Many professionals suggest keeping an entirely separate wardrobe for work attire, which could help lessen the time it takes in deciding what to wear each day.
Two-thirds of the respondents from a recent survey followed this practice, but interestingly, it still took workers surveyed an average of 11 minutes a day to choose their workwear. Men turned out to be the pickier gender, taking 12 minutes to choose their outfit, versus 9 minutes for women.
Age matters too. Millennials (18 to 34) took the longest to pick their work outfit, needing 13 minutes to find the right combination, while the workers over 55 needed the least amount of time to decide — just 7 minutes. Middle-aged workers fell in the middle, averaging about 10 minutes for their selections.
