We have all heard that expression – ‘did you get dressed in the dark?’ It’s meant to infer that the person didn’t put their look together well. Yesterday morning, I did in fact get dressed in the dark. My hubby landed late the night before after a golf trip, so I was being considerate and leaving him for a lie in. The temptation to put all the lights on was immense, but I resisted!
My wardrobe is organised in such a way that getting dressed in the dark was an easy job. Everything has a place and I can easily tell you where anything is at any time. All my clothes are hung by type i.e. all the dresses together, all the trousers together etc. All the tops are folded on shelves at the top and shirts hang up all together.
All of my colour schemes work together, so that every bottom half works with every top half. It was a casual day, so I could easily pull out a pair of jeans (blue) and top (cool pink) and a casual blue jacket. Easy peasy. I even managed to select my jewellery which is also either on hangers or in the boxes they came in.
The job of a wardrobe that works well in terms of colour, personality, lifestyle and body shape should be really easy. You shouldn’t have to think too hard about what to put on in the morning. Indeed, some leaders wear a uniform that is the same every day so they don’t need to make decisions on what they wear in the morning! That’s a bit extreme for me as I do love variety and I choose my clothes according to how I feel too.
If you spend far too long worrying about what to wear, perhaps now is the right time to detox your wardrobe! You will see an earlier blog about this from Integro Consultants. If you need help, one of our consultants will be delighted to guide you through it. Once you know what works for you life is very easy (well knowing what to wear anyway!) It helps you to loot good, feel more confident and it helps you to save time and money. You will no longer buy items that don’t work for you and just sit un-loved and un-worn in your wardrobe.
How is your wardrobe working for you?
