Closet Psychology 101: What Your Clothing Says About You

What is in a closet? Heaps of unworn clothing, dresses with tags still on them, an ex-boyfriend’s sweaters, or jeans that are too tight? Often what we find in a woman's closet gives us a peek into her personality, emotional state, fears or desires. How does a closet project who you are to other people, and more importantly, is your wardrobe covering up your potential? We spoke with Tracy DiNunzio, the CEO and founder of Tradesy, to give us a little insight about what exactly is lurking in our closets.

A New Closet and a New You

Tips for a Cleaning Your Closet.

"I recommend that you do not clean out your closet yourself — you often need an objective opinon. It's hard for us to see ourselves, so a trusted friend that could give a really objective opinon is the best when you are cleaning out your closet.

There is no better feeling or symbolic gesture than to seprate your closet into a 'I Wear This Frequently' and 'I Don't Wear This' pile. Take everything you haven't worn and get rid of it, sell it or donate it. Then think about who you want to be and 'how does that woman dress', not a specific person, but your ideal self, and start dressing like her."
