Change your life in three easy steps!

Shares

Minimalism seems to everywhere these days. It started as a trend but there are a lot of people who have picked the lifestyle of living with less recently.

Personally, I love the idea of doing more with fewer things because it means that I need to make less decisions. So, I challenged myself to create a capsule wardrobe. The goal was to have a small set of clothing consisting of basic but versatile pieces and nothing more. It is about discovering different ways to mix and match what you have without sacrificing style. 

If you're looking into doing the same, here are some basic steps I did to clean out my closet:

Step 1: Purge.

Don't pull a Cher Horowitz in Clueless. If you want to succeed in doing this, you need to start decluttering your closet. It may sound like a ton of work, but taking everything out and putting them on the floor will show you the reality of how much stuff you've hoarded over time.

Step 2: Sort. 

Once you've separated your clothes by category, start assessing which ones you want to donate and what you want to keep. Most people who go through this process make the mistake of keeping items that have sentimental value. You can avoid this by asking yourself "Will I ever wear this again?" and answer with yes or no only.

Step 3: Enjoy.

Step back and admire your hard work. Take the time to assess what's left in your closet. It may not be perfect and it might not be for a while, but you need to remind yourself it is a process. You'll know you've achieved your perfect capsule wardrobe when you look at your closet and see only the things that you love.
