Jeans, second hand. T-shirt and shirt, Filippa K. Knitted sweater, Wood Wood.
I read an article the other day about how much time we spend on getting dressed in the morning. Not only do we waste time doing this, it also causes stress and takes up a lot of your brain activity.
I don’t know if you recognize yourself in this, but I most certainly do. I often wish that I had a school uniform to wear for work. I’ve never been the type of person who can pick out an outfit the night before—I always end up changing it in the morning anyway. I hate that this is an issue for me, and it makes me feel superficial and vain.
In another article I read that successful and intelligent people wear the same outfit everyday, just to save time and headspace (I’m guessing they keep doublets…?). So I spent some time looking through my own wardrobe, just to try and figure out what garments would work for an outfit that I could wear every day for the rest of this year.
The first question I asked myself was: “What color doesn’t show stains too much and is less likely for me to get sick of?” My answer: black or navy. The next question was: “Jeans or slacks?” Well, jeans would be more practical, for sure, but slacks would give a better impression in for example important meetings. Since I’d say I’m more practical than stylish, I decided on jeans—black ones.
To dress up the jeans I first decided on a white oxford shirt, but then realized I would feel a bit stiff only wearing a shirt, so I ended up putting a black t-shirt underneath. And since I’m living in the cold North, I have to bring a knitted sweater pretty anywhere I go. This timeless cashmere crew neck would be perfect for this.
So, this outfit really is three looks in one, and with different accessories I’d say the amount of looks I could achieve are endless.
What outfit would you pick to wear for the rest of the year?
