I’ve come across many people who do not actually wear the wonderful clothes and accessories that they have in their closet. For many reasons, they think it best to “leave them for later”. Clothes are there for you to wear and enjoy as soon and as frequently as possible. They are useless when left to decorate the inside of your closet waiting for the so called best occasion.

By all means, save that recently purchased cocktail dress for a party, or a new winter coat for when it’s cold. But everyday clothes for work and play should not be saved. Before you know it, the items you’ve bought will either be dated, or they won’t be right for you (or the weather). You might find yourself passing on your purchases before you’ve even worn them once.

So rip off those tags and start breaking in those new items. It makes sense to maximize your return on investment.
