This time of year becomes difficult in many places around the country as it is not warm enough to tuck away the thick knits, and it’s definitely not warm enough to go sans sleeves. As your wardrobe transitions, your closet should too. An organized closet will save you time and sanity, as it will seamlessly fit into your lifestyle. Here are some tips on how your wardrobe, and closet, can play nice with the seasons.
Layering is crucial when between two seasons as you’ll have to be prepared for varied weather reports. Lightweight jackets and coats are good when transitioning from winter to spring, and even from summer to fall. They’ll offer a bit of protection and warmth and can easily be shed if it gets too warm. Scarves are also ideal transition pieces as they come in a variety of materials, styles, and prints that can fit into any season or personal style.
Your closet’s design can follow suit. Lots of layers will be the key to having an organized closet system. Different layers for pants, shirts, dresses, boots, shoes, and everything in between will make sure you have easy access to your whole wardrobe.
To be prepared for anything you need options. You’ll need access to even more options than when you’re settled into a season, so don’t condemn your chunky knits to the basement or under the bed storage just yet.
With your closet system, you can utilize pull out storage and racks. Try a retractable valet rod, which is a great way to plan ahead for tomorrow. Pull out shoe racks are also quite common as they allow you to make the most of your space, while neatly concealing them away when needed. When using up every inch of your closet, keep the essentials at eye level with the less significant pieces farther up or down from your line of sight. Blouses, t-shirts, pants, or skirts (items you wear most often regardless of the season), should be closer at hand. Items that will be used in the upcoming season should also be closer at hand.
Transitioning your wardrobe will often mean phasing out pieces that won’t be needed and bringing in pieces that will see more wear in the upcoming season. As you are doing this, it will be an optimal time to start cleaning out your closet so you’re ready for the next year. Be prepared to donate pieces that haven’t seen the light of day for longer than you can remember. Say goodbye to pieces that don’t fit. Think of this as a way to make room for new pieces rather than a complete toss out, especially if you’re tight on space.
