January is the time to make resolutions to continue down the road of self-improvement. As you make your list of personal goals, you may include updating the clothing in your closet. After all, fashion is ever-changing, and everyone loves to look stylish. Welcome the new year with these style tips to refresh your wardrobe!
Donate Old Clothing
You need to go through what you already have since you may find tops or other outfits you’ve forgotten about. Decide which garments you want to keep and what you can part with to make more room. Remain mindful of the dos and don’ts of donating clothes as you only want to give away items in good condition.
Begin To Rebuild
Don’t go on a spending spree to refill your closet with new clothing now that you’ve purged the old. Instead, purchase new garments with a purpose in mind. Carefully inspect clothing for color, design, and style before deciding to buy it. By taking the time to do this, you’ll have a variety of clothes to mix and match for various occasions.
Make sure your updated wardrobe has at least one fashion staple and statement piece; something like Western boots meets both needs. There are countless benefits of wearing cowboy boots, specifically that they’re stylish, comfortable, and functional!
Categorize Your Closet
Keeping your closet organized makes creating outfits a lot easier and saves time as you pick out what to wear. If you need organization ideas, consider categorizing by:
- Seasonality: Keep out of season clothes in the back of your closet.
- Clothing for the occasion: Organize according to formal, casual, business, etc.
- Color: Make grabbing your favorite colored top quick and easy.
As you organize, it’s also a good idea to use drawer dividers or shelving for foldable items. Taking the time to upgrade your wardrobe becomes purposeless if you have no organization system—you want to show off your new style!
Know Your Style
Look at the clothing you already own and note what you love about it. Take note of similarities in color, fabrics, and design. If most tops and dresses have a similar neckline, buy new outfits with that.
Consider intermixing some of the old with the new. For example, if you have a favorite pair of jeans and just bought some Western boots, pair them with a nice blouse for an evening out. One style tip to refresh your wardrobe many fashionistas will tell you is that fashion is about expression, so wear what’s most comfortable.
