As the season changes, it’s time for another wardrobe declutter. Considering the amount of stuff we accumulate, it can be a daunting task. A good edit is worth it in the end, however… just think of all the space you’ll free up! Plus, a more streamlined wardrobe means your style will improve. Here are our top five items we think you need to get rid of first.
Clothes That Don’t Fit
You don’t need daily reminders of the weight you’ve gained! If it doesn’t fit, it doesn’t flatter so it needs to go.
Suffer for fashion? We don’t think so! Let go of any shoes that hurt – if you’ve given it time to break them in and they are still unbearable, it’s time to say goodbye.
That special-occasion dress you’ve worn once and never plan on wearing again? Donate it to a charitable cause. Princess Project accepts dresses for less privileged matriculants to attend their matric dance in style.
We all understand the unwanted gift guilt, but if you’re never going to wear that paisley blouse you got for your birthday, let it go.
Faded Costume Jewellery
Costume jewellery has a short lifespan. Wear yours to your hearts content (or until the gold comes off), then give it the boot!
