I’m skipping posting my outfit today- to give you a little peek inside my closet. I get lots of emails from readers asking how to organize your closet, so today I decided I’d show you what I do.
I think the most important thing to keeping your closet organized is to make sure everything has a place. I’m talking jeans, sweaters, belts, purses, scarves, slips, bathing suits… everything!
By planning out where everything goes- it is so much easier to put laundry away and stay organized.
I also suggest that since most of us only wear about 25% of the items in our wardrobe, about every 3 months do a closet edit. Go in with an open mind and just start getting rid of things that you haven’t worn. Keep a laundry basket on the floor and fill it with items to donate to charity.
A great tip I read was to turn all your hangers one direction- and then after you wear something turn the hanger the other way. After a few months you will see what you are wearing or not wearing- which will help when it comes time to edit.
My organization is that I like to group like colors and like items together. I have all my dresses in one section, all my blazers in another, skirts are separated as well.
