I think it could be why I now write a blog on clothes, why I think clothes matter. Clothes help you fit in and stand out. Our first words of greeting to each other are often about clothes ("You look nice today!"), noticing what someone is wearing is a great icebreaker, and talking about clothing provides light relief in the midst of our hectic days.
