SIX WAYS TO ORGANISE YOUR WARDROBE EACH SEASON – I’m never keen on just organising your wardrobe twice a year – I feel you should be ‘on it’ more often than you think – this way you can be more in control.
It also helps with understanding how good or poor your sustainable shopping habits currently are; along with managing your financial budget on wardrobe management. Read on for my tips that you should use often as part of managing your stylish wardrobe.
Edit for the season
You can’t wear your entire wardrobe so why have it all out? I edit every 12 weeks for the next 8-12 weeks. Freeing space in your wardrobe, will let your clothes breathe; this is really important if you have invested in natural fabrics like cashmere, wool and silk.
Only if you love it
I’m a firm believer that you should love what you are wearing. You have much happier days if you do! We all fall in an out of love with items, that’s normal. Store, sell or giveaway what you no longer need.
If you hang your clothes in colour order you can quickly find find THAT item you want to wear. Plus this also informs you if you have a good/bad addiction to one particular colour!
Make a note
Whilst you edit you will make mental notes about gaps or things you may need. Write them down there and then or you will forget. This list is great to have on you for shopping trips, so that you only buy what you actually need.
Get it on display
If you hide it, you won’t wear it! What you plan to wear over the next season, get as much of it on shelves and shoes out of boxes so that you make the most of wearing them.
Get it fixed
As you edit, check your garments and shoes you’ve not worn for a while. Investigate getting them mended so that you can wear them early in the new season or another year can easily pass.
