refreshing your wardrobe for a new season

refreshing your wardrobe for a new season

As the seasons change, so does our wardrobe. Transitioning to a new season is the perfect opportunity to refresh your closet, breathe new life into beloved pieces, and make room for fresh additions. 

In this post we'll explore practical tips on repairing cherished items, reselling those you no longer wear, and investing in timeless basics that will carry you through the seasons in style. Ahead of the launch of our new collection, get ready to revamp your wardrobe with a mindful approach that blends sustainability, functionality, and fashion-forward thinking.

sort through your wardrobe and donate/resell unworn items

Refreshing your wardrobe is more than just a seasonal task; it's an important step in maintaining a functional and stylish collection of clothing. Begin by sorting through everything you already own, assessing each item for wearability, fit, and how often you actually wear it. This process not only declutters your space but also gives you a clear view of what you truly need and love.

Items that no longer fit or don't match your current style can find new life through donation or resale, benefitting others and reducing waste. By conscientiously curating your wardrobe, you make room for new pieces that align with your tastes, ensuring that each item you keep brings you joy and confidence. Our Celtic & Co. resale service, gives you the opportunity to resell preloved Celtic garments and give them a second chance to shine. We also accept Celtic garments (like-new condition only) in exchange for a voucher, allowing you to replace the item with something that you love.

repair your well loved items

Refreshing your wardrobe can also mean giving new life to your well-loved items, especially knits, through repair and maintenance. Instead of discarding a favourite sweater with a small hole or frayed edges, consider repairing it yourself or taking it to a professional. This not only preserves the sentimental value and comfort of your cherished pieces but also promotes sustainability by reducing waste. Knits, in particular, can often be easily mended with a few stitches, patches, or a bit of reweaving. By choosing to repair rather than replace, you extend the lifespan of your clothing, lessen your environmental footprint, and foster a more thoughtful approach to fashion. Embracing this practice highlights the importance of quality over quantity and the value of caring for the items that already bring you joy.

invest in timeless basics

Refreshing your wardrobe is the perfect opportunity to invest in timeless basics that serve as the foundation of your style. These versatile pieces, such as a well-fitting pair of trousers, or a classic white shirt transcend seasonal trends and provide endless outfit possibilities. By focusing on high-quality fabrics, you'll ensure that these staples not only look great but also stand the test of time. Investing in timeless basics simplifies getting dressed each day, as these pieces effortlessly mix and match with other harder to wear items. This approach not only elevates your overall look but also promotes a more sustainable and thoughtful way of building a wardrobe, reducing the need for frequent replacements and minimising fashion waste.

organise your clothing storage

Refreshing your wardrobe isn't just about adding new pieces; it's about creating a system where you can see and access every option effortlessly. Organising your clothing storage is crucial for this. Start by grouping similar items together—tops, trousers/skirts, dresses, and accessories—and using clear or open-front storage solutions like bins, shelves, and hanging racks. Utilise drawer dividers for smaller items and consider arranging clothes by colour or season to make finding the perfect outfit quicker and easier. By ensuring that everything is visible and within reach, you’ll maximise your wardrobe’s potential, making daily dressing a more enjoyable and streamlined experience. Plus, this level of organisation helps you identify gaps in your collection, preventing unnecessary purchases and promoting a more mindful approach to fashion.

care for your knits to prolong their wear

Proper care for your knits can significantly prolong their wear, keeping them in great condition for years. Start by storing them folded, rather than hung, to maintain the strength of the fibres. Use products like the Celtic Wool Refresh Spray to spot clean and deter moths. 

Also be sure to always check care instructions before washing any knitwear, to determine if it should be hand-washed or machine-washed. When hand-washing, gently massage the wool, and if machine-washing, opt for a delicate 30° cycle using Celtic Wool Wash. To dry, wrap your garments in a towel to remove excess water, then lay them flat to dry. Remember, wool is naturally stain and odour-resistant, and with the right care, your wool garments can remain wardrobe staples season after season.
