There’s no better time to tackle wardrobe organizing and regenerating your wardrobe in the first new months of the year. Wardrobe detoxing is necessary. Every one to two years a closet or wardrobe needs to be detoxed. By detoxing your wardrobe, you can actually save some money and extra time in the morning. In this busy life we live in, who wouldn’t want that?

Here is an easy guide that can help you detox your wardrobe:

Firstly, empty your closet and take everything out of your wardrobe

Taking everything out of your wardrobe will help you brainstorm and decide how you want to arrange your clothing items in your wardrobe or closet.

Be brutally honest with yourself

Ask yourself, am I really going to wear some of these items? Because let’s face it! Some clothing items have been in our closets for close to two years, and haven’t been worn at all in the past two years.

Single out all clothing items you wear every time or regularly

Clothing items you wear every day are the backbone of your closet. Because these are fashion items your wear almost every week.

Single out and pack aside all clothing items you haven’t worn the whole of last year or have worn once the previous year

In this case, you have to be brutally honest with yourself. There are some fashion items we love in our closets, which don’t fit or suit our bodies anymore. Yet, we still keep them in our closet with high hopes that maybe someday they will fit. That clothing item you are keeping in your wardrobe is taking up space for nothing. Let it go! The golden rule is to never hold on to something when it doesn’t fit.

Questions you need to ask yourself:

1. When last did I wear this?

2. Does it fit well?

3. Why am I keeping this item in my closet?

4. Who can I sell it to?

After asking yourself these questions, you know what deserves to be in your wardrobe and what doesn’t.  

Reorganize your wardrobe

Reorganizing your wardrobe frequently helps you recognize what to keep and what to let go of. It makes it very simple to navigate your closet. Organizing your wardrobe will help you declutter and make space for new clothes. After decluttering and organizing your wardrobe, you will see that now your wardrobe consists of clothing items that you wear regularly, items you love, and items that fit well.

When reorganizing your wardrobe:

  • Hang your fashion items. By hanging your clothing, it makes every clothing item easy to see.
  • Try as much as you can to colour coordinate your clothes when organizing your wardrobe.

After organizing your closet or wardrobe, you will realize that most of the indecisiveness you had with your clothing was mostly caused by the lack of wardrobe detoxing. Try as much as you can to keep your closet or wardrobe neat and easy to navigate.
