Fall is here! For many people in the northern New Jersey area, the change of seasons also means a change in wardrobe. It can be challenging to make your closet reflect the summer-to-fall switch, but we’re here to help. In this blog post, we’ll talk about ways to get organized and ready your closet for fall.
Put Away Summer Clothes
The average person’s closet doesn’t have enough space to hold an entire wardrobe year-round. That means in order to make room for what you’ll need now, the seasonal rotation must take place. Go through the clothes in your closet and take out any summer clothes that you won’t need until next year. Shorts, tank tops, and sundresses are some of the obvious items. This also applies to shoes, like sandals and flip-flops. If you won’t be using it, there’s no use in it taking up valuable space in your closet. There are many options for storing out-of-season clothes and shoes, including packing them in boxes, bins, or suitcases and putting them under your bed or in your home’s storage room.
Get Rid Of What You Don’t Want
Now that your fall clothes are front and center, it’s a good time to go through your closet and get rid of the ones you don’t want or need. This will create more breathing room in your closet, as well as free up space for any new items you may acquire this season. A good rule of thumb is if you haven’t worn it in the past year, you probably won’t miss it. You can bring your used items to a local Essex County donation center.
Organize The Remaining Items
After you’ve gone through and cleaned out your closet, it’s time to organize your remaining items. Some people like to arrange things by article (placing all the sweaters together), while others sort their clothes by keeping whole outfits together. If you find you don’t have the closet storage you want, it might be time to consider looking at designing your own custom closet. This is the ideal way to get the most out of your space, as a custom closet is designed around the space you have with your specific needs in mind.
Now that fall is officially here, it’s time to bring your closet up to speed.
