I don’t want to think about what to wear.”</p> <p class=”body-el-text longform-body-el-text”>Since then, I’ve been fascinated by the idea of having a personal “uniform”—a go-to look worn day in and day out.

When, suddenly, my overflowing closet is full of clothes I can’t stand. When, paralyzed by the options and staring half-naked in front of my closet, I have found myself late to a meeting because…you guessed it…I feel like I have NOTHING to wear.</p> <h3 class=”article-sub-title body-el-subtitle longform-body-el-subtitle”>Enter: The Micro Wardrobe Challenge</h3> <p class=”body-el-text longform-body-el-text”>The Micro Wardrobe, or 10-Item Wardrobe, is a concept popularized by Jennifer L. Scott in her 2012 book <em data-redactor-tag=”em” data-verified=”redactor”><a class=”body-el-link longform-body-el-link” href=”https://www.amazon.com/Lessons-Madame-Chic-Stylish-Secrets/dp/1451699379″ data-tracking-id=”recirc-text-link”>Lessons From Madame Chic: 20 Stylish Lessons Secrets I Learned While Living in Paris</a></em>. “The idea is to get your wardrobe down to a capsule, manageable size,” she says in her <a class=”body-el-link longform-body-el-link” href=”https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=V3CLRL32Mcw” data-tracking-id=”recirc-text-link”>2014 TEDx Talk</a>. “When you put thought and organization into getting dressed, you can completely change your life. You hone in on your true style.”</p> <p class=”body-el-text longform-body-el-text”>Um, change your life? Yes, please. I decided to give Scott’s idea a shot. Not permanently—that seemed too scary—but for an abbreviated amount of time, sort of like a cleanse.</p> <hr class=”body-el-hr longform-body-el-hr”/><h3 class=”article-sub-title body-el-subtitle longform-body-el-subtitle”>The Rules</h3> <ol class=”body-el-ol longform-body-el-ol”><li>I’d choose a selection of items and wear only those for the next two weeks.</li> <li>I could mix and match them however I’d like, and wear them with whatever accessories or shoes I wanted.</li> <li>Seasonal necessities (like winter coats) and special-occasion wear (like a dress you’d wear to a wedding) wouldn’t count toward the core mix.</li> </ol><hr class=”body-el-hr longform-body-el-hr”/><h3 class=”article-sub-title body-el-subtitle longform-body-el-subtitle”>The Items</h3> <div class=”embedded-image embedded-image–CM longform-article-embedded-image–CM longform-article-body-el-image”> <div class=”embedded-image–inner”><img class=” swap-image zoomable pinterest-enabled” data-pin-description=”I Wore the Same Nine Items for Two Weeks – ELLE.com” data-pin-url=”http://www.elle.com/fashion/a42048/i-wore-the-same-nine-items-for-two-weeks/” data-pin-media=”http://ell.h-cdn.co/assets/17/02/1600×899/gallery-1484161165-9pieces2weeks.jpg” data-img320=”http://ell.h-cdn.co/assets/17/02/480×320/gallery-1484166310-9pieces2weeks-comp.jpg” data-img320-w=”480″ data-img320-h=”320″ data-cut=”320″ data-zoom=”http://ell.h-cdn.co/assets/17/02/1484166310-9pieces2weeks-comp.jpg” src=”http://ell.h-cdn.co/assets/elle/20170109190731/images/blank.png” data-src=”http://ell.h-cdn.co/assets/17/02/480×320/gallery-1484166310-9pieces2weeks-comp.jpg” alt=”” data-img480=”http://ell.h-cdn.co/assets/17/02/640×426/gallery-1484166310-9pieces2weeks-comp.jpg” data-img480-w=”640″ data-img480-h=”426″ data-img640=”http://ell.h-cdn.co/assets/17/02/768×512/gallery-1484166310-9pieces2weeks-comp.jpg” data-img640-w=”768″ data-img640-h=”512″ data-img768=”http://ell.h-cdn.co/assets/17/02/980×653/gallery-1484166310-9pieces2weeks-comp.jpg” data-img768-w=”980″ data-img768-h=”653″ data-img980=”http://ell.h-cdn.co/assets/17/02/768×512/gallery-1484166310-9pieces2weeks-comp.jpg” data-img980-w=”768″ data-img980-h=”512″ data-img1024=”http://ell.h-cdn.co/assets/17/02/980×653/gallery-1484166310-9pieces2weeks-comp.jpg” data-img1024-w=”980″ data-img1024-h=”653″ nopin=”nopin”/> </div> <div class=”image-copyright”><span class=”image-copyright–copyright”>Designed by Mia Feitel</span></div> </div> <p class=”body-el-text longform-body-el-text”>1.

