Hello Fashion Loves,
This is a revamp of an old blog post from awhile back, I hope you enjoy and get some of these FREE closet clean-out tips:
During the summer, I tend to cut down on my wardrobe a little, shedding my wardrobe with things I don’t wear or that are worn out! I normally suggest the same thing for others. Most of the time, I try to get this done before I leave school for summer break, cuts down on things I bring home or at the very beginning of summer, as soon as I get home; before I start to buy new things. Here are some tips on what you should get rid of in your closet, so that you can add fresh new pieces.
- Is there a button missing or a hole in this garment?
- When is the last time you’ve worn this garment?
- How well does this garment fit? ( if it fits too loose or too tight, ditch it!)
- Is the garment worth being altered?
If you have a problem, judging whether to throw out your garments or not, ask a friend to help with the process.
Shoes & Accessories:
- Does the piece have any damages?
- How well does it fit?
- Will you wear the piece in the next 2 weeks?
- Accessories, how well does it look compared to when you bought it?
I would suggest going through your closet for a clean-out every season, to make room for items that you will buy during that time of year.
Here are a few things that should remain in your closet, no matter the season:
- Tank tops ( during the cold months, these are great for layers)
- A light sweater (for cold summer mornings/evenings)
- A good set of lounge clothes ( sweat pants/sweat shirts)
- Work-out clothes
This is a list of things that should be replaced every 6-12 months:
- White/Black T-shirts (these pieces don’t stay fresh looking for long, so it never hurts to buy new ones)
- Stud Earrings ( every girl needs a fresh pair of studs, they are so easy to lose so always make sure you have a fresh pair available)
- Jeans ( maybe not replaced but a new pair of jeans should be added to your wardrobe at least 1-2 times a year; to replace the ones that are developing holes )
Also, something that wouldn’t hurt is a new pair of shoes every couple of months to replace the shoes that you should let go!
