What To Wear When You Have Nothing To Wear

How many times do you have three minutes to put something on and you can’t think straight, so you grab the same thing you wore yesterday or the same thing you wear on most days? You have tons of clothes, and this is all you could come up with? This will never happen again if you have a cool outfit on deck.  I have a part of my closet that I call the staging area. When I create a new outfit idea, I put it all together with the accessories and shoes and bag, and I hang it in the staging area. That outfit is now officially on deck.

When I’m in a hurry and I need to look put together, I just grab what’s on deck. When I find something I should be wearing, like a purse or a pair of sunglasses, I’ll work it into an outfit to go on deck. If you really want to get serious about this, create different on-deck outfits for work, dates, special occasions, hot sexy nights out, and running around during the day. You can do this in your spare time, or do it when you’re stressed or bored to make yourself feel better. It’s fun and can help get your mind off your troubles.
