Wardrobe Makeover


DETOX     DE-CLUTTER    RECYCLE    RE-WORK    RE-DISCOVER

A major step your wardrobe makeover is to assess your existing wardrobe and then eliminate all the things that are of no use to you.  Make this a habit at the beginning of each season.

ITEMS TO KEEP:

  • No Alterations required
  • Fit with your personality and lifestyle
  • Flatter your figure and make you feel good
  • Key capsule pieces
  • Statement and Classic trends
  • Clothes that actually fit

ITEMS THAT REQUIRE ATTENTION:

  • Fallen hems, missing buttons, zips etc
  • Require minor alterations
  • Items that need another purchase before it can be worn

ITEMS TO DONATE TO CHARITY OR SIMPLY DISCARD:

  • Too small or too large
  • Out-of-date clothes
  • Stained / marked / worn out / torn and exhausted
  • Any items that are uncomplimentary or simply don’t fit your current lifestyle
  • Unworn for three years.

QUESTIONS ASKED:

  • Have I worn it in last year?
  • Does it flatter me / Do I feel good when I wear it?
  • Does it actually go with other items in my wardrobe?
  • Does it still fit me?

So, now lets get organised……………………………….

During your wardrobe makeover, I will arrange items and organise into sections

Work / Casual / Weekend wear / Evening wear / Occasion wear

We will remove those items not in season and either store or pack them away until next season.  This will give you the clearest view of what you have to wear and will allow remaining clothes to breathe and not get crushed or damaged.

I will show you how to correctly hang and fold clothes, remove items from wire hangers and replace them on hangers specifically designed for the type of garment.  These felt hangers will allow garments to hang in their natural lines and minimise the need to re-iron your clothes.

MAKE A WARDROBE INVENTORY OF WHAT IS NEEDED:

This list will become the basis from which you will determine your clothing needs.  List items to co-ordinate with items left in wardrobe this will include a list of accessories.

All clothes that require alteration wont be placed back in wardrobe.

Identify the essentials, basic tees, blazer, new jeans, white shirt, belts etc etc.  Think back to the step where you evaluated your lifestyle and ideal wardrobe, and use this information to decide which types of items would have the biggest impact on your look right now.

Clear the clutter, this is important step in the process of reorganisation.  In every wardrobe there are clothes with invisible, guilty tags attached to them.  They lie in wait to remind you of how much money you paid for them and how few times they have been worn. These clothes will actually cost you money and they take up valuable space in your wardrobe. I will put items in your wardrobe into categories.
