5 Tips for Reinventing your Wardrobe While You’re Self-Isolating at Home

by



During this time of quarantine, I was scared of the idea of spending too many days with myself and my thoughts. Of course the instinct is to keep always busy, to be active and productive and to avoid the complete silence. But somehow the circumstances made me think a lot about the things in my life that I am blessed with, little things that are making me feel good in these days of isolation: the smell of fresh laundry; homemade soups; crystal glasses; no makeup days; my cashmere cardigan; my favorite beauty products, fresh fruits, and everything running at a much slower pace...

Creativity may be the light at the end of this tunnel, so here are a few ideas on how to reinvent your wardrobe without shopping while you're self-isolating at home...

Choose some inspirational outfit photos and try to recreate them with the pieces you have already. This will help you either realise that you have pieces that maybe you don’t wear enough, which can be very useful, or it will help you narrow down a list of the pieces your wardrobe is missing.

Put aside the clothes you’re sure don’t fit you anymore or you don’t like anymore. Choose a clean background for photographing them and get them ready to sell.  You can find many online platforms that can help you sell your unwanted pieces easily.

Reorganise your basics: jeans, tops and t-shirts are easier to see if organised in a colour scheme, or folded and stored properly in the Marie Kondo style in your drawer or closet.

GET TIG ARTICLES IN YOUR INBOX

Give your clothes a second chance with the help of a tailor. You may have trousers that are too long and never had the time to get them hemmed, or you may have a pair of jeans you’re not wearing anymore that could be transformed into shorts. Now is a good time to organise all of these pieces that need alterations.

Make the transition from winter to spring with all your pieces, especially shoes, and create adaptable outfits for changing weather conditions from one season to the next, and at this time of year, even throughout the day.
