Always feel you have nothing to wear? The reason might surprise you.

January 29, 2015

We all have those days when we stare into a wardrobe brimming with clothes, yet sigh to ourselves saying "I have NOTHING to wear". I have said those dreaded words way too many times than i can remember. The struggle is real. 

Turns out, there is actually a very simple thumb of rule to it and one I wish I knew a thousand sighs earlier.

Designer, Micheal Kors (Bless him!) has explained the reason in the these words 

"70 percent of the clothes you own should be meat and potatoes. 30 percent should be icing and fluff—that's color, pattern, shine, and accessories. Too many women get the proportions the other way round, then can't figure out why they can't get dressed."

By meat and potatoes, he means the classic, wardrobe staples like a crisp white shirt, everyday blue jeans, a camel colored pea/trench coat, a black blazer, a neutral colored sweater, black/nude pumps/flats, a structured bag, classic LBD, basic tshirts, solid coloured tops, etc.

By icing and fluff, he means a statement jewelley, sequinned/embellished dress, printed top, neon bag, a statement "street style star-esque" coat or poncho, bold and edgy shoes, a hat/fascinator etc. 

There you go. It's that simple, yet something we've overlooked all along. Take in peek in your closet and figure out your meat and potatoes to icing and fluff ratio.

I would love to hear from you in the comments section.
