How to do your own wardrobe detox

For this post I’m sharing some basic steps for you to follow, to tackle the job of spring cleaning your wardrobe. See it as a how to declutter process, and everyone wants to do that, right?

We’re through the first day of spring, so what better time is there to do this!

Here you go:

  1. Take out all the clothes in your wardrobe – in sections e.g. tops. Follow the below steps, then move onto the next section.
  1. Put back those items that you LOVE
  1. Sort through the remainder and put the items you definitely dislike into a pile – ready to be donated or perhaps thrown away
  1. With the remainder of the pile, ask yourself these questions:
  • Do I feel good when I wear this item? Does it make me feel confident?
  • When last did I actually wear this item? Can I envisage myself wearing it again?
  • Does this item fit me properly? Is it flattering on my body?
  • Is this item comfortable, or do I want to take it off halfway through the day?
  1. If you answered NO to any of the above questions, it’s time to let go of them. If you still can’t do this, put them into a bag or box, out of the way. Then, if you haven’t thought about any of the items in the box for 6 months, it’s safe to say you can let go of them.
  1. Start with the next section of clothing e.g. pants and follow the same process
  1. Once you’re done, spend time organizing your wardrobe in ways that work for you!

I hope those steps help you, let me know if you get going with your wardrobe and how the process felt for you.

* one other tip, take a ‘maybe’ item and force yourself to wear it, then see how you feel that day when you have it on – if you’re not feeling good wearing it then you know that it’s ok to let it go!
