Years ago, when I worked outside of the home, I used to organize closets on the side. It felt so good to show women what they own in a way they haven’t seen before. I loved meeting new people, learning about their style & creating outfits from their wardrobe that they would have never thought of putting together ~ Not to mention, it felt good to help women get organized in this area of their life!
* Come to My Closet *
(Note: This is my ‘Spring’ Closet. All Heavy Winter Clothing (minus the scarves) are in storage boxes with hanger bars. I highly recommend ‘rotating’ clothes in and out of boxes/bins if your closet isn’t big enough to hold all of your clothes for each season.)
- How To Organize Each Type of Clothing -
- Jeans: Jeans can be organized in many different ways depending on your space. I chose to fold & stack mine in a tall 4 bin organizer. They are organized by length but if I had the space, I would hang my jeans so that I could see the pocket, overall style, length, etc.
- Leggings: Leggings are folded and stacked in an open bin.
- Skirts & Pants: Skirts are all hung on a bar (short to long) & by color (light to dark). Pants are hung light to dark.
- T-Shirts: I like to organize my t-shirts by style first (tank-tops, short sleeve, long sleeve) & then organize them by color (light to dark and then prints).
- Tops & Jackets: I organize all of my tops & jackets by sleeve length then by color.
- Dresses: I organize dresses in this order- strapless, sleeveless, short sleeve, 3/4 sleeve, long sleeve. Before kids, I also organized them by color and since then, I still try. Its hard.
- Scarves: I drape my scarves over a few wooden hangers and then hung them on the back of my closet door.
- Necklaces: Hang an extra towel rack in your bathroom and clasp necklaces around the bar.
- Bracelets: Costume bracelets are ‘unorganized’ in a large wicker basket. Dressy bracelets are in a jewelry box.
* Sleeve Length & Color are the top 2 ways of organizing your clothes. It’s easier to get dressed when you know the type of top you want to wear and the color you’re in the mood for too (ex. white tank top). With this system, you know exactly where to go.
Long Sleeve Spring Tops, Jackets, Long Skirts
Organized by Sleeve Length
I hope this helps you to better organize your Spring Closet. Keeping your clothes organized means that it will take you less time to get ready, you’ll know exactly where to find what you’re looking for and you’ll have more fun creating new outfits!
