Finding Your Style // How to Organize Your Wardrobe

Organizing makes a world of difference! Having a clean closet helps you see all that you have and doesn't make you feel overwhelmed with all you have. Even though I have tons of clothes hanging in my closet it seems like every morning I still stand there and just stare at my overflowing closet but still feeling like I have nothing to wear. Maybe it's because I feel overwhelmed by everything I have and don't know where to start, or just that I have my favorites and tend to wear them everyday but then complain that I have no clothes! So I figured out that organizing really helps in the morning when choosing that perfect outfit.



 Get rid of everything you don't wear. Donate it, sell it, or throw it away. Do whatever you can to get rid of it, so you can have more space for new items. When I go threw this process I ask myself these questions; does this still fit me? will I really wear this? okay how old is this? is this really me? These questions help me eliminate so many clothes!



 Keep everything where you can see it. Don't hide your shoes in the very back of your closet, or place your favorite outfits at the bottom of the drawer. Display your most favorite and cutest outfits in your closet nicely, or place your most worn boots on a rack. This helps speed up the process in the morning when getting ready so your able to see all you have. This way your able to clearly see what pieces you can use to put together a cute outfit. When you keep everything in clear vision, your able to prevent lost items, or forgetting that you even own it. I also love to display my most worn jewelry. It reminds me all that I have and that way I'm able to wear things I don't normally pick out.

 Change our your closet seasonally. When winter comes its time to break out those sweaters and scarves! And in the summer I will switch out my drawers and put my shorts in my top drawer and put my jeans in the bottom, where I normally don't open. I'll break out my shoes for those certain seasons. This helps to change your mindset on what you can wear in those seasons. You don't have to switch out everything, but just the clothes you know are so impractical for that season. For example I don't put away all my tank tops in the winter because I love wearing my jacket over them.

 



 Figure out what you need to complete a cute outfit. Once you have organized your clothes your able to see what new pieces you'll need or even want. When you get rid of old shoes and clothing pieces your able to see what you would like to replace.

  4. Great tips - I should really take a few of those pointers away.

    Honestly, I feel like the more I have, the less I have to wear. I know it makes no sense, and yet, it's a hard feeling to shake.

  7. What good questions! I know I have a hard time getting rid of stuff because one day I might...maybe..perhaps...NEED that item. I like organizing my closet with like things together separating the sweaters, skirts, pants, dresses, tops, etc. It makes getting dressed in the morning much easier.
