Can you believe it, Spring season is almost here! I always associate the mark of Spring with Daylight Savings Time and this year the weather is unseasonably warmer too. Another reminder about the transition is my closet, a wardrobe cleanse is in the works! Also in order to add any new additions to your closet you will have to de clutter and purge it to get rid of items that you no longer love or wear anymore, because your closet just can't take it anymore! Wardrobe overhaul is real and some mornings getting dressed can feel like an episode of "Hoarders!" Purging your closet can feel exciting, relieving, overwhelming and stressful, all at the same time. Fortunately, Tommy John has provided us with a few tips to help with Spring cleaning!
Tommy John understands that sometimes it's difficult to part with some trusty staples in our wardrobe. I'm definitely guilty of that by keeping one too many of similar black jeans or graphic tees with so much nostalgia! TJ knows the stress and provided an easy flowchart to help everyone understand how to decide what to keep and what to toss. The mane factor being, do you love it? We, myself included, tend to apply so much sentiment and emotions to pieces of our wardrobe which leads to hoarding and keeping clothes and accessories hidden deep in the depths of our closets to be forgotten.
I recently went through my closet and used this chart to help guide me through it in effort to purge my wardrobe. I found so many pieces that I just didn't love anymore. Some I donated and the rest I listed on my Poshmark closet so that those pieces could find a loving new home. One of my style resolutions this year is to condense my closet and build a truly minimal closet, with the help of Poshmark this goal has been quite an easy feat!
This season, when you're standing in front of your closet and trying to figure out what to keep and what to toss, refer to Tommy John's chart to help you decide! Also, thanks to Tommy John for providing this awesome graphic, it helps with managing tough decisions!
