Summer is here and it’s time to start thinking about what you’re going to wear this year. As with so many other things in life, being prepared is half the battle.
If your clothes are organized so that you can find what you want quickly and easily, then you’re already on your way to looking your best. Nothing is worse than spending the morning tearing through your closet looking for your lucky presentation outfit and not being able to find it anywhere.
Having a system – and sticking with it – can really save time and reduce stress. So here are three easy steps to help you organize your summer wardrobe.
Step One – Out with the Old
Start by getting rid of old clothes that, for one reason or another, you know you won’t wear again. This will help you focus on organizing the summer clothes you actually will wear. As for the old items, you can donate them, pass them on to a friend or family member, or even try selling them online.
When it comes to making decisions, a good rule of thumb is: if you didn’t wear it last summer, you probably won’t wear it this summer either.
Step Two – Organize
There are different ways to approach this, but we recommend organizing by function. So, have one section of your closet for everyday work clothes; one for special work clothes (for example, presentation or meeting outfits); one section for casual week-end wear; one section for party clothes; and so on. Let your wardrobe and your lifestyle guide you in deciding exactly what sections you need.
Step Three – Stay Organized
This is the hard part. Too often, even the best-planned system falls apart after a couple of laundry cycles. Do your best to put things away according to the system you’ve established.
The small investment of time required to stay organized will pay big dividends by saving time and reducing stress when you’re putting together the perfect outfit the morning of a big meeting or presentation.
