Daisy’s Style Diary: Do’s And Don’ts Of Organizing Your Wardrobe

4th Oct 2013 / By Daisy Lewellyn


In celebration of the official Get Organized Week, I wanted to share some of my favorite ways that I like to keep my closets put together and really easy to navigate through. You will see that the ongoing theme for each category is that you always want to be able to clearly see everything in your wardrobe tangle and mess free. Try one or all o f my do’s and toss the don’ts from your life. Hey, you can put more time into styling your outfits instead of rumbling through piles and piles of a pretty huge mess.

JEWELRY

DO: Lay your jewelry flat on bakers’ trays or in a drawer. Ikea has a great custom closet system where you can add sliding drawer to your closet. I keep all of my jewelry in them, and it looks like a pretty fancy boutique. Everything is there: my necklaces, rings, cuffs and mroe. Neat, chic and ready to be piled on.

DON’T: Load all of your jewelry in bags or even boxes. They tangle like crazy, and you can never see how grand your collection truly is. Jewelry tress tend to look a little messy if you have more than 4 necklaces, and come on, you’re a JustFab girl, so I know you do!

CLOTHES

DO: Opt for thin hangers in the same color that can double, sometimes even triple the space use of your closet. Stores like TJ Maxx & Marshalls always have them on sale for about $12 for a pack of 15. Hang your clothes by color and then by shape. It makes getting dressed easier and styling your looks so much more fun.

DON’T: Double your clothes on one hanger. You always want to be able to clearly see what you have in the closet and fast. And if you don’t wear it for the day, immediately stick it back on the hanger and into the closet. Maintaining the closet as you go along is much easier than tackling a huge pile on the floor that been hanging out for a week.

SHOES

DO: Line your shoes up in color order, and then by style and height in an open space where you can clearly see them without making any moves or shifts. I like to store them in clear boxes from the Container Store with a picture of the shoe on the outside. They are stackable and easy to transport when moving apartments or dorms.

DON’T: Toss your shoes in bins or baskets. Why? Because you will never get to the bottom and see those pumps that you love so much but just forgot about.

BAGS & CLUTCHES

DO: Stack your clutches like envelopes in an accordion style. Shelving is my favorite way to store my bags. It’s easy to see them all, and the wall space where they live keeps your floors clutter-free. Loewes has a variety of shelves with wallpaper, or go cheap and chic and use drawer liners from the Macbeth Collection.

DON’T: Pile your bags on top of each other. It only crushes them and makes them lose shape.
