Clothes make the man.

This expression suggests that one's appearance is important in one's success.

Can you think of any proverbs that suggest the opposite, saying that one must not be fooled by appearances?

 

ANSWERS:

Don't judge a book by its cover.
Appearances can be deceiving.

"We should look to the mind, and not to the outward appearance."

"Do not judge by appearance; a rich heart may be under a poor coat." 

I like this one: "What lies behind appearance is usually another appearance."

Hello Minoo and Serg,

First and foremost the easiest one: "Clothes don't make the man."  (I told you, it was easy ;) )

And then: "The man makes the suit."

Probably the most famous one: "Don't judge a book by its cover."

This must be an old one: "An ape's an ape, a varlet's a varlet, though they be clad in silk or scarlet."

I also like your third and final one, Serg;

We are like onions with different layers. "Know Thyself", like he said ...

Wise proverbs, Phil! Besides, they're helpful as a nice excuse for my accidentally sloppy appearance. :D

Nice ones, gentlemen! Thank you for your contribution.

There's a simple one I'd like to add: Appearances can be deceiving.
