Whether you have a walk in wardrobe or just a few drawers, keeping your wardrobe organised is always a challenge. Here are some of my tips and tricks to keep your clothes organised!
1. Try to get rid of clothes twice a year
This is the number 1 way to reduce clutter in your wardrobe. As someone who loves a bit of shopping, I like to regularly go through my wardrobe and get rid of anything I don’t wear anymore to make room for more things! I either throw them out if they’re old or ruined, give them to charity, or sell them online or at the market.
2. Sort clothes by type
This is a really easy way to see what you have and what you need. By sorting clothes by type (dresses in one part, skirts in another etc.), it will be so much easier to put an outfit together. If you’re planning to wear a certain type of item, they are all in the one place so you can see all of your options. Plus it looks so much neater!
3. Then sort clothes by formality
I know most people seem to colour coordinate their wardrobes and while it may look nice, I don’t find that it works for me. I find it more helpful to organise from most to least formal. When I have an event or I’m going out, I can look at the section of my wardrobe that’s most appropriate for what I’m doing and select an outfit from it.
4. Roll up your clothes
I’ve found that the best way to fit more into your draws is to roll up your clothes. This way, you don’t have to rummage through layers of clothes to find what you need, keeping all your clothes neat and tidy. Your clothes will have less wrinkles and then there’s the added bonus of actually being able to see everything you own!
5. Store off season clothes
If you have a small closet and some extra storage, a good way to declutter your wardrobe is to put away off season clothing. If you’ve only got a limited amount of space, you don’t want jumpers and jackets taking up the majority of your space during summer! Alternatively if you don’t have other storage space, you can reorganise your wardrobe and put off season clothes in one section. This way you can put those clothes that don’t suit the season to one side and focus on the things you can wear!
6. Display your jumpers
If your jumpers draw is bursting at the seams, try displaying them. If you have any shelving (or a mini bookshelf like I do) show off your favourite jumpers! Fold them neatly and stack 3 or 4 that compliment each other on either colour or pattern. It looks great and you get more space for your jumpers!
