Categorize Your Clothing and Accessories

When a new fashion season begins do you find it hard to decide what items of clothing and accessories to buy? Sorting through the clothes in your wardrobe will make it easier to see what new items of clothing you actually need to create a fashionable look.

If you are one of those people who have a closet full of clothes but never have anything to wear, then you definitely need to organize your clothes, shoes and accessories. This is well worth doing and will save you time, money and stress.

Organize your clothes, shoes and accessories into categories, this will allow you to see what you actually have. The best way to do this is as follows,

Go through your wardrobe, anything you wear on a regular basis pull out and put in a pile.
Of the items left in your wardrobe sort through them and anything you no longer like, maybe because it doesn’t flatter your figure, or it’s just not you anymore, bin them.
Any items that are left over that you don’t regularly wear but you can’t bring yourself to throw away, put into a bin liner and store them away.

All clothing, shoes and accessories that you wear on a regular basis can then be split into categories of casual wear, work wear and evening/smart wear. Hang these items in your wardrobe in sections, or if you have more than one wardrobe, categorize each wardrobe accordingly.

When you look at your work wear, casual wear or evening wear, you will be able to see exactly what you have. This method makes it so much easier to see what new fashion items you need to complete an overall look.

With regards to the clothes you have stored away in a bin liner, give it six months and if you haven’t needed any of these items, chances are you never will in the future. If the items are in good condition take them to your favorite charity shop, if not bin them.

A great way to save wardrobe space is by splitting your clothing up into summer and winter items. When summer arrives store you winter clothes in a damp proof box in the attic and vice versa when winter arrives.
