How maths saved my style!!!

Have you ever wondered how many combinations you can have out of your clothes?  Do you read like crazy the pages on Lucky that picture a few clothes +accessories+shoes+bags and then show you how to make different outfits for every day of the month?
Then you have a very good idea of how maths can help with your Wardrobe. You still don't see how they relate? Let me give you an example.
If you have 10 tops (of all sorts) and 10 bottoms (skirts,pants....) and you mix each one of them with all the others  you score 100 outfits in no time! Then you can show up in the office wearing a different outfit every day for at least 3 months.
On top of that , if you add belts , shoes , scarves , bags , you name it or the occassional new entry you double the number. Now ,you get the picture and you possibly begin to understand why men never get it  when we stand in front of the wardrobe complaining we have nothing to wear. It's bacause we are no good in Maths.

If not convinced yet go check your wardrobe and start adding!You can thank me later.

  1. "It's bacause we are no good in Maths." too much! point is so true. i think we get in trouble when we don't focus and get a bunch of pieces with no 'connections'. when i started to get REALLY STRICT and buy only clothes in two, coordinating colors then everything went with everything else and suddenly my math improved dramatically!

    it's am important wardrobe comment and you explain it so well! steph
