How often have you gone into your closet and struggled to find something awesome to wear? Or, how often have you struggled to put together an outfit, simply because your closet is like organized chaos? Getting your closet organized will help you feel better, and it will help you look better too. You will be able to find the clothes and accessories that you want with speed and ease. Organizing your closet doesn’t have to be a daunting process, and if you break it down into key areas, it can be so much easier and more manageable.
Give Your Closet a Cleanse
Before you look at organizing, you need to give your closet a thorough cleanse. Keeping clothing and accessories that you no longer like or wear is pointless. So, focus on getting rid of all of those pieces of clothing that you don’t love anymore. When you are cleansing your closet, also think about how clothing makes you feel. If you do not feel beautiful or awesome in an outfit, then find a new home for it. Donate it to goodwill, or sell it to help you buy new outfits that make you feel (and look) awesome.
Making It a True Reflection of You and Your Interests
After you have completed a cleanse of your closet, you then have to make it a true reflection of yourself and your interests. If your closet is not reflective of you, then you will never truly own or rock the clothing and styles you wear. Think about how your clothes make you feel, and also think about what they say to others. If your closet is full of hand-me-downs, or it is full of clothes that no longer suit (or fit you), then be prepared to change these and start again. All clothes and accessories in your closet must let your personality shine through, and they must not hinder you in any way.
Separate Looks and Styles
As you are putting together a closet once more (now with outfits and accessories that you love), it is important to separate looks and styles. When you separate styles and looks, you can quickly reach for what you want to wear and use. For example, if you are going for a more theatrical look and style, then ensure all clothing and theatrical makeup supplies are kept together. This way, you can quickly and easily put together an outfit without having to rummage for all the key pieces (and accessories) that you need. When you separate looks and styles, you also ensure you have capsules and outfits that are ready to go (dependent on how you feel, and on what look you want to portray).
No matter how small your closet is, there is always the opportunity to coordinate clothing and accessories by color. When you color coordinate in your closet, you not only save time, but also make sure you can wear and use those favorite pieces that you love and adore. If you do not use any color coordination in your closet, you may find that you overlook outfits or styles, and instead, you revert to using just a few pieces.
