THE 411 ON SPRING CLEANING

..and how to know what makes the cut in that wardrobe of yours!

Whether you’re a neat freak or a little more on the laid-back side (*cough*), everyone gets enjoyment out of a good spring clean! We’re not sure if it’s the fact that you’re creating some extra space – to most likely be filled right back up again – or because you feel like you’ve got some organisation back into that wardrobe of yours. 

One thing is for sure.. you come to the realisation that maybe those 10 pairs of blue denim jeans aren’t really that necessary. 

We have a solution, well three in fact, so read on below to get that wardrobe back in order with a little help from our good friends at Country Road!

YOUR SPRING CLEANING GUIDE.


1.

STRIP IT BACK TO THE BASICS

Not sure about you, but we find ourselves day in, day out reaching for that classic blazer, quality trench coat or the perfect fit chinos. So why do we find ourselves always trying to keep up with the latest fast fashion trend, when we know it will be outdated before we know it? Our tip, strip it back to the core pieces. Country Road hits the nail on the head with this one. Never swaying from their heritage branding, they are the epitome of classic.

THE 12 MONTH RULE

If it hasn’t been worn in the last year, toss it! As simple as that. You didn’t wear it last season, we can bet you won’t be wearing it this season. One thing we know you will be wearing and not tossing.. 

Our ‘keep’ picks – Flax Mini Skirt (ladies), Slim Slub Twill Pants (mens)

NO DOUBLE UPS

You know the saying, quality over quantity. Here at Base Colour we live by this, so like we mentioned earlier, those 10 pairs of denim jeans, or that wardrobe full of blazers probably aren’t necessary! Invest in quality and you’ll find yourself actually getting wear out of the pieces you purchase!

Our ‘quality’ picks – Tessa Boot (ladies), Slim Twill Blazer (mens)
