Whether it's Marie Kondo teaching the world to keep only the things that "spark joy" in their lives or Twilight star Robert Pattinson's devotion to a nearly empty closet, ditching your extraneous stuff has never been cooler. In our last post we talked about how living like a superhero requires a uniform. If you're ready to make the leap into sartorial greatness in a single bound, today's post is for you. Before you can embrace the art of your personal uniform though, you'll have to declutter your old one. A word of warning : it requires a pretty ruthless sense of who you are as a person and the image you want to project to the world — and probably a few trips to the recycle bin, too. Your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to empty your drawers and closets of anything that doesn't fit, feels uncomfortable, or you don't really like. It's okay to admit you've moved on from something you bought; life's too short to waste time — and closet space — on stuff you're never going to wear again.
