O oh, i don’t have anything to wear ….!

It had been always easy for me  to select outfits that are fun and colorful. I know, not good because I did not have outfits to go to work in (I was volunteering some of my time in a local school)

A balanced/ workable wardrobe should not only reflect your style but also your lifestyle.

It would be so easy   if we knew what we should buy to have a perfect wardrobe.

Just buying few key items in your wardrobe would give you a lot more options. So start focusing on those categories in your lifestyle that is unrepresented in your wardrobe.

The exercise that each one of my clients has to do when they come to me for image makeovers is – just take paper, pen and maybe a cup of tea and try thisJ, trust me this is going to save lot of time and money.

List down the activities you do in an average – a week, a month and a year, and how often you do it.

Group each activity based on the clothes you wear, like clothes I wear to buy groceries and taking kids to the park are the same.

Don’t consider just the number of hours you are spending on each category, look for the number of days.  Like you have to spent 8 hours at the office from Monday to Friday and then Saturday and Sunday for 1 hour each you go partying. So you need 5 work outfit and 2 outfits to party in a week. Some categories are casual, work, nightlife, gym/jogging, swim, sports, special occasions ….

Hence, ideally your wardrobe should correspond to the distribution of different categories and that is your life style. To make it simpler just see how many outfits you may need in each category in a week. For example

Work = 5 outfits

Party= 2 outfits

Casuals = 4 outfits

Gym = 3 outfits

Make this list for a week, month or a year, but do remember that it also is based on the number of times you would not like to repeat your ‘look’ (not pieces of outfit).

This will give a fair idea on where you should be spending your money.

So does your wardrobe pie equals to your lifestyle pie?
