Wear More Clothes to Seem Smarter

Ah, winter.  It’s coming!  It’s my favorite time of the year.  I love the snow and the cold.  Call me crazy.  But, women also seem sexier to me this time of year.  It’s strange.  When summer rolls around there’s that initial sense of youth with all that exposed skin, but during winter, when women (or men, I suppose) are all bundled in scarves and boots and big jackets, there’s something massively appealing.  This article might explain it: we see people who wear more clothing as having more agency than those who don’t.  And for those of us who think intelligence and assertiveness are sexy qualities, covering up actually leads to a greater level of attraction.
