Agreed. There’s nothing worse than being dissatisfied with your closet, right? Especially with the holidays coming closer to our sightline. Sure, your overarching issue may be that you feel uninspired and have nothing to wear in general. But more often than not, the root of the problem isn’t that there’s nothing in your closet, but that those recent purchases weren’t smart buys in the first place. That’s why shopping pros rely on the 3-7-14 rule.
As “Glamour Magazine” initially pointed out after sitting down with costume designer Jenn Rogien (of “Girls” and “Orange Is the New Black” fame), this trick ensures that you never buy something you won’t actually wear.
Rogien tells the ‘Scoop how it works: “If you buy something and you haven’t worn it in three days, it’s unlikely you’re going to wear it. If you weren’t that excited to wear it the next day, you weren’t that excited to wear it to begin with,” Rogien explained. “If you haven’t worn it in seven days, you’re definitely not going to wear it, so make sure you return it in fourteen. Get it out of your life within 14 days or you’re never going to return it.”
It’s fascinating, but it totally makes sense. If you don’t feel excited to wear an item you just purchased, it’s probably not going to make you feel excited when you open your closet a few days later.
Interesting? Definitely take this rule into consideration the next time you go shopping.
