Only Wash Your Clothes When Necessary
One of the best ways that you can make the most of your wardrobe is to make your clothes last longer, and the way to do that is to only wash your clothes when necessary! Even when you wash on low temperatures and avoid tumble drying, which you should always do where possible, washing does have an impact on your clothes over time. So, rather than washing your clothes after every wear, only wash when you need to. Of course, there are some things that you need to wash after every wear, such as underwear and tight fitting tops when the weather is warm. However, things like jeans, knitwear and jackets only need to be washed very rarely, for example if you spill something on them or you wear them regularly and eventually they need refreshing. Not only will this help your clothing to last longer, but it will also help you to save on your water and electric bills! This is such a win from all angles!
Buy Items You Can Mix and Match With Other Pieces
Another great tip to make the most of your wardrobe is to buy items you can mix and match with other pieces. Whilst having a few statement items in your wardrobe is always fun, the majority should be made up of tops that you can easily style with different bottoms, and bottoms you can easily style with different tops, as you’ll find yourself with endless outfit combinations! Having a few great pairs of jeans, neutral tops and jumpers, a few comfy mens full tracksuits and some smarter tops and trousers is a great place to start.
Invest In Staple, Good Quality Pieces
The next thing you should do to make the most of your wardrobe is to invest in staple, good quality pieces. Rather than buying quite a few different pieces of clothing regularly, perhaps for one specific occasion, instead focus on buying perhaps one piece of better quality clothing a month, or every few months. This all depends on your budget, however you will build a wardrobe that you really love, is good quality and will last much longer than fast fashion pieces. You don’t have to spend a fortune on good quality clothes, and if you don’t have a big budget, you should look at second hand stores. There are so many out there now focused on a more modern approach and couldn’t be more different to what you imagine when you usually think of second hand clothing. You access fantastic quality clothes, for a fraction of the price.
