What does it mean to dream of clothes?

Last Updated on 6 days by Alina Dreamer

Within dreams, clothing acquires a much more significant meaning since it is more than a way to identify ourselves consciously. But also functions as an escape valve of your inner self to reflect aspects you do not dare to recognize or demonstrate in your waking life.

As previously mentioned, our clothes reflect part of our personality. For this reason, you should consider the parts of your body that you are hiding or revealing to other people, as well as the color, which in dreams has very strong symbolism.

Meanings of dreaming about clothes

Pile of clothes dream meaning

In dreams, visualizing a pile of clothes reflects a facade that you assume does not show who you really are. Piles of clothes on a dream plane show that there is something you are trying so desperately to hide, that your personality is being affected, making you a cold and unfeeling person who cares only about superficialities. That vain attitude does you no good. You have to find a way to return to being that humble and simple person you were before

Dreaming of piled-up clothes

Nothing is more despairing than seeing piles of clothes scattered everywhere. If you dreamed of clothes piled up, conflicts are probably coming that will not be solved peacefully. You may suffer a loss or separation in the future, so prepare yourself mentally so that you will not suffer for a long time.

Dreaming of new clothes

Suppose in your dreams you were wearing new clothes. In that case, it means that, if you are not experiencing it right now, very soon you will suffer from a change of personality, that you are about to assume a renewed attitude. It is possible that you have adopted a new way of expressing yourself, possibly influenced by unknown people in your social circle, or that someone in your life is becoming more meaningful to you, so you are looking to adopt aspects of their personality that you want to integrate into your own. Analyze whether these changes in perspective are positive in your current situation, as you must consider whether this is what you really want.

Dreams of dirty clothes

Dirty clothes in dreams symbolize the feeling that your reputation is being called into question, as someone is looking for a way to harm you. It is not healthy to pay attention to the negative comments transmitted to us by the people around us, but, even so, look for ways to protect yourself from wrong opinions.

Dreaming about baby clothes

There are times in life when we leave behind some habits without even thinking about them. Therefore, dreaming of baby clothes means that your subconscious has accepted that you managed to overcome a bad habit that was subtly affecting you.

Dreams of shopping for clothes

Although getting new clothes is exhilarating, buying them is not so much. Undoubtedly, even the person who most enjoys shopping for clothes experiences frustration and stress. Hence, buying clothes in dreams is a symbolization of anxiety that you are suffering from when trying to fit into some social circle or for some role that you are trying to assume, which generates great amounts of stress for your desire to achieve it successfully, as well as the change it would represent in your life.

Dreaming of white clothes

The color white in oneirology studies is often translated as tranquility and serenity. Dreaming of white clothing may indicate that you know inwardly that it is time to take it easy. You may be currently going through a crisis that is plunging you into depression or distress so that clothing in your dreams in white indicates that you should relax a little.

Dreams washing clothes

Washing clothes in dreams is a positive message. It means that you are looking to make amends for past mistakes, to not only be at peace with yourself about some bad decisions you have made but that you are looking to do something about it. You may not be doing it consciously, but inside you are creeping a desire to make amends to people you have hurt. You should know that offering apologies accompanied by action are the best way to purge yourself of evil energies, bringing prosperity into your life.

Dreaming of underwear

If you dream of underwear, there are parts of you and your personality that you are reluctant to show in public. Underwear symbolizes how reserved or reserved you are since you do not show yourself as you are in front of other people, repressing sincere desires and opinions inside. This is not all bad since we all possess secrets. Still, hiding so many emotions inside can become saturated and channel them in a way that is not entirely beneficial to you.

Dreams with used clothes

Suppose in your dreams you were wearing second-hand clothes. In that case, all your actions, attitudes, and tasks are not considered since they are relegated to someone else’s shadow. You may currently find yourself subjected or subjected to taking joint responsibility, where the other person takes all the credit for your effort, or you are constantly being compared to someone else who is “better” than you. We are all different people, so you should not feel bad if you have a distinct personality or someone else seeks to profit at your leisure; your good energies and positive attitude will take you further than that other person will ever reach.

Dreaming of old clothes

Suppose you find yourself wearing old, torn, or torn clothes in your dreams. In that case, it indicates that some flaws in your personality are tormenting you. You should analyze what aspects of yourself are not entirely pleasing to the people around you and work on improving to create a superior version of yourself.

Dreams with black clothes

If in your dreams all your clothes are black, you have an anxious and fearful personality, you are not the type of person who dares to take risks in your life. It is time for you to look inside yourself and analyze what you are afraid of and what makes you feel so anxious. These emotions are harmful and detrimental to your mental and spiritual balance. In such a case, depending on the seriousness of the matter, I advise you to contact an expert on the subject to find the problem’s source.

Dreaming of hanging clothes

Suppose in your dreams you visualized clothes hanging or hanging on a hanger. In that case, it means that you are currently going through a series of sudden changes that have been affecting your personality. You want to show the whole world that you are no longer the same person as before, to show a totally renewed you. Usually, you desire to externalize the internal changes you are living, restoring your style completely.

