It’s that time of year when the leaves are starting to turn beautiful colors, the air is beginning to feel a bit cooler and you realize you should probably start switching around your clothing closet for fall/winter.
Yes, it’s annoying and yes it’s a pain. But, (depending on how many clothes, shoes, bags, accessories you have) it really doesn’t take that long if you’re methodical and organized. The Styliaque team actually just rotated the spring/summer clothing for the fall/winter fashions in closets and drawers.
Not sure how to organize or where to begin? Here are a few helpful tips:
– Put all your fall & winter tops and blouses together in the area of your closet or drawer that is closest to your bed. This will facilitate picking out your outfit in the morning.
– Keep your pants, jeans, bottoms stored together. Same thing goes for skirts and dresses. Organizing by type of clothing helps keep everything in line.
-Put summer tops, shorts, bikinis, anything for summer high up on a shelf or in the back of a drawer while you snuggle into your cute winter sweaters, jacket, vests.
– Consider organizing your tops, shirts, blouses, jackets, pants by color. No, you don’t need to be overly OCD about it. Just keep in sync with the same color shade, making it easier to find what you want to wear.
– Every girl knows which pieces of clothing, accessories, shoes she wears and loves the most. Put those at the top of your pile for a quick reach. Dresses, jackets, pants, accessories that you don’t wear as often, either store towards the bottom of your dresser or towards the back of your closet.
– Hang garments that crease easily. This includes dresses, skirts, silk tops, chiffon blouses, jackets, work pants. Anything that needs more preserving.
– Lastly, but certainly not least, for each changing season, go through all your clothing, accessories, handbags, shoes, EVERYTHING to determine what you don’t or won’t wear anymore. If the item is in decent shape, consider donating to a worthy cause like United War Vets Council, Dress For Success (supported by TV personality & business woman, Bethenny Frankel) or any other charity that accepts lightly worn clothing. It’s a great cause and will help clear your closet and make room for new fashions.
Hopefully this has shed some light on organizing your clothing. Remember to have fun with this! It’s fashion! Put on your i-Pod and dance around while you’re organizing your closet. It’ll be that much more fun.
