by Wasifa Ahmad Hasan

Transitioning into a new season always brings some changes to your wardrobe. The same applies to when the summer ends and autumn enters our closet. Our bikinis, cover-ups, and crop tops are left for the next summer and it is time to bring out our trench coats, long-sleeved dresses, knits, and other cozier items. However, this may sound simple, but organizing your wardrobe for autumn is not an easy task. 

Moreover, if you have noticed that you are delaying to organize your closet, just read the next few tips and you will easily get a beautiful and arranged wardrobe for autumn. 

How to Organize Your Wardrobe:

You need a clear-out

This means going through every single item in your wardrobe. Although it may sound boring at first, you can turn on some motivational music and have fun while going through all your clothing items. Additionally, the odds are high that you will stumble upon a few pieces that you have forgotten about. So, take all your swimwear, linen trousers, colorful playsuits, and all the other clothes that are suitable only for the warm weather and put in on a big pile on your bed.

The next step is to make a selection. Decide what clothes are you going to keep (because you know that you will wear them again), what can go to charity or you can sell (because it is still in good condition, but you will most certainly not wear it again) and what is completely unusable, old and ready to go into garbage.

Wash and store everything

You may have forgotten to wash a couple of tops that you have worn, or simply to make sure that everything is clean before you put your summer clothes into storage, wash them once again. This is also important for those items that you are about to sell or give to charity, as you want them to be fresh and clean for the next person who is going to wear them.

Edit your autumn clothes

Now that your closet is nice and cleared out, it is time to take on your autumn clothes and go through them before you put them in your wardrobe. What kind of autumn pieces do you have and what do you need to shop for? For example, you may realize that you have enough knit sweaters, but that you could buy one or two gorgeous dresses, such as a cute frill dress, that you can pair with over-the-knee boots and a biker jacket.

Also, you can do a similar thing to what you have done with your summer clothes and decide if there are some items that you will not wear again and that can go to the bin. For instance, you may have a few pairs of jeans that are worn out and a leather jacket that is no longer in accordance with your style. So, put the jeans into the bin and donate or sell that jacket online.  That way, you will have more room in your closet, you will earn money to buy new autumn pieces and you will make another person happy that they can wear that amazing, pre-loved jacket (or another fashion item).
