As you know, your appearance helps shape the way people perceive you, that’s why it is so important to dress according the places you’re going (you wouldn’t wear shorts and a sleeveless top to an interview right?
Here are a few suggestions to try and refresh your wardrobe for the New Year without spending a lot of money.
First of all, we recommend packing away things that don’t fit; you aren’t going to wear soon, but want to keep or things that you will only wear next season. Pro tip: pack some bags with items to donate to charity. You might also want to separate items that need to be dry-cleaned and one for clothes that need to go to the tailor.
If you are one of those people who likes to keep everything and gets attached to items easily you might want to consider throwing away.
Items that don’t fit or don’t make you look your best, outdates styles (yes, that outfit your wore at fresher’s needs to go), items that still have tags and are over a year old, items that are ripped and finally anything that isn’t comfortable or you haven’t worn in the last 2-3 years.
Now that you know what to get rid of your next step should be organizing your clothes by type, event or colour so it’s easier to get what you want quickly. Put what your best items in the front so they’re easier to reach.
Now that the boring part is over, you should definitely go out and do some shopping because you and your wardrobe deserve it.
This is the year of denim and we advise to get pieces with worn-in quality and darker indigo shades as a starting point. 2017 is the year of standing out by personalizing all your items: embellishments, repairs, rinse and bleach washes will help you do that.
