People often allow themselves to think of clothing as trivial, superficial. Some pretend, “Clothes don’t matter.” Nonsense! I ask you, “When was the last time you went out without your clothes on?” I say that clothing fills a basic need for survival in the world and communication to the world. Like shelter and food, clothing is a basic resource we need to learn how to use for our benefit. This book is written for you. I will identify specific pieces of clothing and accessories proven to work effectively to simplify your life, with additional options allowing more creativity and individuality. With this book I want to make you more aware of the everyday aspects of dress and dressing. I want to enable you to use your clothing as a resource, a tool to help you think, feel, and act better, receiving positive reactions from others throughout your day—your closet being your toolbox.
