For many women, it’s a struggle to find the right outfit for different occasions, even when we seem to have a closet full of clothes. Why is that? Well for one, sometimes there’s too many options, leading to wasted time that is better utilized doing other things.
Matilda Kahl, an art director at an advertising agency, knows what it’s like to get up in the morning and spend too much time getting ready, so instead, she’s opted for a uniform of black pants, a white shirt and “a little black bow.” She claims that it even takes her as little as 45 seconds to get dressed, not including putting on mascara.
On the weekend, she normally wears what she wants, but when it comes to work, she’d rather focus on getting things done. The only thing that changes about her work “uniform” are the shoes. She has 15 tops, and about 7 pairs of pants so that she has a clean look to wear everyday.
“I can’t tell you how liberating it is,” says Kahl. “And I don’t think you understand exactly how much time and effort you put into choosing clothes until you don’t have to choose.”
Although some of us would opt to risk a few more minutes for the sake of personal taste, Kahl has rendered other’s the inability to judge her based on her wardrobe, which is why she has chosen the uniform look.
Please let us know what you think! Would you wear a uniform to work everyday? We’d like to know!
