7 Ways To Give Your Closet A Spring Detox

In between snow boots, sundresses and wool socks, my closet is a bit confused. With the new season kicking in, keeping your closet in check is always a plus. It helps you get ready faster and lets you find pieces easily. Your “I have nothing to wear” will quickly change into “what shall I wear today?” with these simple tips.

  1. Keep your closet seasonal. No, you will not need your fur coat in the middle of April, I promise.
  2. Get rid of plastic and wire hangers. Switch them out for velvet ones instead! This gives your more space, always a must. Plus it makes your closet look much more luxurious.
  3. If it doesn’t fit you, get rid of it. Call them what you want; Your dream jeans, skinny shorts, etc. If you really think you’ll be using them again, keep a pair if you want. Don’t put them in your main set of clothes though, store them.
  4. When sorting out clothes, make two piles: A) donate B) keep. Bonus: alterations & tailoring
  5. If you haven’t worn it in the last year, get rid of it. Out of sight, out of mind.
  6. Store sentimental clothes in a box. This can be sorority tees, races, souvenirs, all that stuff you always think twice about donating J
  7. Clean out your shoes and accessories too! When’s the last time you wore those heels, or that necklace?

Remember to always ask yourself, When’s the last time I wore this? and Will I wear this again? Follow these simple tips and your closet will get the spring detox it deserves.
