Happy New year!! I am not one for making resolutions as I never really stick to them but I do love to have a good wardrobe detox. I think it's the best thing you can do to kick start your new year. It always gives me a boost and makes me feel even more excited about dressing for the new season.
So, it's the perfect time to pack away those festive jumpers, party wear and reassess your whole wardrobe. Getting rid of your ill fitted jeans, those bobbled jumpers and those trending items that you never wear will make way for a more considered and streamlined wardrobe. This will also help take out the stress of finding something to wear in the mornings. Plus, if you know exactly what you have in your wardrobe, you are likely to wear items a lot more.
My tips below will help you get started and guide you through to get your wardrobe looking it's best.
1. Start by pulling out all the clothes from your wardrobe into a pile so that you can see exactly how many clothes you have. You will need to be honest here... go through each item and ask yourself the following. Have I worn this in the last year? Does it still fit me? Does this item reflect my style? Can I wear this item more than one way?
Once you decide on each item, then divide them into piles i.e. keep, send to charity or need fixing. You may also have items of clothing that are sentimental or hold memories that you find hard to part with, if you wish to keep such items for this I advise you store them in a box or suitcase away from your wardrobe if you have the space.
