4 Ways to Get the Most out of Your Wardrobe



You own more clothes than you wear. You get comfortable wearing your favorite pieces from week to week. Here are some steps to help your look be more diverse, make your clothes last longer, and purge yourself of unneeded/unwanted clothes. 

Turn Your Hangers Around

Once you've worn a piece that hangs up, turn the hanger backwards, to signify that it's been worn. Try to go through your clothes until all items have been worn. You'll find gems that you forgot you had. 

Clean out a Drawer

For your folded clothes, have a cleaned out drawer that items go to once you've worn them. This leaves clothes you need to wear in your other drawers. When is the last time you've made it to the bottom of your drawer? Use this opportunity to really see what's been sitting in your dresser. 

Start Your Outfit with an Unworn Item 

Start your outfit planning with a clothing item that hasn't been worn yet in order to insure you at least get one thing you haven't worn into your clothing rotation. 

Sell, Giveaway and Throw Away

Through this process you will undoubtedly come across things you know you don't want or need any more. Get rid of them instead of taking up valuable space. If it's in bad shape, throw it away or turn it into a rag for cleaning. If it's in good shape but no longer your style or fit, sell it or donate it. I usually donate to Purple Heart, you can set up the donation online and they come to your house and pick up the items.  

I've been following these steps since the beginning of summer and this process really makes me think outside my usual box when creating outfits. It's also helped me find pieces I forgot I even had, and to get rid of things I know I'll never wear again. 

How are YOU getting the most out of your wardrobe?
