How to Maximize Your Wardrobe
Today I am going to show you all how to make the most out of your wardrobe. The key is to have a variety of both tops and bottoms, in divergent styles and colors (this trick works best when each shirt matches each pair of pants).
See above? There may only be 12 articles of clothing shown, but there's 36 potential outfits. For example:
a/g, a/h, a/i.... b/g, b/h, b/i... and so on and so forth.
But, the important thing to see is that say, you only have three pairs of pants. By eliminating only three articles, you cut your outfit potential in half (it's 18 now)!
So, if you do the math, if someone has 20 shirts and 20 pairs of pants (or skirts!), they have 400 potential outfits! That means they could wear a different outfit each day of the year, and well into the next year as well!
Although this is great, and I totally understand owning a ton of clothes (guilty!), remember there are people in the world who don't even have any clothes to wear. If you have extra clothes you don't wear often, clothes that don't fit you, or clothes you don't need, consider donating them to a charity that can distribute them to those in need. You'd be surprise at how a simple shirt or pair of pants can change someone's life!
