How does Will from A Suitable Wardrobe plan his dress?

I would say this is ridiculous (and, really, a first-world problem), but it’s something I’ve encountered myself.

So, it’s why I’ve more-or-less adopted a work uniform (weekends are quite different). Everything goes with my navy blazer and neutral grey trousers. It all comes together quite seamlessly in the haze of a rushed morning.

Plus, when I travel in the spring for work, I’m forced to pack in advance. Again, I’ve learned to keep it quite simple.

Oddly enough, it’s casual clothing that gets more complex for me than work clothing. By removing the framework of a uniform, choice actually breeds paralysis in many ways. 

When that happens, you just need to hit yourself and say, “You are really overthinking this.”