How do you choose pieces that won’t get boring? It’s human nature to get tired of something after a while—that’s why fashion moves along at such a breakneck clip, why long-term monogamous relationships are so hard for so many people to sustain. So I turned to the experts.</p> <p class=”body-el-text longform-body-el-text”>Scott, in her TED Talk, recommends keeping it simple with “one pair of slacks, two pairs of jeans, three dresses, and four blouses,” while many of the “capsule wardrobe” articles I came across on the web suggested choosing classic items like white button-downs, tailored trousers, and a blazer. Standard wardrobe no-brainers, sure, but ones I rarely wear. I knew those wouldn’t be part of my Micro Wardrobe.</p> <p class=”body-el-text longform-body-el-text”>With Scott’s YouTube promise of “honing in on your true style” ringing in my ears, I decided to spend some time really analyzing the types of clothing I usually wear. I gravitate toward pieces that are directional but unfussy and versatile, and I like items I can wear to work and out at night. I like pieces that are easy to mix with other pieces but also interesting on their own. I rarely wear head-to-toe black or bright prints, and I don’t like clothing that is slouchy, sporty, or frilly. Peering into my closet, I noticed that turtlenecks, high-waisted pants, slim dresses, and above-the-knee skirts were the things I tended to reach for most.</p> <p class=”body-el-text longform-body-el-text”>It took me about a week, but I finally settled on a nine-piece mix I felt good about, a mix that was fresh but not unfamiliar: a black turtleneck; a striped turtleneck; a semi-sheer, metallic high-necked blouse; a navy cashmere sweater with bell sleeves; a pair of high-waisted medium wash jeans; a dark denim miniskirt; a cream, suplice-back blouse; a checked wool slip dress; and a mustard-colored pair of wide-legged cropped pants.</p> <hr class=”body-el-hr longform-body-el-hr”/><h3 class=”article-sub-title body-el-subtitle longform-body-el-subtitle”>The Outfits</h3> <hr class=”body-el-hr longform-body-el-hr”/><h3 class=”article-sub-title body-el-subtitle longform-body-el-subtitle”>The Result</h3> <p class=”body-el-text longform-body-el-text”>Total bliss. I loved every single outfit I ended up wearing for the two weeks, and I felt like a better version of myself the whole time. Getting dressed was super fast because I’d already thought about how each piece could go together, and surprisingly, having a limited number of pieces forced me to be more creative, not less. It felt like the ideal compromise between having a “uniform” and having enough clothing to be able to express myself. Heck, maybe I’d even found my true style.</p> <p class=”body-el-text longform-body-el-text”>A few key takeaways:</p> <p class=”body-el-text longform-body-el-text”>1. Forget about “wardrobe essentials.” Choose pieces you love that you’ll actually wear. At first I worried that my Core 10 had too many turtlenecks, but then I realized that I love wearing turtlenecks, so why not? Choosing what you love is part of honing in on your true style.</p> <p class=”body-el-text longform-body-el-text”>2. Color palette and styling are key. Choose colors that will go together, and don’t be afraid to tuck things in, roll the sleeves up, and layer. On a whim I decided to try wearing the ivory blouse backwards over the black turtleneck and it ended up being one of my favorite looks. I don’t think anyone knew the blouse wasn’t “supposed” to be worn that way.</p> <p class=”body-el-text longform-body-el-text”>3. Accessories are everything. I never fully appreciated how much accessories or shoes can change a look until I did this challenge.</p> <h3 class=”article-sub-title body-el-subtitle longform-body-el-subtitle”>Would I Do It Again?</h3> <p class=”body-el-text longform-body-el-text”>After the two weeks, I didn’t continue to wear only those nine items, but I have been much more focused in my clothing decisions: Most of the outfits I wear now are been variations of the ones I put together during the challenge, and I think twice before buying anything that wouldn’t go with my core items.</p> <p class=”body-el-text longform-body-el-text”>Best of all, I haven’t even come close to having a what-to-wear panic.</p> </div> <div class=”recirc-end-of-content” data-tracking-id=”recirc-end-of-content” data-tracking-label=”More from ELLE”> <div class=”module-story–header”>More from ELLE:</div> </div> </div> </div> <p><strong><a href=”https://blockads.fivefilters.org”></a></strong> <a href=”https://blockads.fivefilters.org/acceptable.html”>(Why?)</a></p> Wed, 11 Jan 2017 21:03:00 +0000 article http://www.elle.com/fashion/a42048/i-wore-the-same-nine-items-for-two-weeks/ http://ell.h-cdn.co/assets/17/02/1600×800/landscape-1484161165-9pieces2weeks.jpg I Wore the Same Nine Items for Two Weeks Christina Perez takes the micro-wardrobe challenge. en text/html http://www.elle.com/fashion/a42048/i-wore-the-same-nine-items-for-two-weeks/ Fashion
