Edit Your Wardrobe: Love It or Lose It!

By  | 

If you’re anything like me, editing your wardrobe is a task that sounds easy in theory but the execution of it? Not so much. When it comes to my wardrobe, there’s always a thing or two that I just cannot let go of, so I find myself having to edit more often. Seriously, I had a Yankees jersey that hadn’t been worn since the 90’s (and for good reason) but I just couldn’t let it go. If you also suffer from just-can’t-let-go-itis, here’s a handy infographic to help you decide what stays and what goes:

Edit Your Wardrobe: Love It or Lose It!

What say you? Can you think of anything hanging out in your closet right now that you need to lose? Can it be swapped, sold or donated? How about re-mixing an item? You could shorten the hem of a long skirt or dress, add some studs to an outdated button up or add leather sleeves to an old denim jacket. There are endless possibilities. Think about what works for your current lifestyle and your current body (you’re just torturing yourself by holding on to that dress that fit you 5 years ago in hopes that it’ll fit again one day).

Now get in there, be ruthless and whip that closet into shape! If nothing else it’ll clear the way for some new and Fab pieces *wink*.

    Even though it takes me a whole weekend, it feels so freeing! I often look at stuff like, why did I buy AND wear this?

      Right Whitney! Sometimes I have that same thought. Like, seriously, I spent money on and wore this? LOL If you ask yourself “would I buy this again” and the answer is no, it can probably go in the Lose It pile too 🙂
