What clothing attracts poverty: what should not be worn under any circumstances

Folk wisdom suggests that certain clothing can 'attract' poverty

Many folk signs have long been associated with clothes. For example, it is believed that you shouldn't hang things on the back of a chair - there is a chance to bring hardship and lack of money to your home. It was also advised against making rags out of old clothes, as this would lead to illness and bad health.

Superstitious people believe that some clothes seem to attract poverty. Read the OBOZREVATEL article to find out whether you can wear your parents' clothes and why you should be careful with monochromatic clothes.

What is recommended to do with the things of the deceased

Our ancestors believed that it was very dangerous to wear the clothes of someone who had passed away. There are many versions: such things can harm health, cause hardship and a lack of money, lead to serious problems in the family, and bring tears and misfortune.

People used to say that it was better to burn the belongings of the deceased or, as a last resort, give them to the needy. This way, the sign will lose its negative meaning. However, the superstition does not apply to family jewelry, as it will not bring negative things.

Clothes associated with negative memories

There is a category of things that remind us of unpleasant or tragic events. In the first days of the full-scale invasion, most Ukrainians were so scared and shocked that they simply did not pay attention to their clothes. Some people had a sweater or sweatshirt that they wore in shelters during air raids. Someone traveling to a safe place was on the road for several days without being able to change their clothes. The list goes on and on: a dress worn on a bad date, jeans worn when you got fired from your job, a T-shirt that every time you don't wear it, something bad happens. If you have things in your closet that are associated with unpleasant events, it's best to get rid of them.

Can I wear my parents' clothes

Superstitionists do not recommend wearing your parents' clothes after them, even if your mother's dress is perfectly preserved and your jeans look very trendy now. They say that things can accumulate the energy of their owners, and it has a particularly strong effect on close relatives.

Black and gray shades of clothes

Monochromatic clothes look stylish and suit many looks. But, according to psychologists, the wardrobe should be diluted with bright colors at least occasionally. This will bring novelty, achievements, accomplishments, and victories into your life.

It is worth noting that there is an old belief that some things should not be thrown away. This, for example, applies to bags and wallets. Throwing a wallet in the trash can bring bad luck and a lack of money. It is also advised not to throw away underwear and children's clothes.
