Repetitive Wardrobe Syndrome

If there were a support group for this, I’d be a member; my closet is an endless array of khaki pants, jeans, and white t-shirts and tops.  And while I mix and match all my stuff, because I own so many of the same thing or the same thing just in different colors, I may think it is a different outfit, but it all looks the same.  Then there’s the fact that I own almost no jewelry, and if I’m not wearing my Sketchers flip flops in warm weather, then I’m wearing my Sketchers slip-ons when it’s chilly. 

Numerous articles say most women wear 20% of the clothes in their closet; that can cause Repetitive Wardrobe Syndrome but so can having lots of the same things.  If you only wear 20% of what’s in your closet, then that’s an easy fix.  But what if you are like me and own so many of the same thing?  How do you fix that?  This is where a personal shopper or shopping assistant comes in handy, and I bet if you stop and think about it, you probably know someone that dresses with a bit of flair.  Why not ask him or her to go shopping with you?  After all, we all love spending someone else’s money.
  • Suggestion 1: Ask your friend to help you put together an outfit, one that you will wear, that’s a little bit edgy.  Because all your clothes look the same, you can’t throw this one in and wear it twice a week, so to get some more mileage out of it, wear it to work, then find another event to wear it for, then wait two weeks and wear it to the office again.
  • Suggestion 2: Let your friend pick out one or two flashy pieces that you can wear with multiple items.  For instance, you could pair a fun jacket or blazer with a skirt for work and then wear it again with a pair of jeans for a weekend event.
  • Suggestion 3:  Consider purchasing a few accessories like a chunky necklace or a pair of colorful pumps.  Ask your friend to help you pair them with some of your simple or basic pieces to add a little bit of flair.
These are a few suggestions if you are feeling like a change, but honestly if you are happy, then stop worrying.  This woman has worn the same outfit for over a year and no one has seemed to notice.
