Is your closet a sea of colors and fabrics, out of date styles and poorly fitting clothing?  Maybe it’s time for some pre-spring cleaning!  The best strategy for getting a killer wardrobe is to get more impact with fewer pieces. And to ORGANIZE!  While you might not have the space to create a closet that looks as spectacular as the one above, you can work with what you have! Consider these simple tips:

1.  Start weeding out your closet. The first step is to clean out your closet.  Every item should fit you, be comfortable and make you feel confident.  If it doesn’t meet all three criteria- toss it, donate it or sell it.  Know your body type, just because something is trendy, doesn’t mean it looks good on you.  Your only goal should be to flatter your figure.  Pack two bags.  One for Goodwill and one for the maybes.  Give away the first and revisit the second in a few months.  It makes the break up easier.

2.  Get matching hangers and color code your closet. You’d be surprised at how life changing a neat and orderly closet can be.  Ok, well maybe not life changing but it will put you in a pleasant mood every time you look for something to wear and make getting dressed easier.

3.  Avoid being featured on Hoarders. Live the one in, one out manta.  If you buy something new, get rid of something old.

4.  Shop in Your Closet. Wear basics like white button down shirts and jeans in different ways to avoid buying new items each season. The key to looking updated is to learn to accessorize. Hang your jewelry, belts, hats and scarves on an empty space on the wall.  If all of your accessories are within viewing distance, you’ll be inspired to mix and match daily and with abandon.

5.  Always Look Good. Only buy, own and wear things that make you feel fabulous – even if you are just running to Starbucks.  You never know when you are going to run into an ex lover or an old enemy.
