Why you have nothing to wear when your wardrobe is bursting.

"I have nothing to wear," starring at the wardrobe bursting with clothes.

I believe this is what many ladies had encounter.

It will be understandable if the wardrobe consist of 3 dresses, 2 pants and 1 blouse.  But this is not the case since most Singaporeans loves shopping to death.

Ever wonder why nothing to wear when the wardrobe is bursting with clothes, even with brand new ones with price tags?

I am not a fashion expert or professional but this is what I find out by observing friends of all ages around me.....

Singapore Women's Deadly Fashion Habits -

* Only BLACK

I had seen countless office ladies who owns more than 10 pairs of BLACK COURT SHOES.  Each black court shoes have some difference such as one is plain; another pair has bows, one is suede, another pair is patent, one is 1 inch high and the other pair is 1.5 inches..... etc etc....  One can wear different pairs of shoes everyday for one whole good week but NOBODY notice, black shoes, will still be black shoes, they look the same especially to men, lolxx...

This "Black Court Shoes Theory" applies to "Safe Black Dresses Syndrome".

They have a full black crow wardrobe and they changes their outfit daily (of course).  But look as if they are wearing the same outfit at every day.  They look the same at wedding dinners and funerals, even at the beach; they looked all the same wearing the same thing in every photo :X

Some women are color shy to the extend where they are comfortable only when wearing black,  Most of them told me black has a slimming effect.  No doubt it's true but sometimes black strips away the natural softness and gentleness in women.

Lawyers wear black to portraits a stern and solemn image.
Can you imagine if they wear baby pink!  Waaahaahaaa.....

Most serving crews in restaurants/departmental stores are restricted to wear black cos' (partially) it's weird to look more elaborately dressed than customers.  So don't get pissed off when shoppers says to you "Hello, excuse me, can you please get this for me?"

Black wearers restrict themselves due to sense of security, lack of confident or some other reasons I don't know.   Though they may feel bored at times, it's difficult to break the black spell.  As a result, stares at ba ba black wardrobe but nothing to wear......


Black shoes wearers:
Try to buy a brown or grey pair of shoes.  You will be surprised how many people notice them!  Your money will be more well spend than buying another pair of black shoes where nobody even notice.

Black clothes wearers:
It's impossible to make sudden changes like wearing a bright pink or neon orange kind of color.

First play with details, Pocket Full of Posies Dress from INNER CIRCLE.
Still black, but the white checked trimmings are cute and feminine.

Next, try dark colors.  I am wearing Zalora's Basic Knit Cape Top Deep Green.
Not black, but the slimming effect is just as good right?  Try out other colors such as dark blue or dark grey which is easier to "adapt".

Keep black if you insist, but keep it as part of the outfit, Vera Sleeveless Short Dress from I-TYLIZT
Sapphire blue dress with black lace.

Give yourself a chance, it's not as if people will condemn you for wearing other colors.
Inject some colors into your wardrobe, you will be surprise how color clothings can lift up your mood.  You deserve more than black, trust me.


Most students falls into this category while some are working adults in non-office environment.  One claims it's the most comfortable kind of outfit they can wear.  They can't study or work properly wearing dresses or skirts.

One can own 30 pairs of shorts or jeans, but when a invitation calls for some dinner or a clubbing night out, stares at one heap of overly causal clothes but nothing to wear......


Shorts and jeans ARE NOT the only comfortable clothes in the world.  Looking ragged may be your style, but when an occasion calls for, dressing appropriately is courtesy and respect to the person who invited you.  But there's no need to drive yourself nuts in clothes that restricts your movements.

Palazzo Trousers from MANGO

Flare pants that looks like a long skirt from far.  This is decent enough for any important or formal event.
You can now cross your legs like a man but still looks like a lady, heehee....

Nowadays, shorts can be "disgust" as mini skirts.
Peplum Shorts from DIP DROPS

This looks great for causal gatherings or parties.  You are still wearing shorts, but more presentable, and definitely more sexy!

* Buys only office/working attire

Many ladies falls into this thread too.  They have no problem in what to wear for work, can even wear different outfits without repeating for 3 good months down the road.  Normal activities such as a zoo outing or a birthday chalet party can easily put them into deep trouble.  They don't have anything that falls under causal other than a few worn off t-shirts and shorts.  Stares at one whole wardrobe of pretty dresses and smart outfits but nothing to wear....


You can't be wearing a office dress to the zoo, neither can you wear your home clothes to a BBQ party.  Causal wear doesn't mean you have to be in shorts and t-shirts, you can be stylish and chic as what you normally are at work.  It's worth to invest a little on a few causal outfits which you can wear during weekends.  Weekends are so precious, wear something that makes you pretty and happy!

Genevieve Flora Romper Pink from LILYRAE.CO

Smocked Playsuit from Zalora.

Both are cool enough for outdoor activities and looks good on photos too!

The bottom line is, besides buying clothes that you wear daily, it's important to have a few pieces for different occasions and events.  They need not be expensive since you may not be wearing them as often.

All the above outfits recommended can be purchase online at Zalora.
