Being successful could have a number of effects on you. It might be a positive change or it could take a negative turn as well. More or less, success does change a person. The change could be conspicuous in your clothes, your personality or behavior, confidence level, or on your lifestyle as a whole. According to widely accepted notion, we think that successful people wear trendy and expensive outfits.
Their life would be extravagant and full of adventures. However, successful entrepreneurs like Mark Zuckerberg and Tom Wolfe likes to keep it simple. No matter how much their lives has changed for good, their appearance has not altered a bit.
Mark Zuckerberg likes to don a jeans,T-shirt, and a hoodie sweat shirt while going to office. Although Steve Jobs is one of the most successful business persons in the world. But he too prefer a jeans, black turtleneck and sneakers on most working days.
All these successful people wear different outfits and follow their own signature style.
They do not strive to be a fashion symbol. Instead they fill us with awe with their simplicity. There are a lot of examples who don outfits like common folks. They have no qualms in appearing like a common man.

Now the question arises- Inspite of being a billionaire, they did not bring much change to their appearance. Here we are gonna acquaint you with some valid reasons for the same.
1. Simplicity is their greatest weapon.
When you do not have a large wardrobe, it becomes simple to decide what you should wear every day. Being such successful entrepreneurs, they tend to live a busy life and therefore could not invest time in such trivial decisions. It definitely makes their life simple.
2. It is all a matter of priorities.
Successful people like Mark Zuckerberg have to work 24/7. He is reserved and absorbed in his work all the time. He is always exploring some new ideas, solving problems people are facing on Facebook etc. And the most important, he is always striving to make new changes and making his company grow further. Therefore, he thinks it best to wear the same kind of outfit every day, thereby chucking all the problem at once.
3. They choose comfort over fashion.
Fashionistas like models or artists invest a great amount of time getting ready. Their public appearance matters a lot. But it is not so with these business people. They prefer comfort over being in trend. It does not matter if you are looking average. Because people appreciate you for your work more than your clothes.
There are some more reasons which I am going to sum up here-
4. They do personal branding unconsciously.
Famous personalities wear same outfits every day which knowingly and unknowingly associates themselves with that brand.
5. Confidence level boosts up.
They are not shy to carry out their simplest of outfits. People become habitual to their style and start recognizing them in their signature style which boosts up their confidence level.
