It’s time to get dressed. Your hand flips through one top after another without pause, and, despite your overflowing wardrobe, you feel you have nothing to wear. You’re convinced you need more clothes, and head out to a store to buy one new top – except, you return with three, because they were on sale and hey, who doesn’t love a bargain?
This happens over and over, with all of us, and doesn’t stop even as our homes suffocate and our planet creaks under the weight of this needless, wasteful consumption.
Project 333, an online challenge, encourages you to limit your wardrobe to 33 items for three months, including shoes and bags and excluding underwear, nightwear, loungewear and exercise gear.
Select 33 of your favourite items including jeans, skirts and basics in solid, neutral colours. Add daily-use shoes and bags, and seasonal wear like a jacket, if required. These 33 items will form your new wardrobe. Everything else gets boxed up and put away for 3 months. Your minimalist, capsule wardrobe is ready! When three months are up, refresh your wardrobe by exchanging some of the items in your closet with those in the box.
