Following up on my last post about spring fashion, I realize the only way to really get into this fresh, new season is with a wardrobe update – which calls for a spring-cleaning of your closet! Transitioning from a winter to spring wardrobe can be a bit messy, so here are some tips to help you get sorted for the season ahead.
ROTATE FOR THE SEASON
As we all know, the weather has been quite moody with the sun constantly playing peek-a-boo. The temperature can go from chill to warm in mere minutes, so with this in mind, keep only season appropriate basics in your wardrobe. Jackets in lightweight fabrics or lighter denims and blazers should be kept on rotation and try and limit one, maybe two of each in your closet at one time.
If you’ve got the room, then use it! Heavy winter layers like thick knit sweaters and down-filled coats take up a lot of space. Store them in an easy to reach place, like in boxes under your bed for quick access in case the temperatures dip unexpectedly again.
OUT WITH THE OLD
Take a good critical look at your clothing. If some pieces are badly worn and torn, then toss ‘em. Clothes in decent shape should be either donated or resold. Even better, get your friends together for a clothing swap, because remember, one’s girls trash is another girl’s treasure!
ITEMIZE YOUR CLOTHING
If you’re spending your time spring cleaning your wardrobe, you might as well organize it. My advice it to group similar items together and then colour code them. This way you can easily mix and match outfits and getting dressed in the morning will be a breeze – and fun!
Once you’ve rotated, sorted and organized your wardrobe, you’ll probably be looking at an “emptier” space. Don’t panic, because this only means you’ll have more room to shop and re-stock. UCM’s gorgeous retailers have started to receive their new spring collections, so come on girls, lets go shopping!
