How to Clean Out Your Closet in Four Easy Steps

Kill the clutter. Save the environment. Save money in the long run. Below are our four steps to clean out your closet, streamline your wardrobe and simplify your life.

Springtime is all about renewal and nothing can make you feel more energized than a well-organized closet. After you purge all the things you don't need or wear anymore, don't just toss or donate them. Take the time to analyze what you've kept, what you've thrown away, and why. It might teach you something about your buying habits and help you figure out what you need to buy going forward to help you spend a bit more wisely in the future. It takes a little time, but it ultimately might save you time and money down the road.



  • Don't toss things out based on whether something sparks joy or if you've worn it in the past year. 
  • Think why you haven't worn it? 
  • Did it not fit right? 
  • Was there something about the fabric you didn't like? 
  • Then take inventory of what's left — what do you have too much of? 
  • What missing or what would you like more of? 
  • Where are the gaps — when you are thinking of buying new items, buy from this list and the things you wear the most. 


  • Take a look at your donation pile. 
  • Can you figure out what drove those purchases to identify your shopping weaknesses?
  • Wishful pieces or items that were "such a good deal" are often responsible for the bulk of what ends up in the donation pile along with things that are simply worn out, old, or don't fit anymore. 
  • At Senza Tempo we specifically don't artificially inflate our prices knowing they will be marked down like most brands. We price our garments fairly at the outset so our customers are always getting the best value for their money. 


  • Identify what you wear most and what styles best flatter your body. 
  • Commit to buying only what you really need and suits your personal style. 
  • Three timeless silhouettes anchor every Senza Tempo collection: the hourglass, the shift, and the trapeze. These classic shapes fit a wide variety of body types and styles.


  • Invest in high-quality, versatile pieces you can wear over and over again. 

  • Buying pieces that can be styled in a variety of ways like our Diana skirt, Marilyn tops or the  Brigitte dress. These items can fill multiple roles in your wardrobe. They can be dressed up or down.

Approach shopping for clothing the way you would shop for a piece of art or a car. Don't just shop, curate your closet. You'll save time and money in the long run.
