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.
The "Skinny" Day Jeans
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.
The Shirt That Was an Extra 50% Off
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.
The Dress That's Just One Size Too Small
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.
