Detoxify your wardrobe: What to toss, keep and buy for 2014

January is a pretty rough month, I know that most people's wardrobes are overruled with winter clothes, but a new year is a new start, a fresh new beginning to endless possibilities, that's why we revamp our wardrobes every year.  Get a fabulous start this year by starting to declutter your wardrobe and make some space for the purchases coming this Spring.  Now I know that not everybody is able to get a total wardrobe revamp, it's just not realistic, there are still a lot of pieces which is essential and which you already have.

Now it's time to get rid of those pieces that topped our better judgement and made their way into our closets last year.  And if you can't wait for spring, there are still warm-weather basics which you can prepare your wardrobe with so that you can be well stocked up.
