We love the fabulous fashions of fall, and according to our trusty weathermen, there is still plenty of time to keep enjoying them! But fashion is always forward, as they say, and spring sparklers are already splashing through magazines, on the runways, and all over the Internet! So what’s a girl to do? Torn between the fall fashions we’re loving now, and the spring styles that we’re sure to fall for soon! Well fear not, our fashionable friends; many of the trends you’ve fallen for this season are on the horizon for spring … and they’re only getting better! So continue to march on with military inspiration, embrace brights and play with prints, let it shine with glitzy glam and fem it up with ruffles galore! Plus, your favorite fall jeans are still your best friend, and neutrals are rockin’ on!
So you’re not ready for a full-fledged closet cleanout … it’s still snowing after all! But that doesn’t mean you can’t start making room for a few new fashion friends that are sure to be making a home in your wardrobe soon! So set aside some time for a little “in preparation for spring” cleaning. If you need some girl time, invite a friend over! As you know, one woman’s trash may be another’s treasure! Here are a few key questions to ask yourself as you carefully consider each item:
- Does this fit? Not sure? Try it on, and don’t let fashion be your foe. If you don’t feel good in something, ditch it!
- When did I last wear this? Let’s be honest, if you haven’t worn it in a year, you probably never will.
- Do I constantly skip this item as I’m looking for options? Is it always a non-option? Maybe it’s time to pass it along to someone else.
- Would I like this if I saw it on someone else? Or am I holding onto a trend that is never really coming back.
- If I were out shopping today, would I choose to buy this?
It’s a perfect pastime for a cold January day, so grab a cup of cocoa and get to it! Trust us, a little closet de-cluttering is worth it! After today, you won’t have to look at an overstuffed closet, baffled as to why you can’t find anything to wear … and you’ll have plenty of room for those superb spring styles you’re looking forward to!
