Declutter Your Wardrobe this 2019

By |February 4th, 2019|

In case you haven’t heard, Marie Kondo is taking the world by storm.  Her unique KonMari approach to decluttering your life is built on one question, “Does this spark joy?”  At first, it may seem like a ridiculous proposition but, in fact, it relates to a problem that so many men and women feel they have when they open their wardrobe each morning, “I have so many clothes, yet nothing to wear.” What this problem essentially boils down to is having too many clothes that don’t suit you well, for whatever reason; perhaps the sleeves are an awkward length, maybe you bought it when you were a size or two larger than you are now, or it’s made from a fabric that itches your skin.  Whatever the reason, there is something about that piece that does not “spark joy”.  The KonMari method is, in many cases, life changing.  It declutters and simplifies your life, making getting dressed each morning a joyful opportunity.  And so, inspired by Marie Kondo herself, here are some ways you can declutter your wardrobe (and your life) this 2019.

 

Own Less,  Buy Better

At Milk Shirts, we believe in owning less and buying better; investing in well-made pieces tailored to fit your body perfectly.  Shopping in this way typically does mean that you end up with items that you find joy in wearing, as they fit comfortably on your body and are made from fabrics that you personally picked out.  Although there can be a time and a place to buy off the rack, we believe in buying custom as much as possible and altering anything that you do purchase from a store.  It may sound drastic, but we’d suggest donating anything in your wardrobe which has not been […]

10 Reasons Why You Should Wear Color This Winter

By |January 10th, 2019|

Walk down practically any busy city street in the winter and you’ll see yourself engulfed in a sea of black, charcoal and, if you’re lucky,just a touch of navy blue.  It can be a deeply depressing sight; particularly when the mercury drops, the wind howls and the skies seem stuck in a perpetual cloud of grey.  That’s why we’re taking it upon ourselves to get more men wearing color this winter.  Why not add a glimmer of color (and hope) in the swarm of black and grey downtown?  A bit of brighter color is an instantaneous pick-me-up; it’s sure to get you noticed and immediately put anyone you come across in a brighter mood.  Think your corporate job won’t let you get away with a bit of color?  Think again.  There are so many ways to introduce a bit of color into your winter work wardrobe, while still remaining thoroughly professional.  Here are 10 reasons why you should wear color this winter, from us at Milk Shirts.

#1 White is A Color: You don’t have to reach for the crazy colors pile to add color to your look this winter.  Don’t forget, white is a color, too!  As are cream and beige and the whole ‘white’ spectrum.  A lighter color palette is immediately much more refreshing than depressing greys and blacks.  Try a look done in white, tan and ice-grey, instead of the usual dark and dreary suspects.

 

#2 It The Perfect Accent Piece: Introducing a bit of color to your look can be as simple as just adding a colorful scarf or pocket square to your otherwise monochromatic get up.  A colorful, textured scarf or pocket square are the perfect accent piece for winter.  And if you work in a seriously […]
