Unscramble the Blue Letters

Now, being a fashion lover, I've known this forever, but scientists actually have a name for it. It's called "Enclothed Cognition," the co-occurrence of two factors: the symbolic imgnaen of clothing and the physical experience of wearing the clothing, both of which have a ciedrt correlation to how you feel about yourself. There's actually a professor in the UK by the name of Karen J. epni. She wrote a book called "Mind What You Wear: The Psychology of Fashion." She states in her book that when you put hleocst on, you adapt the rrcieahsattcics of what you're wearing, whether you realize it or not. That's why you feel like a rock star when you put on those perfect-fitting jeans. That's why you feel invincible when you put on that power suit, and that's why you feel beautiful in that little black dress. But that's exactly why evriol felt so itdaeslo when he couldn't wear what he dawent to wear. He even said to me one time, "Mom, wearing sweatpants every day makes me feel like I'm dressing disabled."

Original Text

Now, being a fashion lover, I've known this forever, but scientists actually have a name for it. It's called "Enclothed Cognition," the co-occurrence of two factors: the symbolic meaning of clothing and the physical experience of wearing the clothing, both of which have a direct correlation to how you feel about yourself. There's actually a professor in the UK by the name of Karen J. Pine. She wrote a book called "Mind What You Wear: The Psychology of Fashion." She states in her book that when you put clothes on, you adapt the characteristics of what you're wearing, whether you realize it or not. That's why you feel like a rock star when you put on those perfect-fitting jeans. That's why you feel invincible when you put on that power suit, and that's why you feel beautiful in that little black dress. But that's exactly why Oliver felt so isolated when he couldn't wear what he wanted to wear. He even said to me one time, "Mom, wearing sweatpants every day makes me feel like I'm dressing disabled."
