If you are one of those people who always wears the same clothes despite multiple clothes, don’t stop reading this article. You will love it!
It’s scientifically proven that most (if not all) women only use 20% of our women wardrobe.
We regularly do the same combinations when it comes to getting dressed because they are the ones we care about. We attribute this to our brain as its function is to do things in known ways. This is why it is very common to hear the phrase “I always use the same”.
Here are some recommendations to help you create new combinations and change how your brain works.
1.Clean your closet: This is the first step in realizing what is really in it.
If you are messy you will have to do some of your contribution as the closet order is key.
2. Organize your wardrobe according to the type and color of the garment: Strategically organizing your clothing is an effective way to avoid repeating it so many times that you can easily access it in a panoramic way.
An important trick is to organize them by category: first the blouses, shirts, then jackets, pants, dresses, etc. and these in turn by color, that way you know what you have and what you use more or less often.
3. Create new combinations: If you have trouble choosing OutfitsTake a few minutes to do the combinations for the week. For example, it can be Sunday.
This will help you calmly try on clothes, create different looks, be more creative, and experiment with combinations that may not have time due to the rush during the week. Discover the creativity inside you and the amount of looks you can put together without buying anything.
For this strategy to work, you need to flip the outfits. If one day you used a shirt and pants, use it for the following weeks, but now with a skirt.
4. Use accessories: Accessories have great power, I call them “the power of the third piece” as they are the key when it comes to hiding the fact that we are repeating the same pieces of clothing. When we use them, they are usually the center of attention and avoid the gaze of other clothes.
When you find yourself wearing the same thing as always, put a forgotten item in your closet. This will add a twist to your outfit and you will notice the difference.
You will leave your comfort zone and always wear the same!
5. Do not wear or buy clothes that are very noticeable and easy to remember: If you already have a jacket or blouse in very bright colors, it is obvious that it will attract attention everywhere. Try not to wear them that often! And if you want to buy clothes, keep this tip in mind. Clearly noticeable clothing is much easier for people to remember. If you love this item of clothing it is understandable, but don’t abuse it when you can make many other combinations.
When you get dressed, be aware, don’t do it automatically. Think about your essence, what you really want to wear, how you want to be seen, who your audience is and work to make that a reality. You need to do this in your buying process as well. Remember to have coherence between what you are and what you want to project.
In short, overcoming the habit of only using 20% of the parts in your closet isn’t overnight, but it’s also true that if you put your will to it and use these tips to help you, it’s not impossible .
