Optimize your wardrobe with the ultimate guide to clothing minimalism

Did you know that only 32% of your wardrobe is actually worn? Despite this, many of us feel like we lack choice in our daily outfits. We continually buy new clothes, constantly accumulating, without ever really being satisfied. What if we took the time to sort efficiently and only keep the essentials? On Earth Day, why not adopt a more eco-responsible lifestyle?

The return of sunny days is the ideal time to do a major spring cleaning and adopt a minimalist wardrobe permanently! Rest assured, this doesn't mean reducing your wardrobe to just a few black or white pieces. In this article, we offer you step-by-step tips for creating the perfect minimalist walk-in closet.

Reduce to choose better: Sorting your wardrobe

The first, essential step is sorting your wardrobe. Take the time to analyze each item of clothing and create three separate piles:

  • Clothes you wear regularly and love
  • The ones you rarely wear
  • The ones you never wear

The clothes in the first pile have passed the test and can remain in your wardrobe until the next sorting.

For the clothes in the second pile, ask yourself the following questions:

  • Do I really like this item of clothing?
  • Is it really useful?
  • Would I buy it if I saw it in a store?
  • Does it go easily with my other clothes?
  • Do I feel good when I wear it?

Based on the answers, decide whether or not to keep these clothes. Remember not to keep them "just in case", which is often the start of unnecessary accumulation.

For the clothes in the third pile, give them a second life by selling them on resale platforms or donating them to associations. Even damaged clothes can be recycled or upcycled.

Adopt the BISOUS method for responsible purchasing

Congratulations, you have successfully completed the first step! But if you find yourself with only a few pieces in your closet, don't panic. You can buy others, but with discretion. Apply the KISSES method:

  • Need: do you really need it?
  • Immediate: is this necessary immediately?
  • Similar: Do you already own a similar item of clothing?
  • Origin: what is the origin of the product?
  • Usefulness: is the clothing really useful to you?
  • Under: do you have the financial means to buy it?

Opt for quality, timeless pieces that will last over time. Favor ethical and local brands, and explore second-hand options for unique and eco-friendly choices.

Create a harmonious and versatile dressing room

Harmonize your wardrobe by choosing pieces in complementary colors and cuts to maximize combinations. Don't neglect timeless basics like denim jeans or the little black dress, and opt for versatile pieces.

Commit to more responsible fashion

Finally, be proud of your minimalist wardrobe and your commitment to more responsible fashion. You participated in a movement against overconsumption and fast fashion.
