Slim-lining your wardrobe; some tips to help battle the bulging closet

Posted on May 13, 2015 at 8:22 am

There is always a moment in life when you open the wardrobe door, only to proclaim that “there’s nothing to wear” even when there are clothes positively bursting out at the seams. If you are one of these people, have you considered creating a capsule wardrobe?

Although it may seem drastic, reducing your clothing options down to between 10-20 items can really help those who struggle to find an appropriate outfit each day. By keeping the colour palette fairly neutral, the owner gradually accumulates fewer, better quality items which can be mix and matched with each other. The theory is that if each item can been worn in several different combinations, fewer items are required for an almost endless wardrobe.

To begin with, choose a couple of pairs of good quality jeans, 2-5 tops which can be worn with either pair, a jacket or a coat. Shoes can be a pair of heels, boots and sandals.
