Questions To Help You Edit Your Wardrobe
Are you having trouble deciding what items to hang on to and which ones to toss or donate? If so, let me help guide you a bit. Below is a list of questions that you should ask yourself as you sort through your wardrobe.
1. Is the item stained, ripped, or in otherwise unwearable condition? If yes, can it be fixed? If it cannot be repaired, toss it!! If it can be repaired, move on to the next question to help decide if you want to go to the trouble of getting it back in wearable condition.
2. Have you worn the item within two years? If the answer is no and the item isn’t a cocktail dress, snow skiing clothing, or some other rarely worn item then move on to the next question. If you haven’t worn the item in two years, otherwise, it is a great time to get rid of it and make space for an item you will get use out of.
3. Do you love the item? If you have worn an item in the last several years, it isn’t stained or in other disrepair, but you aren’t in love with it anymore…toss it and move on! “Ain’t nobody got time for that!” LOL!!
4. Can you immediately think of several ways that you can wear the item? This would be a great time to put a few outfits together and take pics of them so you can refer back when you are in need of quick outfit ideas.
Sometimes we need a little extra push and guidance to figure out what should become a mainstay in our closets, so I hope this helps a bit! By purging and ending up with only the items you love, you are well on your way to discovering your own personal style. Have fun!
