For those of you who are following the Closet Makeover series this is part two of a series of advice on how to organize your wardrobe and closet. Last month we went over the guidelines on how to only keep the clothes that fit you in your clothes closet. Now that you have all the clothes that fit you in your closet you may begin to discern if you would like to go a step further in analyzing them. For instance, you may ask yourself some questions about how often you wear that piece of clothing. If you haven’t worn a piece in the last 2 years then maybe it’s time to get rid of it to make room for the clothes that you do wear.
How do the clothes in your closet make you feel? Do you feel good in those clothes or are you uncertain? Do your clothes enhance your body shape or do they point out certain flaws? What about the color? Does it flatter your features? Are you really certain that it’s a good color for you anyway? Also, you may ask yourself if your clothes reflect your personality. Perhaps these are questions that you have difficulty answering because you never thought about them before or because it’s difficult for you to judge without a second opinion. After all, it’s nice to have someone who can give you an honest opinion about how the clothes look on you. Someone who isn’t afraid to be truthful because they have experience in helping people discover their best choices for clothes and color.
Stay tuned for next month’s Closet Makeover series where we will talk about how you can learn what your best colors are. We will also discuss the impact that color can make on your appearance.
