I have to be honest; I love a good closet cleanout—so much so that I do it on a frequent basis. As a naturally-born editor, I’ve been editing my closet ever since I can remember, ultimately foreshadowing my future in fashion. Growing up, I would continually assess my clothes, carefully curating them into piles, ruling them in, and others as out (and yes, I mean as young as eight years old). Therefore, it’s a redeeming quality I have maintained throughout my adulthood, and each clean out is just as thrilling as the next. Candidly, it’s only natural that certain trends fade and others evolve, whether you’re updating your go-to boots or breaking up with your once-favorite color.
This season, I’ve adopted a new mindset amidst my wardrobe cleanings that less is truly more. Perhaps it is a result of the past year, or maybe my style is maturing, but I have become drastically stricter in deciding what I really need in my closet. This newfound perspective and tight edit of my clothing have also inevitably changed the way I shop. I find myself asking the same questions: How am I evolving my wardrobe with this piece? Do I already own a similar version of this? Do I even like this trend anymore? Ahead, I reveal which trends are simply not for me anymore, while also sharing which trends will happily replace them—and keep scrolling to shop the best new trends dominating my closet.
