How do you go about deciding on your character's style, as in, what they wear? This may seem like a stupid question (I'm famous for those) but have you ever really thought about it or does it just come naturally. There are times when I like to describe or make reference to what my characters are wearing so I've been thinking about this quite a lot lately. Obviously, a lot will depend on their job or in what timeframe your story is set, (I can't see Grog the caveman waving goodbye to his wife while he rides the local dinobus to the stone age version of Walmart for a new pair of slacks ... - OK, so they did it in the Flintstone's ...) But even they had their own style. You wouldn't dream of seeing Wilma Flintstone in anything other than her white, one shoulder dress and victory roll hair updo. The same goes for Robert Langdon from Dan Brown's books, he was always in slacks and Harris tweed. But what about your characters? How do you decide what they wear, where they shop, whether they use a rucksack or a messenger bag, socks or no socks (one of my characters never wears socks) etc?
