Keeping our closets in order is one of those tasks that seems to make its way back to our to-do list over and over again. Just when we think we’re on track, one rushed morning can cause such a mess that we’re right back at square one. Sometimes, it honestly looks like a tornado touched down in there! Thankfully, we’ve enlisted the help of Stylist and Image Consultant Laurie Brucker to give us some pointers on getting our closets in tip top shape and, more importantly, keeping them that way. Check out tip 1 and 2 below!
1) Out with the Old. It’s incredibly freeing when you take control of your wardrobe and closet. Letting go of the old items that don’t suit you anymore can be a game changer. Many times we carry emotional attachments, memories, and personal insecurities with each of our pieces. But in letting go what you don’t wear any more, what does fit, or isn’t in style anymore is just holding you back from all the fresh, newness that is awaiting for you in the world of style.
2) Enlist a cohort. Being honest with yourself, is is the hardest part about cleaning out your closet. As a personal stylist, this is why I recommend hiring a personal stylist, like myself or even getting a friend to join you so you have an outside eye on the items you are holding on to. This helps cut through the emotional aspect to your wardrobe and helps get to the reality of what is actually happening with the items in your closet.
