Closet Review Part Two
I cannot overemphasize the importance of a closet edit and review! Just going through your closet once every six months or so can make a huge difference in your wardrobe options. One trick I use is to turn all my hangars “backwards” at the beginning of a season. Then when I’m ready to switch over to the new season’s clothes any hangars that are still backwards are evaluated to see if I keep that item or donate it. As you’re cleaning out ask yourself the following questions:
1. Does it fit?
2. Is it in good condition? (No stains, tears or signs of wear)
3. Is it flattering? (Is it too loose/tight? Do the buttons gap?)
4. Can I pair the item with at least 3 other pieces in my current wardrobe?
5. If I were shopping today, would I buy it?
Asking these questions will help you determine what to keep and what to throw away/donate. Once you clean out, spend some time organizing! I organize my tops/jackets/sweaters by color, which makes finding things a lot easier. It’s definitely worth the time and makes assembling outfits a breeze.
If the thought of cleaning out/organizing your closet makes you want to run screaming into the street, don’t hesitate to ask for help! My daughters are wonderful about helping me, and I’ve helped them in return. If you’re in the Dallas/Fort Worth area Style Savvy DFW can help you, too!
