As the summer months draw to an end and the weather begins to change, now is the time to start thinking about having a spring clean of your wardrobe! The change in the seasons is a great time for this, as you will also be able to pack away your summer clothes as well as having a good sort out.
Getting rid of clothes that you haven’t worn for over a year is a good idea when you are clearing your wardrobe out – it is also an opportunity to get out your winter clothing, and also get any clothes that are damaged repaired if you want to keep them or take them to be recycled if you don’t.
Although this can be a bit of a chore, it is really worth it as it saves you rooting through lots of clothes that you don’t really like and makes getting ready in the morning a piece of cake. So, it is a good idea to spend time doing this every six months or so as this means that your wardrobe will not get overly cluttered.
Once you have spent time going through the wardrobe and getting rid of the things that you don’t want to keep, then it is a good idea to store summer clothing away as then it won’t be taking up any unnecessary space in the wardrobe. A lot of people find the vacuum bags really helpful for this as you can store a lot in them without taking up a lot of room.
You can then work out which items you would like to replace or update and what you want to add to your wardrobe. Choosing classic pieces that match well with other items in your wardrobe is a good idea, and choose good quality items too, like this Superdry menswear www.ejmenswear.com/men/superdry which will last longer than cheaper clothing.
Factor in the things that you need that fit in with your lifestyle – for example what do you wear to work on a daily basis? Do you spend a lot of time outdoors? Do you usually wear more casual clothing, or do you need to dress up quite often for events? All of these things are important to recognise before going shopping for new clothing as it will stop you from purchasing clothes on the spur of the moment or because they were in the sale – even if something is on offer, it is only a bargain if you need it!
If you are stuck in a bit of a style rut, it is a good idea also to have a look at magazines and clothing inspiration on social media sites like Instagram and Pinterest so you can get a good idea of what sort of things you would like to add to your wardrobe before going shopping. Try things on, and experiment with different looks too before you commit to buying anything as you may be surprised!
