Having previously been a model you would think I would not be guilty of this fashion crime, but until recently I humbly must admit that I was. I had clothes I had never worn and then could not find anything to wear- so I still kept buying more!
I think part of my need to have loads of clothes that I never wore came about from spending over 10 years as a model, where all my clothes had to fit in one suitcase, with all my finance text books as well, and they were big text books-so there wasn’t much room for my clothes. I can still remember the astonished look on a photographers assistant’s face when she realised how few clothes I had at the height of my fashion career, I can still remember her saying to me “but I even have more clothes than you-and I’m an assistant with no money!”
So anyway I recently came across a stylist who said something to me that made a lot of sense. She said the main reason why people keep buying clothes that they never wear is because, they either buy clothes in colors that don’t suit them or shapes that don’t flatter them. You need to buy shapes that look good on you and in colors that suit you. If it means most of your wardrobe is two colors, that’s fine. There is no need to keep buying the same shape and color outfit. When you do this all your clothes will go with each other. You will be able to buy less and wear more! You actually don’t need a lot of money or clothes to dress well. You just need to have a small amount of clothes in flattering colors and shapes for you.
