If you’re like us, you have a habit of looking at pictures of sleek, well-maintained closets on the internet. If you’re even more like us, you might find yourself wondering how anyone can keep their closet so slim and organized. Here are some simple ideas for paring down your wardrobe to make your closet look perfect.
Cut Clothes That Don’t Fit
Everyone has that pair of pants they’re hoping to fit into once again, but until that day comes, they’re just taking up space. Chances are there are quite a few pieces that don’t fit well anymore, whether from shrinking in the wash or getting stretched out over time. There’s no need to keep these pieces in your closet, so send them off to Goodwill!
Reduce Seasonal Clothes
Seasonal clothes like snow boots and winter coats belong in your coat closet. Other than that, you don’t need seasonal clothes that you wear once a year hogging space in your wardrobe. Go through your collection and pick out anything you haven’t worn in the last year. We’re betting you won’t get much more use out of these pieces, so send them on their merry way.
Picking up styles that correspond to trends is a surefire way to stock your closet with nearly unwearable clothes. Fast fashion is harmful to the environment for this very reason, so consider avoiding trendy looks in favor of timeless classics. There are a few pairs of shoes every woman should have, and beyond that, it’s just overkill.
Take Everything Out
The best way to make significant headway on your closet’s surplus is to physically remove every single article of clothing. Then, only return the pieces you truly love. This forces tough decisions much more effectively than visually scanning items already in your closet.
Now that you know these simple ideas for paring down your wardrobe, enjoy reduced stress and more time to focus on the important things in life!
