8 TIPS TO ORGANIZE YOUR CLOSET IN SUMMER

8 TIPS TO ORGANIZE YOUR CLOSET IN SUMMER

It is the season to bring out all your bright, airy dresses and keep away those heavy winter clothes! Here are a few tips to get your closet ready to enjoy the sun, blooming nature and at times a bit of rain!

1. Store your winter clothes – store your sweaters, blazers, shawls…after getting them cleaned. Fold and arrange them neatly inside spacious organizers which can be tucked away in the attic, loft or under the bed. This way, they won’t take up space inside your closet.

2. Get rid of clothes that you no longer wear – no matter how trendy an outfit, if you haven’t worn it in over a year, it’s time to give it away or donate to a charity. For expensive clothes, you can either try to sell it online or to a second hand shop. Also if a piece of clothing is smelly, has stubborn old stains, itches or doesn’t fit, it is time to consider losing them. We know it’s difficult, but still!

3. Special care for delicate clothes – when you arranging those sheer summer fabrics in your closet make sure the hangers don’t snag on silk or chiffon materials.

4. Dresses with fragile embellishments – when you hang them in the closet, make sure they don’t get squished among other stuff. Try to give them some space.

5. Hanging long dresses – make sure they don’t touch the floor of the closet…the hemlines will tend to get dirty!

6. Summer accessories – Now is the time to show off those funky fashion jewelry, cool sunglasses, or that hot bikini you have been dying to wear. Use drawer organizers to keep even the smallest things, neatly and within easy reach. See: http://tinyurl.com/uberlyfe-drawer-organizer

7. Summer shoes and bags – shoes like sandals and flip flops are usually light, fun and are in bright, fun colors! They won’t take up much space inside your closet. Or use the closet doors to hang them up. Same goes for bags too and use big bags to hold the smaller ones.

8. One last thing – Try and sort stuff in your closet according to color or type, whichever suits your need. So put shirts together, frocks together, a separate section for pants or long dresses and so on. This will make finding things easy!
