The changing of the seasons always finds us stocking up on the latest looks, but it’s not always easy to find room for them in the closet. That’s why there’s no time like the present to finally clean out your closet! It can be hard, we know, but there are ways to make it easier! We recommend you ask yourself the following questions to help with the process:
1) Have you worn it in the past year? We understand that some items are worn less often than others, but if you haven’t worn an item in more than a year, it’s probably best to get rid of that piece to make way for something more fabulous!
2) Does it fit? Dress for the body you have now, and get rid of items that are too small or too large. Our figures are bound to change over time, and our clothes should change too! Stick with the clothes that fit your body now and flattering outfits are sure to follow.
3) Is it damaged? We are all guilty of hanging on to an item that we love, even though it has a hole or a stain. If you’re sure you can (and will!) get it fixed, then by all means keep it! Otherwise, if it takes more effort than you will realistically put forth, it is probably best to break up with that item.
4) How do you feel when you wear this? When you feel good, you look good! If wearing a particular item doesn’t make you feel confident, then it’s time to part ways and find something new to love.
But wait, don’t just toss those clothes in the trash! Consider donating them or doing a clothing swap with the gal pals to give those clothes a second life!
