The common phrase, “out with the old, in with the new,” is the epitome of my mindset as we enter 2021. There is nothing better than the liberating feeling of leaving the past in the past and moving forward with a clear mind—and closet. As someone who has proclaimed my love for closet clean outs, I thoroughly enjoy creating a fresh start for my wardrobe in late December, starting with giving away the fashion items that no longer serve a purpose.
From retiring skinny jeans last year to officially giving away all of my leather shorts the year prior, each year I decide what to give away and which wardrobe essentials are worth keeping. And this year’s closet cleanse is no different. Though I feel like I have gone through a thousand closet clean outs this year due to my move from New York to Miami, I am still overwhelmingly excited for my final clean out in 2020. Ahead, I’m revealing the ten fashion items that won’t make it into 2021 (at least for me)—and the pieces that I deemed worthy of keeping. And of course, if you’re like me and implement the rule of one thing in, one thing out, there will always be room for shopping.
