There are many reasons why people decide to gather up all their old clothes and set up a garage sale. When you're staring at your closet going through each and every article of clothing you have and yet you still end up feeling frustrated for not knowing what to wear, maybe it's time for a makeover.

  1. Having a full closet and still saying, "I can't find anything to wear!"

    Have a ton of clothes and still, you can't find a single thing to wear? Girl, that's a red light right there. If you can't find anything, it just means that you simply do not really like the clothes you have. Remember, quality over quantity is paramount. It doesn't matter how many clothes you have stacked in your drawers, if having all those items and yet you still feel undecided, lost, and frustrated when you're picking an outfit, then it's time for a major closet makeover.

  2. They barely fit.

    There's a difference between having a shirt look small (and cute) enough to be a crop top on you and a shirt that you think will rip with just the slightest raise of your arms. If your clothes don't fit, whether they're all too small or too big, it's time to rethink placing them back inside your closet.

  3. You can't mix and match outfits anymore.

    If you've gone through every possible combination there is in the universe and yet you still can't find the best outfit, it's the universe telling you that you need to revamp your wardrobe. Some clothes go out of style, maybe that's one reason why you can't really match that skirt with that top.

  4. You don't feel comfortable in them.

    Rachel Zoe once said, "Style is a way to say who you are without having to speak." Comfort should always go first, so if you're feeling a bit uneasy with what you're wearing then no one will really be able to appreciate the outfit that you're sporting. What makes someone look striking is confidence, so if you don't feel confident wearing something, then don't. If you don't feel like you, change your closet.

  5. Damaged beyond repair

    Don't settle. If your clothes have holes in them, it's time to give them away. Clothes also have expiration dates, the more you wear, the more they tear but don't feel bad when you're favorite shirt is off to the goodbye section, it's enough to know that while it was still  wearable, you made really good use of it.

We all have to learn to let go of what we love but don't you feel excited  for what's more to come? It may seem heartbreaking having to let go of clothes that you've relied on for the important times you desperately needed something to wear, but things have to happen that way. It may seem difficult at first but once you've let all of them go and then go shopping for the next items that'll be featured in your new and improved wardrobe, things might not seem that bad after all.
