Do you have too many clothes in your wardrobe and do not know what to do about it? You find it difficult, letting things go in case you might get an invite somewhere to wear it. Or, you may have paid a lot of an item and feel guilty about letting it go or you may have an emotional attachment. I have a few suggestions here on how to rethink your wardrobe and wear more of your clothes.

Do you have too many clothes in your wardrobe?

I cull my wardrobe each season and as I put the next seasons clothes back into the wardrobe it is a good idea to put all the hangers one way. As you get things out and wear them, when they go back into the wardrobe, put the hanger the other way round. This way you will see which items you are wearing and which you are not. This will make it easier to see which items you no longer wear.

Do you have too many clothes in your wardrobe?

If you have too many clothes in your wardrobe this can cause overwhelm. You cannot see what you do have, which makes putting outfits together very difficult. Things get lost at the back of the wardrobe and you end up buying more which sometimes you will already have. This then becomes a costly mistake.

How many costly mistakes do you have?

Some clients I have seen have items in their wardrobe that still have the tags on. We all make mistakes and buy items that are not right for us for many reasons. I am usually quite good and when I buy a new item, I hang it on my TV rail in my bedroom. I check my wardrobe for things that I can wear with it, and if I don’t think it will work well with my wardrobe, I return it. My husband gets cross with me because of the number of returns from online orders. I hate ordering online as they never look like the picture online but of late, we have not had much choice. The point is you don’t want to fill your wardrobe with items you are not going to wear.

Mistakes made in the sales

Sales can be a time to buy things that you don’t need. We all like a bargain, but it is not a bargain if you are not going to wear it. Ask yourself the question if I could have afforded it at full price would I have bought it? I say this as usually I buy things in the sale that I would not have been able to afford at full price. Shops that are out of my price range normally I visit when they have a sale. In the past I used to buy many things in the sales ,and I found that when I was culling my wardrobe, I found that the sale items were the one to go.

Shop you own wardrobe

Yes, I have suggested this before, but it is a good way to find the hidden gems lurking at the back of the wardrobe. Ask yourself if I was shopping now would I buy this item? If the answer is no, then perhaps it is time to let it go. Try and make some outfits from your existing wardrobe that you have not worn together before. You will be surprised how many outfits you can make out of a few clothes.

My challenge to you

Pick out ten items from your wardrobe and make seven outfits one for each day of the week. Start with a few basics and then add the colourful tops. This is a way of making your wardrobe work for you. Having fewer items in your wardrobe make it easier to choose what to wear and to put outfits together.
