Nothing to wear in a closet chaotic with clothes? No idea what to throw and what to keep? Follow The Times' deputy fashion editor, Carolyn Asome's six-point plan to finally getting to grips with your wardrobe.
The news that the Duchess of Cambridge is a fashion hoarder may come as something of a surprise given her reputation for thriftiness (yes, like normal people she REALLY does wear an outfit more than once) although in her case, “hoarding” is a deliberate strategy to avoid causing fashion stampedes when she turns up at a public engagement.
For example, the Moloh coat (below) that she wore for the Christmas Day service at Sandringham has not been available to buy for two years, but for the rest of us, I think we can be honest here and say that hoarding isn’t quite the same thing. Personally, my ‘hoarding’ reached a low point a few years ago when, due to the never-ending clutter, I realised I’d bought the same top twice. The original top (complete with tags) was stuffed at the back of my cupboard.
