Spring is just around the corner, which makes it the perfect time to prepare your spring wardrobe. Preparing your wardrobe in advance will ensure that you are prepared for the new season when it arrives in a few short weeks. It will also help keep your closet organized since you’ll be able to store or move items you won’t be using over the next few months. Here are some tips that can help you get your spring wardrobe ready as quickly and easily as possible.
Tips for Preparing Your Spring Wardrobe
You probably have clothes in good condition from last spring, but that doesn’t necessarily mean that you should take them all out of storage. It’s a good idea to get rid of anything that is stained or in poor condition as well as items that no longer suit your style. Take a moment to think about the colors and styles you feel comfortable wearing and only take out the clothes and accessories that you will enjoy wearing this spring. Trying on your clothes can be a hassle but it is one of the only ways to make sure items fit and that you enjoy wearing it. This will help you plan outfit ideas in advance.
Once you have separated the clothes you intend to keep, put them away in the closet. If you still have too many items, consider another round of purging or upgrading your storage system. Stuffing too many clothing items into a small wardrobe will result in misshapen clothing items and can also increase the odds of clothing being damaged by mold or mildew. Custom closet systems from Closet & Storage Concepts can help you increase your storage space while protecting your clothes.
Storing Winter Clothes
Winter clothes should never be stored dirty. Wash them or have them dry cleaned if need be, make sure they are dry, and then store them in plastic containers. Remove belts from any winter pants you are putting in storage since storing belts with pants will stretch out belt loops. Avoid packing too many clothes in a single container as clothes can be damaged if they are squished too tightly. At the same time, make sure your containers are properly sealed so that dust and pests do not cause havoc to your clothes. The weather between winter and spring can be unpredictable, so keep a few sweaters or a thick jacket in case the temperatures drop.
Don’t feel pressured to get your spring wardrobe ready all at once. Take a couple of weeks to go through your spring and winter clothing to decide what to store, what to keep, and what to discard. Taking the time to prep or even try a capsule wardrobe can help you stay organized in the new season.
