How long do you keep clothes?

Me and hubby were talking about this last night. He will keep things forever. Jeans I will keep for a few months but tops and dresses I usually wear only once.

I tend to keep stuff for a WHILE!! but then I get in these moods where I'll get rid of a lot of it at once... you can recycle anything you dont want this way! lol

I used to hoard but I've pretty much purged all I'm willing to.

As long as they still fit, are in good shape and in style I keep them.  I try to buy a lot of classics and mix and match.  I will get a few funkier stuff that I keep for a season, but try not to spend too much money on them since I knew the following year they will be out of style.

If I haven't worn it in a year, I donate or sell them.

I keep clothes until they don't fit, rip, or when bleach can't make them look clean anymore. Lol. I'd love to replace my clothes more often than that, but I can't afford to, so... yeah.

I generally don't keep things more than two seasons unless it's something timeless and looks amazing like a trench or fabulous fitting jeans.  Dresses don't get worn more than a couple times usually.
