Analyze Your Closet Style
If our eyes are the windows into our soul, then our closet is the window into our personal style and how we see and express ourselves through clothing, shoes and accessories.
Pretty deep eh? Don’t worry, I’m not about to overanalyze your mental state or self-perception based on your clothing choices. I’ll save that for a night out with my girlfriends after we’ve polished off two bottles of wine.
I recently took a few online closet styles/wardrobe quizzes as one does when procrastinating at life obligations, but still wanting to be semi-productive. The verdict? I’m a “Clothing Economist” with “skimpy storage.” Both are true.
Now the good part is that I don’t live in “closet chaos” — or worse than that — have a “condemned closet,” but I do feel like my current storage doesn’t do justice to the items I want to have on display. It certainly does not offer me the function and fantasy I believe most people (don’t be shy guys!) would love to have in their closet, but don’t believe they can achieve.
“Dream closets aren’t reserved for the rich and famous anymore. We believe with some creative use of space and customized storage and cabinetry that dream can truly become a reality,” explains Kael Irvine of True Lifestile in Saskatoon.
As a “Clothing Economist” I’m considered a reserved shopper (somewhere my mother just rolled her eyes and I felt it) which I believe to be true. I only shop when I’m on a mission to find something and I make conscious clothing investments (a.k.a. fast fashion doesn’t apply to my wardrobe).
I mean, do I sometimes indulge when I see a pair of suede Brian Atwood pumps staring at me from the window of Holt Renfrew in downtown Toronto, knowing I can only wear them for maybe four months out of the year? You know… once or twice in a blue moon. So I can make skimpy storage work, but why should I if I don’t have to?
For those of you who are the “Capsule Connoisseur” or the “Conscientious Collector,” a closet is an essential area to house and covet all those fabulous fashion finds in an organized, easy-to-find and easy-to- see manner. That is when you truly need to invest in having the “closet couture” — efficient space, proper storage and lighting that makes you want to dive into your closet every morning excited to choose your armour for the day! You deserve that dream closet. In fact, we all do.
Isn’t it also just so much easier to add to your wardrobe or do a mild clothing purge when you know what you actually have? For the “Capsule Connoisseurs” or “Conscientious Collectors,” organizing and housing your favourite threads and accessories will likely ignite the creative juices in designing your space to match your clothing (and personality). As for us “Clothing Economists,” we’re right behind you with our minimalist blue prints.
