From wardrobe woes to wardrobe wonder!
How is your wardrobe looking – mess or orderly?
How do you feel about your wardrobe – frustrated or excited?
How is your wardrobe working for you – appropriate and fresh or is it unsuitable and impractical?
And lastly, how do you want your wardrobe to look for the rest of the year – how does functional and inspiring sound rather than tired and boring.
If your wardrobe has been neglected for a while, then now is the time to get objective and real! It’s true a wardrobe clean out will take a bit of energy to sort through, so make sure you feel fresh and well rested. Try and choose a day with very few commitments and the effort will be worth it to start a fresh.
Too hard? Then book a wardrobe overhaul with me to work through each piece to get your wardrobe truly functional!
The goal is to have your items suitable, versatile and current to wear each and every day, and clearly visible in your wardrobe.
You will end up with four different piles…
The yes pile – I love it, need it, and wear it often. Hang these items neatly in your wardrobe in light to dark colour and style order. You are more likely to wear your clothes often if you can see them.
The toss pile – I don’t like it, does not fit, wrong colour and never wear it. Place these items in garbage bags ready to take to charity or throw in the bin.
The move on pile – I like it, it’s in great condition but never wear it. Think of a friend or family member who would love to receive these clothes. If the quality is good you could make some cash back on these garments, eBay and recycle boutiques are two great options.
The I’m not sure pile – I love it but not sure if it’s right on me. Look hard at repairing. Or does it just need a key piece to go with it to allow you to wear it successfully. Put these particular clothes and accessories away neatly and see if you go to them in the next six months. If you don’t, then toss or move on!
Now you can create wardrobe capsules with the remaining items! This can be done with just 12 clothing pieces and 5-6 accessories that all go together allowing you multiple outfit options. You will be amazed at the versatility you have right in your wardrobe at home.
