Before we know it, a new year will arrive, which is the perfect time to clear out the old and bring in the new. We often use the first months of the new year to clear our home of trash and clutter, but it is also a time to take stock of our wardrobe. Throughout the year, we collect lots of garments which we may or may not wear, and afterward, our wardrobe becomes so clogged that we don’t know what we have in there. If your wardrobe and style need an overhaul, it’s time to take control. This guide outlines how to revamp your wardrobe on a budget without breaking the bank.
Conduct a wardrobe assessment
You might be surprised just how much you are holding onto that you thought you disposed of a long time ago. Go through your wardrobe and find out exactly what you have, what you still wear, what you can lose, and what you need to buy. Decide what it is you want to achieve with your new wardrobe.
Get rid of ill-fitting clothes
We are all guilty of holding onto clothes that don’t fit us in the hope that one day we might slim down enough to wear them. There really is no point. Not only should you be focused on celebrating the way your body looks now so you can feel good about yourself, but even if you did lose weight, you would want to invest in new clothes anyway.
Sell unwanted items
While some clothes will be disposed of and others sent to the thrift store, you may have some items which are valuable. There are lots of selling platforms out there which enable people to sell designer items securely. You can then use the extra cash to buy a new wardrobe.
Do some online window shopping
When it is time to start shopping, it is best to start online. From the comfort of home, you can browse hundreds of brands and styles of clothing, and you can compare prices. Look at celebrities for styling ideas and consider which shops you would like to visit.
Look for sales and coupons
Almost all clothing retailers run sales and promotions, so it’s worth waiting before making a purchase if you can. Holidays and the change of the season are good times to look for deals, but you might be able to find online coupons for major brands, such as Macys coupons.
Rather than buying lots of cheap clothes which will not last long, try to invest in high-quality clothes which you can wear time and time again in a variety of different settings. You can often find high-quality garments at much cheaper prices in thrift stores if you are willing to put the time in.
Create a minimalist wardrobe
It is much easier to manage a wardrobe when you take a minimalist approach. Instead of buying lots of different garments in a range of colors, styles, and patterns, opt for simple block colors that can be easily matched together. You can then accessorize to dress the outfit up or down.
