We all know that feeling when you’re rifling through your clothes but can’t find a single thing you feel good in. Before you start spending the cash for a complete wardrobe makeover, here are our top tips for making the most out of your closet and enjoying the clothes you already have.
Do some seasonal reorganization. In summer, pack up your warm wools to make more space for light summer dresses, shorts, and t-shirts—and vice versa. Once it starts getting colder, pack up your crop tops and sandals and spread out your sweaters. This way, you won’t be overwhelmed by the volume of clothes in your closet, and you’ll be able to better appreciate your seasonally appropriate items.
Holding on to holey jumpers, or dresses with wonky hems for that day when you finally pull out your sewing machine? Make that day today and fix up any clothes that need some TLC. There are plenty of amazing mending tutorials on YouTube that will help you get started.
Get Your Marie Kondo on!
We’re not saying you should throw out everything that doesn’t spark joy—a plain white tee or your old jeans might not fill you with absolute happiness but they’re certainly useful to have around. However, Marie’s got it right—a tidy wardrobe is much more user-friendly than a messy one.
