Delving deep into your wardrobe is like travelling back in time and recalling memories. Many of your old clothes transport you into the world of nostalgia, encouraging them to relive those memories by wearing those clothes again.
But many people abhor looking back at their old clothes. Let alone wear them. They consider wearing them uninspiring or fear redundancy. However, the old clothes you ignore today were once a trend and as pampered as the clothes you wear today.
It isn’t offbeat to wear old clothes. Besides, using your own old clothes can help you save money and contribute to a greener planet! Surprised?
Of course. The more you reuse your old outfits, the fewer new clothes you buy. Thus, you can contribute your bit to the environment by discouraging clothing manufacturers from consuming more resources and producing more. Besides, you save money otherwise spent on buying new attires. You may use them somewhere else!
If you feel a bit inspired by the above benefits, you might wonder how you return to your old wardrobe and wear your old outfits again. Here are some easy habits.
We’ve given you the best tip right away. Of course, easier said than done. As a fashion-lover, we understand how difficult it can be to resist the temptation of keeping away from new fashion trends. But buying new outfits would push your old ones further behind. If you don’t want that to happen, avoid buying new clothes. Yes! How much would not buying new clothes matter? Not as much. Also, by wearing the old outfits in your wardrobe, you’d reuse something you once bought because it was durable enough!
It could be challenging to reuse your old outfits. But if you find it so, we’ve got another small tip. Take all your old attires out and segregate your once most favourite ones. Keep them separate to revive their old charm and continue segregating the rest. It will help you keep your wardrobe looking neater and more organised.
Once you’ve separated old and favourite outfits, check for damages to the rest. Further categorise them as reparable and non-reparable ones, as some would be damaged beyond repairs. Discard the latter and figure out what you can do with those requiring trivial repairs. A few of them could be either oversized or undersized. So, should you discard them? Not necessarily. You can still check and see if you can reuse them by making a few changes to fit your current dimensions.
All are your outfits and almost all were chosen by you once upon a time. So, why hide some and keep only a few visible? Keep all of them visible and allow yourself to have a comprehensive view of what you can wear. It will help you broaden your choice and reuse as many old clothes as possible. That’s one way of optimising your old wardrobe.
Your old outfits have been under the pile for a long time. This period of hibernation might have ruined their appearance and charm a bit. So, when you take your old clothes out, wash them well and try to revive their looks. Preferably, hang them in a place where they get enough sunshine and fresh air to dry. Press them, as necessary, and rearrange them in your wardrobe. The next time you open your wardrobe, you’d see this renewed and fresh option prepared to serve you!
