How many times have you walked into your closet, only to find yourself stressed out because “you have nothing to wear”?
The irony is that you do have something to wear, you just have way too many options, and your brain can’t keep up with all the clutter.
Hence, decision fatigue is the number one reason why so many people are embracing a minimalist wardrobe.
In layman’s terms, a minimalist wardrobe is a small collection of simple fashion with a goal of making as few decisions as possible when getting dressed.
It’s full of essential-only pieces, has a neutral color palette, and more importantly, it’s easy to mix and match.
In fact, some of the most successful people endorse a minimalist wardrobe. The late Steve Jobs, Mark Zuckerberg, and Charles Branson are a small example of individuals with a signature minimalist style that just works.
Some people affectionately call their minimalist wardrobe their "uniform." Think of people in the military that wake up and know exactly what they are going to start and finish the day wearing. The "uniform" keeps you comfortable (both mentally and physically) while establishing and reinforcing your personal identity.
Start by doing an assessment of your current wardrobe; take everything out and make 3 piles: one for trash, one for donating, and one to keep. Thrift stores won’t take everything, so anything with mystery stains, holes, and rips, just throw out.
Next, put back only the essentials that you wear all the time: your favorite pair of jeans, basic t-shirts, button-down shirts, blazers, jackets, etc. Do not keep anything that you haven’t worn in over a year, and definitely donate that Ed Hardy rhinestone t-shirt that you purchased when you had your mid-life crisis.
Moving forward, your future apparel purchases (including socks and underwear) should consist of sustainable fashion brands that make their clothing from eco-friendly fabric like organic cotton, hemp, and bamboo viscose—brands like Big Boy Bamboo who make timeless basic tees that are perfect for a minimalist closet.
Big Boy Bamboo is a manufacturer of eco-friendly bamboo t-shirts in sizes 3XL-8XL & 1XLT-4XLT. Big Boy Bamboo's model Andy is wearing a bamboo t-shirt in size 2XLT.
Remember, you’re striving for simple, and sustainable fashion is as simple as it gets. It’s also a good way to reduce your carbon footprint and do something good for the planet.
After all, bamboo doesn’t require pesticides and regrows at an extremely fast pace. Hence, you get eco-friendly clothing that’s hypoallergenic and feels like breathable, silky-soft fabric.
So, if you’re ready to transform that chaotic mess of a closet that you currently face on a daily basis, follow these steps for a successful transition, and don’t forget to add a few bamboo viscose t-shirts to complete your awesome new minimalist wardrobe!
