Seasons change and times change. Changes in life can without a doubt be difficult, but in certain situations it can bring forth a great sense of renewal if you feel unsatisfied or monotonous. Believe it or not, but regularly rewarding yourself with a cleansed wardrobe can therapeutically benefit you and give you a new outlook on life.
Having to wake up for work in the morning with the same clothing options in your closet month after month can become tedious and boring. If you have come to a point to where you’ve tried every possible combination of skirts and blouses, your jeans have snags in them and your favorite purse no longer zips, then maybe it is time to purge and refresh your wardrobe. Neglecting your wardrobe and accepting it even if it does not meet your true personal expectations can drain you of your energy and self esteem.
Although you do not have to completely clean out everything in your closet if you so choose not to, start with clothing that you no longer wear. This can include shirts that are missing buttons or pants you are no longer able to fit. Also, remove clothing that you wore at a difficult period of time in your life, such as a divorce or family death. Casting these clothes out of your closet will also cast out any emotional baggage and ties. You would be amazed at how much better you will feel.
As stated previously, times change. Acid washed jeans and tie-dye shirts are a thing of the past. Getting rid of outdated clothing will make you feel more modern and youthful.
You could sell your old items to a second hand shop and get a small amount of money for them to put towards your new clothing and fashion accessories. You could also throw them into a bag and take it to the nearest donation center. Knowing that you are helping a less fortunate individual will bring about a rewarding sense of self satisfaction. You will also feel less wasteful. The clothing in your closet can cost hundreds if not thousands of dollars, you definitely do not want to completely throw these items into the trash.
Cleaning out your wardrobe will provide you with a sense of freshness and freedom to take on any new style that you may want to try, but never possessed the courage to do so before. Become creative and try out new accessories that you never wore before. Become bold and daring with different colors and patterns. Obtain ideas from your favorite fashion magazines and create different looks that you like.
Once you fill your closet with a brand spanking new funky wardrobe, you are going to feel empowered and ready to take on the world in your new clothing and accessories.
Of course personal budget must be taken into consideration when changing your wardrobe. However, you can find some pretty amazing things on clearance racks. Change you wardrobe whenever you feel the need for a fresh start and when you are financially stable to do so.
