How long do you keep your clothes for?

I'm wondering what other people think is a reasonable time frame for getting rid of clothes that they don't really want anymore.
I realise that there are people who believe in ditching anything that doesn't suit, and probably people who wear everything until it falls apart. I have items of clothing that I've bought that have fallen into either of those categories, but generally, I try to keep items of clothing going even if they are not awesome because I can always wear them around the house and it makes me feel less guilty. I know, too, that how much you paid for an item is probably a factor. But maybe not a huge factor? I know that for me, there is some point at which an item that I have kept out of guilt or a sense of obligation gets ditched because I feel that it is long enough. Or maybe I once liked it but it's not really fashionable any more. So I'm talking about those items that are not outrageously unfashionable but just not quite the right cut or colour anymore, or maybe never suited you that much. When do you give yourself permission to replace those?
