Easy Ways to Give Your Closet a Makeover

Have you ever opened your closet only to be attacked by hangers, clothes, and accessories that fly out? If you’ve ever been a victim of a hazardous closet, its time to think about ways to organize your fashion picks.

Check out these tips to make your closet seem less like the never-ending Narnia wardrobe and more like a fashionista’s heaven!

1. Does It Still Have A Price Tag?
If there are items that you forgot you owned, or that you can’t even recall buying, its time to get rid of them—after all, they are taking up your precious space. Try donating them or seeing if any of your girlfriends want in on the goods.

2. Colour and Size
Once you’ve sorted through your clothes, try to organize them by colour and category using different hangers. Separate different parts of your closet by attaching a hair clip to the clothing rod when you need a break in space. And don’t forget a laundry hamper!
