Nothing To Wear? Organise Your Closet!
Don't deny it, we have all experienced wardrobe dilemma's, and started the day behind schedule because there is "absolutely nothing to wear" in our closets.
In an ideal world, you would take the time on sunday to plan your work week outfit, but for us women who think that is just way too organised, there is a proven way to make the most of your current clothes, and supplement them with missing 'key' items.
In a previous blog entry we discussed the 'capsule wardrobe', by investing in the essential and versatile pieces, you will always have something to wear. This is great, and you probably have some great pieces in your closet, but may never wear them.
The key to making the most of your closet is 'categorising' it. In contrary to other suggestions, we don't believe doing this by colour is the most effective way. Much more effective is to organise it by type of garments. So, all your trousers together, all the dresses together, all jackets etc...
This way, you will move from one side of your closet to the other, finding a full outfit together. You will be surprised how much this will offer you new and creative options and combinations you may never have considered.
Here are the steps to follow to make this work:
1. Have a spring-clean of your closet. Get rid of all items you will never wear. Sell them on ebay, give them to a charity, or store them in a box for the children's dress-up box. Be strict with yourself on worn-out clothing, just because it's your favourite shirt, doesn't mean it still looks good.
2. Hang all your jackets in one section, the trousers in a second section, dresses in a third, etc. Use your drawers for underwear, casual and sports wear. You don't need this mixed up with your day-to-day clothing, as it will only be more cluttered.
3. What are you missing? After having all your clothing in sections you will see which types of clothing you have too much or too little of. Take this as a guideline for your next shopping spree, if you have tons of dresses but only one pair of trousers, make sure you focus on getting a few more trousers, instead of buying yet more dresses. Consider building a 'capsule wardrobe' for your work clothing.
4. Hang your jewelry and scarves in your closets, preferable on hooks, so they are untangled, and ready to wear. Scarves and jewelry are key to optimising your wardobe, along with good shoes.
Once this is done, you will feel like you have a brand new closet, and getting dressed in the morning will be like going to your own personal clothing shop. Good luck, and happy shopping!
