Wardrobe Basics Challenge — The White T-Shirt

September 4, 2017

white t-shirt and jeans

Have you ever grabbed a white t-shirt and jeans, then wondered how to wear them?

I’m kicking off the fall season with a new wardrobe challenge—The Wardrobe Basics Challenge — The White T-Shirt. I enjoy wardrobe challenges because they keep my wardrobe feeling fresh and new, while also making sure that I “think outside the box” of my standard outfit formulas.

A white t-shirt is often cited as being one of the most versatile pieces of clothing to own. This challenge puts that theory to the test.  Is a white t-shirt really as versatile as the experts say?  And more importantly, is a white t-shirt really versatile for my personal wardrobe? Just because the experts say it’s good, doesn’t always mean that the item in question is the right choice for me.

The current working closet is looking a little crowded.

I’m halfway through week 10 of the The DH Closet Challenge Part II-Wardrobe Refinement.  This post is the continuation from my week 8 check-in, my apologies for the delay in writing this number crunching post.

Items on the left are new additions, items on the right are to be purged.

Items on the left are new additions, items on the right are to be purged.

I’ve just completed Week 8 of The DH Closet Challenge Part II-Wardrobe Refinement.  There was no check in for weeks 5 or 6, because I had no changes to either my working wardrobe or the boutique.  However, for week 8 I’m back to shopping and adjusting both my working closet and the boutique.  Sticking to the rules of the challenge for every item going into my wardrobe, double the amount is removed.  That’s a tall order for someone who typically struggles to let go of their clothes.

Six pairs of unworn jeans.

Six pairs of unworn jeans in the boutique.

I’ve just completed Week 5 of The DH Closet Challenge Part II-Wardrobe Refinement.  This past week I tackled why the boutique has been on my mind.  While I added 5 items to my working closet, I did manage to purge 10 from the boutique.  Of course, once I get started with a closet purge, I usually keep going.  After removing 10 items from the “2 for 1” purge during the week, I set my sights on another category within the boutique—Jeans.  For the past 5 weeks, I’ve managed just fine with 7 pairs of jeans, yet I still have 6 jeans sitting in the boutique.

And here’s the crazy part.

I’ve just completed week 4 of The DH Closet Challenge Part II-Wardrobe Refinement.  As I stated during the Week 3 check-in, for Week 4 my goal was to NOT add anything to my working closet.  And I am happy to report, that I did not.  Yay, progress!

I still have 49 items after Week 4 and here’s the list:
