How To Spring Clean Your Wardrobe In 6 Easy Steps!

Very few of us actually enjoy spring cleaning. Having to tackle of the dust and dirt that piles up over time can be daunting and tricky to take care of. Unfortunately it’s the same way with our clothing. Oftentimes we just collect, collect, and collect some more leading us to have tons of clothing that we haven’t worn in months or even years! You may be feeling like it’s time to take care of your closet and start some spring cleaning. We’re here to help you take care of that in 6 easy steps!

1. Sort Through Your Clothing

Step 1 is always the most important! If you have a deep closet of clothing, it can be daunting to sort through it- which is probably why you’ve been putting the spring cleaning off until now. Once you build up the courage, you’ll want to start by either removing everything in the closet & laying it out, or re-organizing the clothing to make it easier to sort through for step 2. Being able to see all of the clothing you have allows you to really take in the scope of your spring cleaning & help you plan out what you want to accomplish.

2. Organize Your Clothing Into Categories

Once your clothing is sorted you’ll want to then organize them into different categories. How many categories is up to you, you can organize your clothing by theme, season, type of clothing, or just about any reason that will help you decide which clothes you wear often, and which ones that you don’t.

3. Make Note Of What You Wear Often And What You Don't

Moving forward with organization, it’s crucial to take note of what clothes you want to keep around because you wear them often, which clothes you want to keep because they hold sentimental value, and which clothes you no longer want to keep. This helps establish your style and allows you to make smarter shopping choices in the future! If you’ve decided to keep clothing that you enjoy but don’t wear very often because of the fit or style, bring them to Stitch It and we can see what we can do for you! For the clothing you no longer want, you can develop a plan for them which we’ll touch on in a few steps from now.

4. Rearrange The Clothing You Kept To Highlight The Season

By now you’ve organized your clothing into categories, discovered your style, and know which clothes you want to keep around. Let’s take it to the next level by putting all the clothing back into the closet, but rearranging them for the season. Because you’re doing some spring cleaning, it’s best to start with putting all of your spring clothes together, or in such a way where you see them every time you go into your closet this season. For the out-of-season clothing, you can choose to either store them in a separate place, or move them to the back of the closet so that they don’t interfere with your day-to-day outfit choices.

5. Develop A Plan For Your Unwanted Clothing

Found some clothing that you have no need for or are out of style? You can start developing a plan for what you want to do with them, but try to avoid throwing the clothing out. Clothing waste is a big problem across the world, and being sustainable with our fashion is one way that we can help prevent that problem from growing larger. One step in your plan could be to consider alterations and giving your clothing a second chance by visiting a Stitch It location!

6. Make Spring Cleaning Your Wardrobe A Regular Occurrence

As we know, it’s really easy for clothing to just accumulate in our closets throughout the year. You may get clothing your birthday, Christmas, or an anniversary, as well as adding onto your collection yourself by going out shopping or thrifting. That’s why it’s important to make a wardrobe spring cleaning, something that happens every year! You can even take it one step further by doing a wardrobe audit every few months at the change of the seasons to make sure you’re at the top of your fashion game!

Doing some spring cleaning to your wardrobe can be a lot of work, but just like a lot of hard work, it’ll be worth it in the end. With some effort, and maybe a good playlist to help you pass the time, you can have your wardrobe clean, organized, and ready to take on every season. Who knows, perhaps you’ll even find something to bring to Stitch It so that you can fall in love with it again!
