The New Year is the perfect time to whip your wardrobe into shape!
As we're all considering resolutions, and looking to make the most of the year to come, our closets have a huge impact on our daily stress and productivity. What better way to hit the ground running in 2018 than with a much-needed closet purge?! Make room in your life for next year's trends with a few of these simple tips.
Pro-Tip 1: Wine + Playlist
Power down the phone and put on your favorite motivational playlist! It's time to get in the zone so you can make quick decisions.
Pro-Tip 2: Use Three Hampers
Sell - Items you love, but no longer wear and want to get a return from!
Donate - Business appropriate, tailored items in good condition for charitable organizations!
Trash - Anything with stains, holes, or irreparable damage.
Pro-Tip 3: Have a System
Break down your wardrobe into more manageable sections before tackling the overwhelming task! Maybe you have an area where you keep trendier pieces or recent purchases for quick and easy staging. Try assembling looks with these pieces as you're pulling items from your closet! There could be pieces you're already struggling to wear, in which case this is a good time to take action. Either you make the effort to have fun with these pieces in the new year, or it's time to toss and make room for pieces you'll actually enjoy wearing.
Pro-Tip 4: Be Decisive
"Yes!" "No!" ... "Maybe" is not an option!
Pro-Tip 5: Be Consistent
Resolve to repeat this process regularly in 2018, and keep a hamper in your closet for donations, items that need to be tailored, etc. This will help you get in the routine of a year-round purge and avoid the overwhelming seasonal task!
