Here, we present our easy step-by-step guide to simplify your wardrobe. We will be rolling out the Fit Kit chapters every few weeks during 2017.
I. What is a 'Fit Kit'?
Chapter One: What is a 'FIT KIT'?
First, we must explain the British term 'kit':
A set of things, such as tools or clothes, used for a particular purpose or activity.
We've titled our version FIT KIT to encompass how your entire wardrobe should properly come together and fit; how it fits you, your lifestyle, budget, and physical space.
The FIT KIT philosophy:
It is not the size of the wardrobe, it is the effectiveness of the wardrobe. Our belief is in clothes that fit, are functional and remain stylish throughout the life of the garment.
FIT KIT is not:
IS NOT a random bunch of clothes from which you can hardly ever put together a good look.
IS NOT as expensive as clothes that do not fit.
IS NOT visual clutter. No more staring into your closet and not seeing anything to wear.
FIT KIT is:
IS a wardrobe that is compact (no big closet needed – store wine where you used to store clothes).
IS a collection of a few essential items of clothing that will not go out of fashion. They are timeless.
IS time saving, both in shopping for and maintaining.
IS versatile. Most items can be coordinated with others.
IS simple, yet not boring. Style up with accessories, or what we call 'spice.'
