Ever feel like your clothes are taking over your home? Are you guilty of using a floordrobe instead of a wardrobe? Then it’s time to get organised! Having a good sort out of the contents of your wardrobes/drawers/piles of clothes you have is great way to become more organised in your outfit choices too! It should also make it much easier to get dressed in a morning, especially if you can actually find the top you want to wear that goes perfectly with that skirt.
Clothes should be organised in a way that makes sense to you. However;
- Organising by style makes it easier to put an outfit together and will also help when you need to find something quickly.
- You can also sort by casual wear and evening wear, keeping your best clothes separate is a good idea when particular fabrics are concerned. Silks can be kept away from more abrasive textures and fabrics such as cashmere should always be stored in moth-proof bags, particularly this time of year, they do go for the good stuff!
- Sorting by colour can make picking out an item much easier, this will help you to distinguish which colours you tend to go for the most and what colours are missing from your wardrobe. We all have our ‘safe’ colours, but by organising your clothes and finding out which colours are missing could open a whole new exciting area for you to explore.
- Don’t stop at clothes get your shoes, accessories and handbags organised too! Having accessories such as belts and jewellery on display will encourage you to wear what you have rather than sticking to the same old pieces. We can often forget we have certain accessories when they are kept tucked away in a drawer or cupboard, so by seeing them we might remember to wear them and make the most of the accessories we already have!
Unfortunately we can’t all have a walk-in wardrobe à la Carrie Bradshaw, but most of us could better organise the clothes we do have to make the most of what we’ve already got and you never know what hidden gems you might find tucked away at the back of your wardrobe!
