|You might …
|Keep every piece of clothing you've ever owned
|Be clinging to the past through the sentimental value of your pieces
|Adopting the Golden Wardrobe Ratio: Get rid of 2 out of 3 items you own, including anything too big/small, ripped/torn or outdated.
|Wear only neutrals, largely devoid of accessories
|Be stuck in a psychological rut, too comfortable to shake it up, or too afraid to draw attention to yourself.
|Deviating from your routine in small ways (a different route to work, a few new spring accessories--like these inexpensive ways to incorporate trendy polka dots--to jog your brain into feeling excited
|Dress in clothing too large for your body
|See your body differently than others see it, or as a reflection of the way it once was.
|Bringing an honest friend shopping to find out what looks great on you, ignoring sizes and getting used to wearing clothes that really fit.
|Have been told you're dressed inappropriately or too sexily
|Consider the same outfit appropriate for every occasion (i.e. clubbing and family barbecue), or be looking for the wrong kind of attention.
|Consider the image you want to project in given situations (at work, on the town) and choose outfits based on cues from those around you
|Dress too young (or too old) for your age
|Be trying to express the age you feel you are, but getting caught between your actual and internal age

|Value yourself primarily through your work and work-related accomplishments
|Recognizing your talents outside of work (great artist, compassionate, fun to bring to parties, etc.)
|Covered in designer logos

|Practice wearing "blank canvas" pieces and only accenting with logos to emphasize that people value you for more than your labels
