But Why Change?

Before we get to the “what to do and how to do it” with your wardrobe, let’s take second to address the why. Why should you revamp your own wardrobe to help achieve the most fashionable you for 2017? A compelling article in GQ magazine revealed that what you wear could actually make you look smarter, and perform better. So if you are looking to boast that best self for 2017, let’s take a look at how to mix, match and pair with existing items and how to splurge on versatile must haves.

Love it, leave it, or let it go.

Did you know cleaning out your closet is rated as one of the top ways to have a more productive household? So go in with the intention of clearing out 30% of your wardrobe, working towards the incentive of a couple new gorgeous pieces to add to your clothing collection. The general rule of thumb is if you haven’t worn something in 6 months, toss it. If you pull it off the hanger and have little emotional connection, toss it. If you are keeping a pair of jeans from high school thinking you will someday fit back into them, toss them. Got, it? Okay now….GO!

And now, time for the reward. There is one MUST add to revamp even the oldest, dreariest of wardrobes. Merino wool, often referred to as the everyday miracle fibre, is a versatile and stylish addition to pair and match with any piece of clothing. A bright turquoise wool scarf will jazz up anything from a white t-shirt to a gray jumper.

A classic black wool jacket can be worn to a rugby game on a cold winter’s night or to a crisp summer evening cook out. It is a fibre that keeps you warm in the winter and cool in the summer, while maintaining a stylish, classic look. The perfect addition to any closet, anytime of year. Splurge on a couple of merino pieces, and your wardrobe is sure to spark up a flashy new you for 2017.

As the days tick on and the sparks of New Year’s Eve become a distant memory, let us not forget the goals we set out for ourselves. Surely looking and feeling better made their way somewhere into the goal setting, right? Goals such as eating local, having alcohol free days, and more exercise are noble and have notable benefits. But a true gem of a goal is just a closet clear out away! So go forth, clean, clear, reward yourself and fall in love with your wardrobe again.
