dc.description.abstractThe influence of an individual’s dress practices on his/her sense of self has been studied for many years. The aim of the current research was to extend on previous findings, while examining the relatively unexplored area of individual’s everyday clothing preferences and its relationship to their overall self-concept. Also in this study, the relationship between dimensions within proximity of clothing to self and self-esteem were explored. The convenience sample of 111 participants completed an online survey assessing their clothing preference, self-concepts, proximity of clothing to self and self-esteem. Results indicated a correlation between some clothing preference categories (Minimalists, Classics and Powerhouse) and self-concept items (Formal, colourless), which generally confirmed previous research. No significance was found between proximity of clothing to self and self-esteemen
