Pick Your Outfit in 60 Seconds- Closet Organization

Happy Tuesday, Ya’ll!

 

Something that causes a huge struggle for millions of people everyday is getting out of the house on time for work…Sound like you?

The closet organization that I have done has helped me pick out an outfit in 60 seconds flat (something that has greatly reduced the morning stressors).

No, this is not my closet, but a great example of closet organization. This makes getting ready in the morning, that much more efficient.

This closet organization may seem like extreme OCD, but it works.

Let’s get started!

 

1.) Spring cleaning! Although it’s not Spring yet, you can get a head start by getting rid out those garments that you haven’t worn in years. This in mandatory step in the process. You will be surprised to see all of the items that you find in the back of your closet.

When cleaning out your closet, remember these three criteria:

  • Have I worn this item in the past year?
  • Does this fit/Is this still flattering on me?
  • If I were to see this in the store right now, would I buy it again?

 

2.) The key when organizing your closet is separating the garments by:

  1. Occasion (casual, formal, date night, dresses, business attire, etc)
  2. Sleeve length
  3. Color

It’s best to do this section by section.

 

These closet tags are game changers. They help you keep your clothes sectioned off and allow you to pick out your outfits in a quick and efficient fashion.

Let me break this down with an example, let’s use casual tops… I put all of my casual tops in a section together, (you can go from right to left or right to left, whatever works for you) then I put all of my tank tops together, and go from lights to darks. Next I move on to the short sleeves, then the long sleeves.

If you want to take your closet to the next level, I would change over your hangers from plastic to velvet. This is something I am in the process of doing, and I already love the difference.

I know it may sound like this is a huge project, but it’s worth the time investment. The amount of time you save getting ready in the morning will change your day.

Now put aside the time and get your closet organized 🙂

With Love,

Jenna
