I was reading an article about a young woman who let her husband choose her outfits every day for an entire week. My first thought was “eek!” I don’t know if I would have that kind of courage, especially not to go to work in. But the results weren’t horrible.
How does your significant other see you
Sometimes we have a certain vision of ourselves. This doesn’t have to be a bad thing, but it can mean that we’re limiting ourselves. This was clear after I saw some of the outfits the husband in the article picked out. The woman had a certain style and had some clothes she didn’t wear (often), but the husband made some cute combinations. He picked out what he thought would look good on her and he was right: she looked amazing.
Some negative comments
After reading the article and looking at the pictures, I read some of the comments. There were some negative comments that I didn’t agree with. Some people wrote that if a non-attractive person had experimented like this, the post would get a lot less attention. This might be correct, because people are often shallow. Yet, I think more people should try experiments like this. Why? Because it doesn’t just teach you more about your partner, it also teaches you more about yourself. Maybe you think you look like a child in bright colors, but when you actually try it, you might look great.
No partner, no problem
If you don’t have a significant other in your life to try out this experiment, there is no need to worry. You can do the experiment with anyone you trust, such as a best friend, a brother or sister or maybe even with your parents. Be careful though that no one tries to prank you. If you don’t trust anyone with your wardrobe, it doesn’t have to be a problem either. You can just try it with yourself.
Take all of the clothes that you almost never wear or that you’re saving for a special occasion. See which combinations match and create a complete new wardrobe. You could even surprise yourself…
