We all want to look and feel our best. Well, each week, we're sharing five tips, five items, five products, five ingredients, five steps, five minutes to a more fabulous you, which is why we call it Five to Fab!!!
Every few months, it's necessary, and it's a major job. I'm talking about doing a closet clean-out. Since I know how overwhelming it is, I've brought in Image Consultant Natalie Weakly to simplify the process for us.
Three key questions to ask:
- Does it fit and and look good on you?
- Do you love it?
- Do you have too many of the same things?
2. If you are purging in the "in-between" times, pregnancy, losing/gaining weight and have to work with a modified wardrobe, move everything that doesn't currently fit but isn't ready for a cut to a different section of your closet/different closet or, especially with maternity clothes when you are going from a whole closet to a capsule wardrobe, move everything that currently fits to one section in the most accessible place in your closet.
3. Everything that stays needs to be in wearable condition - tailor or repair any pieces that need some TLC.
4. Once you've edited your closet, get organized! Organize by the way you get dressed, then style, then color.
5. I say this in every closet I go in to, use matching hangers! The mismatch distracts your eye from the main event - your clothes! Some days it's hard enough to get dressed, we don't need hanger clutter bringing us down.
Bonus Tip: Resist the urge to start your edit process with a trip to buy organizing supplies. Buy them last, you'll have less at the end of a good edit and won't need to buy as much.
