Nothing to Wear!

Women usually love what they buy, yet hate two-thirds of what is in their closets. - Mignon McLaughlin

Nothing to wear! Only a woman can understand this statement. It is estimated that most women wear only about a third of what is in their wardrobes. The remaining two-thirds either do not fit, are out of fashion, do not match with anything else, or are not right for the occasion.

So what can you do if you are caught up in the dilemma?

My best advice is to have an honest look at your clothes and sort out things using following criteria:
  • things that haven't been worn in the last 300 days or so
  • things that do not fit anymore
  • things that do not match with anything else
  • things that are hopelessly out of fashion if you do not want to look like someone from another era
To sort your wardrobe you may need to consecrate a whole weekend. You will have to take everything out, and probably even try most of your clothes. With some creativity you may come up with new ways to wear what you already have, but if nothing works you may have to get rid of your unwanted stuff and make space for something new. 

Finding new home for your unwanted clothes should not be difficult. You can either donate them, or sell them in a second-hand store or on e-bay.

A good friend or a style coach might be needed if you have a difficult time determining what stays or what has to go. Phrases like "I might still wear it" or "I am going to lose weight soon" do not work if you want to clean up your act, so be honest to yourself.

Once you cleared your wardrobe space from unwearable and unworn items, you may want to have a serious look at your own preferences and change the way you are shopping for new clothes. What is your personal style? What colors suit you best?

One of the items that should not be missing in your wardrobe is a T-Shirt. T-Shirts are rather inexpensive and never go out of fashion. The styles range from funny and provocative to stylish and understated. They come in many colors and designs, and can be worn on many occasions. A simple black tee with black slacks, Chanel flats and a string of pearls may all you need for an elegant evening out in the City.

In case you wonder, sometimes it is as simple as that. You might be even setting a trend since there is magic in simplicity.

At Jimmo Designs we absolutely love to create designs that suit the most sophisticated and choosy minds.

As far as gents are concerned, we are almost certain that man can never have enough T-Shirts. Our ever growing collection has something for everybody.
