September is here and with it the gorgeous Springtime season!
As Spring is known for, it’s a time of new directions and new beginnings. In this week’s blog, we want to share with you some Spring clean-up tips for your wardrobe.
Have you ever watched an episode of a lifestyle show where the hosts give a makeover to their guest? It doesn’t have to be as drastic as reality tv shows demonstrate, but they’re still on the right track. Your wardrobe spring clean has to start with a review.
Firstly, try on each item. Then, ask yourself these questions while looking at each piece:
Can you make the garment smaller/bigger? Or perhaps give it to someone else who it fits and would appreciate getting it?
Check for damages.
Have you worn it in the last 12 months? (as Elle magazine says: If you haven’t worn it in a year, what makes you think you’re going to wear it now? Don’t hoard items under false pretenses).
If it doesn’t fit into much – how much do you love this garment? Is it unique enough to keep?
As you review each garment and have an idea about each of its merits, sort your wardrobe into piles.
Doesn’t fit anymore? Not something you see yourself wearing again but still in perfect condition: Give it away – as they say, one’s throw away can be another’s treasure.
The essentials and key stand out pieces that make the bulk of your wardrobe.
Is it worth saving? Fix it! You’ll find out in the review stage just how much is in your wardrobe that you don’t wear because of a simple reason (a faulty zipper, a small hole in the bottom etc). If it’s really beyond saving, it might be time to retire the garment to the bin.
Your circumstances might have changed since your last spring clean. Moved to another area closer to the beach where it is warmer? Have an upcoming event such as a vacation to a tropical destination or a cruise trip? Think about your lifestyle right now and where you think you’re headed this coming year – does your wardrobe reflect this?
