How to Detox your Wardrobe

A new year can only mean one thing, a new wardrobe! - Well, kind of. The beginning of the year is the best time to detox your wardrobe, which doesn’t necessarily mean buying a bunch of new clothes but instead making the most of what you’ve got. So, follow our tips and get new year wardrobe ready with Fiorelli. 

Throw out the junk!
The first thing you should do whilst organising your wardrobes is remove anything that you’ve not worn for at least 16 months. Be it the wrong size that you’re realistically never going to fit back into or something that’s so out of fashion that it’ll never come back around again. Take them along to your local charity shop and let them become a much needed part of somebody else’s wardrobe.

Identify key staples
Everybody owns a few wardrobe staples and the key is to identify these so that the next time that you hit the shops and are about to buy something too similar, you won’t waste the cash. Instead you’ll opt for something that complements your staples and increases your outfit opportunities. 

Ask a friend
Sometimes it’s really hard to let go of an item that you’ve had for a long time, especially if you’ve never ceased the opportunity to wear it. So, why not seek a friend’s opinion? A good friend will be truly honest and let you know if that sale buy dress makes you look like a sack of potatoes. It may even suit them a lot better than yourself, and it could be a great opportunity to swap a few pieces with them too. 

Taking the time to cut down what’s currently inside your wardrobes does also present you with the opportunity to shop a few new season trends. Avoid impulse buys and opt for pieces that you can work into your wardrobes. Otherwise it’ll turn into another wardrobe filler that you’ll never use.

What new season trends are you most excited about? Why not drop us a tweet @Fiorelli_Bags and let us know, we might just be able to show you in the direction of the perfect new year bag!
