Each and every day, people throughout the world make decisions about how to clothe themselves. Even those who wear nothing (or next to nothing) are still making choices about how they will appear to others. And the phrase "clothes make the man (or woman)" didn't spring from nowhere, of course.
In many ways, how we present ourselves reveals much more than we might think about our cultures, our generations, our individual selves, and more. Beyond the simple act of wearing clothing, how individuals cleanse themselves, choose adornments, or modify their body also all tell a visual story.
So what does that "visible self" tell the world? Are you thinking about getting a tattoo and wonder what others might think of it? Are you puzzled or disgusted because a family member has one? Why are television shows such as Project Runway, The Swan, Dancing with the Stars, and What Not to Wear popular? Does what you wear make a difference in how you feel or how you are perceived by others?
