Our wardrobe is full of clothes, some of them even 10 years old. They just occupy space and confuse you every single day when they present themselves as an option to be worn. Either they went out of style long back or you outgrew them in size or stature. You open the doors of your wardrobe & think, “I have so many clothes to wear but why are there no good options?” The reason is because you stopped building good options, since you ran out of space or filled it with the items bought on impulse.
So here is a thing. I propose something like this in the last few days of this year: Have a critical look at each and every garment piece you have and ask these questions:
1: Did I wear this piece in the last six months?
2: Is this cut or shape really in nowadays or I am just being ignorant & dragging this one with me from some distant past?
3: Is this white garment still as white as it was when it was bought or I couldn’t see its yellowing?
4:Does this piece fit me anymore (no false promise of exercise, please. It never happens)?
Once you have created enough free space, you are all set to focus on the right things.
Remember, rebuilding your wardrobe can really be rebuilding your life, your outlook and your approach to many things including your professional decisions.
Just focus on basics but by keeping style in mind. By style I don’t mean fad, what’s-in. What I mean is universality, versatility and everlasting properties. Styles, which last for considerably longer and have flexibility. You may like to read Top 10 essentials garment pieces in every man's wardrobe which provides a quick download on the essentials.

This exercise should take half of your day but will make your life so simple. You will know exactly what you need to buy, whenever you do so. And when it comes to wearing, you will have just the right options.
Well, seems simple? It is simple. However it requires a dispassionate eye and maybe some qualified view on fashion and dressing. If you have that, wonderful. What remains is the will to act. If you don’t know anyone who can help you with this, you can write to us. We can figure that out for you.
Turn over a new leaf this New Year.
