How to make the most of your wardrobe
This is part three of my sustainable fashion series. If you haven’t read the previous two posts in this series, the first one was an easy guide to sustainable fashion which you can read here and in the second one, I shared a few easy tips you can use to care for your clothes and make them last longer. You can read that here.
Lay everything out to help you find new combinations
My first tip is to get all your clothes out of your wardrobe and look at all of your pieces. This will help you see clearly what you’re working with. I also find this useful when it comes to the clothes in my draws since when they’re all just sat in the drawer it can be difficult to see what you’ve actually got.
Next choose a piece of clothing, for example, a top that you really like and go through all your bottoms including skirts and see which pieces work well together. This is a great way to find new combinations. Don’t forget to try them with different accessories too! Then have a mini fashion show and try all the outfits on. Don’t forget to take a picture of each look and save them in a folder on your phone!
Use an app to organise your clothes and make mood boards
Try out some styling hacks
The accessories you choose can also really change an outfit. I used accessories to change the vibe of the outfit I styled for this post. Heeled ankle boots and a crossbody bag dress it up more whereas Vans and a backpack give it more of a casual vibe.
Start using the ‘first in last out’ rule
A first in, last out system basically means that once you’ve worn a piece it goes into one end of your wardrobe and the next time you’re picking an outfit you choose pieces from the opposite end. It’s almost like a conveyor belt or a queue and means that you work your way through wearing all the pieces in your wardrobe instead of just a small selection.
