As fall rapidly approaches and your wardrobe and footwear changes from bright and light to dark and heavy, you want to maintain your style, comfort, flexibility and individuality. Trying on your current wardrobe of clothing and footwear and checking for fit is a seasonal ritual that can consume a lot of time and energy or, if you choose, it can be a relaxing and revealing experience. There are items of clothing that may not fit but can be altered and others that are ready to be sold on consignment or given away to a worthy cause or individual. If much of your wardrobe and footwear is ill-fitting or unsuitable, it may indicate that you need to find clothing and footwear that is the right fit for you. It may also be a metaphor that illustrates that something may be ill-fitting or unsuitable in your life, career or business and you may need to discover a new and improved right fit for you.
Fit is a marvelous three-letter word with many meanings. It is a verb, a noun and an adjective. Fit is used to describe the way items of footwear and clothing look and feel on your feet and the rest of your body as in How does it fit? Fit can describe how others see you or you see yourself in a new or current role, team, project or organization as in Is this a good fit?

Fit also describes an individual who takes care of themselves as in a person who keeps fit physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually. Fit requires care, comfort, clarity, concern, communication and commitment.
