How to build an intentional wardrobe

Wrapping up Wardrobe Week, Bec & Tara are teaching you how to transition from your current wardrobe to an intentional one.

 

An intentional wardrobe isn't a capsule wardrobe, nor a minimalist wardrobe. It's YOUR version of the best wardrobe - one that has only what will fit easily in your closet, and has all of your favourite clothes.

 

Tune in and find out how to get there!

Show notes:

An intentional wardrobe is a wardrobe that is carefully curated and well thought-out so that every item is deliberately and carefully chosen to be included. It is a wardrobe that reflects a person’s personality and values and makes life easier.

 

BENEFITS OF AN INTENTIONAL WARDROBE

  •  Economical

  •  Time efficient

  •  More environmentally sustainable

  •  Space efficient

  •  Less stress, less decision-making

  •  More ethical

  •  Mindful shopping

 

WHAT ARE ITS CHARACTERISTICS?

  •  It holds no more clothes than can comfortably (with room to breathe) fit in your wardrobe

  •  It holds only items you love, that fit and make you feel comfortable (or sexy, or serious, or fun)

  •  It has only the styles that suit you, only the sizes that fit you

  •  It has only a few of the colours that suit you (not ALL of your colours,) and that complement each other

  •  It has items that will last you a long time

  •  It has items that have a low per-wear cost

  •  It may have only ethically-produced clothing

  •  It may have environmentally-friendly fabrics only

 

THE STEPS TO BUILDING IT

  1. Define your style

  2. Define your palette

  3. Define your brand or values

  4. Cull unwanted items (or flag for replacement)

  5. Build a list of wanted items

  6. Slowly acquire the wanted items

  7. Build maintenance habits

 LETTING GO TIPS

  • Setting boundaries helps in deciding what stays and what goes

  • Remember that items are not worth what you paid for them, only what they give to you

  • They can still go to a good home, and be useful and loved

  • Remember that if you cull something you later regret, you’ll still be okay!
