Everyone can do it with an organized and neat closet. It becomes so much easier to pick up an outfit if you have everything in order. Here are some tips on ways to go about achieving this and use your closet in the most effective manner.
One of the most efficient ways to organize your closet is by category. Pants, trousers, jeans in one section, tops and shirts in the next. Your jackets and heavy coats go in another place. Undergarments in separator drawers, accessories and jewellery in another area, and so on and so forth. Using separators in your drawers helps sort smaller clothes items. They are much easier to retrieve too, especially paired items like socks.

Use vertical storage
Space constraints trouble the best of the best. Using vertical storage is a good option to arrange the closet. Especially with shoes that tend to take up as much space as clothes, go vertical. Even a small width of your wardrobe can be designated for arranging shoes vertically. For example, you can let the shelf run the entire length of your wardrobe. Your shoes will keep well in these kinds of shelves. In addition, you will be able to retrieve them with ease. Find the best use of your space this way.
You can arrange your wardrobe according to use. What would that mean for you? You choose outfits depending on how you will use them, right? Then, dedicate a section of your wardrobe to say, beachwear. And all items answering to that description can go in here. From your bathing costumes to sarongs, open sandals and floppy hats. Office wear will require your formals. Party wear will be something entirely different. Section them off according to use. As a consequence, you will find outfit planning that much easier. You would not need a closet organizer for this, just some common sense and patience.
Custom design by your needs
You may have a real or app-based closet organizer to help. Fact remains though that each of us has specific needs. We also have personalized items that might not fit into a formula. One’s look and outfit planning is also defined by their accessories. You might have a handbag fetish. You will need specific shelves to accommodate them. Maybe another section just for clutches. Depending upon what you own, it is best to redesign your wardrobe.
Your wardrobe will surely contain pieces of delicate clothes that need to be organized separately. It is best to have a section dedicated to such. Hang them lightly on hangers. These may be lace outfits or sequined scarves. Pulling them out from a pile is not the right way to arrange them in your closet.
Your outfit planning depends hugely on the weather. Shouldn’t you follow the same rule when you organize the closet? Keep a designated shelf for stacking sweaters. A separate place in your wardrobe for the summer months will help. Make sure to also sort footwear accordingly.
As mentioned earlier in #1, separators in drawers help to sort small items in your wardrobe. An effective way to go about this would be to roll up certain items. Socks, for example, get beautifully arranged when you roll them up in pairs. Similarly for tee shirts and undergarments. They take up much less space and are that much easier to retrieve. This tip will definitely help to use your closet in the most effective manner.
Colour code items
A wonderful way to arrange one’s wardrobe is to go by colour. Indeed an innovative and effective method, just give it a try! It might take time initially to achieve this. But once you are done, you will find outfit planning a breeze. All you have to do is to think up a certain outfit colour combination. And then go about searching in that particular section. This will make picking outfits much easier since you do not have to look all over.
Use lazy Susans
Any professional closet organizer will have some tips towards managing jewellery. Most of you might have gone through trauma trying to untangle different necklaces that you have put together in some box. You might not have enough space to keep them in separate boxes. And right when you need one, out come three more in a horrible jumble. Instead of becoming impatient and tearing them off, get a lazy Susan. This is the best way to arrange jewellery. Get to fix one upside down in your wardrobe. All you need to do now is affix multiple hooks all around it.
So remember ladies, it is not only your clothes that make up your wardrobe. There are shoes, jewellery, hair brushes, handbags, and make up items as well. Following these tips will help you get organized. And once done, selecting an outfit is a breeze!
