5 New Year’s Resolutions Your Closet Will Appreciate
Buy for your taste, not trend appeal. If a trendy, of-the-moment jacket isn’t sewn to last, buying it might turn out to be a waste of money. It’d be even worse if you bought something super trendy from a high-end label and you don’t wear it that often.
Become better friends with your dry cleaner. You might not have to send your shirts out to be pressed every week, but that doesn’t mean whoever professionally cleans what needs professional cleaning can’t be a regular part of your clothes’ maintenance. With all that stain-fighting, garment-improving knowledge, your dry cleaner should certainly be able to impart a little wisdom that’ll guide your efforts in the laundry room.
Remember what you’ve already got. Building a wardrobe can be a lifelong enterprise, and like any magnum opus, your closet should be chock full of references to who you are. Buying an outlandish sweater just because you look good in it is fine, but if it doesn’t play nice with the shirts and skirts you’ve got back at the house, it’ll stand out. In a bad way.
Don’t take your clothes too seriously. Seriously. What’s the point of getting dressed in the morning if you’re not having fun?
