9 Closet Hacks That Will Help You Dress Better
Use these simple techniques to tame your wardrobe in 30 minutes or less.
1. Hang by Category
Felice recommends, “For hanging clothes, break them down by style. When organizing tops, for example, hang by short sleeve, long sleeve, then sport coats, and so on. Same with pants: dress, khakis, jeans – then by color. Then you can see what you have, and it’s easier and takes less time to put together an outfit.” If possible, she says, fold items like sweaters (for longevity) and sweatshirts (because they’re probably not what you’re picking out for work in the morning). If you need to hang them, however, do so in groups.
The same rules apply for folded clothing: keep separate by style, with one shelf (or drawer) for t-shirts, sweatshirts, sweaters, and so on.
2. Tie Rack
Picking up a horizontally-oriented tie rack is a great place to start, and Ties.com has you covered with a bunch of styles depending on your space and how many ties you have. These racks are a life-saver and are one of my favorite closet organization ideas.
