A closet cleanse involves saving a garment for treasure, handling it to a tailor, or tossing it. Generally, you must avoid anything that falls under a trend or has an easily identified print that will date you. If you have a printed blouse or dress, think of you can refresh the look by teaming it with your other pieces like blazer, skirt, jeans, and such. If you got some favorite items like a pair of jeans or a dress that seems too big for you because you’ve lost some weight, think if a tailor can do some tricks for you. If not, it’s time to toss them rather let them sit in your closet for another year to come.

Keep the timeless and good-fitting pieces.

Timeless classics like a white shirt, wrap dress, lightweight coat, turtleneck sweater, leather jacket, jeans, black pants, pencil skirt, V-neck top and such are pieces you can wear forever since they’re versatile and flattering. Apart from being the best match for a blouse, an a-line skirt is universally flattering and it helps create a waist. Also, a V-neck top is slimming and creates the illusion of height as you’re directing the eye to go up and down rather than side to side.

Create a capsule collection for seasonal clothes.
