We have always been curious about the works, hobbies, principles as well as private live’s of successful people.  Why do successful people such as- Steve Jobs, Mark Zuckerberg, Albert Einstein, Barack Obama-  wear the same outfit every day? Is one of the questions most of the people are curious about. Because these people have so much money and they can get whatever clothes they want to, from the greatest designers or shops. But why do they choose it to wear the same thing, same color every day? What is the secret of this?

It is very obvious that the irrepressible ‘fashion passion’ has become as an addiction and obsessiveness in the century we are. But know we are going to explain you about the capsule wardrobe movement, and why the most successful people adopt it.

The capsule wardrobe is an alternative trend people use in terms to reduce the number of clothes at the wardrobes, by choosing basic clothes –usually in the same colors- that can be combined with each other easily.

Thinking about “what should I wear today? Will reduce your performance for the rest of the day.

“You’ll see I wear only gray 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.” – Barack Obama

Every single day we make hundred of decisions: Should I go to school or not? What should I eat today? Should I go out with my friends? Do I have enough time for it?

Our brain is constantly working and every decision we make is important for our brain’s working continuity. Which means, every – important or not- the decision we make at the beginning of the day influences our brain functioning for the rest of the day. Thinking about “what should I wear today?” for few minutes will reduce your decision-making ability, mental energy, as well as your performance as the day progresses.

Clothes are not important.

Successful people believe in quality, not quantity. Thinking about what to wear today is a waste of time for them. They have more important things to think about, clothes have no importance for them. If you also follow the capsule wardrobe procedure, you will see how much time you are going to save.

See Mark Zuckerberg’s wardrobe that he shared it on his Facebook account.


You become more self-confident.

The capsule wardrobe is the cheapest and easiest way to look spectacular. By creating your own simple and basic style, you are able to be stylish and comfortable every day in every task. At the same time, you don’t have to follow every new fashion trend and wear all those uncomfortable clothes. The capsule wardrobe will make you more self-confident because you and everybody else know your everyday style; you would not worry about the others whether they are judging your new clothes or not.

People who wear the same thing every day are more modest.

Look at Albert Einstein, Mark Zuckerberg or Steve Jobs. None of them have ever liked to boast about their intelligence, success, or money. Successful people wear the same outfit every day because they do not have the desire to wear clothes that show their wealth. They are simply modest people who we should take them as a role model example.

You become less anxious and happier.

If you wear the same outfit every day, you would not worry about what you should wear today every day you wake up; consequently, getting dressed would no longer be a battle. You would experience less stress for the rest of the day and your day would continue more in peace.
