The first day of Spring has passed and it's in with the new and out with the old! We are just starting our spring cleaning of our closets and sometimes it's just hard to have any idea where to start. How do you know whether to get rid of those jeans that you spent a ton of money on or that sweater that your aunt gave you? We made a guide to help you clean your closet and keep you in style all year round.
Questions to keep in mind:
When was the last time I wore this?
If you find yourself going through your closet and holding things up and wondering the last time you wore it, get rid of it. Chances are if you haven't worn this piece of clothing in the last 12 months, you'll probably never wear it again. Even though you might love this piece of clothing or your favorite event it's taking up space in your closet and keeping you from buying new things. Make some memories in new pieces.
Does this fit me?
Even though you might have spent a lot of money on a certain piece, it doesn't mean that you should keep it if it doesn't fit you. Sometimes we have connections to certain pieces in our closet and feel like we should keep them because of something that happened in it, because we love it so much, or because we spent a lot of money on it. However, if this piece of clothing doesn't fit you, you shouldn't keep it.
If I was shopping right now, would I buy this again?
When you're getting down to the end of the cleaning and really having a hard time on whether to keep something or not, ask yourself if you would buy this item again. If you were to go out shopping, would you repurchase this piece if you didn't already have it. Keeping up with current trends is important and if you don't feel the same about a piece of clothing as you did when you bought it.. chances are you shouldn't keep it!
