Put On Your Comfy Pants: How Clothes Protect Us & Connect Us

We wear clothes for ourselves, but also as a statement of who we are to the outside world. 

Are we casual or formal? Loose and relaxed. Or rigid and constructed? Through our clothes, the message we are telling complete strangers who are dressed like us: we are connected. Clothes can also give another signal: that we are alone and lonely. 

Clothes are a physical reflection of our internal thoughts and our internal longings.  They are a shield against external elements and a signal of what we want to say about who we are.

They tell the world, even to someone casually walking by you on the street, that you aren’t alone because your choice might have a chance of connecting to someone else. 

Put on your comfy pants and let’s explore how clothes protect us and connect us to each other.
