Spring Cleaning: Tips for Editing Your Wardrobe

With the unprecedented state of things and the necessity to stay home when able, you may need some ideas on how to keep the mood light and keep the mind productive. Consider the state of our closets, too. After the long winter stretch, you’ve probably accumulated pieces no longer in use, prompting no better time than the present to declutter your space.

How can you get started? What’s the method for determining what to discard vs. your forever staples? Well, press play on an upbeat playlist, dig into your closet and read on for tips to accomplish your best spring clean-out yet.

Organize your products by item types first: sweaters, coats, blouses, pants, etc. Once in order, a natural category to tackle first is winter coats. Set key pieces aside for storage, fold up bulky sweaters, and focus on bringing spring/summer items to the forefront instead. Use this off-season as a time to clean/polish favorite boots or prep to send them out for repair when sandal season approaches. Have a box or bags ready to place items in for donation.

To Keep or Not to Keep?
It’s all about your intuition. Figure out if an item truly makes you happy, especially if it’s associated with fond moments or memories. How much an item had cost or where had you bought it from shouldn’t sway this decision—I’m a firm believer in quality, and if a piece is great, it’s great no matter the label. Stains or holes? It’s time to discard those items and consider replacing them in the future if well-loved. Can’t make a decision? Consult and have a mini fashion show with a friend over FaceTime to determine whether or not to keep. If an item hasn’t been worn in a while or no longer fits, I suggest that donation is the best option to benefit another’s wardrobe and make them happy.
