Did you know on average, a person makes 35,000 decisions per day? And you may not realize deciding what to wear is one of the most important daily decisions you make that helps you to express your self-identity.
Through our clothing, we are able to communicate a part of our personality non-verbally. Whether that be expressing your sensitive side by wearing a floral print or indicating you’re an extravert by wearing an eye-catching statement piece.
Here at The Fanss, we encourage our customers to continue expressing themselves through their personal choices, including their sense of fashion. Getting older does not mean you stop caring about how you present yourself. The smell of a favorite scent or aftershave, the feeling of the fabric, the sparkle of jewelry, or the completion of an accessory all hugely impact individualism and feeling like ‘you.’
Clothing is not only a great way to express yourself, but researchers suggest the types of clothing we wear can affect our behaviors as well as our confidence. By wearing clothes we love, we feel confident in ourselves, and this is particularly important to the well-being of the elderly.
The positive impact that fashion has on the elderly doesn’t stop there! Items in our wardrobes can hold many memories, whether it’s a vintage piece that transports the owner to an era from their youth or an item that reminds them of a particular time in their life. Fashion is a great way to get the elderly to reminisce, which positively impacts their well-being.
