You Are What You Wear
At swiish, when one of us blurts out ‘I have nothing to wear’, we all know that means ‘I have a closet full of clothes at home and some things still have tags’. So why is it that we have so many different options, yet we can’t seem to pick an outfit? The answer this lies in this insightful, fun and interesting read.
Author Jennifer J. Baumgartner psychologically examines closets and reveals that what we wear says a lot about what we are thinking and feeling, revealing more of our internal life than we may realise.
The book goes through your wardrobe and contains a ‘What’s in Your Closet Challenge’ which helps you evaluate your past fashion and shopping choices, what you currently own and what you hope for in the future. You’re then given a detailed analysis, together with potential solutions for any issues.
Baumgartner’s overall goal is to shrink your closet down to the core of who you are as a person and how you want to be perceived.
