The transition of seasons encourages some closet organization and practical wardrobe assessment. As a supplement to last week’s post with Thuyvi Vo, we tackle how exactly does one create a wardrobe that works as a complete collection and how to organize your closet to ease the everyday choice of outfits. A few other fashion bloggers Kim Thomas, Tara Skelley, and Ariane Patrice also chime in on their closest essentials and organizing tips.

Closet/Wardrobe Essentials
Our compiled list of wardrobe essentials touches on what everyone should have this season but mainly items that will last through many seasons.

• A coat, tailored and neutral
• A blazer, tailored
• Dress shirt, white or chambray
• A quality pair of denim jeans
• Boyfriend t-shirt, V-neck
• Pair of boots
• Pair of sneakers
• Pair of loafers
• Scarf, quality material
• Travel bags. Shown above are a coordinating set by Madewell.

A Styled Closet
A styled closet can mean less time getting ready since everything coordinates and is easy to find. Here are a few things you can do to organize and make your closet look like your favorite retail store with a livable quality.

• Matching hangers, such as all wooden hangers.
• Organize by color.
• Separate by season if your closet is big enough to hold all seasons. If not, pack away what you don’t need.
• Purge anything you don’t wear or love. Only keep what you love.
• Organize by type and order of layer. For example, things you put on first are on one side then work your way across to outer layers like sweaters and coats.
• A small stool will help as you as you get shoes on. It’s also a great step stool or display for your hat.
• A small plush rug like a sheepskin rug amps up the style while keeping your feet comfortable.


Please let us know if you have any other suggestions for a stylish closet. Have a fantastic weekend.
