The 5 piece French wardrobe

The Basics list:

Decluttering is so important for your mind and soul. You immediately feel better after you get rid of things that you no longer need or no longer serve a purpose in your life.

The French have an effortless way of getting dressed and always having the best wardrobes. They follow this 5 piece basic lists to ensure they have the core pieces to create great outfits. Having a good foundation of staple pieces ensure you are buying the right clothes and accessories. You then add extra pieces you just love! Try to stick to only a few pieces a season as not to clutter up your wardrobe.

This system also has a sustainable aspect as you spend more money on only quality staples. You don’t have to keep replacing cheaper made ‘fashion’ pieces that you get over in a season and that end up in landfill.

A suggestion is also if you give away or sell something you have had for so long then you can replace it with something new.
