Here at Carrie Parry, we believe in investing in classic, well-made items to construct a wardrobe of timeless value. Of course, once you’ve amassed an enviable collection, it’s important to make sure that your apparel and accessories are organized properly. Below, we provide our best tips to keep your closet looking as beautiful as the items you store within it.
Keep your wardrobe perfectly paired down. Reverse all the hangers in your closet so that they face backward. Every time you wear an item, flip the hanger forward. At the end of six months, if you find an item hasn’t been worn, you might consider donating it.
Organize your jewelry. You can purchase a jewelry tree for your necklaces to place on a shelf, or simply use hooks mounted onto the back of your closet door. This will make it easier for you to choose how to accessorize after you dress, too. Rings and bracelets can be placed neatly in a drawer, stored in a jewelry box, or tucked into cloth jewelry pouches.
Handbags should never be hung. The weight of the purse will weaken its straps and may even distort its shape. Instead, stuff with tissue paper and designate separate shelf space.
Have a lot of scarves, gloves, and hats? Consider purchasing storage containers for each. Vintage-style hatboxes, especially in fun colors and patterns, are a super stylish way to stow these items.
