In a time where the economy is weak and people continue to look for ways to simplify their life, it’s not surprising that “shopping diets” are springing up all over. Last month the NY Times did a story about these “diets” and featured one woman who went 31 days with only wearing six items from her closet (excluding accessories, shoes and underwear). The crazy thing is, people didn’t notice – not even her husband!
Sites like Six Items or Less and The Great American Apparel Diet (which asks you to go shopping free for a year!) are dedicated to similar challenges. Which prompted us to ask, could you go a full year without shopping? And, if you could only wear six items in your closet for a month, what would they be? Here are six of our choices:
Black Pants like this shown in this Calvin Klein Suit
Black Blazer like this shown in this Calvin Klein Suit
Crisp Button Down Shirt (preferably white or a bright color) like this Classic Button Down white shirt from The Limited
Dark Wash Jeans like these Trouser Cut jeans by Banana Republic
Black Dress like this Tahari Seamed Ponte Knit Sheath dress
Good t-shirt (preferably white or a bright color) like this Yellow Jersey T-shirt from the Gap
