Do you ever see those celebrity closets and drool over the organization, neatness, and pleasingly aesthetic look to it all? Well I do, and I’m here to tell you that while my closet is a far cry from looking like a celebrity closet, I have a method to share with you all to give you your own ‘celebrity’ feel to your own closet. Coloring coding. I’ve been using this method in my closet for many years now. It has made my closet neater, simple, and less cluttered.
Color-coding simple means arranging all similar colors together. So you would organize your whites with the whites, and black with blacks. I choose to go with a contrasting scheme, starting with the lighter colors on one end, and ending it with the darkest. Being able to see all my clothes sectioned off by color, keeps me informed about what I have in my wardrobe, and makes my wardrobe selection so much easier. If I’m feeling a certain color based on an event or my mood, I simple go to that section and pick my choice from that group. For those printed tops, well I simple pick the most dominant color base and add it to that section. This method keeps things easy and simple.
First step is to make piles of all the different color palettes you have in your wardrobe. Once you’ve done this, I like to then section my items by length. So within that color, I will place all the sleeveless shirts first, ending with long sleeve shirts. This is the most time consuming part of this method, and it may get overwhelming moving things back and forth, but it will be worth it. I too have some shirts that may not be in the exact correct color group, but the main factor is to build a pronounced color group, to make it easier when new items come into the closet to find its place. With moving so often, I’ve also found this helpful when unpacking my wardrobe into my new closet. It makes it quick to unpack, and keeps things looking the same as I had it before. So if you’re due for some spring-cleaning, or organizing your wardrobe, try this method out and see if it helps and works for you! I’ve even got my husbands side color coordinated too, which he appreciates!
