How To Edit One's Wardrobe
This article brings out some strategies on how to edit one's wardrobe. A wardrobe is really a mirror to one's personality. Its upkeep and editing from time to time can save a lot of money and embarrassments. Here are a few tips to edit one's wardrobe.
- Keeping it slim: A big task in editing one's wardrobe is shaving off the unnecessary and the unworn articles of clothing. If you haven't worn it in a few years, you probably never will. So get rid of the 80's and 90's clothing, unless of course you only wear vintage. By all means, edit away the clothes with holes, stains and loose threads even if they were once your "lucky" clothes.
- Arranging is editing: Keep your favorite pieces of clothing in a more accessible part of your wardrobe. Editing one's wardrobe also involves keeping the clothes almost catalogued. The denims, the cottons, the silks, the party wear, the work wear, the "date" clothing and the more formal clothes need to be in their specific areas. This helps remove the stress when getting ready before an event or an outing.
- Keeping up: A huge part of editing one's wardrobe is keeping up with the latest trends in fashion. Clothes, even if they are new but not totally in vogue, need to be donated. Edit your wardrobe of last season's left overs.
- Know your body: One needs to keep abreast with current fashion trends, but one surely mustn't fall prey to pressures. Do not own something that does not go with your body type or personality just because everyone else has it. Edit your wardrobe of "peer pressure" clothing items. Not everyone can pull off leather pants!!
- Keep them in good condition: Clothes, no matter how much they cost, need to be well maintained. A wardrobe with badly washed/unwashed/unpressed clothes reeks of sloppiness. So edit out of your wardrobe the unwashed, untidy, and smelly clothes. A clean and well kept wardrobe says volumes about the kind of person you really are. Throw some mothballs in, a fragrance, and edit your wardrobe of careless upkeep.
