    I’m not sure, but I guess these two sentences are different.
    The first sentence means that I have to change clothes before doing something. (action)
    The second sentence means that I have to take another clothes, in case of necessity.(thing)

    1. You’re right that they’re different.

      The first (CHANGE THE WARDROBE) refers to the piece of furniture. Maybe it’s old or too small and I need to replace it.

      The second (CHANGE OF WARDROBE) means that I need to replace the clothes I have with new ones. It could be that my clothes are old and/or unfashionable or even that they don’t fit me any more. On the other hand Yuko, what you explained is a CHANGE OF CLOTHES. Let’s say that straight after work you’re off to the theatre. Since you don’t want to go there in the same outfit, you take a CHANGE OF CLOTHES with you.
