Start by assessing your closet and identifying items that it’s time to part with. Here are some things you should consider getting rid of today, and the first thing to consider is, do you love it and do you feel good wearing it? If the answer is no to both of those questions, the answer is unequivocally, get rid of it. Here are some additional considerations when making the keep, toss, or storage decisions:

Clothes that no longer fit: Whether they’re too small, too big, or just don’t flatter your body anymore, hanging onto ill-fitting clothes only takes up valuable space. Donate or sell/consign these items to make room for clothing that fits you well and makes you feel comfortable. With so many choices, be sure to carefully consider where you donate or consign your items. Consult, with an expert on this. If you love the items in question and they don’t fit, take it to a tailor to see if they can be altered. 

Worn-out or damaged items: It’s easy to hold onto clothes that have sentimental value or that you think you might wear again someday, but if they’re damaged beyond repair or have seen better days, it’s time to let them go. This includes items with holes, stains, or stretched-out fabric. For really special pieces, like archival top designers or a dress you wore to your daughter’s wedding, for instance, consider storing these in a designated area of the house. 

Trend-driven pieces that no longer feel relevant: Fashion trends come and go, and it’s natural for some pieces in your closet to feel outdated. If you haven’t worn something in the past year because it no longer feels on-trend or reflects your current style, consider parting ways with it. Also, some trendy items may still look okay, but if they don’t work with your current lifestyle, consider parting with them. 

Uncomfortable clothing: We all have those pieces in our closet that look great but feel uncomfortable to wear. Whether it’s shoes that pinch your toes or a dress that rides up constantly, there’s no need to hold onto clothing that makes you feel uncomfortable or self-conscious. Sometimes, we hold onto clothes that have that je ne sais quoi, or a quality that cannot be described easily, but we don’t like the mood we are in when we wear them. That level of discomfort is absolutely unacceptable in the closet! Get rid of items that put a damper on your day! 

Duplicates or similar items: Streamline your wardrobe by keeping only the best-quality and most versatile pieces. Do you really need multiple versions of the same item? Probably not. Let go of duplicates or items that serve the same purpose.

Items with tags still attached: If you’ve bought something and never worn it, chances are you never will. Be honest with yourself about whether you’re really going to wear that impulse buy, and if not, consider donating it to someone who will, or consign with a reliable source. NWT/NBW (new with tags/never been worn) often fetch the most value. Again, consult with an expert on which platforms or resellers are the most reliable.

Sentimental pieces that you never wear: While it’s nice to hold onto clothing with sentimental value, if you never wear it, it’s just taking up space. Consider repurposing sentimental items into something you will use, like turning an old t-shirt into a quilt or pillow. In other words, find a way to honor it. For higher value pieces like special occasion dresses, find a special place in your home to store them

By clearing out the clutter in your closet, you’ll not only make getting dressed in the morning easier, but you’ll also create space for new pieces that make you feel confident and stylish. So, take some time today to go through your wardrobe and let go of the items that no longer serve you. Your closet—and your mind—will thank you for it.

Paris Fashion Week With Luxury Fashion Stylist Lisa Chambers.

What are some of the standout trends that emerged during Paris Fashion Week for the autumn/winter 2024 collections?

As we have seen recently, minimalism is all but gone, and maximalism is back; however, even at houses like Chanel, logos weren’t on full display as they have been in the past. 

Change and freshness are everywhere. Notably quiet luxury brands like The Row demonstrated elements of creativity, modern silhouettes, and uniqueness, in addition to their already high-quality fabrics and mediums. 

IMG 7830

To see or not to see: sheers have staying power. On the runway, models often went braless, but beautiful undergarments by luxury brands like La Perla add elegance, interest, and coverage. 

Larger handbags are back. Even for evening, micro bags have disappeared. 

From your perspective as a luxury stylist, which designers or brands showcased the most innovative and captivating pieces during Paris Fashion Week?

I loved the looks at Chanel, Schiaparelli, Saint Laurent, Stella McCartney, and Chloe, but fashion insiders also talked about Loewe, Diesel, and Miu Miu. For my in-depth interpretations, call or email me! 

