least 70% of the time I am) and here's what I wore the other day:huge yellow dr martens,dark green pants,and a black t-shirt with a dragon on the side lol
I definitely think it makes a difference. If you look like you care about how you look and your clothes reflect that then of course you're going to come off as more mature. But just because someone looks mature on the outside, doesn't mean they are on the inside.
Yes, how one dresses does tend to show a level of maturity and age. Do you remember how in history class everyone wore grey wigs to appear older? However, today one is expected to dress their age as well. There is only one time in your life that you can wear what you can wear now, so don't try to grow up too fast. Wear what you like now and worry about wearing the 'grown up' clothing when you get there. :)
Somewhat. However, I dress differently depending on how I am feeling that day. Some days I dress all grown up in sweaters and peacoats. Other days I will wear a tank top, hoodie and jeans. Some other days I wear lacy tops and boots. When I go out to the bars, I wear club clothes usually. It depends on how I feel that day and what I am doing.
For example, when I go to work I dress in business appropriate clothing, which makes me look more like an adult and probably more mature. When I'm out in public I dress in clothing that is trendy for young adults, so I might look as mature as a college student. When I'm at home I wear yoga pants and sweatshirts, which probably doesn't look very mature at all. However, I hold the same level of maturity no matter what my clothes look like.
Yes but that's only until the person in question starts talking. For example I'm 16 and in winter I'd typically wear high heeled knee high boots, a turtle neck, a well fitting flowy mini- skirt, tights, a fitted trench coat with a wool scarf and I don't wear very much eyeliner (the eye liner is a big deal if you look at most 16 year old girls they tend to wear too much black eyeliner) dressed like this I look 18-25 but if people over hear me talking about literature they assume I am older but if the hear me talking about my parents not letting me go to the movies they will assume I'm younger. But if you saw me in a floppy sweater, jeans and uggs I'll look 16. I think it's not really how mature a person is its more about the age the person looks.
