After Decades of "Having Nothing to Wear," I Fixed the Problem

The whole "I have nothing to wear" predicament is something we talk about a lot on Who What Wear. (This story about the science behind it is particularly interesting.) This is my personal experience with the dilemma, which I'm sharing in hopes that it could potentially solve your wardrobe problem, too. (After all, isn't that why you're reading this?)

Over the years, I've dramatically declared that I have nothing to wear countless times (despite a full closet of options at my disposal). And that's for one reason: I had somehow ended up with a closet full of T-shirts and sweaters, jeans, blazers, flats, and black handbags—they're what I feel most comfortable wearing. (That's me above, wearing some of those go-to pieces.) Sure, these pieces are timeless and versatile, but they basically combined to form one type of outfit that isn't appropriate for every situation.

Accordingly, over the past few years, I've made a point to shop for pieces that would help me form a wider variety of outfits. I wear jeans more than anything else, so I focused on adding dressier tops and heels to my wardrobe, and I've recently been making even more of an effort to diversify my wardrobe by shopping for more dresses, skirts, and trousers. Thinking that my solution may be the cure to your wardrobe woes too? Read on to shop "fancy" tops and heels that I'm loving at the moment.
