Do you find yourself spending a lot of time getting dressed before going out? Having to triage and sift through all your clothes? Or maybe you love to shop but still uncertain as to how you should best organize all your outfits?
Well, look no further – we’ve got you covered! In this blog we will be sharing our favorite tips for implementing structure when it comes closet organization.
Before you start, our first recommendation is to begin decluttering your room and closet of all clothes and accessories you don't need. Having less items to work with will allow you to create a framework with the space you have left. Once you gone through the task of reorganizing, you can incorporate these tips into your routine:
Keep Thick Clothing Folded
When it comes to outerwear and thicker tops such as sweaters, sweatshirts, and hoodies, consider folding and stacking them in your closet shelves or cabinets. This is beneficial for a couple reasons, (1) thicker materials are less likely to crease when stored for a long time, meaning you won’t need to spend extra time ironing or steaming clothes before you put them on; and (2) by folding your thicker clothes you can create a more compact, simplified storage for your outfits.
Hang Thin Clothes
Conversely, if you fold your thicker clothes, then it is only right to hang your clothes made up of thinner material. Your suits, dresses, denim, dress shirts and dress pants can all be hung up in your closet or wardrobe. This will cause you less creasing since they are stored and kept in original form, as well as ultimately taking less space and maximizing the space you already do have.
Categorize In A Personalized Order
Finally, once you have figured out where your clothes will be stored, it is time to categorize how your clothing will be organized. The best way we have found to store your clothes is to create a personalized system that you can follow when getting dressed for any event.
Ask yourself how you like to dress and start from there. Are you more concerned about matching colors? Then consider categorizing your wardrobe from light to dark colors. Or perhaps you care more about aesthetic, and therefore may organize based on plain, patterned, or graphic designs. If you prefer to dress based on the occasion you may have all your casual clothes on one side of your closet with formalwear on the other. In many cases, you may end up incorporating more than one of these to fit your routine and fashion style.
