Now consider if what’s hanging in your wardrobe reflects your lifestyle pie chart or if there might be some unbalanced areas.
It can be helpful to split your wardrobe roughly into the four categories and visualise how the size of each pile works back with each slice of your pie chart. Your lifestyle will directly correlate to your wardrobe needs, and ideally your wardrobe will reflect this, a wardrobe that consists mostly of casuals is no good to you if you work in a corporate environment and vice versa.
But let’s face it, we’re all guilty of buying pieces that don’t necessarily fit into our lifestyle needs…dressy camisoles I’m looking at you!
I’ve never enjoyed wearing strapless bras but I continue to buy tops that require them because they’re just so pretty and I love everything else about them, but when it comes down to it they tend to hang in my wardrobe the majority of the time, unworn. Do you have a vice like this in your wardrobe? Identify it, become aware of it and be sure to keep your lifestyle needs front of mind on your next shopping trip.
