The Fashion Items a Former Vogue Editor Wants You to Throw Out of Your Wardrobe

There are some people whose fashion advice you should always take heed of, and Vogue editor/stylist/consultant Ginnie Chadwyck-Healey is one of those people. Last year, after 12 years at the fashion publication, Ginnie decided to set off on her own to create a new venture called VCH Style, which sees her taking on everything from brand consultancy and personal styling to presenting. Unleashed from the world of glossy magazines, Ginnie is now on a one-woman mission to clear up the nation's wardrobes. And, if that's not enough, she has also just been announced as Kate Middleton's new personal stylist—if that's not a testament to her fashion prowess, we don't know what is. Watch this space.

With her mantra, "condense, curate, create," Ginnie has a practical approach to personal style and is an expert when it comes to creating a capsule wardrobe. "Piecing together your everyday looks should be as enjoyable and easy as throwing on that new dress for a special occasion," she tells us, and we couldn't say it better ourselves. So with spring on its way and sustainable consumption on our minds, we decided to quiz Ginnie on her top tips for clearing out our wardrobes and making room for hardworking new pieces.
