Getting dressed isn’t rocket science.
But you wish it were, because rocket science seems easier than knowing which pants match which shirt, and which shoes to wear for which occasion. And what to buy and where to even shop in the first place!
It would be nice to be judged on your character rather than your clothing, but unfortunately, your appearance is all people have to go off until they get to know you. And they’re more likely to want to get to know you if you look competent at dressing yourself, because that hints you may be competent at other things too.
Dressing in a way that represents your best self doesn’t have to be complicated, expensive, or stressful. It’s really about cutting through all the stuff that doesn’t work for you to find what does. And once you’ve figured that out, it’s easy.
