Dress to (Not) Impress

Power ties, expensive purses–we have many ways to dress to impress.  In doing so we are making an effort at a certain kind of coercion.  We are demanding that others look at us, that people see us in a certain way.  This of course can take many forms.  For some, dressing like someone straight from Goodwill has the same desire and effect.  Instead, dress in a way that doesn’t draw attention of any kind.  Wear clothes that are plain, but not noticeably so.  See if you can interact with people in a non-coercive way of which dressing plainly is only the beginning.
