In March, we introduced a five day challenge on social media. Aimed at helping you to break the boredom of wearing the same clothes on repeat: something which kept coming up in discussions!
Nothing too difficult or complicated, just a little motivation to get you wearing different things.
Some people took part by sharing their posts on social media and in our private VIP Facebook group. Others chose to take part behind the scenes but the messages received were so uplifting and joyful, it was a pleasure to be able to help.
We thought we would share the details here in case you missed out so that you can take part yourself. Feel free to tag us in any posts on social media and use the hashtag: #5daychallengetlc too.
Day 1 – wear a different colour
Simply take a look inside your wardrobe and pick out something to wear in a different colour than you’d normally wear. Any colour you want in any garment you like! Simple. Colour helps to boost your mood too.
Day 2 – add an accessory to your outfit today
Today why don’t you try adding an accessory to your outfit.
It could be a anything. A hat, scarf, gloves, brooch, tie, hair accessory, a belt or some jewellery! Just try to add something different to mix things up a little.
Day 3 – wear something you haven’t worn for a while
It could be something smarter, something old or something you bought new and haven’t had chance to wear it just yet.
Just pick out one thing from your wardrobe that you haven’t worn in a long time.
Day 4 – take something out that you don’t wear or doesn’t fit
Today is about going into your wardrobe or your drawers and actually removing something that either doesn’t fit you anymore (and so you’re not likely to wear it any time soon) or that maybe you’ve just fallen out of love with.
When you remove things you’re not likely to wear, you’re actually clearing clutter which helps you identify garments that you can and will wear! If you can bring yourself to remove something, do. Pop it in a bag or a box ready to gift, give to charity or sell on.
Day 5 – pick out something that needs repairing
This could be a missing button, a fallen hem, loose stitching etc. Something that has likely stopped you wearing the garment. It’s a common reason that things remain unworn.
Then, we want you to repair it! You don’t need to be a seamstress and nobody will be inspecting your repair but when you repair it, you’re more likely to wear it again.
So when you repair it later today, you can leave it out tonight and wear it tomorrow ☺️
We hope you enjoy the challenge! Why not join us at our next workshop when we’ll help you feel confident in what to wear. Click here for full details.
