I spent the last year editing my closet. After my huge Konmari-motivated clear out last fall, I put aside some pieces that I wasn’t sure about. I figured that if after a year or so, I hadn’t touched or worn or even thought about any of those clothing items, then it was time for them to go. Meanwhile, I dabbled with capsule wardrobes, even creating my own 37 piece capsule wardrobe for the winter of 2015/2016. I realized I had no business casual clothes so I worked on building a professional capsule wardrobe, eventually nailing it when I realized that I had managed to curate a work wardrobe that allowed me to dress the part for my job.
All of this culling and curating for my wardrobe is approximately 110 percent more time and effort than I spent on my clothes, ever. Which is probably why my closet needed such an overhaul in the first place.
But now that it’s all said and done, I can safely say that having a curated closet is one of the best things I’ve done for myself in 2016.
