Read any style advice book or blog (why, you’re reading one right now), particularly the advice focusing on style makeovers, and one of the first steps we’ll recommend is editing your wardrobe.
And by “editing,” we mean “getting rid of stuff”–clothes you either don’t wear or shouldn’t be wearing.
(For an extreme example, think of any episode of “What Not To Wear”; right at the beginning, Stacy and Clinton take their style-challenged client’s entire wardrobe and throw it in a trash can. Now that’s editing.)
So how do you edit your wardrobe, anyway? There are a variety of ways to go about it, and here are some of my favorites.
My 5 favorite posts of wardrobe editing advice
- Getting rid of what doesn’t fit.
- What if your wardrobe only had 10 items?
- 5 steps to redefining your wardrobe.
- Edit it and forget it.
- Edit your closet by taking a wardrobe vacation.
Regardless of the method you employ, the most important part is setting aside the time and just doing it.
Well, that and a nice glass of Riesling to go with it. (Maybe that’s just me!)
