It sounds obvious, but it makes the biggest difference. Though some of your summer and spring clothes can be worn in the winter with heavy and bulky coats, some of them won’t be functional for you. Bodysuits, swimwear, crop tops, crochets, eyelet dresses, lightweight blouses, and music festival outfits won’t be helpful for you these colder months. Whether you can store them in a separate place entirely, or simply move them to the back or side of your closet, getting them out of sight and mind as much as possible will help you concentrate on your winter wardrobe.

Arrange your winter clothes by type, color and length to maximize wardrobe flexibility.

Keep coats with coats, shirts with shirts, trousers with trousers, sweaters with sweaters, and so on. You might want to organize your closet by color and length of clothes to make it look organized. This is the perfect strategy for cold weather clothes to make your morning dressing easier and more stylish. You may use shelves to keep sweaters and shirts in view. Remember, you don’t wear what you don’t see. Also, storing items this way also helps avoid stretching.

Organize your cold-weather accessories.

This is the perfect strategy for cold weather accessories that are easy to lose such as gloves, scarves, and hats. Clear plastic bags, transparent organizers, or boxes let you see exactly what’s inside. Whatever you choose, just remember to stick to it and return your accessories after wearing them. You can easily lose your gloves and its partner if you have five different places for them.

Change up your hangers and closet organizers, or install hooks and racks.

Since dressing for cold sometimes requires a different style, you might need more hangers to accommodate heavier pants and skirts, or fewer hangers if sweaters are replacing your crop tops and summer’s button-down shirts. Also, you don’t want your belts, costume jewelry, or scarves all bunched up, so keep them neatly organized on hooks. Think of using racks for hats or purses as the idea is to keep everything visible and handy to make accessorizing easy.

Be careful with your boots.

As with winter clothes, winter boots are heavier, and more likely to come into the house wet and dirty. Winter shoes, with the exceptions of dressy or indoor-only ones, should probably not be stored in or near a closet full of clothes. By heeding our simple tricks, you’ll have an organized winter wardrobe that will keep you warm and stylish.
