Most people tend to buy clothes they can’t really wear, simply because it’s easy to fall for a fashion fad that easily gets old. To avoid filling up spaces in your wardrobe, here are 5 wardrobe resolutions so you can get ready for the next fashion season after the New Year.
Buy pieces that work well on multiple occasions
A lot of people are guilty of buying an outfit for a special occasion – wedding, prom, Christmas party, etc. – without considering if they can be wearable on other occasions. To prevent adding up items that you can’t really wear on other outings, try to shop for dressier pieces so you’ll have more versatile items to work on. Always opt for simple and classic outfits that you can wear over and over again.
Make sure you get the right fit
Don’t hold on to the outfits that don’t fit you in the hope that they will fit again someday. Also, don’t buy clothes of smaller sizes as a motivation to lose weight or because they’re on sale. Be realistic to save space on your dresser. If it doesn’t fit, toss it.
Only buy or keep items you’ve proven to suit you
It’s easy to keep items that don’t suit you just because they look pretty. You might be planning to buy a trendy outfit because they looked good on someone. How it suits you is the key. But how to shop clothes that suit you? Try them on to see how they look and fit. If not, might as well spend your money on the latest casual fashion trends you’ve proven to work wonderfully on your figure. If you already have unused items in your wardrobe, consider selling or donating them to charity.
Don’t fall for cheap items on sale
Big discounts are tempting but you don’t want to fall for those. You might impulse buy and add up items in your wardrobe that you don’t really need. However, if you feel that there’s an item on sale that you can use over and over again, go ahead and make that purchase.
Discard old items you don’t have a use for
Separate old clothing pieces from the ones you normally use. Sell or give them away to people who need them to free up a lot of space in your closet. This way, the next time you add something new, you’d have a lot of space to use for organization.
