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

Define your style​

Define your palette​

Define your brand or values​

Cull unwanted items (or flag for replacement)

Build a list of wanted items

Slowly acquire the wanted items

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!
