New year is just around the corner and what fun way to enter into the new year other than getting new clothes!
Why do we buy clothes?
Clothes have always been a medium to express, a way to feel confident & bold and look better! When you buy clothes, you aren’t just buying a piece of fabric but you are buying an experience, an experience to look better than others, to feel confident and pretty at the same time.
But it’s not possible to change your entire wardrobe before this year ends, right?
So, here are some tips and tricks to revitalize your clothes for a fresh start!
- Declutter and Donate: When someone asks you to declutter your closet, what is the first thought that comes to your mind? Getting rid of clothes right? Well, yes but there’s a way to declutter your closet. There’s a rule that I follow when I have to declutter my closet. I make three categories: clothes that no longer fit me, clothes I haven’t worn in the past 6 to 8 months and clothes which are damaged a little.
This not only helps you in organizing your closet but also makes spaces for the new ones.
- Choose Quality over Quantity: When buying clothes, always remember to choose quality over quantity. When you choose quality, clothes are bound to live longer and require less maintenance. Invest in good quality pieces that stand the test of time. Choose classic styles and colors that will not grow old with time and then you can mix and match!
When you choose quantity, clothes are easily ruined with one wash or two. Not all the clothes can withstand your lifestyle.
- Repair and Repurpose: Now, when you have categorized your clothes as mentioned above, set aside the pieces that need little repair and get them repaired. It takes about 150+ years to decompose polyester. Whenever there is a little repair need, get it done or you can always sew a patch onto the repair and make it look new. Sure, embroidering on the repair is a cool way to go!
The clothes which you think are beyond repair, find means to make something out of it, like a blanket or a rug which can be used in the house. It looks cool and less waste right?
- Capsule Planning: Consider adopting a capsule planning approach. A capsule wardrobe consists of a collection of essential, timeless pieces which can be mixed and matched to create a variety of different outfits. This not only simplifies your wardrobe planning and morning routine but also encourages a mindful approach to shopping!
Now, coming to the hard part! Whenever you buy quality clothes, whether it be dresses, tops, blouses, trousers, blazers, shirts and fabrics whether they be cotton, linen, silk, etc, every fabric has its special needs of cleaning. Let’s take an example. You have a gorgeous red linen dress with ivory laces at the hems with minimal embroidery. Would you wash them among your regular everyday clothes? No!!!
If you do, there’s chances of the dress getting ruined forever. With stains on your everyday clothing, you cannot afford to wash your expensive clothes at the same time. Plus there is always a risk that other color fabrics would shed their color onto your expensive dress.
Well, you have to wash your everyday clothes separately, colors separately, whites separately. Some of the fabrics have a requirement of lukewarm water but not all. Plus if you put too many clothes in the washer at the same time, you risk the tearing and stretching of the fabric. But, doing laundry can be frustrating and time consuming plus, there are many things that can go wrong. Every fabric has different needs and it’s difficult to keep up with all the clothes when it comes to the best care.