To dream of hanging out clothes

Contrary to piles of laundry, if you dream that you are hanging out clothes, it suggests that you are revealing hidden aspects of yourself. You have matured to such an extent that you have understood that people’s opinions should not affect our personality, so you are showing your true self, which brings confidence and self-assurance.

Dreams with wet clothes

Oneirology experts have disputes when interpreting what it means to dream of wet clothes. On the one hand, a group claims that wet clothes in dreams symbolize cleansing and purification of sins that have been tormenting us for a long time. On the other hand, one group claims that if you dream of wet clothes, you are losing part of your old identity, not necessarily being negative; they relate it mainly to the change that comes with maturity.

Dreaming of piled-up clothes

Nothing is more despairing than seeing piles of clothes scattered everywhere. If you dreamed of clothes piled up, conflicts are probably coming that will not be solved peacefully. You may suffer a loss or separation in the future, so prepare yourself mentally so that you will not suffer for a long time.

Dreams with clean clothes

Contrary to dreaming of dirty clothes, clean clothes in dreams symbolize success after a series of gossip and defamation. Also, it is a sign that, if you are facing any kind of difficulty at the moment, you will be able to solve them in such a way that they will even be a benefit and an advantage in your favor. Those people who were trying to harm you will be the ones who will have everything to lose without you having to take action in the matter: karma will take care of them.

Dreaming of a clothing store

Suppose you dreamt that you were in a clothing store. In that case, it means that you are looking for a way to completely renew your image, physically and in your attitude. You want people to perceive you differently, to notice that you are no longer the same person as before. It can also be strongly linked to stress generated by the desire to fit in or be fit to assume some position or role.

Dreams without underwear

As comfortable as it is, if you dream that you are without underwear, it means that there is something you are hiding, and you strongly fear it will be revealed. You may have shared a confidential piece of information with someone you trust, seeking to unburden yourself. Still, now that someone else knows about it, you are worried that your secrets may come to light. There are also different meanings to dreams of being naked.

To dream of stealing clothes

This dream is somewhat problematic. Suppose you dreamed that you were stealing someone else’s clothes. In that case, it means you feel contempt for them strongly, so your subconscious externalizes it through that criminal act. It is possible that that person undervalues you or does not give you enough merit, so you are looking for some way to get even. This is a horrible sign because it means you harbor selfish desires inside. Find a way to filter these feelings without hurting anyone.

Dreams that you get clothes as a gift

We all like to be shown their appreciation for us through some gift, so if you dreamed that someone gave you clothes, it is an excellent sign. That gesture they have had with you in your dream state is a clear sign that someone wants to get close to you. It may be someone with whom you lost contact or with whom you had a certain quarrel that has already been overcome.

Dreaming of changing clothes

To dream of changing your clothes is one of the dreams that can be taken literally. That is, it is a sign that there is something in you that you should change or that you are experiencing a change inside you that will soon be noticed on the outside. You may have lived through a situation that has made you see the world with different eyes. Therefore you can no longer see yourself in the same way, giving you a new point of view.

Dreams with red clothes

Suppose in your dreams you were wearing red clothes. In that case, it reveals that you are about to undergo an experience charged with passion and sentimentality, making you feel more alive than ever. After it happens, a long time of quietness will come, so try to enjoy to the fullest those moving days that are about to come.

Dreaming of yellow clothes

It would not be a good omen if you dreamed that you or someone close to you was wearing yellow clothes. Yellow clothes in dreams are synonymous with illness, so you or the person you visualized in your dreams may have some health problems shortly. Avoid contacting people suffering from infectious diseases because the health problem you will likely experience will last for a long time.

Dreams with girls’ clothes

Visualizing girls’ clothes in dreams means that you are not comfortable with the own decisions you have been making lately. Girl’s clothing in dreams symbolizes naivety and senseless outbursts, so you need to think for a moment about how you are behaving. You are an adult and should act like one, leaving all childish hints out of your system.

Dreaming of women’s underwear

Female underwear in dreams yields two different results, depending on the gender of the dreamer. On the one hand, if it is a woman, it means that you are beginning to accept your body with all the details you consider defects. Since one of the symbols of greater feminine sensuality is underwear, one must possess self-love. This is externalized as self-confidence and self-assurance. On the other hand, if a man dreamed of feminine underwear, it means he possesses repressed sexual desires that need to be satiated.

Dreams about trying on clothes

Trying on clothes for the first time generates expectations and a sense of exciting anticipation. Suppose in your dreams you tried on different dresses over and over again. In that case, it is a sign that you are trying to fit into a social group but that your attitude does not quite convince you. Hence, you repeatedly make slight changes in your personality, seeking acceptance from other people. You have to know that people must accept you as you are. Otherwise, being part of your social circle is of no benefit.
