The Purge: Getting Rid of 2015 for Fresh Fashion Perspective

Now that 2015 is a thing of the past, let’s look on to new and brighter pastures. Doing a purge is a good way to find new perspective and iron out your personal style by fashioning yourself into who you want to be in 2016. It sounds like a big idea, but we promise that it isn’t. Here’s one big tip to keep with you when purging your wardrobe:

Essentials Only
Essentials are things that you can’t live without. In terms of fashion, these are things that you normally pull from your wardrobe. You probably get a lot of wear out of them, and you’ve figured out how to wear the same piece in different variations. When purging, hold on to the essentials, or look for newer versions. It’s okay to spend moe money on essentials, because you’ll get a lot of wear out of them.
