The Style Report: Go to Your Closet

Please make sure to perform this task while in your closet alone; or with a qualified professional! It's time to raid your wardrobe ladies: “Out with the old and in with the new”, we think “everything that's old is new again" but not everything.

Step One: Hang it up

One must have the appropriate hangers; they are velvet, thin and take up practically no space. The best part, your clothes will never slip off the hangers again. Do I endorse these babies? I swear by them as I personally own hundreds to hang my wardrobe and I never leave my clientele hanging without them.

Where to buy? Bed Bath & Beyond or The Container Store, they also sell the clips to convert into pant/skirt hangers. No space in your closet? Simply tier them from rod to floor.

Step Two: Loosen up and just unwind

What's in back of your closet is your very next find! Take some time to examine each garment as though you are seeing it for the very first time. Even if it has not seen the light of day for many years, if it is a classic, it will bear the test of time. A wardrobe is a mix of style, not just the same thing in different colors. Just as one cannot live on plain bread alone, a bit of butter and garlic is needed to spice it up.

Step Three: Pile it on

Now you are in the home stretch, make two piles. Pile one consists of all the clothes that did not make the grade. Give to charity or consign. Pile two consists of clothes that need a nip and tuck so off to the tailor you go.

Step Four: The list

Take a piece of paper and divide it into these categories:
Fill In and Wish List.
The first part is dedicated to buying pieces that will complete what is left in your closet. The second part is your wish for those brand new clothes which are a must to dress for the new season.

Never buying on impulse again is your goal!!
