Spring into action with your wardrobe
By Nichola English
Most people don’t have any idea what’s in their wardrobe, you’ve most likely resorted to throwing clothes in and shutting the doors, it’s probably jammed packed with clothes falling of hangers or even duplicated clothing, you get the picture. Spring has now arrived and it’s time pick up the feather duster and to step away from the black, yes put the black down, and say goodbye to an unorganised wardrobe with items that don’t serve you. It’s now time to indulge in a good spring clear out.
There are so many tangible benefits to a good old spring clean, you get to see things that you’d forgotten about ”hello, I forgot I had you!” It’s very empowering to really take control of your wardrobe.
Decluttering is supposed to be a fun process why not put some music on that really energises you, you might even end up singing and dancing in front of the mirror, I know I do. Take all your clothes out of the wardrobe hang them on a portable rail if you have one or on your bed. Place the clothing in to the following categories definitely a keeper, get rid of and charity/sell. As you’re doing this phase think about will I ever wear it, or why the hell did I buy this to keep you focused. Once you see the blank canvas, give the inside a well-earned spring clean, it’s like starting a whole new journey with yourself and wardrobe.
LET’S GET ORGANISED
Take everything that you’re not utilizing for the next few months and place into storage, an example for a spring wardrobe would likely be anything that resembles winter clothing, allowing you to start filling up that space with clothes for the season ahead Spring/Summer. You could group your clothing together all skirts, blouses, trousers or arrange them as outfit’s, whatever works for you and your lifestyle. Use the correct hangers so everything hangs well in your wardrobe and place shoes in clear shoe boxes and stack them on top this will help with the organisation of your wardrobe as well as the function of a less stressed space.
A good purge is sometimes all we need to restore our wardrobe harmony, it’s amazing how empowered and energized we feel when our wardrobe is less chaotic, on the plus side you’ll make much better choices when it comes to clothes shopping.
Have fun and enjoy the journey!
