The question of people’s behavior and clothes they wear has been discussed for a very long time. Some people say that clothes effects people’s behavior, whereas others do not agree. They believe that education plays a bigger role in a way people behave.

In my opinion people’s clothes really impact the way they behave. First of all, nowadays clothes have become a part of people’s image and a way of behavior. For example, people of different occupations dress differently. A person in a suit of policeman cannot act as a person wearing a sport suit. Secondly, by changing clothes, a person can change their lives. It is a scientific fact that people are conditioned by many things, like food, cars, social status and clothes have the strongest position in this list. For instance, wearing aristocrat’s or businessmen clothes people try to act accordingly to match this image.

At the same time there are people who claim that education plays the main role in people’s behavior. They say that no matter how a person is dressed, he or she will always behave well, if they have good education and they are well-bred. Clothes play just a secondary part in their way of behaving.

I do not agree with the opinion mentioned above. Even an ill-bred person changes when they start wearing clothes that are not supposed to do some violence or behave badly.

In conclusion, I would like to say there are opposing views on this issue. At first sight clothes do not influence the way people behave, but in actual fact it seriously condition people’s way of acting. Thus, I strongly believe that clothes people are wearing can influence their behavior.
