HOW TO DECLUTTER YOUR WARDROBE
Time to get rid of everything in your closet that's collected dust over the last year. Trust us—it's fun! With the dawn breaking on a new decade, we like to hit refresh. Evaluate the pieces you already have. Do they bring you joy, or do they just take up space? Sell or donate the clothes you never wear, whether out of discomfort, or perhaps your style has changed.
We've always said that our ideal closet consists of fewer, but better things. Check out our list below for staple items to keep if you have them, or to invest in to fill any gaps in your decluttered wardrobe—plus tips and tricks for keeping your closet streamlined.
The Dressed Down Slip Dress
Although a stunner for evening, a classic silk slip dress feels timeless and fresh for your go-to casual look, and can be layered on top of tees or under a cool moto jacket. Pair with with a leather tote and chunky knit through the spring. When deciding whether a slip should stay or slip into your donation pile, check for quality silk materials and seasonless neutral colors.
The White Button-Up
You really can't go wrong with a crisp white button-up (we’d argue it’s a must-have wardrobe anchor). Oversized silhouettes and funky collars lend a fresh take on the classic. Throw yours on with bright trousers and slick shoes. During your closet declutter, organize all your button-ups together. If you see too many repeats of the same style, keep the ones you wear the most and a wilder version as a fun backup.
The Fun Striped Sweater
Playful stripes brighten any look and never go out of style. And while you can never have too many cozy knits, keep striped sweaters to under a handful that you can match with slacks, skirts, and beyond.
The Everyday Statement Jacket
We’re obviously a proponent of wearing your best everyday—and your outerwear is no exception. While recent years have seen a rise in statement coats, a neutral shearling jacket with a bold boxy silhouette fits the bill perfectly, and will last into the next decade.
