No, success is not guaranteed after reading this material. Yes, it is possible to achieve success even without it. No, it doesn’t impact your talent, your capacity or, still less, your diligence. We’d just like to demonstrate a new rational approach towards a widespread recurring phenomenon in a young person’s life.
As we know, appearing several times, in a row, in one and the same image is considered to be “in bad taste”. There should be variety, and that’s it. Every day, students, pupils and employees think about what to wear and how to make their present image different from yesterday’s. They are combining, selecting, and stressing about their choice. Sometimes, it can grow into huge complexes because one has “nothing to wear”. In short, read this and make a note of it.
A man in suit looks very successful … until you discover that he works for a man wearing tennis shirt and jeans.
One who immediately comes to mind is Mark Zuckerberg in his invariable grey T-shirt and jeans. No less popular is the image of Steve Jobs: a black turtleneck sweater, jeans and sneakers.

CHOOSING THE SAME CLOTHES EVERY DAY IS DUE TO SEVERAL REASONS:
- IT SAVES TIME
One doesn’t need to waste a lot of time in front of the wardrobe if all their clothes are identical or basic as each harmoniously suit each other. This combination is thought out in advance.
- FEWER DECISIONS
It offers one fewer decision every day and, therefore, more time to think seriously about issues.
You’ll see that I wear only gray or blue suits. I am trying to cut down on decisions. I don’t want to make decisions about what I’m eating or wearing because I have too many other decisions to make. – Barack Obama
- LESS STRESS
Incorrectly selecting clothes may cause discomfort which, in turn, often causes an unproductive day.
- FEWER EXPENSES
Why spend money on piles of clothes when there are plenty of better ways to invest it?
- NOT BY QUANTITY BUT BY QUALITY
In every wardrobe, there are clothes which are still waiting for their “show time.” If these fancy choices have been misplaced in your clothes, you can be sure that their time will not be coming. Get rid of these clothes. They are distracting you every morning and occupy extra space.
- CULT STATUS
It illustrates your stability, maturity and permanent values.
Dress for the job you want, not the job you have. – Donald Trump
This phrase is known practically by everyone, but it is not interpreted correctly. Someone gets disappointed, supposing that they should be wearing clothes from among the famous world brands. Others consider it a challenge and buy plenty of clothes, trying to change their image every day and to represent their financial capacity. In reality, this expression by Donald Trump only confirms everything said above.
No one has prohibited basic clothes and the temperament colored business styles. No one makes you wear one set of clothes from day to day. The image of successful people is made of details which can both spoil or demonstrate a person’s status. However, you are neither Steve Jobs nor Mark Zuckerberg, yet. So you can’t reduce your wardrobe to a minimum. To confirm this, let us remember the passage from the film Crazy, Stupid, Love, in which Ryan Gosling, so stylish and handsome, throws out Steve Carell’s sneakers and radically changes his wardrobe:
One shouldn’t think that such rules are only applicable to men or are only related to those in the technological industry. Women who work in the fashion and art industry have long ago found their one and only image; one that suits them most and makes them feel comfortable, confirming our statements that only the style creates image, reduces stress and spares time.
Anna Wintour is the editor-in-chief of Vogue, and she is one of the most influential women in the world of fashion. For 20 years, she has not changed her hairstyle, showing that it is the only one which suits her. In addition, one can often notice her wearing the same sandals which were produced specifically for her by Manolo Blahnik. Anna’s dress cuts are also quite similar: they are either strictly made in the style of the 1950s or are lighter with bell-bottomed skirts, the so-called A-line.
Matilda Kahl, a New York art director, has also chosen a unified style for several years. By wearing styles like this, she is less concerned about her clothes during the day. A white silk blouse, black pants and various jackets which are always detailed in the unrepeatable stylish image of the business woman.
