A change of season marks a change of many things, such as your clothing. Right now is the perfect time to think about switching out your summer shorts and dresses to make room for all those cosy jumpers and warm coats. Transitioning your wardrobe for winter may seem like a drag, but we’re here to make the process as painless as possible. Editing what’s in your wardrobe and getting organised will make life easier when it comes to getting dressed in the morning. Believe us. Follow these simple steps and you’ll soon be on your way to winter wardrobe bliss.
Step 1: Keep or chuck?
A new season is a good time to take stock of what’s in your wardrobe by deciding what to keep and what to throw out or donated to charity. Taking each piece and asking yourself these questions is a good way to check:
- Have I worn it in the past six months?
- Does it have holes, stains or is it looking worn out?
- Does it fit?
- Does it need to be altered?
- Do I really need 15 plain white tees?!
Step 2: Store or display?
Make space for your winter items by swapping out specific spring/summer pieces. Gauzy, thin fabrics, shorts, sandals, tanks and strappy light dresses can be stored away. Your favourite winter items, such as coats or jackets, should be displayed front and center on hangers so you can easily grab them and go. If you have the option and space permits, creating a separate coat-only closet means they won’t be crammed in with the rest of your wardrobe and lose their shape.
Step 3: Get folding!
Bulkier items such as knitted jumpers, cardigans, hoodies, pullovers and jeans can take up precious hanging space. Folding and stacking these items from heaviest to lightest weight are a great way to maximise closet space.
Step 4: Organise your accessories
Winter is all about accessories – scarves, hats, belts, gloves – you name it, winter has it. When transitioning over your wardrobe, think about a way to display these items that makes them easily accessible. This could be hanging them over a railing or on utility hooks, which can be moved around where needed.
