With new trends and old favorites in the fashion industry, it can be hard to determine what to keep and what to give away. Thus, here is your curated guide to streamline your closet in the best way.
With so many fashion bloggers, magazines and websites telling you what to wear and when to wear it, it’s understandable to be torn on what to keep in your closet. So when you’re thinking of what trendy items to keep, try to think if the item will come back in style. For example, rock concert tees are an item to hang onto for a normcore or grunge look. But those Ugg boots you’ve had since high school may have worn out their welcome.
When it comes to classic items, the more, the better. It’s smart to spend your money on an investment piece that you can wear year after year. Items like tailored black slacks, a crisp button-down shirt, neutral heels or a statement necklace are pieces that can be mixed and matched season after season.
Whatever clothes you decide to move on from, you should donate them to a righteous organization like Dress for Success. Each Dress for Success client receives one suit when she has a job interview and can return for a second suit or separates when she finds work.
If all else fails, it’s possible that your closet simply doesn’t have enough space. Try thinking of your closet as a blank slate and what would you do with it if that were the case? Would you add shelves, put in another hanging rod or add bins for your purses? Check out The Container Store for affordable ways to make the most out of every inch of your closet.
