Peering into a wardrobe can be overwhelming if things are messy. When it’s hard to find clothing items, people tend to think that they have nothing to wear—even if there are enough things stuffed inside to start a retail store. Knowing how to declutter and get organized is just as important as designing a functional, personalized space. This is how to make your wardrobe pretty and turn over a new fashion leaf.
Start Fresh and Continuously Edit
A pretty wardrobe starts with a fresh slate. Go through every clothing item in the wardrobe and sort things into ‘discard’, ‘maybe’, and ‘keep’ piles. If an item of clothing has been forgotten about or not worn in the last six months, it’s time to get rid of it. After an initial style purge, keep things manageable by implementing a one-in-one-out policy. Any time a new item is bought, part ways with an old item. This avoids hoarding clothes that are outdated or that no longer fit.
Sweaters are notoriously bulky and challenging to keep neatly stacked. When sales happen remembering to continuously edit the wardrobe comes in handy. Designer clothes from INHABIT blend luxury with fluid design. With seasonal markdowns and free, flat-rate shipping around the world, any wardrobe can be made pretty with a luxurious quality statement piece from INHABIT NY.
Become an Organized Aficionado
Become an organized aficionado by separating clothing based on category and color. It makes things look neat and saves time when getting dressed. Use matching hangers to make the wardrobe look tidy and use organizational boxes in drawers. Separate clothing by season. If space is an issue, divvy clothes up by summer and winter and swap out wardrobes when the weather changes.
A Place for Everything and Everything in its Place
The key to a pretty wardrobe is designated a place for everything and keeping everything in the right place. For shoes kept in boxes, tape photos of the shoes to the outside of the boxes to easily identify what’s what. Make sure that expensive items are properly cared for and have a reserved place that keeps them clean and maintain their quality.
If space is limited, install a wall shelf that can be used to display pretty items, like hats, jewelry boxes, belts, or purses. A free-standing clothing rack works for hanging things that won’t fit in the closet. Keeping items in plain sight can encourage staying organized and tidy. Another open storage option is to create a display wall to show off shoes, bags, hats, or other statement accessories.
Design a Functional Space
A custom-built wardrobe doesn’t have to break the bank. Work with the available space and find the right way to maximize it. Start with taking accurate measurements of the space where the wardrobe will go and then create a functional storage space. Think vertical shoe storage, shelving for t-shirts and sweaters, small drawers for lingerie and socks, and hanging space for coats and dresses.

Add Some Flair
Dress up a wardrobe by adding some flair. Pull-out drawers are perfect for displaying jewelry and accessories. Wire baskets are more attractive than plastic ones to use as laundry baskets. Full length or tabletop mirrors help make a room look bigger and they are useful for modeling outfits. Play up the hardware on drawers and cabinets to give an extra pop of interest.
