Losing or gaining weight means that at some point your clothes are just not going to fit properly anymore. There is no need to throw away your entire wardrobe or start from scratch.

Take a weekend to go through your entire wardrobe. Try on all of your clothes to see what fits and what doesn’t. Set aside clothing that’s too baggy or tight-fitting. You can set them on piles to either donate, sell, or throw it away later. Assemble different outfits with the clothing that you kept and make a shopping list of wardrobe staples you’ll need to buy.
