Spring is a great time to lighten up and refresh your closet. Pull out the bulky coats, sweaters, scarves, and other seasonal items, and relocate them. You can store them in garment bags in the back of your closet, or box them up in breathable cotton storage boxes. Let those spring and summer clothes have their moment in your prime real estate areas!
In setting up your closet, take care to store items by frequency of use. Set up everyday essentials in prime real estate areas for visibility and easy access, and formal, seasonal, and occasional items in the back of the closet, or in bins on a high shelf.
Once you're all set up, it's nice to add some personal touches and decor to complete the transformation. You might try accessorizing with an accent rug, pretty lighting, framed pictures, or a style inspiration board. Remember: You start and end each day in your closet. It's worth it to invest a little added effort to ensure it feels inviting and lovely.
Once you've thoughtfully edited and set up your closet for spring, it will be easy to see if there are any wardrobe gaps you'd like to fill in. Jot down the items you'd like to invest in to round out your wardrobe, and make sure to only shop with a budget and a list.
