5 Benefits of a Minimalist Wardrobe
I haven't looked back since I decided to get rid of most my clothes (and other things) back in May. It's much easier to manage and definitely less stressful. My favorite part is that the anxiety of having a bunch of useless stuff sitting around is now gone. That's just one benefit of a minimalist wardrobe, check out 5 more below!
#1: You won't miss the stuff!
I got rid of over half my clothes a couple of months ago, I don't even regret doing it. Either I never wore them or they didn't look good on, so there was no need to hang on those items any longer.
#2: You'll be able to clearly define your style!
After the purge what I had left gave me an idea of what my personal style was. From there I was able to figure out how to build a new wardrobe based on what I really wanted to wear.
#3: You'll shop smarter!
This cleanse hasn't reduced my urge to shop, but it has made me more picky about what I want to actually buy. Now I ask myself, "Am I really going to wear that?" and the answer is probably no. It makes easier to see the difference between things you think are "cute" and the things that look cute on you.
#4: Your closet will look more organized!
I picked a color scheme I wanted to stick to wearing, so now my closet has a more uniformed look. Besides a few bright items I didn't want to throw away, my closet is full of neutrals (or colors close to it).
#5: Your outfits will be easier to put together!
Now that I wear colors that already work together, it hardly takes any time to decide what to wear.
Even though I'm still in the replacement stage, minimizing my style was definitely a great idea. Have you edited your wardrobe? Let me know how it's working for you!
