How to properly clear out your wardrobe for the new year

As the new year dawns, many of us are inspired to make positive changes in our lives. One impactful way to start the year on a refreshing note is by decluttering your wardrobe. Clearing out the excess and organising your clothing space not only streamlines your daily routine but also promotes a sense of renewal and mindfulness. Here's a guide on how to properly declutter your wardrobe and set the stage for a more intentional and simplified approach to fashion in the coming year.

Assess your goals

Before diving into the decluttering process, take a moment to reflect on your wardrobe goals for the new year. Consider your lifestyle, fashion preferences, and any changes in your personal or professional life. Are there specific styles you want to embrace? Are there clothing items that no longer align with your current self? Setting clear goals will guide your decluttering decisions.

Seasonal evaluation

Take into account the season and climate as you declutter. If you're entering a new season, assess whether your wardrobe is prepared for it. Consider packing away off-season clothing to create more space for the items you'll be wearing in the coming months. This also allows you to better appreciate and access the clothes suitable for the current season.

Quality over quantity

Focus on quality rather than quantity. Assess the condition of each item and prioritise well-made pieces that will stand the test of time. Invest in classic staples that can be mixed and matched, creating versatile outfits. Let go of items that are worn out or no longer align with your style. For any items that no longer fit, if there’s something you love you can take them to a seamstress and see if they’d be suitable for alterations.

The three-pile strategy

Divide your clothing into three piles: keep, donate/sell, and discard. Be honest with yourself about whether you genuinely wear and enjoy each item. Clothes that no longer serve you can find new life with someone else through donation or resale. Discard items that are damaged beyond repair or are no longer wearable.

Organise efficiently

Once you've decluttered, organise your wardrobe in a way that makes it easy to find and access your clothes. Use storage solutions such as bins, baskets, and dividers to keep items separated and visible. Arrange clothing by category, colour, or season to create a visually appealing and functional space.

Mindful purchases going forward

As you move into the new year, adopt a more mindful approach to shopping. Before making a purchase, consider whether the item complements your existing wardrobe and aligns with your style goals. Or think about if you have something similar that you could have alterations to that would work instead of buying something new. Aim for quality over quantity, and be conscious of the impact of your choices on the environment.

Starting the year with a clear wardrobe 

Starting the new year with a decluttered wardrobe is a powerful way to refresh your space and cultivate a more intentional approach to fashion. May the new year bring you a wardrobe filled with pieces that inspire confidence and align with the person you're becoming.
