Finally, Spring is here! We can now look forward to warmer days. There’s something about the warmer weather that makes me want to reorganise my wardrobe and I’m sure that most of you are the same. But before you go shopping and buy anything new for spring I would suggest a ‘Wardrobe Audit’, this could save you time and money and who doesn’t need more of both.
- Firstly pack away any bulky clothes that you aren’t likely to wear until next Autumn.
- Identify those clothes you don’t wear any longer.
- if you haven’t worn it in 2 years you probably won’t
- if it doesn’t fit or you bought it on impulse, we’re all guilty of that one
- or you don’t know how to wear it then maybe it should go.
Donate them to #Vinnies or the Salvation Army, or get together with a couple of girlfriends and have a market stall or garage sale, that will give you a bit of extra cash to replenish your wardrobe.
3. Face all your hangers the same way and buy some of these hangers
that drop the level of the hanger, place them alternately and it will give
you more space.
Now that’s done let’s check your basics, a must have in everyone’s wardrobe. Make sure you know what basics you need or need to replace, like that black cami, how much has it faded, or that white Tee is it yellowing or stained, you know how white attracts bolognaise sauce…..and a nude cami or slip certainly something no girl can be without under an overly sheer top or dress.
Basics are a very important part of your wardrobe even though you may find them somewhat unexciting. When it comes to shopping basics if you buy basics that fit and complement what’s already in your wardrobe it means you’ll always have something to wear and choose comfortable feel-good fabrics like viscose or cotton, as they are soft next to your skin.
