Keep scrolling for the cardinal rules of a refresh and for key tips from Natalie Suarez.
“I have become a lot more picky with what I buy, what I wear, and what I'll keep! That makes closet clean-outs a lot easier.” — Natalie Suarez
“The first that goes is my endless pile of T-shirts. I don’t think a girl needs more than, say, five T-shirts. I keep a lot of quirky, timeless statement items. I can mix those in with the basics.” — Natalie Suarez
“Lord & Taylor nails it in the transitional statement piece department. For this look, I went with the store’s Free People selection. I love a great embroidered blouse that I can wear a million different ways… and anything denim. This overall dress is very unique and so flattering. I can wear it in the winter with tights and a turtleneck or in the summer with bare shoulders and sandals.” — Natalie Suarez
“I used to keep everything, and it made it impossible to find that white blouse I was looking for. The more organized I am and the less clothes I own, the better I feel. It’s like a weight lifted off your shoulders, knowing you only have the items that you love.” — Natalie Suarez
