Wardrobe Malfunction

organising your wardrobeMy wardrobe was starting to get rather cluttered I noticed. I reached and pulled out a jacket that I had not worn since I was in my teens! With a grim expression I decided to dedicate my afternoon to sorting out my wardrobe.

 

Jeans that were too big, jackets that no longer suited my tastes, shorts that looked more like sacks for potatoes and bags that could have belonged to Vicki Pollard ended up on my floor.

 

I pondered to myself how I let it reach this far. How on earth did I manage to hoard items of clothing I did not even wear anymore?

 

By the end of the day, which was a long day indeed, I was left with two large bin bags of unwanted clothing, I shuddered. I made a silent vow never to let my wardrobe get out of hand and in a state of turmoil. Now it is a lot more organised, where I am easily pleased, and proud, of its appearance.

 

However, I am sure that I am not the only one guilty of abandoning the state of their wardrobe, so below are a few helpful tips on how to avoid your wardrobe getting out of hand…

 

1) Organisation is key…

Placing items in your wardrobe in a certain order will not only help you to find things a lot quicker, but you can see what items you do not need more of, and what you do need to buy.

 

2) Separating accessories…

Having a separate place to store your handbags, purses, belts, scarves, etc, will help you to keep on top of things. You will also be less likely to buy another black bag or a similar belt to the one you have already at home. It is always easy buying similar items to what you already have at home in your wardrobe.

 

3) Buy key classics…

Buying that classic LBD (Little Black Dress), black clutch, beige trench coat or suede ankle boots will always remain a fixture in your wardrobe. By stocking up on items that will never date your wardrobe and will always remain strong, leaving you only to build up on outfits. Buying wild, printed dresses or shiny PVC boots will only end up crumpled at the back of your wardrobe, taking up space.

 

4)  Aim for an open wardrobe…

If possible, aim to invest in an open wardrobe. You can view your clothing a lot easier and will not be prone to forgetting about items which you already have enough of.

 

5) Prepare to have a clear out every few months…

Aim to stay on top of your wardrobe by giving away clothes that no longer fit or which you do not like to friends, family or charity. It will help you to maintain the order of your wardrobe. You can also sell items that you do not like or wear on eBay, which gives you more money to invest in new clothes!

 

Hopefully these tips will help to stop women’s wardrobes from getting out of hand and taking over the whole room.
