What am I going to wear today? How many times a week do you ask yourself that question, while staring hopelessly at your wardrobe?
I worked with a great client yesterday. Her style is casual, jeans, t-shirts, tanks. And she had a lot of it! She also had a ton of color, with a great mix of prints and solids. As we went through her closet, we realized that she really didn't need to buy too much at all (her husband was happy with that news, I'm sure!).
But, like many of us, she wears the same few outfits. She was frustrated that she had, what she felt was, a ton of clothes and yet would ask herself everyday "What am I going to wear?"
So, we came up with a fun and creative way for her (or you!!!) to get out of the rut, start thinking of new outfits, and actually wear those great clothes.
For one month, just one month, she can only wear each outfit one time. This only applies to her tops. Here is what she is going to do:
1. Pick out the outfit for the day, trying to wear it in just a little bit different way than usual. Add a scarf, wear a different necklace, pair with different jeans.
2. After laundry that week, she will hang everything she wore in a different section of her closet.
How does this help? My whole job is based on looking at someone's wardrobe with a different eye. Well, this will force her (and you!!) to do the same thing. You will be amazed at how it gets you to start thinking outside the box with your own wardrobe. I told her to be creative, put together things that she normally wouldn't think of. Try it!! You will love all the new looks you put together!
Here's a sneak peek at some of the fun stuff we put together for her:
