Refreshing Your Winter Wardrobe

monogrammed vestsHappy Monday lovelies! I spent the weekend cleaning and organizing my apartment to get ready for the holidays. It was also rather chilly out so for the first time since I moved to Dallas, I got to wear long sleeves! On Sunday, I decided it was time to switch out my summer clothes for my fall and winter clothes, which inspired me to write this post! Refreshing your winter wardrobe doesn’t necessarily mean going to Macy’s and buying all-new everything though. For me, it means trying things on and figuring out if I still like it and if it still fits well. Here are a few tips to get your wardrobe ready for the chilly months!

Decide What to Toss

As I was dragging storage bags out from under my bed, I immediately noticed several articles of clothing that I knew I wouldn’t wear no matter how much I tried to convince myself. However, nothing in the world can convince me that I don’t need all of my quilted vests and fluffy scarves. My favorite monogrammed vest is from Marley Lilly (link here). Getting rid of the things you really don’t have room for in your closet helps save you room and allows you to better judge what you need for the coming winter!

Organize Accessories

I have so many belts, hats, scarves, and purses that they often get lost in my closet behind a big coat or something. Of course, they never end up getting worn even if they’re really cute. Find a simple way to organize them that allows quick access. For example, I hang all of my necklaces on a circular, spinning tie rack that hangs on one of the racks in my closet. It works so well and keeps them from getting tangled. Plus, it looks prettier and more put together!

Take Photos of New Outfits

Whenever I’m going through my clothing at the beginning of a new season, I always try to come up with a few new outfits out of the existing clothes I have. Sometimes I don’t even realize how much I have until I look at it from a fresh perspective. Take photos of the new outfits you create so you can remember to wear them!

Pack Up Your Summer Clothing

My last tip is to take all of your summer clothes out of your closet for a clearer, more open space. I used to keep all of my clothes in my closet year round. Instead of focusing on the great winter clothes I had, I was distracted by the summer clothes that I couldn’t wear. Clear all of that out and pack it in boxes or space bags. Hint: roll your clothes to conserve space!

    These are great tips! I’ve never fully switched out my summer or winter wardrobe, I should definitely give it a go. I’m sure it’ll help my clothing to feel new! I also like the idea of figuring out outfits in the beginning to know what you have.
