How To Do Clustering Of Your Clothes And Create An Amazing Wardrobe?

How To Do Clustering Of Your Clothes

Rita and Jane were discussing and chitchatting about their shopping habits. While Rita picked up clothes carefully and properly as per need, Jane was a spendthrift. Jane had the habit of swiping her debit and credit cards almost for all purchases. She never missed a sale, a stock clearance sale, or any discount offers at any shop. Her room had become a mini boutique comprising of new shoes, clothes and accessories which she used only one once.

Rita was amused with her shopaholic friend, Jane. Rita always had her senses on while shopping. She would decide beforehand what is to be shopped and buy accordingly. She was not attracted to the discounts and stock clearances sale like Jane. At the end of their shopping trips, Rita had only one or two bags in hand while Jane would have emptied half of her bank balance for all her shopping things.

But that Jane had a different problem. She was complaining about her shopping issue seriously for the first time in life to Rita.

“I am almost in debt due to my shopping addiction. My credit card bills have become overdue. Now, as I don’t have enough bank balance in my account and so, I cannot pay my essential bills and rent. My room is full of unwanted clothes and accessories which I don’t need now and in the future. When there is an occasion, I don’t feel like wearing any of those clothes and feel the need of buying another. Rita, how can you manage to survive on few clothes and still look confident and stylish?”

Rita giggled and answered patiently, “Jane, we don’t need the entire apparel collection of our favourite brand to look great. We need to apply some part of our brains and choose clothes carefully and style them in the best possible manner. In this way, we can save our time, space and money and manage to look stylish. We do not have to indulge in impulsive buying and end up emptying our bank account balance and funds.”

“Really? Is there any magic or mantra for shopping too?” Jane asked in disbelief.

“Yes. There is one. You must be aware of the mix-match method of clothes.”

“Yes. But that is used mostly by average stylish clothes who are lazy enough to look good.” Jane frowned.

“Well, we don’t have to use the same technique. We would be applying another technique known as clustering of clothes.”
