The 3 R’s – Reduce, Re-use and Recycle

So Christmas has come and gone, and in all likelihood will have left you with a few more items of clothing to squeeze into your already over-full wardrobe.

It is also likely that the festive season will leave you with a bit of time on your hands (especially now the mad panic of present buying is over), so why not put it to good use and sort out what killer pieces will be (and certainly won’t be) adorning you in 2009.

If you’re anything like me, you will have been hoarding clothes wherever you could stash them for quite some time – now is your chance to think about what you are realistically going to wear again and what you are not (the latter almost certainly including anything with holes artfully gouged out of it).

One thing to watch out for, though, are items that may not have been worn for a while, but are great candidates to be brought back into circulation under the umbrella of simple style. Re-introducing things that a few years ago might have been considered rash additions to a student wardrobe but now fit well with a more polished look is a great way to kick-start the new year.

And for those pieces that don’t make the cut, always remember that one man’s loss is another man’s gain. While I can’t foresee male swishing parties taking off any time soon, charity shops or shelters are always grateful for clothes that are in good condition at this time of year – look up where your nearest one in located and see whether they have given any guidance as to what types of clothing they really need.
