Uncover the secrets of a sustainable wardrobe
The 21st century is the age of high speed. Often we hear from our friends – “I wouldn’t hurt the 25th hour in a day”. And more is possible. And what is there from friends, each of us is like a squirrel in a wheel. There is not enough time for absolutely everyone …
And it seems that we have a lot of helpers in everyday life: various smart equipment frees up a lot of time for us. Why isn’t it enough?
Stop, stop, stop. There is no point in getting discouraged. A reasonable, rational wardrobe will help to save a little more time and once and for all will solve the issue with a suitable way in clothes for every day “for a feast and for the world” as they say. Stylist Valentina Konchakova will tell us about it.
The word rationality comes from the Latin ratio – reason. Therefore, a rational wardrobe is a reasonable wardrobe that works and helps its owner always look 100%, and at the same time not get out of his usual rhythm of life.
In a rational wardrobe, everything is simple:
- 60% – basic wardrobe;
- 35% – capsule wardrobe;
- 5% trends (fashion items).
Basic things should take up most of your wardrobe, they are the frame. As a rule, these are things of a simple cut. Thanks to this, they can be easily combined with other wardrobe items.
The color scheme of basic things can be any that suits the lifestyle of its owner. But most often these are colors with a lot of achromat (black, white, gray). Thanks to this, they can be easily combined with other colors.
A mandatory requirement for a basic wardrobe is good quality. After all, we wear these things for a long time and often.
The capsule wardrobe takes up about 35% of all things. Most often these are 10-15 things that are combined with each other, and are intended for a specific area of life or life situation (for work in the office, for playing sports, walking, vacation, etc.)
In a capsule wardrobe, there should be more “tops” than “bottoms”, and things are as varied as possible.
Well, a very small% of your wardrobe is devoted to trendy (fashionable) things. Why are there less trendy things (do not confuse them with topical ones) than basic ones ?! Yes, it’s simple. Trending things, as a rule, are in fashion for only a couple of seasons, and then they become irrelevant and from them you can tell which year it was fashionable. Therefore, we dilute our wardrobe with a few trendy items. And you can’t do without them! They add modernity to your wardrobe.
Knowing the rules of a rational wardrobe, you will always have something to wear and you can be different. By the occasion, by the figure and by the mood.
And remember, clothes should be comfortable, comfortable and cool, first of all, to yourself.
