Never change. Ever.
Did you know that some of the most well known creators of fashion don the same ol smocks, pantaloons and loafers everyday? It’s ironic, dontchathink? Actually, it’s becoming way more common nowadays.
In the land of fast fashion, capsule wardrobes are on the rise. We’re not as cut off from this minimal wardrobe movement as we think, though. Popular icons like Karl Lagerfeld, Steve Jobs and Pee-Wee Herman have done it for forever already, and have achieved great success to boot. And it turns out there are some pretty solid benefits to minimal dress we should all be aware of. Here’s a few perks of going personal style samesies all day errday.
1. Fewer Decisions
Hmm, let’s see after you decide to wake up, you have to decide if you’re going to the gym, what’s for breakfast and lunch, whether or not you want to get smashed at lunch, if you should take the stairs or the elevator, if you’re truly ready to permanently delete Dave Matthews Band from your iTunes, how to cancel a night out with your college roommate who’s in town for spring break even though graduation was eight years ago, etc. etc. etc. Good Lord & Taylor! How many more decisions do you need in a day?!
Removing even one small decision (like picking out clothes) in the morning will lessen the blow for the bigger ones that show up later. Help you help yourself.
2. Less Stress
Scenario: You're already running late to work and you catch a glimpse of yourself in the mirror on the way out and realize the dorsal fin of the dolphin tattoo on your left breast is CLEARLY VISIBLE thanks to the v neck cami you decided to sport without an outer layer. WELCOME TO STRESSVILLE! The resolution here is as simple as preparing an outfit out the night before. Also, with fewer options there’s less room for stressful mistakes. Besides, a silk blouse and blazer looks way better on you than a face rash, girl.
3. More Time
Last year, a survey taken by the Daily Mail found that women spend five months out of their working lives picking outfits. NO THANKS. Just imagine what you can do with all that extra time every morning! Coffee while sitting, reading the morning paper, PERFECTING THE ICING SWIRLS ON YOUR TOASTER STRUDEL!!
4. Less Spending
No more of this buying, trying and returning nonsense. Trial and error fashions are donezo, k? Take a look in your closet. What do you really wear? Maybe invest in 10 solid outfits instead of 30. By spending less money, you can become a very rich bitch.
5. More Confidence
Once you’ve scaled down your wardrobe, it’s easier to feel confident in your look. Think about it, instead of Baskin Robbins 32 flavors, you’re now serving up some classic Neapolitan realness.
5. Achieve Icon Status
An easy way to reach icon status is to put the brakes on miscellaneous fashion. Instead of being known as the person wearing all the trends, get noticed for wearing the same damn thing! Does anyone really notice what Ana Wintour is wearing apart from those shady shades? Is Judge Judy any less of a boss with that lacy collar courtroom look? NO! A uniform isn’t untrendy it’s wearable power. Consistency is KING!
