When Should You Purge Clothes From Your Closet?

Have you started to notice your closet is packed with all types of clothes you thought you’d wear? You have shoes, hats, swimsuits, sleeveless tops, sundresses and even a pair of sunnies you never touched. In fact two summers has gone by and you never worn them at all ( tags still on) or you wore them once.

It’s time to purge the closet from summer clothes. Anything you didn’t wear or barely wore the last two summers should  go! It’s closet rules. You may have bought it compulsively, because it was only $5 bucks. No matter the reason, the fact is you obviously  don’t like it that much. You may say, “well if I get rid of it, my closet will look bare.” You only need the things you want and love enough to wear. Are you still with me? Stay focused on summer clothes. Be brutally honest with yourself. You don’t need to impress anyone with a closet full of things you don’t find flattering enough to wear. I think you get the gist.

Clear out the summer things on a day, when you aren’t in a rush . Make sure you’re in the mood for it. Otherwise, you will not do a good assessment. In that pile of clothes, shoes and accessories should be things that never fit correctly in the first place. For instance the shoes with your heel hanging on the edge, the shoes thats too tight, sunnies you bought because Sarah bought a pair, the pants that are three sizes too small, because you were going to loose weight 5 years ago. You know that top is too big and you’ll never get it altered. Get out of here!!

Get a large trash bag and toss it all in. Nope, its not going to the garbage. There are tons of people that need these things. We just dealt with hurricanes Harvey and Irma. Do a good deed and donate. jakob-owens-91197onur-bahcivancilar-140823.jpg

The Boxy Cable Knit Sweater

Clothing should be a means to make you look and feel great. Weather you realize it or not, there are some mistakes you may be making. Its nice to have knowledge of the latest fashions, but everything you see in the magazines isn’t for everyone. Also be aware some things aren’t for anyone. Have you seen pieces such as that? it makes you wonder what the designer was thinking.

Since fall is creeping our way, lets look at the cable knit sweater. Its heavy, and admittedly it does the job to keep me warm. However, it can be one of the most strangest looking sweaters when worn. What happen to my waistline? It disappeared in the sweater. The cable knit is the most frumpy sweater one can wear for sure. Look at it paired with my Ann Taylor A-line skirt. The contrast is beautiful , but the look, not so much!

The sweater needs to fit tighter down the side of the seams.  It would have worked if it were lose fitting without the elastic at the hemline. Perhaps it would look nice with slits on each side of the sweater. This would cause it to drape the skirt more. This is too heavy of a sweater , it’s weighing me down. The sweater is a size small, but you’d never know by the fit. Never forget the female shape when choosing a sweater.  Remember quality over quantity. Choose your clothes wisely. They should always look flattering to your figure. untitled-1477
