Whether it’s a new season or you just want to update your wardrobe collection, knowing where to start can be quite difficult. Particularly when it comes to trying to learn new trends and keep up with them, this makes it all the harder to update your wardrobe as and when you so wish.

However, you don’t necessarily have to pay attention to what’s trending, and you could just decide to come up with your own style to wear, regardless of whether that is the same as or is completely different to what’s currently in your wardrobe. Here are just some of the ways for you to get that all-important wardrobe refresh.

Clear out your current wardrobe

You’re first going to need to clear out your current wardrobe if you are wanting a new one. This doesn’t mean you have to get rid of absolutely everything. Just look through everything you currently have hanging up and decide what you still want to wear and what you would rather sell, give to charity, or throw away. This is best decided based on how long you’ve had each item. For example, if you’ve never worn an item of clothing or if it’s hardly been worn, you might want to sell this; whereas, if you’ve had an item of clothing for quite a few years and it is still wearable, you may prefer to take it to a charity shop of your choosing. Alternatively, if an item of clothing is no longer wearable, this is when you are going to want to throw it away.

Don’t forget underwear

Underwear is one of those items of clothing that can easily be forgotten about. It’s very easy to buy some underwear and many years later still be hanging onto it, even though it would probably be better off in the bin. So, whilst you’re clearing out your wardrobe, you may as well clear out your underwear drawer at the same time.

Once you have done this, you are going to want to buy some new underwear but knowing how to choose the right underwear can be quite difficult. You are going to want to buy the right underwear for different occasions, for example, you may decide on wearing some comfy briefs when lounging around the house and then switching up for date night by wearing your sexiest underwear. Just remember that comfort is often most important to consider, and you shouldn’t buy anything that’s too tight or too loose, as in both cases, this can prove to be very uncomfortable.

Consider the time of year

What you are next going to need to consider is what time of year it is. Obviously, clothes change as the year goes on, however, if you are wanting a complete wardrobe refresh, you will need to focus on the current climate first as a priority and then later you can start to look at clothes that will suit other seasons. For example, if you are currently looking to refresh your wardrobe and it’s coming towards autumn/winter season, you are going to want to prioritize buying jumpers and jeans as opposed to t-shirts and shorts. This might also mean considering whether you want a year-round capsule wardrobe or a seasonal capsule wardrobe. Whatever you decide, just make sure it’s the right choice for you.
