Closet Psychology 101: What Your Clothing Says About You

What is in a closet? Heaps of unworn clothing, dresses with tags still on them, an ex-boyfriend’s sweaters, or jeans that are too tight? Often what we find in a woman's closet gives us a peek into her personality, emotional state, fears or desires. How does a closet project who you are to other people, and more importantly, is your wardrobe covering up your potential? We spoke with Tracy DiNunzio, the CEO and founder of Tradesy, to give us a little insight about what exactly is lurking in our closets.

    Your Closet is Filled With...Unworn Clothing (Tags Still On)

    You could be wearing your future, but not building it.

    “For a woman whose closet is filled with unworn clothing with the tags still on, she isn’t holding onto anything in the past but she has an ideal of what she wants her life to look like. Yet, the reality isn't matching up. Rather than doing something more constructive about it, she is buying clothes for that life and not wearing them. That is my favorite type of profile because all you have to do in that case is start wearing those clothes no matter what you are doing or where you are going. You will kind of free yourself to pursue that type of life that you bought all of those clothes for in the first place rather than having them sit in the closet.”
