We all know that sorting out clothes, shoes and bags can be some people’s worse nightmare. Keeping your wardrobe organised will make life stress-free but what to keep and what to get rid of can sometimes be chaotic.

This guide will unveil the secrets of the "craft" of keeping your wardrobe up to date and always well-organised.
There are different ways of dividing and sorting your clothing and accessories, below the easiest and the most effective.
Dividing Your Wardrobe
The easiest way to sort out your pile of clothes is by dividing each clothing piece into categories. For example, all blazers and jackets will be together, all bottoms – such as skirts, shorts, jeans and trousers – will be next to one another. Therefore, when looking for a jacket to match your jeans, you can see them all against each other and, for that reason, styling an outfit would be simpler. Also, when buying more clothes on a shopping spree you will know what items you may need or want to replace, due to all categories being in one place.
An example of this method is the image below, where all the tops are hung together.

The Colour Technique
Another way to organise your wardrobe in a very therapeutic way is by colour coordination. Starting with whites, light pastels, beiges to browns, greys and blacks, making your very own rainbow in your closet. This way, colours are easier to pick out and complement each other. Some of you may have a more neutral rainbow, while others may have bright, bold colours; either way, this is a great way to section your wardrobe to know where everything is and to keep your clothes, looking aesthetically pleasing.

Address The Seasons
The last way to arrange your closet is by season, which is a great way to store your clothes in a time when you may not need them.
Winter clothes are bulky and thick compared to the clothes you wear during the summer period. Therefore, it is undeniable that you may need more closet space in the coldest months. Instead of throwing your favourite summer dresses which – you know well – you will not be able to wear, store them. It could be in a suitcase, a box or in a spare room to maintain their quality, just be careful not to store them anywhere damp. This simple way of separating clothes to weather-coordinated will save you storage and money, while also keeping your wardrobe tidy and accessible. Make sure to keep those statement pieces and give away those that are purely a miss.
With these three tips on the ways to organise your wardrobe, you should have a tidy and iconic setup in no time – just without the hassle.
Many people dream of building the perfect walk-in wardrobe. Luxurious, spacious, glamorous, with or without an island, with plenty of shoe storage – everyone has different tastes when it comes to designing their dream dressing room.
As we make our way through the start of a new year, it's time to step up on those new years' resolutions.
