Dressing | Aspect of Personality Development

We agree to the freedom of a person to wear the dress of his choice. Then at the same time, we must agree to the freedom of the onlooker to form his impression about that person. The decorum regarding the dress is changing with the generations. However, to say that the dress shall be suitable for the occasion shall be a statement acceptable to all. It would be out of place to wear beach wear in a classroom or at the marriage reception; where the formal dress would be more suitable.

So the choice of your dress for a particular occasion adds to your personality. When you go for inspection of the work on site your dress shall not be with loose cloth to get entangled with the tips of bars and nails. You shall preferably wear shoes and not chappals to protect your feet from possible injuries. You may find high heel sandals and pleat skirts are unsuitable for site inspection of the work in progress.

The dress need not be expensive, but it shall be well washed and ironed. Colour combination and consideration of matching colours in dress is not applicable only for ladies’ dress. These days, it is equally applicable to the gentlemen’s dress too. As an architect, you may find many occasions to stay in a hotel for attending meetings and conferences. It is considered as ill manners to come out of your room in nightdress in pajamas into the public areas of the hotel such as lounge, dining area etc. The consideration of a well dressed person does not end up with the clothes. If you like to keep beard, keep it always well trimmed. If you like to shave, then shave clean every morning. It shall be a habit with you to keep clean and well-trimmed finger nails of both hands and feet. It is hygienic. Besides dirty nails create a feeling of aversion for you, when you use your fingers to explain the plans.

We will be discussing the rest of the aspects in detail in our succeeding articles…
