Bows, Buckles and Plaid







One of the most important tools of a fashionista is the closet. Every closet looks and is shaped differently. This allows a person to make their own personal statement on how they organize it. The most common ways to do so are by color, style, type, or sometimes more than one. These methods make it easier when looking for that final piece to finish your look. If you don’t organize your closet and that works for you, keep it that way. But, if you are one of those people that find it hard to put together an outfit because you are always searching through a mess. I suggest you take out all of your clothes and set them on your bed. This allows you to straighten, sort, and hang up clothes individually. While cleaning your closet, you should take advantage of getting rid of those pieces you don’t wear anymore that have become clutter. With all the new space, you will have room for new pieces. Sometimes your closet can get messy quickly, so I find it best to resort every 3-4 months.

For my own own closet, I sort by type. I used to sort by color, but since my closet is so oddly shaped any dresses or long sleeves must go on the bottom. After sorting several times, I found the system that works for me. Using wall hooks and shelves I keep all my accessories in order and on display. I find easiest to plan an outfit when I can see everything I own. To avoid clutter, each time I buy something new, I look at my closet and try to find a piece of clothing I haven’t worn in the last five months. If you haven’t been wearing, you don’t need it.

Sorry there was no outfit post, I’ve had to work all week and haven’t had enough time for photos. -Olivia
