Though we don’t usually think about it this way, our clothing is actually an important part of our identity. How we dress tells others a lot about us, and this has been a trend throughout history. Think about it, back when social status and class structures were an integral part of society, your clothing told others your status. Peasants dressed a certain way, the only way they could dress within their means to afford clothing, while nobles dressed differently. Back in Ancient Japan, kimonos even told a story about who you were based on the patterns stitched within the fabric.
