Do you have a wardrobe filled with clothes yet feel you have nothing to wear? Do you spend hours in front of your wardrobe getting ready and feeling guilty for not having lost weight or for having never worn a particular beautiful and expensive dress?
Would you like a wardrobe that makes you feel excited and more confident?
If yes, here are some tips on how to organize your wardrobe – and you’ll be surprised at how much it helps your life!
Before you even touch your clothes, develop a good understanding of the clothes that fit your body shape and the colors that complement your skin, hair and eye colors. Be clear on your style preferences.
Gather all the clothes you own from all around your home. Pick one item at a time and assign it to a category.
Categories could be clothes type or occasion. It doesn’t matter which categories you come up with provided they make sense to you.
Do you know that we use 20% of our clothes? The rest just hangs up there taking valuable space and also our energy. Go through each category and decide what to keep and what to discard. Set aside clothes that:
Are not in good condition
No longer fit you
Are not comfortable wearing
You no longer like or that do not make you feel good
You have too many of
You can’t pair with any other items in wardrobe.
Items that are not in good condition can be tossed, the rest donated to charities, given away to friends or family, altered or sold.
Assign a home
Every category/item needs to have a dedicated home so that you can easily remember where to put it away and to retrieve it. Bear in mind that deciding what to hang or fold depends on your wardrobe design, how much you own in each category and also your preferences.
It’s not always possible to get the organizing right first time. You may realize, for example, that the home you have allocated to your pants would be better used for your T-shirts. So make necessary changes until you are completely satisfied.
Maintenance is critical to keeping your wardrobe organized.
