Causes of the problem and its solutions
You probably know that feeling: standing in front of a wardrobe that is filled to the brim with clothes, but all these things do not seem to fit. We tell you what can be hidden behind this phenomenon.
REASON #1. YOU RACE THE TRENDS
We live in a world of fleeting trends: what is at the peak of fashion today will become boring and annoying tomorrow. This does not mean that you need to completely ignore fashion trends, the main thing here is not to overdo it. If miniskirts, platforms and bright orange are in fashion now, stop, for example, only on skirts. Instead of wearing mega hits from head to toe, it’s better to add them pointwise to your looks.
REASON #2. YOUR DRESSING ROOM IS BAD ORGANIZATION
Sometimes behind the problem of “nothing to wear” is an elementary mess. It is most effective to organize the contents of the closet by category, not by color: hang jackets with jackets, shirts with shirts, trousers with trousers, and so on. Another “magical cleaning” guru, Marie Kondo, advises making sure that the length of things in the closet decreases from left to right. According to this principle, the wardrobe should first have categories with long coats, and at the end – skirts, tops and blouses made of flying materials. This arrangement greatly facilitates the daily choice.
REASON #3. MOST OF YOUR STUFF IS “FAST FASHION”
“Fast fashion” is fast because in less than half a year, these things will already have time to get bored. For example, you can often see a skirt bought in the mass market in the Instagram feed (an extremist organization banned in Russia) on other people, which is why you will want to wear the thing less and less. Abandoning fast fashion doesn’t necessarily mean spending on heavy luxury. Here we would like to recall the Miuccia Prada quote: “If you can afford Prada, please. If not, no big deal. Wear vintage. Be strong and proud.”
REASON #4. YOU OFTEN BUY THINGS LIKE OTHERS
Once again, we recall the test question that Natasha Goldenberg advises asking yourself before each purchase: “Does this thing really suit me, or did I just see it thirty times in the tape [of one banned social network] and ran to buy?” As beautiful as certain dresses or skirts look on others, those pieces may not fit you at all.
REASON #5. YOU HAVEN’T FOUND YOUR WOFS YET
WOF (without fail) is the abbreviation used by Tibi designer Amy Smilovich to describe simple wardrobe items that most likely won’t be in trend books, but they make you feel like yourself. It can be a thin black jumper, a light blue shirt, gray jeans, a jacket that looks great on you – in short, those things that you can wear even with your eyes closed. With your personalized WOFs, choosing your look in the morning will be easier, plus these pieces will keep you feeling cool and confident all day long.
