Feel like you have nothing to wear? You might need a closet edit!
Shopping can be fun and exciting. The feeling of acquiring a new accessory or article of clothing can be the perfect "picker upper". Or perhaps that purchase was just the thing we were looking for to elevate our look, but buying pieces without intent and with unnecessary repetition is not helpful to our wardrobe, budget and earth. It is easy for our new purchases to be forgotten in the abyss of our closets. A closet edit helps to ensure that all of your clothing, shoes and accessories are getting their intended use. With an organized system in place, you avoid buying things that you don't really need. Items that no longer serve you can be thoughtfully donated and key pieces can be identified for future acquisition with the intent to maximize your wardrobe.
Too often, we are quick to get rid of pieces that don't excite us anymore. If a repair needs to be done, or the fit isn't right, many tailors can help give new life to clothing with just a little love. It's worth finding a good tailor to help keep your clothing in top shape. If however, your clothes fit well and do not excite you anymore, consider changing up the look by incorporating different accessories. A wardrobe edit will optimize what you already have and be thoughtful about new additions, all while being true to your needs, lifestyle and image goals!
“The most sustainable garment is the one already in your wardrobe". - Orsola de Castro
A really thorough closet edit is imperative to a wardrobe that will serve you efficiently and inspire you to put your best foot forward each day. In my experience, I have found that having an objective outlook during an edit is key to getting better results. So whether you make it a fun activity with your friends or hire a pro, take a fresh look at your wardrobe and make it the best representation of your lifestyle and style goals.
