The Wardrobe Clear-Out

The Wardrobe Clear-Out

Last week, I gave my wardrobe a big cleanse and clear-out. A few days before, my sister had sent me an article all about capsule wardrobes. A capsule wardrobe is something I had heard of but wasn’t too familiar with, and so I loved reading the article she sent.

A capsule wardrobe is;

“a practice of editing your wardrobe down to your favourite clothes, remixing them regularly and shopping less often and more intentionally”

After reading the article, I decided that I would give my wardrobe a capsule-wardrobe-inspired clear-out. In today’s blog post, I wanted to chat through each of the steps of my wardrobe cleanse so you can see how I was inspired by a capsule wardrobe. I took my clothes one draw at a time and went through each piece of clothing one-by-one.


Step 1:

Do I want to keep this piece of clothing? Do I wear it often and know what I can wear it with? If the answer is yes, put it in the ‘to keep’ pile.

Step 2:

If the answer is no; is there any way I can recycle this piece of clothing? Maybe make a crop-top out of a t-shirt or change up a piece of clothing to give it a refresh? If the answer is yes, put it in the ‘to be altered’ pile.

Step 3:

If the answer is no; put this piece of clothing in a pile ready to donate.

By the end of this step-by-step process, I was ready to put the clothes that were in the ‘to-keep’ pile back in my wardrobe. I spent some time re-organising my wardrobe at this stage so that everything was a bit more orderly than it had been before. What I loved about being inspired by a capsule wardrobe was that it meant I took each piece of clothing and really thought through what was best to do with it. It means that now I can make the most of my wardrobe and also means that I have a fun project of recycling some old clothes to get to in the next week or so.

I filmed the whole process of my wardrobe cleanse and clear-out, so, if you are interested in seeing more about it, I will leave the video below;
