How to organise your Wardrobe

It’s so annoying to see a messed up wardrobe. An organised wardrobe, on the other hand, gives a feeling of supreme accomplishment and satisfaction.

However well-intentioned you might be, your wardrobe will inevitably get messed up, especiallyat the change of a season. Many people wardrobes are a mash up of autumn, winter and spring clothing, all jostling for room inside.

Keeping too many clothes in your wardrobe makes it difficult to find the garment of your choice every morning. Eventually, things hit crisis point and you end up feeling like you have nothing to wear.

Here are some tips to arrange your wardrobe.

Allow plenty of time

Sorting out your wardrobe is not an easy job, so do not forget to allocate at least two hours to the task. Secondly, never arrange your wardrobe in bit and pieces; you actually need to tackle everything at the same time to get your job done properly.

Empty your wardrobe

Start by taking everything out of your wardrobe and throwing all your things on your bed. Make several piles to see what is going back in and what needs to be stored elsewhere, sold or recycled. Now, work through each pile in a systematic manner and see what you need to make your priority.

Clothes usage and condition

Place new and good condition clothes that you wear often in the middle and front of your wardrobe, so that you can pick them out whenever you need them. Make a separate section for party dresses, wedding dresses and formal wear. Be ruthless. If you love a party dress, but it is worn out, let it go and try to sell it on if you can. If it is still in a good enough condition for you to get more wear out of it somewhere new, then place it somewhere nearer the back, making sure you can still reach it if needs be. Put the opposite season’s clothes in another wardrobe if you have space in the room, or pack them away in storage boxes using acid-free tissue paper.

Charity clothes

Create a charity pile for dresses and outfits which are not right for you anymore. Plan where you would like to send these clothes as a donation and make sure you take the clothes along sooner rather than later as they will annoy you if they hang around your bedroom for too long.

Make a throw out pile

A throw-out pile must include clothes which are too worn, too stained or which cannot be repaired. It’s better not to send really damaged clothes to charity, since volunteers will need to work extra hard to make them wearable and it may not be worth their while.

Have a variety of hangers

Since, you have a variety of dresses so you should have the same variety in hangers to help lengthen the life of your clothes. Go for flocked hangers from top quality brands. This will save a lot of space in the wardrobe. You can also buy fancy timber hangers which offer more vertical space for longer garments.

Arrange by colour

Many people like to arrange clothes by colour. For example, grouping all tees and tops together and then ordering them from white to black along the colour spectrum. This shows any colour gaps you may have in your clothing collection and helps you find the shade you need more easily when getting dressed.

Get help if you need it

If you can’t or don’t want to arrange your wardrobe by yourself, then phone a friend to help you out. Just tell your friend what you want to keep and what you don’t and ask him or her for suggestions if you are unsure. Keep the clothes you feel good in and ditch the rest; perhaps your friend might be able to make use of them instead?

Make a list of things you need

As you are putting things back in the wardrobe, check if you need to buy any new clothes by analysing the gaps. For example, are you missing any jeans, shorts, trousers, dresses and shoes in neutral or colours?

Go shopping with your list in your hand

Take the list of wardrobe gaps  with you next time you hit the shops. Just concentrate on that list and do not buy anything else that you might be tempted by.

Resounding Praise for Amal Alamuddin’s Designer Wedding Style

amal alamuddin

Human rights lawyer, Amal Alamuddin looked stunning in a series of designer wedding outfits when she tied the knot earlier this month. Her look came courtesy of several top designers, including Oscar de la Renta, Stella McCartney Giambattista Valli and Dolce & Gabbana.

Amal Alamuddin, 36, married actor George Clooney in a romantic ceremony in Venice. She received huge plaudits from everyone thanks to her incredible Hollywood-inspired style.

Amal wore several outfits during her wedding celebrations. Fashion magazine, Vogue, published many pictures of her look, including her main off-the-shoulder wedding gown, covered in flowing layers of beautiful net material and designed by Oscar de la Renta.

“George and I wanted a wedding that was romantic and elegant, and I can’t imagine anyone more able than Oscar to capture this mood in a dress,” the British-Lebanese bride told Vogue. The editor of the magazine, Anna Wintour, attended the wedding and noted “she stands resplendent in her dress.”

De La Renta, who designs dreamy, feminine dresses, created Alamddin’s post wedding outfit too, which Vogue described as a “festive, Gatsby-style party frock’’. George Clooney looked dapper too, in a wedding suit designed by Giorgio Armani.

The couple’s wedding has been compared with the royal wedding of Kate Middleton and Prince William in April 2011.

Kate, Duchess of Cambridge, is now a style icon for many, as her dresses represent the very best of high fashion. She features regularly in Vanity Fair’s annual best dressed lists.

Amal and George’s wedding was attended by several celebrities, including Matt Damon, Bill Murray and Cindy Crawford and was captured by photographers following the couple throughout the weekend as they celebrated their wedding at a series of events.

Amal changed her look for her civil wedding ceremony, swapping her bridal dress for a chic white trouser and top, offset with black trim, which was created by British designer, Stella McCartney. The outfit drew on effortless coastal fashion; a theme already embraced by Amal as she arrived in Venice in a black and white Dolce & Gabbana maxi dress.

The new Mrs. Clooney left Venice by speedboat, dressed in an embroidered bell skirted dress by Italian designer, Giambattista Valli.
