HOW TO: Downsize Your Wardrobe & Look Good All the Time

Hello fashionistas, do you have too much stuff hanging in the closet? Today I have a few great tips to share with you on how you can Downsize your wardrobe without compromising your amazing style!! If you closet need a little help, you don't have to wait until spring to do a little closet cleaning.... Here are four ways to downsize your closet and still look good all year around!

Pare Down the Closet

Stop justifying the mess. If you're telling yourself  "I might need this one day" or "It was expensive, I have to keep it", just stop. Any items living in your closet for more than six months without being worn should be removed, unless they have a sentimental value. Sort through your shoes, bags and clothing and decide which items you will donate, sell, give away to friends... You can even host a Clothing Exchange! If you're thinking about selling your gently used items, check out the Poshmark app to list your clothing and accessories. The easy-to-use app lets you showcase your items, and you earn more money than you would at a consignment shop.


One In, One Out

Let's face it, just because the closet is full doesn't mean you're going to stop shopping. I am so guilty of this! However, over-shopping and not addressing a stuffed-to-the-brim closet only adds to the problem. Downsize and stay on trend by following the one-in, one-out rule. It's simple - for each item you purchase, one item that's already in your closet MUST come out. I know that can be tough, especially if you have already downsized, but following this rule will make you more mindful about your purchases! As well, it will help you keep the clutter down in your closet.

Stick to the Staples

Every woman has her favorite accessory. Whether a watch or a handbag, a statement necklace or pair of heels, one fabulous item can help to define your style. If you haven't found your go-to item, consider a luxury handbag. Coach, one of the most recognized leather goods brands in the world, has a variety of beautifully crafted shoulder bags to choose from. For a polished look, go for a glove tanned leather. Or add color to your wardrobe with a black cherry pebble leather number.

A statement necklace can also take your outfit to the next level. A little extra bling around your neck pairs well with casual T-shirts, flirty dresses and even work wear. Choose a neutral color or a metallic so that you can make a statement with a variety of different outfits.

Think Multi-Purpose

If you're strapped for space, you might want to think about purchasing clothes that serve double duty. Think convertible dresses that can be worn multiple ways. By adding a few different styles or colors of convertible dresses to your wardrobe, you're really adding a month's worth of outfits to your closet, without taking up more closet space.

Instead of buying trendy colors and styles, look for basics like black, grays and neutrals for a more versatile wardrobe. These colors can be paired and worn with more outfits than out-there colors or patterns. Then accent these basics with less expensive, trendy accessories - scarves, costume jewelry, belts - that you can change out from season to season!

Hope you found these ideas helpful! Please feel free to share how any tips you have found or use to keep your closet from over-flowing, while still keeping your fashionista status on par! ♥
