Have you done your spring cleaning yet? We’re specifically asking about your closet. With the transition to warm weather, now’s the perfect time to refresh your wardrobe for the season. But we know cleaning out your closet is quite the undertaking. In case you find it a little overwhelming, we’ve broken it up into a few simple steps.
Step 1: Out with the old!
The first step in refreshing your closet is getting rid of any unwanted items. Take a deep breath, be honest with yourself, and ask the tough questions: Have you worn it in the last year? Does it fit you? Is it still suitable for your personal style? If the answer is no, it's time to say goodbye.
But wait, don't just toss those clothes in the trash! Consider donating them to a local charity or thrift store or reselling them online for a little extra cash. You could even host a clothing swap party with friends and family. After all, one person’s trash could be another person’s treasure.
Step 2: Get clean and organized!
Once you've cleared out the clutter, it's time to clean and organize. Wipe down shelves and drawers, vacuum or sweep the floor, and air out the space a little. If you want to go the extra mile, consider adding some fresh lavender or eucalyptus to your closet to keep it smelling fresh.
Next, organize your clothes by category. Group all your tops together, your pants together, your dresses together, and so on. This will make it easier for you to see what you have in the future when putting together your outfits. You can even organize by color if you're feeling ambitious.
Step 3: Assess your needs!
Now that your closet is clean and organized, it's time to figure out what it’s missing. Do you need some new basics like T-shirts or jeans? Are you lacking a specific item like a blazer or sundress? Give your closet a look-through and make a list of all the items you need to fill the gaps.
Step 4: Go shopping!
The best part of refreshing your wardrobe is the last part: shopping! Head to your favorite stores or browse online to acquire those missing items from your list. Don't be afraid to try new styles or colors – it’s a closet refresh after all! And spring is a great time to experiment with bright prints and colors. You might be surprised at how much you love a new style or color that you never would have tried before.
Finally, put it all together! Now that you have your new clothes, it's time to put together some fresh spring ensembles. Try mixing and matching new items with old favorites to create a variety of outfits. And of course, don't forget to accessorize! Add a statement necklace, a colorful scarf, or a fun pair of shoes to take your looks to the next level.
