Closet Psychology 101: What Your Clothing Says About You

What is in a closet? Heaps of unworn clothing, dresses with tags still on them, an ex-boyfriend’s sweaters, or jeans that are too tight? Often what we find in a woman's closet gives us a peek into her personality, emotional state, fears or desires. How does a closet project who you are to other people, and more importantly, is your wardrobe covering up your potential? We spoke with Tracy DiNunzio, the CEO and founder of Tradesy, to give us a little insight about what exactly is lurking in our closets.

Your Closet is Filled With...Logos

If almost everything you own is logo-ridden, you may be trying to hide your true identity.

"I definitely see women who will only buy stuff if it has the designer logo on it. That’s always a really interesting personality type because there is so much about what you want the world to see and what you don’t want the world to see when you put someone’s name front and center on your body.

It is really a form of hiding. Again this is an extreme, when everything you buy has a logo on it, it may mean that these women had something happen in their transition from teenager to adulthood. By kind of covering yourself in logos and symbols of other concepts other than yourself, you avoid having to form your own identity."
