I'm going to have to say no. While sometimes a person's appearance can affect how they feel about themselves, a lot of the time people can feel things about themselves that simply aren't true when compared to their actual self through someone else's eyes.
Example.. Many thin people believe they are overweight, though medically speeking they may actually not be. Beautiful people often feel ugly also. Just because someone is thin, beautiful, overweight, or anything at all, it doesn't necessarily mean they feel that way. Remember -- we are often our worst critics. Our confidence levels aren't the same, either. Some are high, some low.
Sometimes yes. For me, I dress like a skater because that's what I grew up around and makes me feel great and I do actually feel like myself, I tried dressing like a "baller" but I felt so uncomfortable.
Every has their own style and usually, that style is what makes them happy and even expresses how they really do feel on the inside rather than what they say they feel.
For me it does, I don't like my stomach so when I wear something tight across there I instantly do not feel good so I try to wear something that isn't really baggy but not tight if that makes sense. I like to try and make an effort when I go somewhere nice which can make me feel silly or just strange but if I'm comfy and dressed up then I feel great. :D
I think it somewhat does, in a way. I can't speak for everyone, but I know I personally dress and look like crap when I feel like crap, haha. When I'm really upset, I'm just like "whatever", and my appearance becomes the last thing on my mind.
Depending on how much self-confidence they have. Some people it really doesn't, which is odd to me. Cause to me it does a lot. Cause so many people judge off of appearences! Which is not right.
I absolutely think it does. Do I think it should? No. This world is way too into looks and not who the person is inside.
I think it sometimes does, but not in all cases.
