As the colder weather is upon us, then it might be time to start thinking about packing away those summer dresses and getting out your winter woolies. Here are a few tips you can follow to make sure you’re ready and not caught out in the cold with nothing to wear.
Set Aside Some Time
Put some time in your diary for when you’re going to go through your wardrobe and have a good clear out. Pull out all your summer clothes and if you’ve got any winter bits hiding under the bed, then get them out and have a look at what you’ve got.
Recycle Or Repair
Now you’ve got everything out and can see what you have, decide what you want to keep and what you know you won’t wear again this year. If you have some stuff which you like, but it just needs a bit of TLC then put those to one side, and you can take them to the dry cleaner or the tailor.
Hang Up As Much As You Can
Use clothes hangers to hang up everything that has been folded up and out of the way for months. Let it breathe, and then you can see if it needs a wash or an iron before you need to wear it.
Look After Your Leathers
Any leather bags and shoes you have could probably benefit from a bit of a treat from BoleARTE to get them ready for the winter. Giving them a good clean or repair before using them in the winter weather will keep them looking their best for longer.
Tidy Up Your Sweaters
Invest in a fabric shaver if you need to remove those little balls of fuzz from your knitwear, but just be careful you don’t shave a whole in them.
Use Hair Spray On Your Tights
How frustrating is it when you get a hole in your tights, especially in the middle of the day or when you’re down to your last clean pair? As a quick fix to lengthen a pair’s lifespan, try cheap hair spray as it’s excellent for stiffening the fibers in your tights so that they last longer.
Wash Your Hat, Scarf, And Gloves
Do you ever wash your winter accessories? Remember that you wrap a scarf around your face and that your head sweats in a hat, so chances are they’re going to need a wash.
Once you know what you’ve got and what you’re keeping, try putting some things together to create different outfits so that you’re prepared in advance for those days when you think you have nothing to wear. Try on different combinations and take photos. Remember to try and use one piece in a few different ways if you can and don’t forget about your accessories.
Make a List
Now for the best bit, make a list of all the things you are short of, all the things you need new or need to replace. Then you can head down to the shops and get a few more little treats to see you through the winter months.
