4 reasons why you have nothing to wear when standing in front of your closet

When I talk to women, I often hear that they have nothing to wear and that their everyday getting dressed is not a pleasure for them, but a necessity that must be done.

Interestingly, the same women do not complain about lacking clothes in their wardrobe, on the contrary, they have lots of them, but even frequent purchases do not change the state of affairs: they have nothing to wear.

Are you one of these women? You have but you don’t at the same time?

Below let me share 4 of the most common reasons why this is so.

  • You have a mess in the closet.

Stuffed heaps of clothes, pants, skirts, blouses, sweaters scattered in various places?

In such conditions, it is hard to understand what and how to combine and what matches together.

In addition, in a hurry, it’s hard to find anything trying to dig down to something specific that flashed in front of your eyes last week. And this is how you end up once again reaching for the first thing in front of you.

Finally clean your closet. Sweatshirts for sweatshirts, sweaters for sweaters, trousers etc. or arrange things in sets or occasions: work, gym, evening, etc.

If you have a small space, invest in new cassette hangers and multi-functional boxes so that you can sort things and divide them into specific parts of the garment that you can easily locate.

  • You keep relics of the past in your closet.

At first glance, your wardrobe is full of clothes for all occasions. However, when you reach for another hanger with clothes, it turns out that it is too small (but has been waiting for better times for about 8 years 🙂 ), too big, it is a missed gift for a Christmas, birthday, it is ugly and bizarre (but from the designer it was for 75% discounted ), fashionable 3 decades ago (but it was expensive so it’s a pity to give it back). The list of reasons for which you keep antiques is long and yes I know .. it’s complicated, but a common feature is that they are useless.

It is not surprising then that you have nothing to wear because you actually do not have things for everyday use. Get rid of them, sell them, give them to friends, give them to the needy. It will turn out that you really have space and the need to buy new things and if you do, you will eventually have something to wear.

  • You have too much stuff.

It is said that plenty is no plague and opulence does no harm but having too many clothes might a cause why you feel you have nothing to wear.

Let’s face it, if a year has 365 days and you could change a few times a day to use everything available in your wardrobe, then your wardrobe isn’t too big. Is it possible to use such a wardrobe fully, unless you are a professional stylist? understandable that so much can be overwhelming, and you can reach for the simplest considerations by walking the same clothes non-stop.

Consider whether the size of your wardrobe is due to any of the above points. If not, compulsive shopping is a way to improve mood or emotional deficiencies? Or maybe it’s time to think about more conscious purchases, give up fast fashion and it’s time to change your fashionable attitude?

  • You lack balance in the wardrobe.

Do you love airy, romantic dresses and your purchases usually end with another one for the collection, even though the purchase plan was completely different?

Do you like yoga outfits and the vision of yourself in such outfits despite the fact that you’ve been to yoga only once in your life?

Do you have a passion for high heels even though your work requires comfortable flat shoes?

Such situations make your wardrobe an unbalanced “non-capsule” and at the same time impractical.

Check if in your wardrobe:

  • You have the right amount of up and down garments that you can combine
  • You have the right amount of basic clothing in neutral colours, which is a combination of patterns, colours, sporty and elegant style, etc.
  • Your shoes, handbags and accessories match your clothes
  • Your clothing matches the proportion appropriate to the occasion? (working and frequently used clothes should account for about 80% of the total garment).

Make a thorough list and check the purchase of which items of clothing will make the whole thing more harmonious and practical.

Sometimes small changes in the closet make a huge difference in the quality of functioning in everyday life and affect your style.
