Do you ever find yourself staring at your closet full of clothes and feeling like you’ve got absolutely nothing to wear? Here’s the truth: You don’t need more clothing. You need less! Your wardrobe should reflect the classy, independent woman that you are. It’s time to declutter your life as well as your closet, girls. Here are a few things to throw away from your wardrobe to help you take control of your style. 


  • Your clothes from two kg ago

If it’s too tight or too short, why keep it around? If a piece of clothing can’t be tailored and doesn’t fit you anymore, clear it out and make room for something that fits just right.

  • That stained staple of yours

Damaged or stained clothes present a special challenge for many people. If we love the item, we tell ourselves we’ll repair that rip, replace that zipper, or research how to remove that stubborn stain. But we seldom find the time! So do the right thing and throw it away.

  • The virgin outfit

That promo shirt you got in free with brand name on it, or that ridiculous style you wanted to imitate and never wore once. It’s good to keep memoirs and safekeep stuff but there’s no reason to keep these virgin outfits when you are never going to wear it. Here’s a good rule to follow: If it’s a virgin for more than a year- let it go (We meant the clothes).

  • Ghosts of bad outfits past

No over- stuffed closet would be complete without a few shameful fashion skeletons hidden in the back. It’s time to confront your old bad style habits head on and learn from them. We all have that outfit we once loved and paraded around in but now we don’t want anyone to associate us with that style so we keep that outfit hidden in one corner.  Let it go!

  • Those expensive pieces that are out of style (and mind)

1920 called, it wants those puffy sleeves blouse back. Holding out until items come back in style is a misguided strategy. Either the cuts have slightly changed or our waistlines have “evolved.” Give away those expensive items you are holding to some needy and gain some social service points instead.
