We have talked about getting a new haircut, new clothes, and shoes but I think one important thing you should focus on this year is How to Organize your Men’s Closet.
We are always busy doing our daily activities and dressing for different events and we end up putting our clothes anywhere.
Maybe you don’t even have a lot of time to spend organizing all your wardrobe, right?
The tip here is, if you take one day to organize everything you have, it will be so much easier to maintain it organized after that.
I tell you, you will just automatically put everything in place because you know what goes where. This is for my own experience.
You will also see how much stuff you have that you haven’t used or don’t use anymore. Maybe you just don’t need that much clothing stocked in your closet and why not give it for the people that need it.
There are so many charity institutions that would love to receive some fashion clothes from you, and that would even pick it up at your house. Think about that:).
The way that I like to think is, “if in this whole year I didn’t wear this or that piece of clothing, why would I just keep it in my closet occupying all the space?”. You need also to renovate and find some good new clothes for you.
“So how can I start organizing my whole closet?”
Let’s start going step by step:
Get rid of your old stuff
Take everything in your closet that you don’t wear. I know you got attached to it but think about renovation, and for that to work you need to unattach from the old stuff you have. Unclutter that closet!
Little Fun here lol!
What I like to do is organize T-shirts by colors and the ones that have graphics on it. You should already have everything out of your closet, so choose a place that you think will be perfect for the t-shirts section.
Go ahead and separate all the colors including t-shirts with graphics on it. Then what you will do is place the t-shirts organized by color and hang them.
With the same color, t-shirts keep the ( Plain T-shirts on the left ) and ( T-shirts with graphics on the right ) and so on for the other colors. It should look like this:
Dress Shirts and Suits
With this section of Dress Shirts, you should do the same thing and arrange them by colors as well. We often use different type of colors so remember to separate the plaid shirts as well. For the Suits and Blazers besides colors, separate them by fabric wool, cotton, linen etc…
Jeans and Pants
I would suggest you hang your Jeans and Pants because they tend to get wrinkles. You should already know how important it is to never wear clothes that are wrinkled.
If you don’t have much space in your closet at least hang the pants and leave the jeans folded.
Shoes and Accessories :
The best way to organize shoes and accessories is to make them visible. Like I mentioned before, you want to be sure you will see everything you have to make the best option for your outfit.
You don’t want to be going from box to box trying to find what you are looking for. A shoe rack is extremely helpful if you don’t have a space built in for shoes in your closet.
Plus you can also place it underneath the hangers to make usage of all space you have. The same thing for watches, sunglasses, bracelets etc…
You can always buy some nice rack to place them and maybe a portable one so when you are traveling you can take everything at once. That’s what I do !:).
For my Ties and Belts, I hang everything. I have some nice hangers I bought that is proper for the two. Once again, you don’t want to fold your ties because it can get wrinkled and if you fold your belts unproperly, it will leave marks that will damage them.
Stay Classy, Marcos Silva.
