Step 4 – Try everything on and ask yourself these questions:
• Does it fit? (If it’s too tight, either donate or store elsewhere if you think it might fit again soon. If too loose, consider alterations if you still love the item.)
• Is it flattering? (Does it highlight the parts of your body you love or draw attention to any areas you might not love as much?)
• Is the colour good for my skin tone?
• Is it age-appropriate?
• Does it fit my lifestyle?
• Have I worn it in the past year? (In most cases, bar formal wear and a few sentimental pieces, items not worn in over a year should go!)
• Do I feel good when I wear it?
• Do I receive compliments when I wear it?
• Would I buy this item today?
Step 5 – Place the charity and recycling clothing in 2 separate bags and remove from the room.
Step 6 – Bag up all the clothes that need altering and remove from the room. Rehang the clothes that are worth trying to sell on the likes of Adverts or Depop and hang them in a spare room or wardrobe.
Step 7 – Invest in some good hangers before you begin your wardrobe assessment and remove all wire hangers from your wardrobe.
Step 8 – Re-hang all your remaining clothes back in your wardrobe in category’s:
All tops together, jeans together etc. etc.
Step 9 – Arrange the items darkest colours to light with all category’s.
Step 10 – Create a list of items that you need to buy to complete a capsule wardrobe.
