With usual day-to-day routines and much of our socialising currently on hold, you may be finding yourself with more time than ever on your hands and therefore feeling the urge to reset and reorder your life and, with it, your wardrobe.
Are you really making the most of the clothing and accessories you already have? Are you guilty of holding on to something that you'll probably never wear again? A de-cluttered closet is the first step to making your existing clothing selection work as hard as possible; after all, you're unlikely to wear something if you've forgotten its even there.
As Japanese author, consultant and decluttering connoisseur Marie Kondo so famously says, you should only hold on to things that "spark joy" – whether that's because it holds fond memories, or simply makes you feel fabulous when you wear it.
"It's about heightening your sensitivity to what brings you joy," she says. "Once you've completed your tidying, there is room to welcome meaningful objects, people and experiences into your life."
Streamlining your wardrobe is not only good for the soul, but good for the environment, too. Learning how to be more mindful with your purchasing habits will likely result in less waste, and fewer regretful impulse buys. An estimated £30 billion worth of unworn clothes hang in our wardrobes, and around £140 million worth of clothing goes to landfill every year.
Of course, it goes without saying that you shouldn't be simply throwing your old clothes away; donate them to charity or sell your designer wares on a luxury resale site.
That’s where we come in. Why not make some money from those unloved items? And why not pick up a beautiful designer piece at a bargain price. To us, it’s a win win situation all round.
