Researchers have discovered associations between clothes, brain activity and productivity show that dressing professionally for work can improve your work performance. Research shows that what we wear sends a symbolic message to our brain. The type of clothing we wear affects how we see ourselves, thereby affecting how we feel. This research has been done by Dr. Adam Galinsky, co-author of the pre-pandemic research and has been discussed in Association for Psychological Science. Researchers performed a study measuring the work performance of two groups of people. One group wore lab coats and the other group wore street clothes. The group wearing lab coats performed better at work. The conclusion is when we dress professionally for work, we perform better at work. You can read more details about this study in the paper called, “Enclothed Cognition”.
