Purge Your Summer Wardrobe Before The Weather Heats Up

Purge Your Summer Wardrobe Before The Weather Heats Up

June 19, 2019

Summer means warmer weather and the chance to break out those shorts and skirts in celebration of the season. Still, it can be hard to find your favorite summer pieces if your closet is still packed with heavy sweaters and ski attire. At Closet World, we understand the need to purge your wardrobe on a regular basis. Check out our tips for organizing your closet in time for the start of summer.

Relocate Winter Wear

Before the mercury hits a high, think about moving cold-weather clothes out of your closet to create space. If you have a large walk-in closet, you might consider stowing heavier garments in storage bags at the back of the space or in boxes on hard-to-reach shelves. Dealing with a small closet? Opt to keep sweaters and tweeds in storage boxes under the bed or tucked away in the attic. For best results, make sure to clean all clothes before putting them away and store them in sealed containers to prevent bugs and moths.

Ditch Old and Under-Utilized Pieces

Summer is a great time to take inventory of your existing wardrobe. Before packing up your winter wear, consider which pieces you’re likely to use in six months when it gets cold again. If you didn’t wear something last winter, you probably won’t in the coming year, so think about tossing or donating pieces that don’t make the cut. Similarly, items that didn’t see the light of day last summer are unlikely to witness the sunshine this season. Here are a few questions to ask yourself when deciding which items to keep and which to send packing:

  • Does the piece fit?
  • Is it in good condition?
  • Is it comfortable?
  • Do I look and feel good while wearing this item?
  • Am I looking forward to wearing it again?

If the answer to any of these questions is no, it might be time to toss it.

Improve Your Organization

Of course, cleaning out your closet is only half the battle. You still need to find a way of organizing your storage space so you can view your possessions at a glance. After all, if you can’t see that skirt or pair of sandals, you’re unlikely to remember you own it. To that end, it’s not enough to purge your closet of unwanted pieces. You also have to find a way to organize your storage space. At Closet World, we recommend installing adjustable shelving so you can stow everything from purses and boots to jeans and sweaters. Additionally, we recommend shoe racks that allow you to organize footwear by style.
