What to do with the clothes you bought a couple of years ago?

What to do with old fashion items? Still wear them? Store them until they become vintage? Throw them away?

Every season I buy new stuff, sometimes a lot, sometimes just one item. It also differs if I buy expensive clothing or cheap, or a combination. In my opinion, it is possible to combine new fashion with older clothing, unless the older pieces are really time-specific.

For some reason, I don’t throw away clothing. Only if it’s unfixable or really ugly. But then again, I don’t know where I keep it. My closet is so full that at least 25% needs to be ‘in transit’ (on the floor, in the laundry or in the washing machine). Next to that, I don’t have the idea that I wear old clothes a lot (except for some good shirts). So, where the hell are those old pieces?

Maybe I need to clean up my closet and store some old pieces or throw them away. I don’t think that the clothing I’ve bought a couple of years ago can be sold second hand.

I’m wondering what other people do, do you throw away old clothes?
Do you sell it? Store it? Wear it?
