The seasons are changing, and you’re thinking about changing your wardrobe to make it more suitable for the year 2021. If you’re living a different lifestyle than your previous years, you might seriously consider building a wardrobe from scratch. Body changes, climate changes, and your current condition might’ve also changed. You must continue living in the ‘now’ chapter of your dapper life along with these changes.
All these valid reasons are good enough to start anew or to revamp your closet. Life, fashion trends, your taste in your choices of clothes, sometimes, come and go. But one thing should remain constant–your wardrobes should always be representing your style. This is because it shows a glimpse of who you are, who you want to be, and how you want to be portrayed.
This year, don’t be afraid to make changes in your wardrobe by applying these helpful tips:
1. Set A Goal
First off on the to-do list is to set a goal of what you want to accomplish after this wardrobe makeover. Are you planning to stick to just the essentials? Are you going for a more minimalist vibe? Your goal helps you stay on track.
You need to keep in mind to aim for less than 50 varieties of clothes in your closet. It might be appropriate enough for you to play with some mix and match dress-up games. Regardless of the number of items you decide to keep, make sure they’re all worth saving space for.
To prevent yourself from taking too much time with your wardrobe planning, you can think ahead of what particular items you want to keep in your closet. Make sure they’re all from diverse categories, hence consider your usual business casual style, occasions, and events you will partake in the near future. Also, every garment should showcase your personality and it should capture your sense of style so you can easily pull off a swagger look when wearing them.
2. Let Go Of Some Items
Once your goals have been set, it’s now time to move on to the difficult stage, which is to let go of unnecessary items. When the number is set, and you’ve decided to let go of many stuff in your wardrobe, it might feel a bit depressing at first. But once you realize that they won’t be of any use anymore as they’ll just consume your space in the cabinets, then it would be easier to get rid of them one by one.
Even if you have limited closet space, you can still find ways to maximize it. A clear and more organized closet will make you feel more relaxed and less stressed in the long run. However, before you get rid of some clutters, make sure that your chosen set of clothes are enough and sustainable to give you different looks for various occasions.
When decluttering your wardrobe, always ask yourself if you’re still planning to wear that specific item. Does it fit your lifestyle and needs now? If the answer is no, give it a shove on the bag to sell or donate to the needy.
3. Think Of The Basics
As you age and change your taste in fashion, you’ll realize that essential clothing is the holy grail of your wardrobe as they’re considered crucial things. What’s good about them is that they never go out of style. Keep that white shirt, black belt, and black pants since you can always have an event perfect for it. You can also match them along with many jackets and trousers.
Thus, now is the time to invest in these basics to make your closet reasonable and genuinely wearable for everyday errands, parties, shopping, picnics, and outdoor activities. When shopping for the basics, remember to prioritize top-quality items. There’s no need to go overboard on clothes, but at least consider the material and fabric’s longevity.
4. Set Your Wardrobe Schedule
When you’re finally done segregating your wardrobe, it’s time to set a schedule on when you’re going to change it again. Since you’ve removed many items in your closet, this means that most clothes are fit for the current season or climate. So, it’s reasonable to set another wardrobe overhaul within a couple of months or at least a year.
It may take you a while to adjust to this method of wardrobe building, but once you get the hang of it, you’ll realize it’s a more efficient way of organizing your clothes and items. You can choose to schedule another wardrobe update after six months or update it when the cold season is coming.
Building your wardrobe for this year is both a significant challenge and change at the same time. But it entails many benefits, as you won’t feel stressed out with having any more space for your other relevant things in the closet. Try applying these tips, and you’ll have an intelligent wardrobe ready for this year’s seasons and events.
