I'm not sure why you wouldn't wear clothes from just 3 years back, or so. Most everything I have are "favorite" items. If something's in my closet, I'll wear it. I have a few items from 20 years back that I still wear, and they still look contemporary, like a Diane Von Furstenberg wool tweed jacket (actually part of a suit, but the matching skirt is too narrow in style for me, though narrow skirts are back in). Some things are timeless.

I think what you're getting at, is what Oprah meant, when she did a show on "going shopping in your own closet". IOW, take a look at everything you have, and cycle back into your active wardrobe some of the items you might have forgotten about.

...something like that. Styles don't change that fast, anyway. Whatever you have that's 3 or 4 years old will still be current. Enjoy! Get jiggy with it!

I do consider 2015 and 2016 to be different eras as far as IZOD goes. 2016-present is a more innovative era, with more focus on desirable features rather than basic styles, but maintaining the true IZOD spirit. This has in fact helped IZOD regain some of its lost popularity from 2013-2015.

I think the O.P. was asking about clothes you haven't worn in awhile & you are thinking about taking them out. Lots of us still wear some of our clothes from 3 yrs ago....favorite items don't count cause that would not be something you haven't worn in awhile...& thinking about wearing again...

I don't "think about" my clothes. I wash, wear, or trash/donate them.

A few weeks ago I wore the two Nautica shirts, and today I wore one of the IZOD Spring 2015 Fairy Tale shirts.

Well, now that it's March and spring is (theoretically) three weeks away, I've been thinking about my short pants which I haven't worn in a while. I am thinking about wearing them again, but with a snowstorm (OK, not really a "storm" but 5 inches forecasted) maybe not just yet.


I am also thinking about my sandals which I haven't worn since about the last time I wore shorts.


Does that count?

Just bagged clothes to donate....so rearranged the rest and found some items I'll be looking forward to wearing this summer.

Kept thinking "does this item of clothing bring me joy?"

That made it easy to toss items I hadn't worn in a year or so...the hardest thing to get rid of is clothing that is in perfect condition, but for whatever reason, I don't wear it...

I'm thinking of buying and wearing softer cut shirts, like poet shirts with long loose sleeves and lace cuffs, midi bias cut skirts, and looser hair styles. I can't quite get into ruffles and bows, but am enjoying the resurgence of soft, feminine styles I'm seeing for next fall. after wearing mostly tailored clothing for a long while, the change will be nice.

"...are there any clothes you haven't worn in a while you are thinking about wearing again? "

yes.
i have lots of "dress" clothes, that i do not wear, since it is mostly "business casual" now.
so, when i mow the yard, or paint the bathroom, or do anything which might permanently
stain the clothing, i wear those dress clothes. i am the best-dressed painter ever.

Seems like even men's button-down casual shirts are going towards softer, lower maintenance fabrics. I compared my pink IZOD button-down shirts from Spring 2015 vs. Spring 2018, the ones from Spring 2015 are more rigid in feel, while the Spring 2018 ones have a softer feel and slight natural stretch. I think the trend is to have clothes that require less maintenance.
