Minimalism

It's the idea that by owning less, we free up the time, energy, and money to get the most out of life. The more intentional we are about what we keep, the freer we are to seek fulfillment.

Minimalism encourages us to invest in things we love, instead of accumulating things we like. W...

Reasons For A Minimalist Closet

  • Tidier closet: you won’t have to dig through items you don’t wear
  • Increased confidence: if all your clothes are your best, you feel good no matter what you put on

Having a color palette increases the mixability of your pieces. This means most of your clothes will match and you’ll save time putting outfits together.

Choose what makes you feel the most like yourself and stick to it. 

Getting Rid Of Clothes

  • Donating: to places like Goodwill or the Salvation Army, or friends.
  • Selling: Many independently-owned thrift stores will give you money or store credit for well-preserved pieces.
  • Swap parties: Gather clothes you no longer wear and invite your friends to...

Maintaining a Minimalist Wardrobe

Choose long-term clothes carefully and invest in pieces that don’t go out of style, like a black cocktail dress for women or a tailored suit for men. You want these to showcase your best style as you either wear them very often (e. G. Work clothes, coats) or only on special occasion...
