How to Organize Your Closet Like a Pro

Wacky Hack Wednesday

Hey, guys!  Welcome back to Talk Fabulous!

Today, let’s talk closet organization.  This may seem like a daunting task, but simply organizing your closet can make you more stylish.  Really, it’s true.  Let me tell you a story.  A few years ago, I was visiting my youngest sister Rachael (hi, Rachael!).  I’m not sure how we got on the subject of closet organization, but we did.  Now Rachael is one of the neatest, most organized people I know, so it was no surprise that her closet was immaculate.  Everything was arranged by color and sleeve length.  It was truly gorgeous!  I went home and immediately rearranged my closet just as she had and I’ve never looked back.  I couldn’t believe how many cute clothes I had hiding in the depths of my closet.  Bringing those beauties front and center made it seem like I had a whole new wardrobe. Not to mention that it became worlds easier making outfits when everything was neatly organized by color.  Convinced yet?  Just try it.  I promise you won’t be disappointed!  Now let’s get to organizing!

First thing’s first, we need to establish an organization system.  That sounds complicated, but it’s really not.  It is highly suggested that you arrange your clothes by color.  I prefer a rainbow pattern, but it really doesn’t matter as long as it’s pleasing to you.  How you group your clothes is up to you. Would you rather have the clothes grouped by season? Would you like them grouped by sleeve length?  Personally, I like to group my camis together as I have special hangers for those, followed by all my tops, and finally, my sweaters. All are arranged by color and sleeve length.  I do not like to group my clothes by season as I like to get as much wear out of my items as possible.  In other words, I don’t want to hide my tank tops if I can throw a sweater over them and make them winter-appropriate.  That’s just me, though.  This is your system and you do what works for you!

To begin, clear a space in your closet.  This is where we will start the rearranging process.  You can either remove everything from your closet or just push things to the side. Either way is fine, you just need a clear space to start. Begin by grouping your pieces to your liking.  For me, this means putting all my camis, tops, and sweaters in different sections.  Next, arrange each section by color. If you’re going the rainbow route, put all your reds together followed by orange, yellow, etc.  Finally, arrange each color section by sleeve length.  I prefer to put my long sleeves first then my short sleeves and then any sleeveless pieces.  Again, that’s just me.  Whatever works for you is cool. Now, stand back and admire a job well done!

That’s all for today.  See you guys in my next post!
