Wardrobe Rehab: 5 Steps to Perfecting Your Closet (Also: what challenges do you face with your wardrobe?)
6 years ago when I was living in London I started writing on the subject of Wardrobe Rehab – a process of perfecting your closet and maintaining it over time so that really works for you. Andddddd so that you never stand in front of your closet wondering what to wear again! The goal is a wardrobe that’s easy to navigate, full of pieces that you absolutely love and are able to create infinite outfit with. Fast forward and I’ve learnt so much about maintaining a functional closet and developing your style, much more than I knew and understood when I first started. It’s for that reason that we’ve been wanting to renew/rejuvenate this series for a long time, and finally we are!
I’m really excited because later in the week we’ll be kicking off an updated Wardrobe Rehab series, starting from scratch and working our way through the steps one at a time with you. If you haven’t done something like this before – or if you have but you’ve fallen off the wagon – take this as a sign! This transeasonal time of year is perfect for refreshing your closet and your style. Over the next few months we’ll go through the 5 steps with you, sharing videos, tips, tricks and ideas for how you can not only organise and edit your existing wardrobe, but how you can also develop your personal style, choose a palette and focus your shopping. All so you can look and feel your best.
A Question For Your Guys
As a way of knowing more about what would help you with the perfect wardrobe, I’d love to hear about any challenges you face in terms of developing a wardrobe that works really well for you. Do let me know if there is anything in particular you would like me to delve into when it comes to your closet whether it be budget, essentials, colours, brands to buy from, fit, occasions or whatever!
Step 1. Wardrobe Cull
Step 2. Define Your Style

I’m really excited to share this updated wardrobe journey with you, and hope you get on board. The goal is to do this together, sharing the highs and the lows. – Hopefully we’ll all have the perfect wardrobe within a few months. I’m so excited!
