Perhaps an obvious first step, but an important starting point. Pull everything out, go through piece by piece, try everything on (EVERYTHING), and donate/consign/toss whatever is no longer your style, size, or taste. If it has stains or holes, move it along. No longer fits? Think you might wear it again ‘someday’? It's time to go. Pair it all back to only the pieces you regularly wear and make you feel GOOD. A good rule of thumb - if you haven’t worn it in the last 3-6 months, it’s time to pass it along.
TWO: MATCH YOUR HANGERS
The easiest and most impactful way to overhaul your closet is to invest in a set of matching hangers. Going for something neutral like white, wood, or black is our preference, being sure you buy enough to ebb and flow as your wardrobe changes over time. The visual streamline this simple task creates is astounding.
THREE: INTENTIONAL PLACEMENT
When putting items back into your closet, arrange by style and then colour. Group everything into categories - T-shirt’s, long sleeves, dress shirts, sweaters, pants... and then within the categories, organize by colour - light to dark, and ‘ROYGBV’. The visual impact is significant, creating a foolproof system to motivate and maintain your neat and tidy closet for years to come.
