An out-of-control wardrobe can be 'frightening' particularly if you have a busy life. If you can't see it, you can't wear it. If you can't find it, you're wasting time every morning.
The start of a new month, a new season or a New Year - anytime is a good time to turn over a new leaf!
or small, whether you're a big spender or on a budget - sorting out, tidying up and beautifying your wardrobe can make it a pleasure to visit it every morning.
Anything that makes your life smoother and easier benefits everyone, and fashion has very little to do with it!
Why wouldn't you want to make your life easier? organize your wardrobe so you can:
Start by investing in a set of inexpensive coat hangers, you'll be amazed what a pleasure it will be to open the closet door.
Whether your wardrobe is extensive or very limited, having a thorough clean-out and tidy-up makes everything workable.
It's far better to have a few items that you can see and use than a huge amount of clothes that you can't even find.
Unfortunately, like most women, your wardrobe has probably 'happened' rather than been 'put together'. You've probably bought a jacket here, a top there, something else that caught your eye, and rarely have you ever thought about the overall picture.
By the time your closet is working for one season, it's probably all change again. That's completely disorientating!
Once you tidy and organize your wardrobe you're half way towards a complete Closet Makeover.
You're probably thinking that editing and getting rid of wardrobe items is going to be expensive but, in the long run, it is far more economical to look at the whole picture, work out what you need and plan carefully.
Buying haphazardly is often wasteful but a few well thought out outfits and accessories which work together can provide an outfit for every occasion. It means you'll never have to shop in panic again!
You don't need an expansive and expensive wardrobe. A few items that fit and flatter you are worth far more than lots of clothes that do nothing for you.
and tidy storage makes every item visible and accessible. I've recently
started hanging up my scarves - now I can see them all and no creases!
Closets (a bit like life!) are rarely perfect but they can improve immeasurably with just one or two small changes.
my step by step guide to edit your wardrobe. The first step is to sort
out the items that are already redundant - those you don't like; those
that don't fit; those that don't do you justice. What you have left are
the garments that fit you, and those that make you look and feel good.
In the future you'll learn how to be far more fussy! In fact, you should only buy if 'You need it badly, and Love it madly!'
When you only buy clothes that suit you, fit you and co-ordinate with your existing wardrobe, you'll soon build a small collection of garments that work perfectly for you and your lifestyle.
If it doesn't qualify then it isn't worth spending your hard earned money!
