If you ever experience the dilemma of owning too many clothes but feel like you have nothing to wear, then it’s high time to revamp your wardrobe. This can be a difficult task, but once you find the latest and greatest duds, you will have more closet space. Plus, you may even rediscover an old favorite.
Now is the time to take on the wardrobe revamp challenge, and we are here to help. With the following tips, you could save time finding the right outfit in the morning and reduce the clutter in your closet:
Most of us have clothing in our dressers and closets that we no longer wear. There could be those jeans that now run too small, an old work shirt you no longer need, or a ripped pair of pants that can’t be repaired. Unless it is a cocktail dress or other special occasion piece, you should think about the last time you wore it. Clothes that don’t fit or are no longer your style can be sold or given away. And, if you haven’t worn something for over a year, you probably won’t miss it.
Invest in Classic Pieces
Trends come and go, but classic pieces can be worn time and time again. A simple coat that goes with all your winter outfits should be a staple, as should a fitted pair of jeans. Additionally, consider including clothes that can be dressed up with accessories, such as a crisp white shirt, plain T-shirts and a black dress. Remember, it’s worth spending a little extra on classic, well-made pieces to ensure you’re getting the bang for your buck.
Don’t Forget the Lingerie
Your lingerie needs to fit properly, and you should feel good when wearing any number of these types of pieces. Of course, over time, your body will change and your existing collection may need to be replaced. If your lingerie is out of shape or you don’t feel confident wearing it, then it’s time to start shopping for replacements. Look for everyday lingerie that is subtle under clothing, prettier pieces for dressing up and sexy bodysuits.
Change of Season
As the seasons change, it’s a good idea to put away the clothes you don’t need in the short term. Be careful to pack your clothing in sealed storage, and use acid-free paper to wrap any delicates to prevent discoloration. Plus, when you alternate your closet between seasons, it gives you the opportunity to minimize the clutter. Inevitably, you’ll get into the habit of cleaning out your clothes regularly, and you will have more room in your wardrobe.
Any clothes in good condition that you no longer wear can be donated. These can either be given to a charity or a friend who will appreciate them. Not only will this make you feel good and help someone else, but it will also give you a mess-free closet. If you have friends who wear the same size clothing, you could even do a clothes swap to find some fresh, new pieces. Designer clothing can be sold for extra cash through online marketplaces or yard sales. For those who are creative, preloved clothes can be upcycled into a range of accessories, including aprons, cushions and quilts.
The Wrap Up
If your closet is looking cluttered and you can’t find anything worth wearing, then it’s time for a revamp! Donate, sell or throw away any pieces you no longer wear and make space for something new. Invest in classic pieces that can be worn in different ways and lingerie that makes you feel good whenever you wear it.
