Changing your wardrobe can be a new beginning, the transition to the new season can make you reflect on your lifestyle and be a driving force for change.

In short

, it is never too late to start new

, more aware and responsible habits.

Being aware that small things can have a big impact can motivate us.


Here are some inspiration for a minimalist wardrobe, straight from Vinted: less is more!


Know your style

: Rossella Migliaccio, founder of the Italian Image Institute, author of the bestsellers Armocromia e Forme (Vallardi) and protagonist of the new show "Revolution, Discover your colors', in partnership with Vinted, broadcast on Real Time (channel 31), in which helps people to discover garments and colors that enhance their personal characteristics, focusing on the uniqueness of the individual and not an approved standard. "If we try to put trends aside for a moment by focusing on us, on what we like it because it makes us feel at ease, we will

be able to value

ourselves and make more targeted choices in our everyday wardrobe. We try not to focus on those that are our faults for us, but work on what we love about us ".


Opt for a "capsule wardrobe"

: having a

minimalist wardrobe

can be a good way to have a positive impact on the environment: it will help you amortize the cost of items, extend the use of clothes over time and reduce impulse purchases and waste.

So opt for a capsule wardrobe: create a seasonal collection with less than 50 pieces that can be easily mixed together to create different styles for an entire period of the year.

Start by taking a look at what you already own and wear often, define your style and then make a list.

This will help you make only necessary purchases and enhance what you already have.

The pieces of the capsule should be interchangeable with each other, so as to create different looks with fewer items.


And if you want to go to the next level, try the Project333 challenge

, which suggests building 4 capsules of 33 pieces per year.

This way, you can be sure that your wardrobe will always be perfect, it will be easier to find what to wear and you will have more time to dedicate to what you love the most.


The “1 in, 1 out” challenge:

an easy and daily rule to follow to make sure your wardrobe stays tidy and minimalist is 1 in, 1 out.

It's very simple: every time you buy a new garment (remember, second-hand is always a good idea!) One of your old garments has to be taken out of the closet - you can decide to sell it for a profit, give it to someone who might love it, or donate it.


● Be creative: In addition to reducing the purchase of clothes and opting for more conscious purchases, you can optimize your wardrobe with a

creative 'do-it-yourself'.

You can easily transform an old t-shirt by dyeing it or adding an original drawing made with markers, customize a jacket, a denim shirt with embroidery, patches or beads.

You can also cut the tops or pants to create new different ones, or give an old t-shirt a new lease of life and style by cutting off the sleeves or neck.


● Don't forget the Rs: as a general rule for your conscious habits, try to always keep in mind the letter R and its simple rules: Refuse to buy when possible, Reduce the waste you produce, Reuse what is already in your wardrobe Even retrofitting and repairing it, choose to Resell some garments to give it new life and Recycle your clothes when better options are not possible.


● "The essentials": if you want to add some pieces to your wardrobe or, better yet, replace some that no longer fit you and are selling second-hand,

choose to invest in some essential pieces

i that will not only give life to your capsule, but will also be the perfect “passepartout” to face the mid-season.

At this time of year it is always advisable to dress in layers and be pragmatic.

The must-have pieces?

Outerwear

: a waterproof trench coat and a light down jacket can be functional to face both heat and cold, rain and sun.

To be worn strictly with a nice blazer for an office look or a sweater for a night out.

Jeans are always versatile

or skirts or midi dresses that can be worn with tights, boots or slingbacks.

And never forget the accessories: a wide scarf to use in different ways, warm socks to wear with trousers, sandals or ballet flats.


But if you want to choose just one piece for next season, for each body shape, what is the essential piece that we should really have in our wardrobe?

According to Rossella Migliaccio: “One of the season's must-haves is

the biker jacket

, which we can find in many versions that adapt to different bodyshapes.

The classic male oversized model is perfect for rectangle and oval;

the fitted model that enhances the waistline is good for hourglass and 8 body shapes. The shorter and more tight-fitting ones for the pear-shaped triangle, while for the reverse triangle the ideal is the model without lapels and zippers, more minimal. "
