Transitioning from winter to spring is a great time to reevaluate and clean out your closet. Getting started can be overwhelming, so here are a few tips to help.
Begin by pulling everything out of your closet, including accessories. Split your items into three piles based on how often you’ve worn them in the last twelve months: frequently, at least once, and not worn. The easiest pile to start with is the last one. If you haven’t worn the item, try it on and inspect it carefully. Does it fit? Is it damaged or is there some other reason you haven’t worn it? Maybe you bought it on sale and don’t really enjoy it or it doesn’t flatter you. If you wouldn’t purchase it again today, put it in the donate bag.
For your other two piles, go through the same analysis. Even if it’s something you wear often, ask yourself if you really love it. If you’re not sure, try it on. See if it still fits properly. Maybe it needs alteration to freshen it up. Keep an eye out for items you could wear together that you may not have thought of. You can even create a notebook to keep track for when you get in a rut.
And don’t forget to go through your shoes and purses. If they need repair or cleaning, a local shoe hospital can help. Taking stock of what you have will help you transition your wardrobe into spring and see what items you need to eliminate or add.
