In the new era of our lives, we live in the hustle and bustle of things forgetting to spend our time on some small yet crucial things to manage, and wardrobe management is among those. The art of Wardrobe management is not just a practice, but an art form of your creativity, self-expression, confidence, and organization. Wardrobe management is the practice of organizing and thoughtfully curating your styled clothes and wardrobe collections.
Here are some key points for mastering the art of wardrobe management
1. Clarify Your Fashion Sense
Define your style before starting to manage your wardrobe. Clarify your fashion style and what style of clothes suits you well giving you confidence and comfort. Ask yourself the style you want to carry and which wardrobe you prefer to use, a minimalist or a more eclectic one. Defining or clarifying your fashion style will help you determine the kind of wardrobe that will suit you the best.
2. Declutter regularly
Periodically, go through your clothing collections and donate the clothes that are in good condition but are no longer in use. The process of decluttering often helps you make space for the clothes you actually enjoy wearing and styling. Decluttering can also give you a chance to go on a “shopping spree” if you lack your favorite style of clothing collection after donating some.
3. Organize your wardrobe
Going on a shopping spree, purchasing styled pants, tops, hoodies, shorts and so many more from the shopping list. But…how are you going to organize them in your wardrobe? Okay so here I have a tip. Arrange the clothing in a particular section such as the section of pants in one, the collection of tops on one shelf, the collection of shirts in the other, and most importantly, arrange the collection of outdoor outfits and official outfits in the different sections or columns of the wardrobe. The aim of organizing clothes in your wardrobe is to save your time and energy from the hustle and bustle of finding the clothes.
4. Rotate Seasonally
Refresh your wardrobe with the new collection of clothes in the changing season. Elevate your wardrobe elegance according to seasonal collections and styles. This will also boost your fashion sense while changing your personality by carrying different outfits seasonally. You may organize and refresh your wardrobe with floral print outfits in spring and can rejuvenate the wardrobe with furry and sassy winter collection outfits in the winter.
5. Invest in quality not quantity
Always prefer quality over quantity. Do not mess up your wardrobe by buying the dresses just because they were in the sale, or were heavily discounted. Style and buy the outfit that suits you giving extra confidence and comfort and not just making your wardrobe filled to the brim. Make sure you have the essentials of the wardrobe before adding more to it such as funky t-shirts, tight-fitting pants, and shoe collections as these are the foundations of a wardrobe.
6. Mindful Shopping
Have a gaze on the collections of your wardrobe and make a shopping list of what extra outfits and dresses you require or want to add to your wardrobe. This will ensure pocket-friendly shopping, preventing impulse buying and adding a new style to complement your existing collection. Focus on the pieces that truly enhance your wardrobe. Also, remember to set a clothing budget and stick to it. This will help you prevent overspending, and a hassle-free wardrobe to organize and manage.
7. Donate and recycle
During the decluttering process, you will get plenty of clothes that are wearable but do not wish to wear anymore. Donating these clothes to charity or to recycling textiles or factories is the best idea to follow. Well, nowadays some of the apps also collect these “Not in use clothes” but in wearable condition. This will benefit others while also benefiting the textile industry and the environment.
