Change the wardrobe in the beginning
of the new season
Winter is just around the corner and your wardrobe may be contains a mix of summer dresses and autumn clothes: it's time to change your wardrobe at the end of the season!
This is a guide for anyone who wants to arrange and maintain a neat wardrobe:
THE SAME KIND OF CLOTHES TOGETHER
Collect skirts with skirts, shirts with shirts, jackets with jackets. If you don't have enough space (you never will, you will say), divide it into categories: upper body, lower body and coats / jackets.
LIST OF GOOD AND NOT SO GOOD CLOTHES
Immediately put away the clothes that you will definitely use next year. Remember, you need to keep them clean, otherwise they will retain stains, creases and bad odors. Put aside the clothes you doubt. After 2-3 months, look at them again and if you still do not want to wear them, give it away or donate.
Give or donate clothes that A) are not fashionable; B) are old or excessively used; C) they do not fit you well or are not in your colours. However, if you answer only some of these points, you can redo them with slight adjustments or new styling ideas.
SOMETIMES THE CLOTHES COME BACK
With the change of wardrobe at the end of the season, we often encounter historical relics. Let's be honest and ask ourselves if we will ever wear them again. If the answer is NO and if the sentimental value fades with the colour, then you need to part with the past and make room (in every sense) for new things.
If you know that you will never wear some clothes, but you do not want to just throw them away because they have sentimental value, then you can create a box of memories in which to keep them. However, I recommend that you store them elsewhere so as not to clutter your wardrobe.
LET'S SORT THEM NOW
So, at this point we have the following groups of clothes: A) those that need to be washed (at home or in dry cleaning); B) those that can be slightly adjusted; C) those that you can give or donate.
To keep your clothes in good condition, fold them upside down; put them in breathable bags; store them in special clothes boxes. Avoid too thin hangers because they create creases. For drawers and shelves, take moth bags.
SHOES AND BAGS
Accessories should be subjected to the same examination as the clothes: how many times do you use them this year? Will you use them in the next few years? Are they hopelessly worn out? If they pass the test, they must be cleaned and preserved with special forms or with crumpled paper inside them.
Now the underwear. It takes up drawers, but we always carry only a few pairs. Let's say goodbye to worn or torn underwear, bras with missing straps, underwear whose size no longer suits us ... (your partner will thank you).
We got rid of unnecessary clothes, found buried treasures and restored an unexpected space. Now is the time to take stock of the situation: gaps that need to be filled. You just have to make your shopping list.
