STEP 1:
CONSIDER YOUR WARDROBE NEEDS


Start by thinking about the clothes that will make you feel comfortable and just as importantly – upbeat – over the next few months. At Hobbs, we talk about the value of creating a capsule wardrobe and focusing on what you naturally gravitate towards, can help shape it. Then, it's all about keeping these pieces really accessible so it’s not a battle each day.

Dedictate time to the task and remove unwanted distractions.

STEP 2:
DEDICATE TIME TO THE TASK


Make sure you’ve got a few hours to work on this without interruptions. Choose a weekend, make a cup of tea, lock everyone else out of your room, put some music on and get stuck in. It’s fun to look at all the lovely clothes you own, put them on and try different ways to wear them. You may even rediscover forgotten items, so give the task the attention it deserves.

STEP 3:
REASSESS YOUR DRESSES


What I've realised these last few weeks is that I'm really missing wearing dresses. So when I reorganised my wardrobe, I pulled out a few brighter dress styles and I've started to wear them under jumpers or over tapered trousers. This will give them a relaxed feel that's perfect for evening lounging.

STEP 4:
DIG OUT THE RIGHT COAT


In our household, the daily walk is the highlight of our day but my puffer coat is too warm for this time of year. I prefer something lightweight and layerable. In an uplifting camel, yellow or green shade, it will be easy to slip on when you’re ushering the kids out the door or trying to encourage outside activities!

STEP 5:
CARE, WEAR AND REPAIR


Cherish pieces that are made from natural fabrics such as cotton shirts, linen tops and wool jumpers. These will last for years and years if you care for them properly!

For anything that needs some attention, now's a great time to put your sewing skills to use. Whether it's shortening some trousers, mending a hem, replacing a button or even customising some tired favourites. These are the jobs that offer the at-home satisfaction we need right now.
