The one thing I have learnt during this lock down is that I have too many clothes in my wardrobe that I do not wear. I am a great hoarder and find it difficult to let go of things, and yet I also love to buy new things. I try to work on a one in, one out policy, but I still have things that I hold onto in case I have an occasion to wear them. Why do you have things in your wardrobe that you do not wear? Your wardrobe should be full of things you love and love to wear. Here are my tips on h w to start wearing your unworn clothes or let them go.

A couple of weeks ago I wrote a Blog about how you can re-style clothes that you are no longer wearing. Here are some ideas on how you can change the use of a blouse or your jeans. I also have a page on my Pinterest with some ideas on how to re-use things that you don’t wear into something that you will.

How do you let things go?

It’s all very well saying you need to de-clutter, you need to streamline what clothes you have, but how do you do that if you still love the things that you have. Firstly, I think that you need to  look at what you do have. You may be surprised when you take everything out the volume of clothes you have. You may find that you have several pairs of jeans or black trousers and how many of each do you need? If something does not bring you joy by making you look and feel fabulous then it must go. Ask yourself these questions

  • Do I love it or is it outdated?
  • Is this something useful that I want to keep?
  • Is it in one of my colours or styles that suit my figure
  • Would you buy this item again?
  • Am I holding onto this because of the memory it holds?

One person’s casts offs are another person’s gem. Just because it no longer fits you, or you do not have a use for it, does not mean it has to be thrown away. Charity shops are always happy to take clothes that still have some life left in them. Alternatively, you can sell them yourself on eBay or similar sights and get something towards you buying something new. Sort your clothes into piles of

  • Sell online via eBay or similar
  • Pass onto a friend

You need to let go of the emotional attachment to the clothes. I have known some clients to take photographs to remind them of items they could not let go of. Others to store clothes that no longer fit them away in a case in the hope that if they lose weight, they can retrieve them. I never think that is a good idea but if that is what you would like to do, and they are taken out of the main wardrobe it is an option. My question to you would be why are you so attached to something that no longer serves you?

The advantages of a slimline wardrobe

  • It is easier to see what you do have
  • A more streamlined wardrobe
  • A wardrobe of clothes that you love and love wearing
  • You are wearing everything you have in your wardrobe
  • You have room to add to new items.

Owning less items perhaps means that you can spend more, on each individual item, as you are going to get so much wear out of each piece. With all this talk about land mines being full of disposal fashion perhaps now is the time to think of purchasing better made clothes that will wear better. Just a thought.

I hope I have given you food for thought. Most ladies wear 20% of their wardrobe 80% of the time. Let’s change that and not hold onto things that no longer serve us. Clothes that just lie at the back of the wardrobe and are never worn. Make some space to make getting dressed each day easier.
