Summer is approaching fast! So, there is no better time to revamp your wardrobe ready for the heatwave. Whether you want to start afresh and buy new products or repurpose your old ones, the choice is yours. Styling your wardrobe doesn’t have to just be about getting new clothes, it’s also about organizing your space, allowing you to see the clothes you’ve already got and work with them. If you’re looking for handy tips to get you ready for the summer months, read on.
Pinpoint your style
We’ve all been there; we latch onto new clothing trends, but we soon get bored of our new purchases. Inevitably, our new clothes sit in our wardrobe waiting to be worn, but sadly, the chances are, they’ll never see the light of day.
So, what do we do about this? Well, one sure-fire way to get your wardrobe in check is to pinpoint your style. Knowing and understanding your style will ensure you make smart purchases in the future.
Build a capsule wardrobe
A capsule wardrobe is essentially a set of clothes that can be worn in different combinations. Each item of clothing in your capsule should compliment others, making it easy to form new outfits from the same set of clothes. Usually, people choose around 10-20 items of clothing for their capsule wardrobe that can be added to overtime. So, why not consider this idea for the summer months? Not only is it convenient, but also saves you money.
Donate your old clothes
When giving your wardrobe a refresh, you might come across clothes that you haven’t worn in years or items that you simply don’t like anymore. Well, instead of throwing them away, donate them. Donating your clothes offers a clean slate to start building your summer style whilst doing a good deed.
Reorganize your wardrobe
When your wardrobe is a mess, it can be hard to know exactly what you’ve got in it. You never know, you might have some hidden gems tucked away that you forgot existed. You must have a space big enough for your clothes as jamming them all in a small space won’t help you get your clothes ready for summer. Fitted wardrobes are ideal as you can section off space for each season. For example, move your summer clothes to the main wardrobe and tuck those winter woollies away.
