6 Steps to Take to Overhaul Your Closet

Monday, January 21, 2019





If you are anticipating the start of a new season or want to give yourself a fashion makeover to boost your self-confidence, it might be time to turn your attention to your closet, which might be filled with outdated or unloved clothing.

Rather than complaining you have nothing to wear when searching through a cluttered wardrobe, you should aim to organize your clothing. Read the six steps to take to overhaul your closet.

Step One: Start Decluttering

Every fashionista should routinely declutter her closet. There is no point browsing or organizing clothing you know you’re never going to wear. That’s why you must remove every garment from inside your wardrobe, then separate them into piles you love and want to hold onto and items you’re happy to donate or throw away.

Be ruthless with your selection and throw away clothing the falls under the following criteria:

· No longer fits your body shape

· You haven’t worn in 12 months

· Is damaged or dated

· No longer suits your style

Step Two: Rotate Clothes Seasonally

Your goal should be to make your wardrobe as functional as possible, so you don’t feel frustrated when selecting an outfit for the day. To select a style with ease, you should rotate your clothes seasonally. During summer, store your sweaters, cardigans, and heavy coats out of sight, so you can take your pick from t-shirts, vests, dresses, shorts and lightweight jackets.

Step Three: Freshen Up Your Style

Once you have removed unwanted items from your wardrobe and have prepped your existing clothes for the season, you should then aim to freshen up your look with some new pieces. Invest in staple items that will allow you to mix and match your garments.

For example, a leather jacket can look great with a floral blouse or a little black dress. You should also invest in a fashionable coat, which can help to harmonize an overall look. Browse beautiful plus size coats easily online and find the perfect choice.

Step Four: Upgrade Your Closet Accessories

Transform your wardrobe from drab to dream by upgrading your closet accessories. For example, you could install new hooks and shelf dividers and purchase elegant hangers. It will improve organization in your closet while adding a touch of luxury into the space. So, you’ll be able to find the perfect bag, a pair of shoes or a scarf with ease.

Step Five: Organize Items by Garment

It’s also a good idea to organize your clothing by garment, rather than placing items of clothing in your closet at random, which can make the space more complicated than it needs to be. For example, all your blouses should be together; your jeans should be lined up next to each other, and so on.

Step Six: Add Labels onto Storage Boxes

Storage boxes can help to minimize clutter in your wardrobe, as they can house everything from shoes to small accessories. However, rifling through different boxes to find your favorite bracelet or belt can be frustrating. For this reason, you should label each box, so you can find an accessory or footwear in an instant.
