Easy Wardrobe Organisation Tips!

Is your wardrobe a complete mess and you’re looking for easy ways to get organised? Well, you’re in the right place! We’re here with our easy wardrobe organisation tips, so all you need to do is set an afternoon aside for this job, put on your favourite playlist, get a nice drink and some snacks and the organisation will fly by! If you’re not a big fan of jobs like this, try to make it fun in your own way, and remember how much better you’ll feel as a result when it’s all sorted. So, let’s get into it and help you to get organised! 

Clear Everything Out

The first step is an absolute must, and that is to clear everything out of your wardrobe and drawers. Take everything out and put it on your bed, then give your wardrobe a good clean. It’s so much easier to know what you’re working with when you have an empty space, and you’ll be less tempted to give up halfway through if everything is kept in your wardrobe. 


Once you’ve cleaned everything out, it’s time to start sorting. If you haven’t worn anything in the last year, it doesn’t fit you well anymore or it doesn’t make you feel comfortable, add that to a pile to get rid of. Then, create a keep pile. With the pile you’re going to get rid of, sort that into two more piles of things you’re going to sell on sites like Depop or Vinted, then another one for items you’re going to donate. If you can sell items that’s great as you can invest that money in pieces you really love, or you can help a charity by donating. Either of these options are great, just make sure you don’t throw anything in the bin! 


You can sort through your sell/donate pile another day as that’s quite a big job in itself, then instead, focus on your keep pile. 

Store Out Of Season Clothes In The Attic

A great way to make your wardrobe look and feel clearer is to store anything out of season in your attic. You don’t need all your big thick jumpers in the summer, nor your small summer dresses and bikini sets in the winter, so by storing them separately when you don’t need them you’ll have so much more room to work with. You can get vacuum seal bags, so you simply fold your clothes up and suck the air out, to keep the space it takes up to a minimum. Then, when the warmer or cooler weather comes around again, simply get them out and enjoy!

Assess Your Storage 

Now you know how many clothes and accessories you have to go in your wardrobe, it’s time to assess your storage. You might have enough space for everything, but if you don’t think about the storage solutions, it can look very cluttered. So, if it currently does look cluttered, you should focus on looking for ways to counteract that. Here are just a few bits of inspiration for you! 


  • Drawer dividers are a great way to separate smaller items, to make sure everything is well organised and also to help you rotate everything and not forget what you have. 
  • Another good option is storage racks or drawers in the bottom of your wardrobe, so you’re not taking up any floor space with additional storage but you can really make the most of the height within your current storage options. 
  • If you have a very tall wardrobe with space at the top, consider adding a shelf, again making the most of the height you already have to work with. You could get wicker baskets to store your shoes or use it for folded items like knitwear or denim. 
  • You can also get multiple hangers all on one hook, which is great for things like t-shirts, scarves, shirts or jumpers, as well as thinner trousers. It takes away the bulk of having everything next to each other and again, it’s a great way to keep everything on display so you don’t forget about anything! 


Add Cupboards Towards The Tops Of The Walls

If you have a small space to work with and you don’t want to sacrifice any floor space, a great option is to add cupboards towards the top of the walls. You’ll need to get these fitted if you’re not confident with DIY, but if you’re looking for a bit of a bigger project, this is perfect, and it can also elevate the design presence of your bedroom, so it’s a win-win! You can add as many or as little as you want and it can transform your storage. This can work with your clothes and accessories, or you could use them for other things, like toiletries and makeup or to keep trinkets in, like your favourite London souvenirs or photo albums. 

How To Organise

Now you’ve got your storage sorted, it’s time to decide how you’re going to organise everything! You have so many options, but we’re going to introduce just a few, which you can choose depending on the kind of space you’re working with. The majority of people organise their clothes by type, so you’d have all of your shirts hanging together, then all of your t-shirts, followed by dresses, skirts, trousers, and so on. Then you’d keep your foldable items together too, like denim first, then knitwear. This is an easy way to pair items together, especially if you have a staple wardrobe where it’s easy to mix and match everything. 


Other people like to organise by colour which can work in smaller storage spaces, so starting with all of your white and lighter items on the left, then working through the colour of the rainbow before moving into darker shades and finally all of your black clothes. Some people find this really satisfying because it will look great, but it can make finding items for a specific occasion slightly more tricky! 


Another option is to organise by occasion, so have all of your work clothes together, your loungewear in one drawer, your more casual clothes together and then a section for your dressier going out clothes, like your bodycon dresses or your wedding guest dresses. This can be great for finding outfits quickly when you’re in a rush so it is a perfect fit for some people. There are so many options to choose from, so just have a think about what would work for your lifestyle from the ideas above and then you can go from there! Plus, the organisation you pick won’t be stuck there forever, so you can always mix it up.
