Fed up with a daily battle with your overcrowded wardrobe? As we switch seasons it’s time to clear out the wardrobe and make way for some new stylish pieces.
Get sorted with these tips from www.musicmagpie.co.uk and fashion stylist Lucy Turner…
Take everything out of your wardrobe and bin anything damaged and tatty immediately. While your wardrobe is empty, give it a quick whizz round with the hoover!
Sort the remaining clothes into 3 piles – keep, store and sell. Be ruthless – if it hasn’t seen the light of day for six months –it’s time to say goodbye!
Your store pile should contain items you know you’ll wear again, like out of season clothes and special occasion outfits that you don’t need daily access to.
Make sure everything in the store pile is clean, and tackle any niggling jobs like missing buttons and loose hems before you pack them away into storage bags. Stash them in the loft, garage or under a bed – anywhere except your wardrobe! But remember to ask yourself – ‘Will I ever really wear this again?’ – if not then sell it.

Hang clothes according to type – trousers, dresses, jackets etc. so you can immediately see what you have. Investing in slim line hangers will instantly double your hanging space.
Turn your hangers round so they all face the same direction. Whenever you wear something hang it back facing the opposite direction. Review your wardrobe again in 6 months, anything still facing the original direction in 6 months should be stored or sold.
