Designer Labels Make You Look Better

Designer Brands Make You Look Better, Study Shows

Who knew your Chanel bag would make you a better person, at least in other people's eyes. Wearing brand-name clothing and toting high-end bags will get you better job recommendations and a higher pay, according to a study by psychologists at Tilburg University in the Netherlands.
