The freezing winter days are finally in the past, and with April being here, it is the best time to clean out our closets and to rethink our style. Put your oversized woolen overcoat and your puffer jacket in the box, as you will not need them until the end of the year, and start looking for the delicate, thin summer clothes to wear during the summer heat. If you’re having trouble transitioning your wardrobe from season to season and are not sure what exactly you need to do in order to have the proper garments prepared, this article was made just for you!
So where exactly do we need to start our spring closet cleaning? Well, first of all, you need to have a clear idea of what exactly you have and in order to do so, you should take out all the clothes that you own in the depths of your wardrobe. You’ll be surprised by how much clothing and accessories you have and how you’ve forgotten that you own more than half of it. Take everything out of your wardrobe and make sure to count how many pairs of each item you own so that you could have a better sense of what outfits you can put together and what other pieces of clothing you would need to purchase. But don’t rush to simply throw away all the clothes that you’re not wearing anymore. Instead, look up different ways to recycle them, as well as places where you can donate those that are still in a good condition but don’t fit your style anymore. This way, you will not only declutter your wardrobe, but also minimize your waste and be more eco-friendly.
After making the inventory and getting rid of the garments that you won’t wear anymore, it’s time to think about what style you want to embrace this season. Maybe you’re looking forward to dressing up more feminine and would like to have more dresses, blouses, and skirts into your closet, or maybe your lifestyle makes you choose comfort and practicability over the latest trends. Either way, put up a list of all the things that you’d like to buy, as well as the outfits that you can create by mixing them together; a vision board might help as well. And although we all wish for sunny days, spring can be very unpredictable, so make sure to keep some warmer clothes, such as your jackets and wool jumper, like the Irish sweaters, to stay in your wardrobe for a little more. Speaking of sweaters, if your jumper is made of the right, natural fabric, such as merino wool, you can actually wear it in summer as well, as it will help you regulate your body temperature and keep you warm, but not too hot when the nights get chilly. If you don’t own one yet, choose an Irish sweater for ladies from a spring collection; it will make a great addition to your wardrobe.
Finally, the best part of the plan: go shopping! If you are the type of superhuman that finds everything they need in a single store, lucky you, but if you’re like the rest of us, you might need to dedicate a few days to this activity. Remember to also look up the online stores, as well as the thrift shops, since there are lots of hidden gems that you can find there. A great tip is to shop for outfits rather than individual pieces, as this way you will be assured that you know how to pair your clothing and you won’t suffer from the I-have-nothing-to-wear syndrome. It will also be much easier if your entire outfit is mostly composed of one or two main colors, such as white, beige, and gray. This way, it will be very simple to create both casual and more formal looks, such as for school or the workplace. By following these simple and fun steps, you won’t even notice how your wardrobe will be completely changed and how you’ll immediately be in a better mood, ready to conquer the world with your new looks!
