Take a look at this Essay example sent by a CPE student in France.
What do clothes say about ourselves?
(Exam tip: Always write a title)
saying goes; 'never judge a book
by its cover'. Outfits and looks can be deceiving and are certainly not always a mirror of our real personality. However, what people wear does matter and
definitely triggers emotional reactions.
(Exam tip: Always separate text in clear paragraphs).
As a rule of
thumb, formal dress is a must for any businessman, executive
and entrepreneur. This way of dressing projects an image of success, trustworthy and
professionalism. Whereas a sloppy and
casual apparel prompts a negative image. On the other hand, being too formally dressed can also create a strained atmosphere especially
in a professional environment, putting customers at distance if not in
There are special occasions when dress-codes should be especially paid attention to. Events such as weddings, graduations and funerals, are times in which people should pay special attention to what they wear.
And as for uniforms? Police officers, firefighters or doctors are constraint to wear uniforms
which do not necessarily tell a lot about their individual personalities, but rather the personality of the institution the uniform represents. Indeed, they can represent justice , law or authority and there is undoubtedly an impact on the use of them.
without saying that clothes have an important part to play at giving a first
impression and at telling a lot about a person’s life-story. However we can easily be misleaded by our first impressions on someone and make false
assumptions, so better to always be careful and dont jump into conclusions so eagerly.
