Easy Ways to Refresh Your Closet This Season

Written by: Eduarda Loureiro

 

I feel like us girls are guilty of having too many things in our closets…

That’s why a lot of people are opting for capsule wardrobes these days. If you’re curious about it, Caroline has mastered and documented the art.

But we’re here to talk about how you can maintain a healthy relationship with your closet… How you can created a wardrobe that makes you feel happy and like it doesn’t get in your way… If you’re looking to bring a whole new perspective on the pieces you own and how you can use them, read on because we’re about to refresh your closet!

First…

Declutter. Every 6 months, I look through my closet to see what pieces I haven’t worn. If I feel like I’m not going to wear them anymore, I either sell* or donate them.

Secondly…

Organize. Make sure you come up with a system to harmonize your clothes whether by color, size, or type. I have all my long dresses on one side of the closet, followed by short dresses, shirts, and t-shirts. This way, I can easily pinpoint what I need when I need it.

Thirdly…

Hang up your favorite pieces right where you can see them. I use a clothing rack to have my must-haves of the season ready to grab and go. Right now, it’s a combination of skirts, bulky sweaters, and a few tops. It keeps me on my toes and prepared at all times.

Fourthly…

Know your style. This is the ultimate healthy goal! Knowing your style, what fits you best, and how you can use that to your advantage goes a million miles. A defined style helps you sort through the bullshit…stop buying excessive one-time wear items. Buy less and buy better – you’ll fare off better in the long run. Get to know the pieces that will withstand the test of time and reject the ones you buy on a whim.

Last but not least…

Focus on the basics, don’t go bananas with the statement items… It’s fairly important to have a good amount of basics (you only need one of each), but it’s also important to combine them with the pieces that are going to make your outfit pop. Mix things up!

*There are a lot of apps you can use to sell your clothes like, Poshmark, Etsy, Ebay, Tictail.
