5 Summer Wardrobe Hacks


Here are 5 handy wardrobe hacks for summer you MUST know...

Organise Your Summer Clothing Like A Pro!

Don't you hate those morning routines when you have to hunt for your outfit - sometimes making you late? Get your cupboard organised so, at a glance, you can grab what's needed for that day's outfit:

  • Arrange your summer hanging items in colours in the following category types in this order - tops/shirts, skirts, trousers, jackets, dresses, suits. Behind this arrange your other season's clothing in the same colour-coded type and order. This way when the season changes, you can simply switch the clothing around.
  • Use niftily designed drawer organisers for the rolled, smaller items like T-shirts, socks, ties, underwear, jewellery, and belts.

An organised wardrobe will save you time and space…. and your morning mood.

Which Clothing for which Shelves?

Still keeping your items in summer and colour order foremost, shelves are ideal for:

  • Stacks of folded denim jeans and chunky knitwear.
  • Jewellery and accessories arrayed in pretty boxes or hung on a DIY pegboard installed at the back of the shelf.
  • Matching wicker baskets used for other or lesser-used items on top shelves.
  • Handbags standing neatly on bottom or lower shelves.

Organised and orderly shelves are always a pleasing and welcoming sight when opening your wardrobe.

Best Ways to Protect and Organise Shoes

Don't leave your shoes kicking around any old how! Protect and preserve them, especially if expensive and leather, by storing these - by season, by type by colour on/in:

  • Shoe Racks - open, metal racks which are angled downwards usually at the bottom of the cupboard.
  • Shoe Shelves - downward sloped shelves within your cupboard with a protective edge to prevent the shoes from sliding off.
  • Boot Shelf - usually at the bottom of the cupboard and sized to allow boots to stand upright.
  • Plastic store-bought shoe boxes stacked at the bottom of your wardrobe.
  • Cardboard shoe boxes with attached photos depicting the shoe inside also stacked at the bottom of your wardrobe.

Easy DIY Wardrobe Accessories

Always rummaging for accessories that you can never seem to find? Here are some great easy to install, DIY storage suggestions:

  • Install DIY shelves on an open wall space to hold jewellery boxes, hats or handbags.
  • Install a pegboard on an empty wall space for hanging jewellery and other accessories.
  • Install hooks on the back of your wardrobe door for hanging ties, belts, scarves etc. or tie these onto a hanger.
  • Attach hanging shoe organisers to the inside of your wardrobe doors for gloves, scarves, beanies and other small miscellaneous items.

These wardrobe DIY accessories are not only affordable and easy to use but are perfect for organising your built-in cupboard and saving space.

Is Classic your Style?

What is classic style? If you prefer timeless looks, simple cuts in clothing, good tailoring, smart quality fabrics, neutral colours rather than following the fashion trends, then classic is your style.

As the classic woman believes in quality, no expense is spared in ensuring her purchases are long-lasting and timeless. To this end, her wardrobe will be carefully, neatly and well organised to best protect and preserve her valuable clothing, shoes and handbags.

In her bedroom cupboard you will find garments, usually in solid colours rather than prints and often in black or navy, like simple, well-fitted dresses, smart tailored suits - trousers or skirts, leather jackets, shoes and handbags. Her outfits are strikingly simple, well-coordinated and uncluttered with pared-down jewellery no matter what season it is!

We all recognise a classic stylish woman. She makes a statement when she walks!
