How to get your wardrobe sorted for summer!

Getting your wardrobe sorted for a new season

 
It’s Labour Weekend, so even if the temperatures are still a little cool, there’s absolutely no denying that summer is on its’ way. At the end of a season and the start of a new one it’s worthwhile to take the time to do a bit of work in the wardrobe in order to make the transitions of the seasons easier. To take stock of what you have, and what you need, and to do a bit of a seasonal sort out in your wardrobe.  
Which all sounds good in theory, but how do you do that?

To make this a little easier, here’s a checklist to show you how to organise your wardrobe for a new season and to close off the season that is ending.

To begin, take a look at your last summers’ wardrobe and assess it:
  • What did you wear? Eliminate what you bypassed every day.   
 
  • Is it worn out? As we tend to wear and wash the same garments repeatedly. Is that garment still in good condition or is it time to retire it?
 
  • How did you feel in it? Get rid of anything that you don’t feel good in.
 
  • Do you still love it? Remove items that you no longer like and won’t want to wear this year.  

Now, take a look at what is left:
  • Is it still on trend? Get a couple of fashion magazines (In Style, Fashion Quarterly), read our previous blog all about the key trends here: http://www.signaturestyle.co.nz/Our+Blog/x_post/Key-trends-spring-summer-15-16-00054.html or flick through a few websites and take a quick squiz over a coffee.  
  • Is it in good condition? Simply put, is it pilled, saggy or faded? Get rid of it. Does it need mending? Get the job done.
  • Does it still fit? What looked great last year may just be the wrong length or wrong cut this year.
  • What will I wear it with? Do you need to buy an additional item to make it work?  Is it worth that? If yes, add the item you need to your shopping list.
  • Do I still love it? If you were shopping now and you saw this piece, would you buy it? If not, out it goes.
  • Can I re-invent it? It’s dated, but if you were to team it with something new could it look fresh?
Wardrobe Audit and Co-ordination is one of our most popular services. Sometimes having an expert eye and impartial opinion is just what you need. Oh, and to dispel the myths; we’re not there to throw everything out, to judge you or turn you into someone you are not – we’re there to help create new looks from what you have, clear the clutter that’s just taking up hanger space and create a plan that makes getting dressed every day so much easier.

Here's what one of our recent clients said about her experience:
“Thank you so very much for yesterday. Gosh I should have done this years ago! It was fun, cleansing & liberating, and as I've told my friends, I have less clothes but actually more to wear! I guess you probably hear that a lot!”
