Diagnosis via Fashion

I just heard of the most interesting book and I had to share – You Are What You Wear: What Your Clothes Reveal About You by psychologist Dr. Jennifer Baumgartner.


How fascinating that a psychologist studied individuals and their issues through their fashion choices! The author says in an interview with WWD, “The choices you make about shopping, storing and organizing your clothing are indicators of what’s going on internally at the time in your life. I look at three parts of one’s dress behavior: One is how people shop. The second is how they assemble clothes and outfits, how they dress. And the third is the actual organization and storage of the closet.”

My closet is organized by color – I wonder what that says about me…type A perhaps?!

Buy the book here and read an interview with the author here.
