Why you should get involved in the Simple Clothes Challenge
Many women could be accused of being a bit obsessed with clothes and buying a new outfit for every occasion, without thinking about what they already have in the wardrobe.
In fact, buying a new outfit can be part of the fun of a night out, a wedding or other event. But the big downside with this can make a wardrobe full of clothes, many of which have hardly been worn and means that deciding what to wear can be an arduous task.
The idea of sorting out those clothes is also daunting, and this is where the Simple Clothes Challenge comes in. Want a simple, straightforward idea to sort your wardrobe issues and free up time for other things – well here it is.
As a rule, we wear only 20% of our clothes for 80% of our time – we have our favourite outfits that we wear for set occasions, we have casual clothes for relaxing around the house and the odd another piece for other times.
This means that women own somewhere in the region of 100 items of clothing, not including underwear and nightwear but only wear around 30 items. Added to this is an average of 22 items in a woman’s wardrobe that have never been worn!
We also have a habit of keeping clothes as keepsakes to remind us of an event, a particular time in life or hope that they will come back into fashion or hope we will fit into them again in the future.
This means that wardrobes are crammed with clothes that no longer fit, are no longer in fashion or that we simply just don’t like anymore. They are taking up space & causing clutter.
Simple Clothes Challenge
So why not have a try at the Simple Clothes Challenge?
What you do is straightforward – select 14 items of clothing to wear over the next three months, working alongside your schedule, so you know what events you need to have clothes for. As you are putting this wardrobe capsule together, you can see if you need any essential new items for the period.
This exercise removes all the clothes that you don’t wear and won’t wear in the next three months and leaves you with a condensed capsule of clothes.
This means getting ready in the morning is quicker, less stressful and can even save you money because, after the initial sort, you won’t be buying any new clothes.
You save all that time decided on your outfit, cleaning and ironing all those clothes you might want and can do something more productive instead.
You can even do your bit for the environment while doing this, as there will be fewer clothes being bought and then thrown out.