IMG 7971

How did the overall aesthetic and mood of the autumn/winter 2024 collections differ from previous seasons?

Creative directors seem to be embracing the shift for women to enjoy dressing again! It took a while following COVID for people to enjoy getting dressed, and then the trend was all about minimalism. Now, people enjoy putting thought and excitement into what they wear on a regular basis. 

IMG 7961

Were there any notable shifts or developments in terms of materials, textures, or color palettes that you observed across the collections?

Denim is now a staple in almost every brand. Whether for suits, pants, jackets, and even shoes and handbags, denim is integral. 

Leather is also a staple material in almost every collection. 

Mixing mediums like leather maxi skirts with sheer blouses is very on-trend. 

    Statement belts over outerwear add a tailored and polished look. 

    There is no rule for hemlines from micro mini, mini, knee-length, midi, and maxi, which are all on-trend. 

    Brown is the new black. Brown is the perfect color for a base piece and can be mixed with pretty much any color. 

    IMG 7993 1

    As a luxury stylist, how do you anticipate incorporating the key trends and styles from Paris Fashion Week into your clients’ wardrobes for the upcoming season?

    Although luxury brands are typically on the pricey side, prices have increased in clothing and accessories. I encourage my clients to invest in pieces they can wear in multiple ways, and when they see their closets being taken over by one or two brands, it may be time to visit some newer ones. 

    I encourage clients to dress in what makes them feel their best. Whether it is a color that brightens their day or a fabric that makes them feel elegant, there isn’t a wrong time. 

    Take mirror selfies in your outfits before wearing them, particularly when purchasing prints. When viewed differently, clothing prints look different from different angles and at different distances. 

      In your opinion, what were some of the most memorable runway moments or fashion shows from Paris Fashion Week? 

      Fashion lovers anxiously awaited to see Chloe, with Chemeni Kamali as the new creative director, and Alexander McQueen, with Sean McGirr as the new creative director. It was a very interesting time for those brands. 

      IMG 7849

      How do you see the trends showcased during Paris Fashion Week translating into everyday wear for clients who want to integrate high-fashion elements into their personal style?

      Mixing in bold, statement accessories is a great way to add some flair to a minimalist outfit. 

      Mixing textures and colors was all over the runways. 

        Chocolate brown is strong as a neutral color for a base piece and tonal dressing, or wearing different shades of a single color lengthens and streamlines the body. 

        If a client is a true minimalist, a classic pantsuit in a bold color rather than a true neutral would add some interest to their wardrobe. 

        Dress in what makes you feel empowered. This can mean different things to different people and situations. 

        Opt for versatile pieces. If you love a brand but are hesitant to invest in multiple pieces, find one staple, like a blazer or skirt, that can be worn in multiple ways. 

        IMG 7990 1

        From a styling perspective, what are some practical tips or insights you would offer to individuals looking to incorporate elements of Paris Fashion Week’s autumn/winter 2024 collections into their own wardrobes? 

        Invest in a long statement coat that you can wear almost daily. 

        Introduce color and use brown instead of black as a base color. It’s more modern and works really well. 

        If you are interested in meeting Lisa in person…..add this fun event to your calendars!!!!

        Can you share with us some of the standout trends you’ve observed during Fashion Week Feb 2024?

        Wearability was an essential component in all the runway collections. There were very few moments of looking at an outfit or dress and saying, where in the world would I go in that? Designers didn’t shy away from furs, leathers, and other natural fibers as they did in years past, although I wouldn’t say it was a ‘Mob wife’ or overdone aesthetic. 

        IMG 7277

        Many of the shows had women in lower-heeled shoes than in previous seasons, and there were virtually no platforms until the Thom Browne finale. Minimalism was minimal, and maximalism is back! Fashion is fun again. You can always be in style wearing cream and beige, but bold colors and prints were everywhere. Tweeds are still on trend for Fall/Winter 2024/25. 

        Which fashion designers or brands did you find particularly innovative or exciting to work with during Fashion Week Feb 2024, and why?

