I know I’m not the only one that’s noticed all of the stereotyping going on just based on clothing. I’ve even caught myself judging before I even know a person. In this society what you wear and how you present yourself means so much more than it should. I’ll give just a few examples. If I see a group of girls, all wearing Victoria’s Secret, I automatically assume they’re rich and stuck up. If I see a guy dressed sporty with really nice Jordan’s I think he’s cool and popular. When I look down the hallway and see someone with holes in their clothes and really old shoes, I think they’re poor. Let’s say two twins walked up to me at different times. One was wearing nice clothes and looked put together, but the other one looked grimy.  I would without a doubt be more open to conversation with the “better” looking one.  If this society preaches so much about clothes not defining you, then why do we let it?
