Women’s dress styles and the shopping malls they go to have a direct impact on the way they see themselves and the people around them, according to a new study.
The study, conducted by the University of Maryland and the University at Buffalo, found that women’s dress style has a significant impact on their perception of the people in their surroundings and their perception in other contexts.
“Our research shows that women who wear dresses are seen more differently than their female counterparts in a number of different ways,” said Rachel L. Lutz, a research professor in the department of psychology and human development at the University, in a press release.
“Dress is a powerful tool for self-expression, and for people to identify with their own self-image and their own sense of belonging.
It has an impact on how people see their own lives, and it also affects the way others perceive them.”
The study found that when women dress in a certain way, they are perceived as more caring, empathic, and friendly.
This perception is especially strong when it comes to being perceived as a woman.
“When women dress well, we are perceived positively and favorably by our peers,” Lutz said.
“When women wear dresses, it is seen as threatening and as a negative image.
We are seen as less caring and less empathic and friendly.”
Women are also more likely to feel more confident about their own personal appearance when they dress in an appropriate way, according the researchers.
The study found women who dress in “proportional” ways, in which the majority of their clothes are white or gray, are more likely than women who don’t wear clothing at all to feel positive about their appearance and to be perceived as confident.
Women also feel more comfortable wearing clothes that are not specifically intended for women.
The researchers found that while women’s clothing choices had a direct effect on how others viewed them, their clothing choice also had an effect on the perception of them by those around them.
For example, when women wear clothing that is primarily designed for men, such as jeans, t-shirts, and tank tops, it has a direct and negative effect on women’s perceived ability to be accepted by others.
The University at Bills study was published online March 24 in the journal Social Psychological and Personality Science.
