This week’s task was quite simple and involved ranking different styles of clothing by how much you like wearing them. I tried to go with my gut instinct for this, and there were no shocking revelations.
I think I have a fairly good idea of the styles that don’t suit me (loose, dropped waists), so this wasn’t a huge challenge. There are some styles which I’m curious to try, and they generally got scored between 5 and 7.
I suppose one thing this made me think about was how important comfort is to me. I don’t want to have to think about what underwear to wear with an outfit, so spaghetti straps and strapless tops aren’t really interesting to me. As I’ve mentioned before, I really hate 3/4 length and above-elbow sleeves. They don’t keep me warm and they’re hard to put a cardie on top of. I am slowly culling the tops I own with this sleeve length from my wardrobe, and replacing them with short or long sleeves.
I’m enjoying this programme – it’s broken down into manageable chunks which forces you to think about the reasons behind your style. I am looking forward to finishing it though, because I’m impatient to get on with life in my more defined style!