        Thom Browne’s show concluded the week, and he is more renowned for his men’s collections than women’s. The theatrical and ethereal show highlighted a stunning women’s collection. I loved the new twists on embellished tweeds, gorgeous drapey outerwear, and PVC shoes and accessories. The suits, skirts, and jackets were wearable, not just for the next Thom Browne show but for an important meeting or a fashionable lunch with friends. I hope to see more of the women’s collection in upcoming seasons. I recently found out that Thom Browne and Johnson Hartig, creative director and founder of Libertine, were former roommates before Thom Browne began designing menswear. Looking closely at the styles, it’s clear they are long-time friends!

        I also loved the Gabriela Hearst collection. She uses beautiful open-weave wool, leather, and shearling for slim maxi dresses, and her evening wear is breathtaking. Fabric movement in all her pieces just felt so feminine. The show took place on a snow day (Tuesday, February 13) in Brooklyn, which didn’t keep anyone away. The show was packed, and the standing ovation verified that Gabriela Hearst mastered her craft. Her collection moved me because her love for her work shone through in the pieces.

        I am looking forward to a showroom ‘resee’ to touch and see the garments up close. I particularly loved three pieces: a chocolate brown leather strapless cocktail dress, a cream wool/cashmere open weave knit maxi dress, and a silk and crepe dress that could easily work from day into evening, depending on the jacket it’s paired with. 

        IMG 7284

        Tory Burch also surprised on Monday night to mark the 20th anniversary of the brand. Rich textures, tonal ensembles, and pops of color dominated her runway. The brand has not been on my go-to list, but for my clients, modern, elegant, and sophisticated, there’s something for everyone. Sparkle, mixing textures, colors, and shine added a cool factor to the designer’s traditionally minimalist collection. 

        IMG 7276

        What advice would you give to aspiring stylists who aspire to work in the fast-paced environment of Fashion Week? 

        Aspiring stylists, don’t be shy about asking your favorite brands for tickets and dress to impress. Be thoughtful about your outfit choices because this is your time to shine. Hundreds of photographers are outside the shows; you never know where and when someone may photograph you. Photographers don’t just look for celebrities. 

        IMG 7538

        Stay within the vibe of the designer whose show you are attending. For instance, if you are attending a Carolina Herrera show, even at 10:00 am, it is midnight somewhere. You can’t go wrong in elegant cocktail or evening attire. If you attend an AREA show, opt for metallics, stones, and anything shiny! 

        The shows are a great way to connect with people. Although the fashion and people may seem intimidating, everyone in attendance shares a love for fashion. Step outside your comfort zone and introduce yourself to new people. Use this time to discuss opportunities to attend future shows and styling guidance. 

        IMG 7527

        Another tip is to join Vogue Club and sign onto their Discord channel. As a generous community, you never know when you might be invited to a show or event. Check out Eventbrite for aspiring and new designers who have invested time and money into their shows and are looking for an audience. You can also watch the shows on live stream here, so if you can’t secure an in-person spot, you can see the fashions in real time. 

        Looking back at Fashion Week Feb 2024, what were some of the most memorable moments or highlights from your perspective as a stylist?

        I love being surprised by freshness and innovation, which is exceptionally challenging for creative directors, season after season. I loved seeing Gabriela Hearst receive a standing ovation for her outstanding collection after parting ways as creative director for Chloe (September 2023 was her last show during Paris Fashion Week) and focusing solely on her brand. Taking that initiative and making that decision could not have been easy, and the beauty in her collection showed her dedication. 

        IMG 7546

        I love introducing people, especially my husband, to fashion shows. Thom Browne’s show was his first fashion show ever. Carrie Coon, star of “The Gilded Age,” narrated Edgar Allen Poe’s “The Raven” as the soundtrack, so it was as entertaining as a production as it was about fashion. He loves horror stories and the macabre of it all. 

        How do you transition what you see on the runway into your client’s or your own closet?

        Each brand has a fit, price point, and vibe that works for different clients. I wouldn’t suggest an AREA piece for someone who rarely goes out or is a minimalist because the pieces are sexy, skin-baring, and sparkle in the evening. For someone looking for understated elegance in the day or evening, Proenza Schouler is a fabulous go-to brand for my clients, and Proenza Schouler White Label is a more affordable alternative to the leading brand with a great look and fit. When considering which pieces would work well for my clients, I am conscious of the budget.
