BOOTS YOU NEED THIS WINTER

How to Part with Old Clothes

If you’re anything like me, you’re really sentimental. With everything. Sadly, everything includes material things, and this is why it was and still is so hard for me to get rid of clothing. For example, a shirt I wore to my first concert might not fit me anymore and might be old and ratty but will I be willing to keep it? Of course.

It took me a while to realize that how sad this was. That I was clinging on to things I no longer needed or wanted, but kept them for the sake of a memory. So if you’re currently having the same problem that I had, here is a list of a few things I asked myself before I parted with old clothes.

  1. Do I still wear it? 
  2. Will I ever wear it again?
  3. Why am I holding on to this?
  4. Does it even still fit me? 
  5. Where am I going to put it?

If you answered “No” or “I don’t know” to these questions, simply get rid of it! There’s no reason to hoard, and so many new and fresh pieces are coming out every season that you can’t make space for because you are holding on to things that you have no use for anymore. Letting go of clothing and keeping only your favorite stuff is so refreshing and gives you so much space to play around with new fashion trends, ideas, etc.

10 Tall Girl Style Tips

  1. Shop in the tall section (if the store has one) for clothes that fit you in all the right places
  2. Order clothes a size up if you are shopping at a store with no tall sizes available
  3. Go for high-waisted jeans/pants to look more well proportioned
  4. Try on EVERYTHING
  5. When ordering online, look at the hight of the model ALWAYS
  6. Mens clothes (tops/jackets) are more affordable, and fit better (because they’re made for taller people)
  7. If your pants are a bit short, cuff your pants
  8. Short block heels add so much to your outfit without making you too much taller
  9. Tuck a blouse into high waisted trousers to create a curvier silhouette
  10. Combine prints just because you can and you’ll rock it
