Wolf Blitzer Thinks That Clothes are Part of People’s Identity
Being in front of the public for so many years, Blitzer has always maintained a great visual presentation of himself. His wife is partly to be thanked for that, but the remaining part is his self-realization about the importance of looking presentable.
In the same interview with HuffPost, when talking about what his clothes say about him professionally, he said that he tried to make his clothes speak out about his profession. He said:
I try to let them say that I'm a serious professional journalist, and I take my wardrobe seriously. I want to make sure I look nice and my clothes are flattering to me; and I work hard to look good.
He also emphasized the role of clothes in one’s brand image, saying,"I am not only representing myself, but I'm also representing my shows on CNN, and I'm representing CNN, so I just want to make sure that I don't embarrass the brand."
When he asked if the personal style is a professional asset, he responded positively, saying:
Yes, I do. I always tell people: Make sure you look good, your hair looks good, your outfits look good. What you wear says something about you. And you want to look professional.
Then he went on to reveal the best advice that he received regarding being himself when he got into TV:
"Let Wolf be Wolf."
