The Problem With Something Different

It’s so easy to get caught up in trends and colors when shopping, but what happens when you end up with pieces that aren’t exactly you?

You know that feeling when you look in your closet and everything looks the same to you? About a year and a half ago, I started to feel that way. Nothing felt new anymore. It started affecting the way I shopped; I started looking for things that didn’t resemble anything else I had in my closet. And for a while, it felt great. My wardrobe had color! And I had so many different options to wear! But the funniest thing happened. I never seemed to pull out those pieces, and I stuck with my old faithfuls. Over time, the new different pieces ended up being worn once and then they slowly got relegated to the far reaches of my closet, where they were forgotten about.

After a while of wearing the same few items on repeat, I started to get sick of them. And that’s when I realized that there was a problem with “something different”.  It’s not that different in necessarily bad, it’s just that purchasing something specifically BECAUSE it’s different is the problem.  The truth is that reason so many things in our closets look so similar is because we have a tendency to pick things we like and feel comfortable in. Going outside of that is often times a recipe for the famous saying: “a closet full of nothing to wear”.

I’m not saying you shouldn’t be adventurous. Wear something out of character if it makes you happy. But if your going to spend money on your clothing, spend smart and buy something that will actually get worn.
