Does your closet overwhelm you while getting ready in the morning? It may be time for a closet overhaul. Here are some great tips to get your closet in shape to make your daily routine run much more smoothly.
Sort through all of your clothes to weed out impulsive buys or things you haven’t worn in the last year. We all have those sale items we couldn’t resist but now they just sit in the closet with tags still attached. Donate those unwanted items. A few questions to ask yourself if you’re having trouble letting go are:
Do I wear this often enough to take up valuable space in my closet?
Do I own other pieces like this?
Does this still fit?
Do I feel confident when I wear this?
Now that the hard part is over and you have cut ties with nonessential items, it’s time to build the perfect wardrobe from items you most likely already own. Items that are lucrative include:
- Plain white t-shirt
- Button up shirt
- Jeans (light and dark wash)
- Black pants
- Dress pants
Having the basics in different colors gives you the option to mix and match different pieces to create a whole new look!
Switch it up
For some, having one wardrobe for every season is nearly impossible. Try switching out your clothing with the coming seasons. This makes it easier when trying to plan an outfit, so you are not looking through sweaters in the middle of July or for shorts in February.
Wear the rainbow
Another easy tip to make your closet easier to navigate is to organize your clothing by color. This system is easy for times when you know you’re looking for a certain color. So, when you’re pressed for time you can grab what you need rather than fumbling through hangers.
Everyone’s closet is a form of their self-expression and keeping it well-maintained can help you present yourself the way you want to!
