Enclothed Cognition: Surim Kim

Enclothed Cognition describes the concept in which the clothes you wear has an impact on your cognitive process. When you wear something you genuinely love, it is an instant confident booster. That being said, this phenomenon is important to me because getting dressed is something everyone faces each morning. If aware of this concept, one would be able to dress more confidently and have a positive impact on his or her own day. This is part of the latest installment on my blog:

Not only do I want to emphasize the importance of self-confidence in women, but men as well. This interview is dear to my heart because it features my boyfriend, Surim. Not only does he bring a fresh male perspective to the table, but he’s also one of the most confident people I know. Between the two of us, he is undoubtedly the one that is more outgoing. As far as style, Surim prefers a more minimal look with tasteful touches of streetwear influence with pieces such as a Supreme waist bag and Nike Flyknit Racer


Why did you decide to wear this outfit to go hiking?

I just purchased the olive bomber jacket(similar) the other day, but it was too hot to wear it. However it cooled down significantly the day we went, so I got to give the jacket a test run and based my outfit on that.

How do you typically decide what to wear?

I pretty much have set outfits in my mind and choose one based on the vibe I want to give that day and what I am doing.  


Do you have a style influence or icon?

Not really. I don’t look at one person to see what they are wearing. However, I tend to look at product launches and lookbooks if I need style inspiration. Specifically, I go to Hypebeast, the Cos lookbook, and /r/rawdenim

Anything else that inspires you stylistically?

I am really drawn to western looks like Clint Eastwood. Also, the classic rock era has a big influence on me.  

Do you think streetwear has gotten too mainstream lately?

I have been into the streetwear scene since 2007, and have witnessed the rise of the obvious big labels such as Bape and Supreme in mainstream media. As well as seeing brands such as Stussy and The Hundreds go from being in boutique stores to being in suburban malls. However, I understand these trends come and go and no one should base their purchases off of what is mainstream and what is not. I mean, I still love Supreme even though it is considered the quintessential “hypebeast” brand. I believe it was extremely beneficial that streetwear became mainstream, since it forced designers to push the boundaries and evolve, leading us out of the graphic-tee era to the more minimal/tech inspired looks out now. 



How does what you wear affect your mood? Confidence?

Dressing well definitely corresponds with how I feel for the rest of the day. When you know you are dressed well, your attitude reflects that – not in a cocky way though. Simply put, when you look good, you feel good. 

Do you think there a lot of guys who lack confidence? What advice would you give to them?

Of course there is a lot of guys who lack confidence and I feel like this is something that isn’t touched upon. Men can have confident issues too and I wish it was more normalized. But everyone deals with it a lot of different ways. Personally, my way was reaching out to new people and learning how to spark conversations. One does not have to be outgoing to be confident, however, confidence is a double-edged sword and can be confused with arrogance.
