I’ve spent the last two days photographing every piece of clothing I own.
One of my goals for 2017 is to make better use of my clothes so that I don’t keep buying new ones. 2016 saw a complete overhaul of my closet – which wasn’t entirely unwarranted, since the summers are so humid here – but now I need to break the shopping habit.
To help me visualize the clothes and outfits that I have, I’m using the StyleBook app. Stylebook stores a photo inventory of your closet and different outfit combinations that you put together.
Here’s what one of my outfits looks like:
Ideally, I’ll see different combinations that I didn’t notice before and get more use out of what I own. The outfit above is something I’ve never worn; I never thought to combine those items before Stylebook.
Stylebook tells you:
- How many items of clothing you have (mine came out to 86)
- The clothes you wear most
- The clothes you wear least
- The cost per wear (assuming you entered in the cost you paid)
- The colors you wear most
There’s a calendar that creates a visual grid of the outfit you wore each day, so that you don’t keep wearing the same outfit over and over (something I’m prone to do, especially on the weekend).
