Wardrobe Architect #3: Exploring Shape


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!

  1. Your posts were the final push for me to start into the Wardrobe Architect project, though I’m not sure I entered into it in the right spirit because I kind of binged on all the posts and worksheets! Comfort is a leading factor for me too – I love pretty clothes but if I can’t walk, sit and eat comfortably in it, then it’s not working out.


    1. Yay! I’ve been binging on it in stages – I just take a bit longer to write about it 🙂

      Being able to eat all of the things is very important for me when choosing an outfit.
