The Do’s and Don’ts of Cleaning Your Closet

We know there’s a discrepancy between what you actually wear and what’s just taking up space in that magnificent closet of yours. We’re here to help! Here are some easy tips for cleaning out your closet:



Do remove everything from your closet first. Clean the actual space first and then prepare to sort through the pile.
Do try things on. Something that might have been right up your alley years ago might make you shake your head today.
Do keep your basics. You can’t go wrong with these.
Do let go of your college-era clothing. We’re talking old sorority tees, campus event costumes, and everything emblazoned with your alma mater logo (maybe keep one for old time’s sake).


Don’t stress if you can’t do it in a day. Rome wasn’t built in one.
Don’t toss things simply because they’re “old.” Fashion is cyclical.
Don’t disregard your loungewear. Take a thorough look. If your leggings are faded and your pants are ragged at the bottom, it might be time for a toss.
Don’t procrastinate on clearing out your toss pile. Sell it, donate it, trash it — whatever you choose, make sure you’re proactive in removing it from your space.
