Closets are a very personal thing. Your closet contains all the clothes that you dress yourself with – and, for the most part, you’re the only one who steps foot inside it on a daily basis. I’m always so interested to get a peek into people’s closets. I love to see their whole wardrobe together as one, and I also love to find out how their closets are organized. Whether our clothes are perfectly organized or thrown all over the place, we all have some form of a system that lets us know where we can find that piece we need to complete our outfit.
Be sure to comment and let us know how you organize yours!
“At the moment, my closet is not quite up to par in the organization game, but my normal way of going about things is ordering all my clothes by style and then color. I actually learned that trick when I interned in the web studio last summer! I separate all my bottoms to the right side of my closet and all my tops to the left. I’ll start with tanks and work my way to long sleeve pieces, ordering them by color as I go, from lightest to darkest. I have a lot of space in my closet, though, so it is easy for things to get cluttered. My next project is finding a better way to organize my shoes instead of just throwing them on the ground in a big pile like they are now… whoops. If you have the space, use it wisely!“
A glimpse into the Free People studio…
I try to have my clothing ordered by color, from light to dark. That’s the general idea, but what really ends up happening is that putting away my clothes turns into an art project for me. Every time I hang a piece up, I take a step back and see how it looks in that spot, among the clothes that surround it. If it doesn’t feel right, I move it into all different spots until I’m satisfied. Then, when I’m looking for a certain item, the only way I know how to find it is if I can remember where I put it. A weird system, indeed, but it works for me!
