Why is it that sometimes you’re super inspired by your wardrobe, and you feel like you have a ton of outfits? And then, there’re other times, probably more often than that, you’re feeling uninspired and you’re feeling like you have a closet full of clothes and nothing to wear? Why is that?
Well, that is the question for today’s Ada Style Minute.
I just got off the call with some of my style clients and these are some of my new style clients, and some of the questions that came up were “Well, why is it that I’m feeling so uninspired? Why is it that I have this closet full of clothes and nothing to wear?”. And it is very common, and there are 3 reasons for it:
1. First of all, maybe your body shape changed or your weight fluctuated and so, the thing that you have in your closet no longer fit you and so they’re there for you to feel like you have a closet full of clothes and nothing fits! And that’s completely understandable.
That happened after I had my babies and my weight kind of fluctuated, it happened. And also, sometimes pandemic hits, and sometimes your weight goes up, sometimes it goes down, and so it’s completely normal that not everything on our closet actually fits our body shape.
2. The second reason why you feel like you have a closet full of clothes and nothing to wear is maybe that you’re not excited about your clothes anymore. So, for the most part of most of us, wear only 20% of what’s in our closet, because the other stuff either doesn’t fit or is from another season or whatever it might be.
So, of that 20%, we’re kind of exhausted. And maybe you’re looking for new inspiration, new accessories, new ways of wearing your outfits. This is very common and that’s something I actually teach in my style programs, like how to re-accessorize and how to put together outfits that you’ll feel and look fresh in.
3. And then, the third reason why you feel like you have a closet full of clothes but nothing to wear is maybe cause you’ve just outgrown your clothes. So, perhaps you’re at a different stage in your life now, either you’ve: a) retired, b) maybe you have a new position at work, c) maybe you’ve started your own business. And so you’re looking for your wardrobe to accompany your lifestyle and also help you reach your new goals. As they say “dress for the job that you want, not for the job that you have”. And that’s true! Because if you really want to reach your goals and if you really want those affirmations and really feel like you’re going to reach those goals, you have to feel like you’re dressing the part. Like wearing the clothes that are going to inspire you, lift you up, and empower you.
So, if your closet, for example, your wardrobe isn’t really speaking to the person that you are today or the person that you want to be tomorrow, well… It just doesn’t feel right, and therefore, you feel like you have a closet full of clothes and nothing to wear, which is completely normal.
