Feeling unmotivated by the clothes in your wardrobe? Missing clothes that you've blamed your sibling or friend for losing when in fact, they're actually scrunched in a ball at the back of your wardrobe?
Sometimes, the best thing to do to be inspired by your own wardrobe is to have a clean out and get rid of the pieces that are limiting you from feeling good in what you wear everyday. And it doesn't have to take forever to do it!
Here's my top three style tips that will make your clean out constructive and leave you feeling organised.
Before you start
Do yourself a favour and purchase matching coat hangers. Wooden coat hangers are my recommendation, as they don't leave marks on delicate garments like the metal ones do. A cheaper alternative are the black flocked (velvet look) coat hangers. These can be purchased from Kmart. Another tip before you start is to lay all items of clothing on your bed so you can see what you're working with. This will force you to finish the clean out in one day and get the items you're keeping back in to your wardrobe so you can actually go to bed that evening.
1. Try everything on before you let it go back in to your wardrobe
Only let things back into your wardrobe if they fit into the following:
appears to be in good condition
makes you feel good
suits your body shape (and accentuates your assets)
fits you (ditch anything that's either two sizes too big or two sizes too small)
you've worn it in the last two years.
