|my closet all-stars|
Having scripted and debugged my style twenty-twelve program, moral obligations compel me to release the vogue code for open source consumption. Feel free to copy, paste, and reformat the template for your personal wardrobing needs.
step one. identify your closet all stars
Following long, a dear friend is no more lost, a reunion looms in the next quarter-hour, which closet talent would you be most likely to summon? In other frames, imagine yourself European, where wearing the same smart frock days in succession did not an express a lack of options but rather brilliant wardrobing success. Which items would you queue for repeat? Identify five to ten items that quite unequivocally robe your external self with your internal essence.
Careful now, avoid flagging the purely nostalgic or aspirational. Those stone washed coveralls may have been your closet’s Michael Jordan, but 1992 has long since set. Go with items you’ve worn and relished in the last month.
step two. trend similarities
Are there categorical common threads running through the grouping? Carefully analyze colors, silhouettes, patterns, and fabric. Weave a usable language between the items. Wardrobes needs a shared culture and diction within which it may socialize. Yet be sure you’ve included complimentary as opposed to duplicative items. To construct a stylistic statement, you need metaphorical nouns, verbs, adjectives, and adverbs, not a colony of nearly identical blackish blouses.

step three. weed and scrutinize stumbles
What we are NOT also defines us. Which garments of clothing never leave the hanger? Repeat the same process with dresser duds. Abhorrence may not characterize your relationship, but something in their cloth or zippers inspires aversion. Catalog your culls to reveal your indubitable inclinations.
