Clinical psychologist Dr Jennifer Baumgartner claims that our wardrobe decisions tell others about the secret desires that we are trying to hide!

Too much cleavage suggests you are power hungry and want control while over-the-top jewelry implies you are insecure and may have financial difficulties. Women who button up their clothes are actually telling their boss that ‘femininity means weakness, not power’, while high heels can make women appear less intelligent but also inspire confidence by making the wearer as tall as their male colleagues. A young girl choosing a short skirt could be an attention seeker, while an older woman doing the same is having difficulty accepting that she is a grown-up.

Dr Baumgartner said: ‘All of our behaviors, from the food we eat to the men we date, are motivated by internal factors. Why is it any different with the clothes we buy and the way we buy them? All you need to do is track your shopping habits, or note the styles in your wardrobe to identify the patterns.

Do you agree with the findings?  What do you think your message is, with your wardrobe?
