Top tips for spring cleaning your wardrobe

Spring cleaning your wardrobe

As the blossoms emerge and the temperatures rise, it's the perfect time to give your wardrobe a refreshing makeover. Spring cleaning isn't just for your home – it's also a fantastic opportunity to declutter and there's nothing better than a completely organised space where you can see everything you own at a glance and not have to dig through piles of old clothing!

Sorting through for damaged items

Think about throwing away - or better still, recycling - anything in bad shape. This means clothes with stains or rips that can’t be mended and anything that’s a bit misshapen or stretched. It’s better to have less clothes that are in pristine condition than a ton of clothes that are only partially usable.

Not worn for a year?

Hold each item and ask yourself if it sparks joy. If you haven't worn a piece in the past year, it might be time to let it go. You’ll swear to wear it someday but the reality is it’s probably just going to end up gathering dust in the back of your wardrobe for another 365 days. Donate to charity or sell items that you no longer want.

Donate old clothes

Seasonal swap

Transition your wardrobe seamlessly by storing off-season clothes in boxes or sealed bags. This not only saves space but also makes it easier to see and access your current season's clothing. Rotate your wardrobe as the seasons change to keep it fresh and organised.

Refresh your basics

Assess your basic essentials, such as white tees, jeans, and underwear. Replace items that are worn out or no longer fit well.

Will wear items

This could be that dress you're hanging onto for when you lose weight or the jeans that you once loved but are hoping could come back in fashion. Be brutally honest and ask yourself whether you’re really going to wear them again. Most of the time the answer is no. You might also be in a new phase of your life with a new job, being a mum etc. where you need outfit choices to help you dress for the life you have now rather than what the 'old you' used to wear.

Organised wardrobe

Grouping similar items

Group similar items together, such as tops, bottoms, dresses, and outerwear. Within these categories you can further organise by colour or style to make it easier to locate specific pieces when getting dressed. Consider adopting a capsule wardrobe approach by selecting a collection of versatile, timeless pieces that can be mixed and matched effortlessly.

What to keep

Hang onto classic pieces that are timeless staples of every woman’s wardrobe. These are the clothes that will last you season after season and will still be with you long after the latest trend becomes a distant memory. Items such as a blazer, leather jacket, trench coat, a striped tee, black dress, leggings and a great fitting pair of jeans.


After decluttering, identify any wardrobe gaps and create a shopping plan. Invest in key pieces that complement your existing wardrobe and fill the gaps!

A wardrobe detox ensures you are ready for all occasions. You can create space to see and wear the clothes you love. Apart from the physical benefits of having a clear space to be able to find your things, decluttering also has health benefits too. Helping you feel clutter and stress free, making getting ready in the morning so much easier!
