The answer to “I have nothing to wear? Declutter!

Do you ever find yourself delving into your wardrobe and screaming “I HAVE NOTHING TO WEAR”?  Simply because you can’t see the outfit within the hundreds of items you own. Well I can reassure you that you are not alone. In fact, women on average own 100 items of clothing and only wear 20% of their wardrobe! Don’t worry, there is a simple answer to make finding that perfect outfit easy again …DECLUTTER. *Cue dramatic music*. But fear not. Here are 3 simple questions to help you be on your way to a clutter free life:   “When was the last time I wore this item?” – A generic question and if you can’t remember, say your goodbyes and have done with it. You CAN do this! The no pile awaits you …   “Does this item make me feel comfortable, confident and good about myself?” – A crucial question. If you don’t feel like a goddess, it could be time to reconsider.   “How many awesome outfits can I style from this item?” – Versatile staple items are key to minimising your wardrobe. Don’t place five of the same t-shirt into the dreaded “maybe” pile just to be on the safe side! Be ruthless.   Ebay and other online marketplaces are usually our next point of call.

Sometimes you can open your wardrobe doors and even though the wardrobe is jam packed, you can feel you have nothing to wear. We’ve all been there. Sometimes you just don’t know what to buy to make your wardrobe work. Here are 3 tips to get your wardrobe mojo flowing again – without spending a penny! Wear the clothes you are saving ‘for best’. These clothes, be it wedding outfits, a fancy top, a more expensive pair of shoes, rarely get worn and if your life is more play-dates rather than date-dates, then the odds of you wearing these items aren’t high! Make a decision to feel special and wear the things that make you look, and feel amazing. Go shopping … but don’t buy anything! I love to shop on ASOS filling my basket to the brim but not buying anything. It shows me what I am drawn to: the colours, patterns, textures of the clothes in my basket tell me a story. ASOS also lets you save items for 60 days so you can go back and look at what you’ve saved, again without making that commitment to buy. This is a great way of getting fresh ideas, pushing yourself to see how you feel about new colours and shapes. Stop comparing yourself to other people. Just STOP IT. NOW. Comparison is the thief of joy. Do you know the odds of you being born are 1 in 400 trillion? You are YOU, no-one else. So why do you want to look...
