No matter what your take is on fashion, you have probably felt confidence from wearing an outfit that suited you. This means clothing can make you feel more confident and productive or just the opposite.

According to a study published in the Journal of Experimental Social Psychology (2012), the term “enclothed cognition” was used to illustrate the “systematic influence that clothes have on the wearer's psychological processes”.

Researchers at the Northwestern University in Illinois looked into the effects of wearing a lab coat while doing attention-related things. Their studies showed that wearing a lab coat had a positive impact on attention levels. Enclothed cognition can be defined as the symbolic meaning of the clothes as well as the physical experience of wearing them.

This means that clothing can be used to project confidence. Thus, here are six universal style items that could improve any man’s confidence on a daily basis:

Valued accessory:

Most likely, you have that one piece of accessory that reminds you of someone special or a cherished memory. This reminder is will bring up your mood and confidence on a down day. Style pieces with a valued history and easier to wear because they are like second skin.

Mature wallet:

A horrible and rusty wallet will ruin a great, sharp outfit at the end of a date or business lunch. Your wallet should by no means be pricey, rather a simple, genuine quality leather one can go a long way in making you feel confident all round.

Nice, wearable shoes:

Shoes can make or break an entire look. Whether you are wearing sneakers, dress shoes or boots, make sure your choice of footwear is clean and comfy. You won't project confidence if you are worrying about blisters or gazing down at an annoying stain. On the other hand, a stylish pair of shoes that hugs your feet comfortably will add extra pep to your step.

Tailored white tee shirt:

Most women love a man that could pull off the jeans and t-shirt look. It's minimal. Also going minimal passes the message that you don’t need too much to feel confident. On the other hand, make sure that you’re not lazy about your simple look, as white tee should be vividly white and well fitted.

Statement watch play
