Simplify And Find Your True Style With A 10-Item Wardrobe

Simplify And Find Your True Style With A 10-Item Wardrobe

It’s a common conundrum: We have too many clothes and nothing to wear. Tailor your wardrobe into just 10 core pieces (plus extras), however, and you could change your life.

Jennifer L. Scott relates on this TEDx talk the benefits of paring down your wardrobe. Besides saving you money and making mornings easier, focusing on just 10 (or 15 or 20) essential items forces you to think about presenting your view of yourself and also fuses your sense of style with every aspect of your life. At the very least, it could free you from the tyranny of clothing and eliminate small yet draining decisions you need to make.

Scott offers examples of the 10 core items, for women and more men. A female core wardrobe for autumn might include: one pair of slacks, two jeans, three dresses and four blouses. For men: seven shirts and three trousers.

This doesn’t include extras like t-shirts, sweaters, outerwear, scarves and special-occasion clothes, but the point is to get your essential clothing into a manageable capsule so you could pull any two pieces together at any time. When you buy higher-quality clothes instead of a “fast food” approach, you also live a less wasteful lifestyle. Time to get rid of your clothing clutter.
