"The Best Way to Enjoy Your Favorite Things Everyday..."

Only Keep your Favorite Things
is to only own your favorite things.
I know that right now most of us are wearing our casual clothes day in and day out. But, sometime in the future, we'll be going out and about again and will want to dress up in something other than sweat pants or yoga pants. At that point, it might take a while to find something that; fits, is in season and that we still like. If you want to be ready to hit the ground running when that day comes, you can start now to get your clothes into shape.
One of the ideas that has gained a lot of popularity is that of a capsule wardrobe. A capsule wardrobe is: "...the building blocks of your closet that support the foundation of your personal style. Start by investing in timeless, classic pieces that set your current fashion #mood—then add trends, color, prints and patterns for each season." according to Stephania at Stitch Fix. Some people believe that there is a specific number of items of clothing, such as 37, that should make up your capsule wardrobe, but this is just a suggestion. Although using a number of 150 items would be quite extreme, feel free to pick a number between 37 and 50 that works best for you.
In order to keep my closet from getting overrun, I use the old school idea of turning all my hangers backwards every December. Each time I wear an item, I put the hanger back the correct way and that way I know, for sure, what I have actually worn over the course of the year. At the end of the year, any hangers that are still backwards, are on the chopping block. I usually get rid of about half of those items. I have been known the give the other half a second chance but I do mark that hanger with a hash mark so that if it is backward at the end of the following year, it definitely needs to go. Granted, that might not work so well for this year but it is a place to start.
Whatever way you choose to start going through your clothes, it will be well worth the time invested when getting dressed become quick and easy, knowing that everything you have fits and that you really like it.
Here is the Question:  
How have your clothing style and/or size changed over the past 6 months? Have you updated your wardrobe to match?
