Phoenix Style Wimbledon is here with expert advice to help us ‘divide and conquer’…our wardrobes.
All you have to do is scroll through your Instagram feed to witness the abundant ways that ‘Mindfulness’ is entering our lives… However, with wardrobes stuffed full of clothes that have been acquired over the years, you might not realise that a build-up of unorganised clothing could actually be reflecting on your mental space – especially when you are getting dressed each morning.
Without second thought, we are all guilty of feeling like a mess from time to time especially throughout this year where we all were forced to stand still, slow down and re-evaluate.
Start the new year afresh with some of these Expert Tips from Wimbledon Village’s very own Phoenix Style:
1. Less is More
Before adding new clothes to my wardrobe, always make an effort to identify which pieces of clothing are still working for you; the idea of fewer but better things is fundamental to developing a minimal yet functional wardrobe.
Tip! Phoenix Style will help you take a good, hard look at your closet and allow you to get rid of the things that you simply don’t wear. We even value everything and store the items until they are sold, giving you space to get on with your detox!
2. Quality Check!
Educate yourself on what makes a well-made piece of clothing; look at the seams – are they straight and not puckering? Lay the garment flat – does it look even? Check the details such as zips, buttons and fastenings to see if they’re secure. This is essential to avoid wasting money on items that will fall apart or wear through quickly.
Tip! Don’t stress if you’re not an expert first time round – at Phoenix Style, we inspect every item to verify its quality and authenticity, ensuring you can feel confident when shopping with us!
3. Buy Timeless, not Trendy
In fashion, it’s true that what goes around comes around. However, no one wants a pair of red vinyl skinny jeans hanging at the back of their wardrobe for 15 years! Work out what your own personal style is and which timeless pieces complement your look and you wear on a regular basis – without buying into trends created by the fashion industry – buy yourself some of those pieces from some of the luxury designer brands that will last a life time.
Tip! With a huge range of luxury ladies fashion and vintage items to choose from, you are more than guaranteed to find a timeless piece that truly reflects your style at Phoenix Style (and at a fraction of the price!)
4. One in, One Out.
Make space for each new item that you bring into your wardrobe by taking 1-2 items out. Chances are, if you haven’t worn it in over a year, you’re probably not going to wear it again – trust me. If it’s too late to return, why not look at donating it to a better cause? PHOENIX STYLE offers customers
the option to directly donate any or all proceeds from items sold to SMART WORKS; a charity organisation that dressing and coaching unemployed women for job success.
Tip! Donate that bag of clothes as soon as you can, otherwise you might find yourself tempted to put some items back into your closet!
5. Respect your Wardrobe.
Say goodbye to your floor-drobe by investing in some good hangers and efficient drawer space – and always take extra time to read the care labels before washing anything! If you treat your clothes well, they will last a long time.
Tip! I can’t stress enough how much a little extra time is worth in taking care of your valuables. If you are thinking of reselling, items which are as good as new could retain anything up to an impressive 85% of their original value when sold online at PHOENIX STYLE.com!
