Everybody wants to start the new year with refreshing changes. Kelly Mize Holley, closet organization guru and personal shopper for the website tulsastyle.co, gives tips on how to keep the “new you” organized, all the way from your winter boots to your summer dresses.
Put clothes you haven’t been wearing in a box for a month. If you don’t wear or need any of it, don’t even open the box. Just donate or sell it.
2. Stop hoarding.
Have a million pairs of jeans, sweaters or T-shirts? Set a timer for 15 minutes and try on as many of them as you can. Get rid of whatever isn’t working for you.
3. Store away your out-of-season items.
Put them in a different closet, or fold up items and put them away. The more you have in your closet that you can’t wear, the more confusing it will be to get ready in the morning.
4. Class up your hangers.
Elevate your closet with velvet non-slip hangers that take better care of your clothes and keep them from falling off. Buy them in bulk, or one package at a time.
Based off which item you typically center your outfit on, set those selections in your line-of-sight first so you can work in order of how you get dressed. If you decide your tops first for your outfit, then put your tops at the “beginning” of your closet. Then work your way through to your accessories at the “end.”
6. Hang a hook.
This is a cheap and easy step. Raid your closet a night ahead, hanging your next-day outfit on a hook in your closet to save you time and stress in the morning.
Holley’s last piece of advice is, “If you don’t love it, don’t buy it.” Never settle for it just because it’s inexpensive or convenient.
