Why Successful People Choose To Wear The Same Clothes Everyday

Is this one of their secret to success?

A A A

In today’s fashion-obsessed world, one would be shocked to discover that there are some people who wear the same outfit every single day of their lives.

This movement is called the ‘capsule wardrobe’ and if you’ll look closely, you’d find out that this is a trend particularly among some of the most successful and famous individuals in the world.

To be a little more specific, you may have noticed that Facebook head honcho Mark Zuckerberg exclusively wears gray shirts. Apple co-founder Steve Jobs, on the other hand, used to rock turtle neck black sweatshirts.

Why sport this unconventional fashion sense, you ask? The BecomingMinimalist website cited eight strong reasons.

1. Fewer decisions.

The blog tells us that “For people who make significant decisions every day, the removal of even one — choosing clothes in the morning — leaves them with more mental space and better productivity throughout the day.”

US President Barack Obama has been quoted saying:

“You’ll see I wear only grey or blue suits. I’m trying to pare down decisions. I don’t want to make decisions about what I’m eating or wearing. Because I have too many other decisions to make.”

Along with that, Mark Zuckerberg once told an audience:

“I really want to clear my life so that I have to make as few decisions as possible about anything except how to best serve this community.”

2. Less time wasted.

Believe it or not, trimming down your fashion options can actually help you save a lot of time.

Joshua Becker, author of the Becoming Minimalist article, shared:

“It was almost five years ago that I first experimented with Project 333 — a personal challenge of wearing only 33 articles of clothing for a period of three months. The project is simple, life-changing, and wildly beneficial. I quickly discovered one of the greatest benefits of limiting my wardrobe: the gift of time. Getting ready in the morning became easier, quicker, and more efficient.”

3. Less stress.

For 4 years now, Saatchi & Saatchi art director Matilda Kahl has worn the same white shirt and black pants combination. She explained:

“I did it because I realized how much time and energy I could save during my workdays by just taking out the clothing aspect.”

4. Less wasted energy.

In an interview with the New York Times Magazine, acclaimed Hollywood director Christopher Nolan said it was “a waste of energy to choose anew what to wear each day.”

Nowadays, he only dons dark, narrow-lapeled jacket and black trousers.

5. Feeling put together.

Denaye Barahona of Dallas, Texas, decided to embrace the capsule wardrobe and it had a profound impact on her life.

“Pre-capsule, my wardrobe was like the Cheesecake Factory menu. It went on for days and was overwhelming. Most of my options didn’t fit right, didn’t look right, or I just plain didn’t like. On the other hand, my capsule wardrobe is like a fine-dining restaurant. I have fewer choices but I can be sure all of the choices will be amazing. Not only do I look better, I feel better.”

6. Iconic.

New York-based writer Alice Gregory, on the other hand, said that wearing a ‘uniform’ is “iconic.” It’s also a “cheap and easy way to feel famous.”

7. Less expense.

At some point, we’re all guilty of purchasing clothes and shoes that we rarely wear.

Becker continued:

“Living with a capsule wardrobe or adopting an iconic uniform removes most of the waste and expense from trial-and-error clothing purchases — not to mention all the time wasted shopping for items only to return later.”

8. More peace.

In a Refinery29 blog, actress Drew Barrymore wrote about her love-hate relationship with clothing before she settled for capsule.

“For starters, I’m almost 40, and the twenties clothes don’t make sense anymore. And, after two babies, the thirties clothes don’t fit anymore. I am at a clothing crossroads, and it’s a painful one at times.”

Thanks to minimizing her alternatives, she says her closet is now “sane and happy” while she is “now calmer and more peaceful.”
