Getting dressed for work is a nearly universal challenge.
An attempt to simplify dressing is by uniform dressing. It eliminates the element of choice and saves the wearer the problem of figuring out what to wear every morning. But the logical end of optimisation in fashion is one where personal style ceases to exist.
While tech's obsession with efficiency is tied to joyless innovations, it isn't stopping them from trying to automate the messy art of self-expression.
Data shows that algorithms take away individualism. Cities have become filled with ads for millennial lifestyle startups, all virtually the same. It looks nice and perfect when viewed through a screen. The sameness also makes one want to push back by way of a personal style that goes beyond data points Facebook has collected about you.
The first step is to identify the pieces you're missing. It's like cooking. One starts by learning the classic recipes before you start to innovate. Start by building a foundation wardrobe of timeless, versatile pieces and neutral colours.
The basics will look different for everyone depending on personal preferences or profession. A second opinion can also help you break bad habits. If you're used to wearing your shirts too big, someone can help you try something new to help you see yourself in a new light.
The average American buys 65 new pieces of clothing per year yet is less satisfied with every subsequent purchase. We sometimes think we have all these pieces, but when you really look, you'll find there's a hole or a button that doesn't work for you.
A closet cleanout:
Find outfit ideas on apps like Pinterest, Instagram, YouTube, and Reddit. Browse through magazines and books. Note what stylish friends, coworkers, and strangers are wearing.
When you find something you like, ask:
You don't have to resign yourself to a mundane wardrobe. If you work in an office, boring office clothes may allow you to look professional, but not special. It is recommended to slightly overdress rather than underdress.
Discover what you're naturally drawn to and nurture that interest. It doesn't have to be trendy. It is a style that feels uniquely "you."

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!
Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.
Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.
I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!
Even five minutes a day will improve your thinking. I've come across new ideas and learnt to improve existing ways to become more motivated, confident and happier.
