This Quick Hack Makes It Easy To Decide What To Wear

This post is a must-read if you've ever been late because you couldn't decide what to wear!

There are a lot of things that can throw a wrench into your morning routine, and outfit indecision is definitely one of them. It might seem silly to some people to get sidetracked by something as simple as deciding what to wear, but that decision can have a real impact! In my experience, if I start my day wearing something that I don’t feel super confident about (for whatever reason), it can throw me off throughout the day.

Because of that effect, I am willing to take some extra time to find an outfit that I can feel good about wearing that day. Or, perhaps I should specify that I’m willing to take some extra time WITHIN REASON. I can’t afford to stand in front of my closet all day, agonizing over what to wear! So I eventually created a quick and easy solution that has helped me get around my outfit indecision. And I’ll be sharing that solution with you today!

How I Decided What To Wear

While some days it’s hard to decide what to wear, it’s not always a struggle! Occasionally I’ll put together an outfit that I really like, so I started keeping track of those successful outfits by taking a photo! I would simply stand in front of my mirror and snap a quick outfit pic with my phone. Then I would move the photo into a special folder (or “album,” as my iPhone calls it) that I made just for pictures of outfits I liked!

Over time, this photo album of outfits grew into something of a catalog of outfit options. Now, whenever I feel like I just can’t decide what to wear, all I have to do is pull out my phone! Perusing my album of outfit options acts as a reminder about things I could wear that I already know I like. It has been a huge help to me, because it narrows down my options so I don’t keep staring into my closet feeling overwhelmed. It’s like a digital stylist I can keep in my back pocket!

How To Make Your Own Outfit Photo Album

If my outfit photo album idea sounds like something that could help you, I hope you’ll give it a try! It only takes a few seconds to get started. To make a new photo album on an iPhone, start by opening the Photos app. Select the “Albums” tab near the bottom of the screen, then click the + symbol near the top of the screen. Select “New Album,” give your album a name, and voila! You’re ready to start filling it with outfit photos!

As I’m not an Android user, I’m not sure specifically how to create new albums in the Gallery app. However, I’m sure it is a very similar process to doing it on an iPhone, because the photo apps are pretty similar! When in doubt, just long press on a photo and see what options it brings up.

Do you have any tips for overcoming outfit indecision?
