Fashion trends of the modern world are now reflected not stuffed to the eyeballs cases, and in drawing up your ideal wardrobe – this wardrobe, where things are easily combined, creating many different images. Brag about another brand shmotki now quite unfashionable in the modern world friends and relatives will be genuinely surprised and jealous of, the small closet with clothes, in which every thing is really worn and allows you to look at 100%.
The idea of such a wardrobe became the basis of Project 333: 33 things for 3 months. The project quickly became popular in the West and increasingly cluttered with fans in Russia. The author is an American Courtney Carver was asked to make a closet not on the principle of «buy what I like» and pick up things rationally, forming a necessary and sufficient minimum.
The basic principles of wardrobe 333
So, the Main idea of this project: for every season (i.e. every 3 months) to make a capsule wardrobe of 33 things. You think 33 items is quite a lot? Note that this figure includes everything: clothes, t-shirts and jeans, dresses and skirts, shoes, jewelry and even accessories – from scarves and Trouser belts, sunglasses and bags. Magic number 33 is a limit to the number of clothes and additional attributes for each season: less can and no more.
When you start to count how many similar t-shirts, blouses, platishke you have purchased each season, you will be surprised – they will be much more than 33. Now this figure seems too small? And how to survive in the modern world competing with each other women in modest clothing? Consider those nuances that is made on the basis of the 333 closet, allowing you to look stylish, and not to burden your home with piles of clothing that best fits a couple of times per season.
Two main tasks of the wardrobe 333: stop unnecessary clutter, rarely worn clothing, their homes and restore order in the closet.
In a list of 33 things for the season are not included (i.e. these are considered the «top» critical numbers):
sports clothes and sports shoes, for example working in a run must be more than one pair of sneakers (for asphalt, dirt road, trekking shoes, etc.), and therefore unlikely to meet the desired number. Besides sports shoes during exercise because of the wear can be purchased more than once in the season;
clothing for a beach holiday: flip flops, swimsuits, sarongs;
home textile and nightwear – pajamas, nightgowns, sleep sets for:
the ornaments with which people due to religious beliefs or social status does not leave – for example, crucifix, wedding ring, accessories.
This, of course, does not mean that if in the preparation of wardrobe 333 you save on skirts by buying one or two, need to buy ten instead of pajamas. Everything should be in moderation, even if this dear woman’s heart underwear.
Develop individual closet 333
All will continue to relate solely to the female wardrobe. Yes, ladies, because this is the beautiful half of humanity does not close the wardrobe, nothing to wear. Men heard anything about the 333 wardrobe, usually starts puzzled shrug and wonder: «33 things for three months?? Okay, I’m such a number of things and a year that’s enough.» Why? Because men usually buy what they really need, what they feel, what is practical to wear. Women position on clothing is quite different: often made spontaneous purchases simply any thing that in common closet joins with labor, but because it will be worn very rarely.
The author of the idea, American Courtney Cover, suggested experiment buy 33 things for 3 months back in 2010. She did not expect that the idea will sweep the world and become so popular. So, she invited the women of the world who want to look attractive, but it is not to spend money on a huge wardrobe:
1. To bring order in the available clothing: sort by season, to give to friends or the poor things are in good condition, not worn or just not sitting on the figure, to throw away spoiled and completely out of fashion.
Sorting things by season has its own peculiarities: there are things that are worn only in the season (most likely the top clothing, footwear, headgear) and clothes transit that goes from season to season and even year round can be worn – blouses, jeans, shirts, etc.
2. Counting the number of clothes in Each seasonal category (including the aforementioned transit things).
3. Getting rid of excess or re-buy the missing items for the wardrobe 333.
Closet 333 and force majeure
Things happen in life, and often have to act flexibly and according to circumstances. If torn pair of shoes mid-season, it is not necessary to show the iron resistance and suffer leaky shoes until the end of the season, not to exceed a specified number of 33. Came any useless thing can be replaced by another, but only one. Need to replace two? – replace the two, but do not let the wardrobe to swell, a Ratio of 1:1 in this case remains strictly.
A typical situation: they expected a hot summer, respectively, bought shorts and tops, but suddenly comes cold. Don’t suffer goosebumps and runny nose from heavy rains and Wade bones wind – replace one of the things your summer wardrobe on a jacket or warm cardigan. If these things are in a different season (and certainly they are there!), make them Transit – this will prevent unnecessary purchases will save money and will not allow under the pretext to cram in the wardrobe one more really few thing.
It should be fun and without fanaticism. If purchased for the wardrobe 333 for some reason the clothes did not fit, for example, uncomfortable to wear, narrow, badly combined with other things because for the most part hanging in the closet, it is allowed to replace it with another thing. And unnecessary costs to get rid of any acceptable to the owner way.
If the idea was interested in, and committed to a radical restructuring no
It’s possible to try the 333 wardrobe I want, but terrible/no money/it’s a pity the usual things. Try to start to do a small. Disassemble having things not only seasonal, but also On the frequency of wear into three categories:
worn regularly (at least two to three times a week),
worn from time to time (two to three times per month);
not worn at all – for example, the thing is obsolete, out of fashion, changed personal style, and it doesn’t fit.
All the above of course applies not only to clothing. Bags, scarves, jewelry and jewelry – will refrain from purchasing the fifteenth or twentieth bag earrings-studs. Believe me, life will seem happier and more harmonious, and the money saved can be spent on, for example, interesting, long-cherished plans to travel. As practice shows, in the part of jewelry for women and sometimes the excess – and the place is kind of a bit takes, and is inexpensive, if it’s about jewelry. Such acquisitions are easy to drop: quality products can be worn by years, it makes no sense to update their range every season.
