The other 20%
There’s about 20% of space left in your wardrobe for trendy (impulse) buys. This is enough to add some trendy items to your basic wardrobe every season, without losing touch of your personal style. When only 20% of your wardrobe and attention is spent on keeping up with trends, this allows you to automatically develop a personal dress style. The result? Less of what you think you’re supposed to wear and more of what you actually love wearing. Even when shopping for ‘fun’ items, our advice is to choose quality over quantity.
