Being an active fashion shopper, I think it is safe to say I know a thing or two about closets and what should and should not be in them. If you are like me, sometimes the amount of clothes, shoes, handbags and accessories that I accumulate can be a tad mind-boggling. However, I can never seem to part with any of my beautiful fashion finds which is why over the years I have become an expert organizer and clutter eliminator.
One of the most essential items to kick start your closet clean up are quality hangers. It sounds simple and almost obvious, but durable, solid space saving hangers prevent clothing from falling as well as keeping them crisp and unwrinkled. An additional time saving tip that will make your life easier is coordinating by colors. How many times have you been searching for that one blouse you want to wear but can’t seem to find it anywhere? I’ve been there and I have learned. So take it from me and please start arranging your closet based on the fabric shade and pattern! You will thank me, I promise.
It is also helpful to arrange your closet by items that you will use most frequently. These items should be stored at eye level while uncommonly used pieces can be stowed away above or below the main attire. What I find to be effective in managing your closet space is dividing like items together and storing them in similar places. So, if you have an incredible amount of sandals yet also endless amounts of belts, stores these in their specific grouping and in parts of the space that make sense. Sandals will most likely take up more shelf area, so try to pool them in bins that are only available for the appropriate season. By determining what items you will most likely wear for the next couple of months also makes organization more plausible. In the middle of summer you will not need immediate access to your fur lined snow boots, so these can be stowed outside of the closet space.
Keeping a closet that is neat will only make choosing an outfit that much more relaxing and effortless. Sifting through clothes and trying to find a spot for each item can get overwhelming. I hope these tips were somewhat helpful, and just remember that a fashion forward wardrobe always has room for new and upcoming styles. Keep your closet updated and kept to allow space for your future fashion finds. If you have any more clever suggestions to keeping your storage tidy, please share them!
