January is upon us and I am getting ready to have the mother of all clothing clear outs. Now that I am not pregnant or breastfeeding, I want to finally create a capsule wardrobe. I am looking at creating a main one with pieces I can wear and adapt all year round, and then bits that are seasonally appropriate when needed.
When you open your closet doors every morning do you feel peaceful or overwhelmed? If you’ve ever thought, “I have nothing to wear” before you decide on an outfit, your mornings may be more stressful than they need to be. Advertisements teach us to want more, to want new, to need the same exact item in every colour available. In this article I want to show you in which areas decluttering your wardrobe can bring you consciousness and how to start the process.
Having a clear out and trying to reduce our clothing always makes us more conscious of what we have and what we need. We question items we have bought in the past. We automatically become more aware of the pieces of clothing that we really like and ones we have never even worn.
You feel beautiful and confident in everything because they are all pieces you love to wear over and over – It’s why you chose them!
Time & Attention
You save yourself so much time and attention every morning when deciding on what to wear. This is because now you have a limited choice and everything goes with everything!
Save More Time.
You can save yourself even more time by choosing your clothes that are well made. Clothing that will last longer and save you time fixing them or replacing them over and over.
You save yourself money. Not only because you own fewer items of clothing, but because you buy buying unnecessary or non matching items.
Less Clothing = More Space
Because of the fewer items you have in your wardrobe, you now have more space for other things. Or even just more space! Just because you make space doesn’t mean you need to fill it with something else.
As you continue to dress with less, you’ll figure out what you really enjoy wearing, and what best fits your body & your lifestyle. It’s not that your clothes will look better on you, but you will look better in your clothes & more comfortable in your own skin.
Create your own capsule wardrobes and if you fancy it, have a look at a few minimalist fashion challenges. Ones such as project 333 – you have 33 items that you wear for 3 months or ones like 10×10 where you were just 10 items for 10 days! Let us know if you have ago at any of these! We would love to see them!
