List RulesWomen: vote up the things you have had sitting in your closet for years and years, but know you will never wear.

An old bridesmaid dress. A celebrity-style inspired fedora. "Skinny day" jeans. What do these items have in common? Sure, they are things all women own. But more than that, they are clothes women own but never wear. 

It is a truth universally acknowledged that only about 20% of clothes all women own get worn on a regular basis; the other 80% of your clothing is made up of impulse buys, too-small jeans, too-big bras, or stuff with sentimental value that is hard to say goodbye to. Here's a list of things all women have but never wear; vote up the items that have been sitting in your closet, untouched, for the longest.

    Who can pass up a good sale? A slashed price can take a blouse from "just okay" to "totally worth it" in the fitting room. But what seems like a good idea at the time most often just feels like a #fashionfail once you get home.

    Every woman has that one pair of jeans that doesn't quite fit, but they're close enough that we hold on to them. Sure, they might be acceptable to wear in public after a bout of the stomach flu, but for the most part, these jeans are just depress you every time you spot them in the back of your closet.

    It's happened to all of us: you spot the perfect dress on the rack and it's almost your size. You try it on and it's just not working. "Maybe with a pair of Spanx" you think, purchasing the dress anyway. But Spanx aren't miracle workers, and this dress will never fit the way you want it to. Sigh.

    Summer vacations in tropical locations require a local fashion purchase or two. Every lady has a brightly-printed sarong or handwoven purse taking up space in her closet—good for a memory but not much else.
