Time To Revamp Your Closet; Find New Inspirations for your Wardrobe!How often do you visit our closet? Is closet clutter holding your back?
Once, twice, maybe even three times a day, to find that you’re not inspired with your wardrobe. Do you find yourself talking to your closet more than it talks to you? Does it reflect your style or personality? We offer key insights on how to dress like a professional woman
Closets are easy to neglect especially when no one sees them but you. Just because it remains hidden from view doesn’t mean it can’t be beautiful and inviting. Wouldn’t getting dressed in the morning be that much more pleasant if it is? Create beauty with these five steps.
An easy way to declutter your closet is to remove all dry cleaning plastic bags. Next get rid of the mismatched hangers. Settle on one hanger style that suits you and will look good in your closet. (I personally like the felt hangers you can get at Costco or Sam’s club) The purpose of your closet is to hold your clothes so anything that does not relate to getting dressed needs to find a different home. Your closet is not a place to store skis, old clothes, or other people’s belongings: out with the excess baggage!
Let’s start with color. Over the years closet walls get banged up a bit and can look dingy and dirty. Give it a lift by taking everything out of it and repainting. You can go with a standard white or take a favorite color of yours and use a light hue to enhance the walls. Try a light yellow, a faint lilac, or a soft blue. After the paint has dried observe the lighting. Is it too dim in that far left corner? Get proper lights (I recommend florescent lighting) so that every item in your closet gets an equal spotlight.
Have you ever walked into a beautiful uncluttered boutique? Where everything looks interesting and inviting-and you want to try it all on! Make walking into your closet similar to walking into a boutique. Keep everything as displayed as possible. Sweaters, jeans and t-shirts can be folded neatly on open shelves. You’ll wear more of your accessories when you can see them. Shop for a jewelry stand or add hooks to the wall to hold necklaces. Display your handbags on cute little hooks along a wall high enough to be out of the way but easy enough to swap out with ease. Scarf and belt racks help you see what you have. When you walk into your closest and see all possibilities, getting dressed is easier and fun.
Depending on the size of your closet you may have some room left to decorate the walls with inspirational photos or quotes. Getting small frames and filling them with looks you like or sayings that make you feel good are a great way to add personal touches to your closet. A full-length mirror may be a great place to write (with a washable pen) a weekly goal or reminder to wear a clothing item or accessory that you love so much.
Are you ready for one last step? A pleasant way to enjoy the space you get dressed in is to add a wonderful scent that you enjoy. Lavender satchels will help keep your closet and drawers smelling fresh, not stale. Leaving a gardenia floating in a pretty clear bowl on your dresser will absolutely welcome you to the ritual of getting dressed.

You can clutch the past so tightly to your chest that it leaves your arms too full to embrace the present. ~Jan Glidewell
