What Would Your Uniform Be?

One of the benefits of using a personal stylist is the amount of time you save getting dressed each and every day, not just for special occasions or date night. I tell my clients that they’ll be able to get dressed in two minutes or less once they have gone through the entire styling process with me. My clients and I are able to acheive this fashion freedom by narrowing down the outfit choices to only include complete looks that work for them.  Doing so simplifies the process and provides the client confidence as they select what they’ll wear for the day.

Now imagine how long it would take to get dressed if you only had one choice. Thirty seconds or less, perhaps? There are individuals who have decided that they won’t waste time or energy on deciding what to wear every day, instead they just wear the same thing every day. Most of these individuals are some of the most creative in our society: fashion designers.

What might surprise you is what these designers adopt for their daily attire. For instance, Giorgio Armani makes incredible suiting but sticks to tee shirts. Of course, if you are a high end shopper, you know that Armani also makes incredible tee shirts if you are willing to spend $500 per.

Other designers’ regular garb epitomizes their style a bit more. Alexander Wang sports all black. Tom Ford rocks crisp, white button-downs and sharp but luxurious sport coats.

Things get a bit more confounding when you learn that Marc Jacobs’ uniform consists of a kilt, a button down shirt and a blazer. I won’t even try to describe the ingredients that make up Karl Lagerfeld’s uniform. I’ll just show you the picture.

Of course one of the people most famous for his uniform was an architect of our lives, not our wardrobes.
