Variated Combination with Your Own Wardrobe

When we stand in front of our wardrobes and mirrors and decide what to wear, it requires a creative and keen eye to mix and match colors, fabrics, and shapes in a visually appealing way. That’s a good trick to have everything matching but it is complicated as it means you have to start from scratch or already have intuitively done so.Therefore, basics items to combine with the more “crazy” stuff you buy in order to never get stuck in not being able to wear something. Versatile items expand your styling possibilities, encourage minimalistic living and creativity, and generate multifaceted outfits with their flexible functionalities. They provide us with multiple ways to reap the benefits of fashion and explore all that it offers.

Simplify Your Mind

Have you ever heard of decision fatigue? It’s the theory that our brains can only handle making so many decisions every day, and as we make more throughout the day, the quality of our decision-making deteriorates. It’s why great minds like Mark Zuckerberg and the late Steve Jobs famously opted to wear a ‘uniform’ every day; taking the decision of what to wear off their to-do list, frees up their mental bandwidth to make the important decisions.

Has a Role in Sustainable Fashion

Each garment we wear may lead us to cycle through three or four outfits per day, often without realizing the significant environmental burden associated with this practice. The cumulative impact is substantial, encompassing not only the need to wash larger loads of dirty clothes, consuming precious water resources, but also less apparent consequences like the environmental toll of manufacturing, packaging, and transporting multiple outfits compared to a single versatile garment. So, we can take simple steps to achieve sustainable fashion by prioritizing versatile clothings!
