But most of us do not have that luxury to house the whole 5-room flats worth of clothes into our 1 wardrobe, so we have to face reality and do some soul searching Spring Cleaning!

Here's how!

STEP 1:
Remove EVERYTHING in your wardrobe for a start. You are going to spring clean the whole wardrobe, not just tidying up, so you have got to be heartless, when necessary.

Keep your clothes into 3 piles, 1 to keep, 1 to store for winter trips and 1 to donate or trash.


STEP 2:

Fashion is not just about trends, classic pieces are essential in your wardrobe as well. Pick out classic pieces that you wear all year long like white t-shirts, timeless shirts and skirts, cardigans or your favorite jeans. Evaluate trendy seasonal items to determine if their time has passed. Consider ways to make use of pieces before you reject them, however. Even outdated prints can be eye-catching when layered under solid, classic jackets, or match with other classic shirts, jeans and accessories.



STEP 3:

You may be the frequent traveller to Japan, Europe, Korea during the Winter, but that just happens one season of the year, so store these bulky winter sweaters, scarves and boots in boxes that you can stack in the back of your wardrobe or borrow your parents' storeroom if there's still space so that you can store your 2012 shopping spree in the extra space you have just found in your wardrobe.

STEP 4:
If you have not worn something for at least a year, you are NEVER GONNA WEAR IT AGAIN! Unless they are classic pieces as mentioned previously. If not, they are not meant to be your wardrobe anymore. If a dress or pair of pants no longer fit properly, have them altered or get rid of them. Avoid keeping items "just because" or simply because they're cute or they are still new. If you won't wear them, they don't belong in your wardrobe.

STEP 5:
Take a look at your accessories too, are they piling up in plastic bags that you have yet to clear up after the Season Sale? Organize scarves, belts, hats and gloves, for example, to remove damaged or outdated pieces.

LAST STEP:

ORGANIZE!!
Do some planning before you place everything back into your wardrobe. Estimate the space you gonna need for each section.

Buy closet organizers to keep your wardrobe wrinkle free and easy to access. Have them in place before you put your clothes back in the closets after spring cleaning. If you have a tall closet, for example, add shelves to eliminate the three-foot high stack of sweaters that falls over whenever you retrieve the one on the bottom. Find hanging closet organizers or stacking units to make use of the space between hanging clothes and the floor.
