A new season is fast approaching, so now might be a good time to think about organizing your closet. But before you fold or toss away your summer gear, consider these eight smart and helpful tips from the fashion experts at Net-a-Porter, Vault Couture, and S*uce.

1

De-clutter Regularly

“Sort through your wardrobe every season and prepare to be totally honest with yourself. This is a great opportunity to try everything on and find different ways of wearing a piece.” Lupe Puerta, Global Head of Personal Shopping and Client Relations, Net-a-Porter

2

Do an Honest Assessment

“Anything more than six months old that still has tags on it was a mistake. It doesn’t excite you and doesn’t work with your other pieces. Assess what doesn’t work and let it go.” Sarah Hogan, Head of Styling, Vault Couture

3

Consider Your Feelings

“Every single thing you own should make you feel great, from your cashmere sweaters and jeans to your eveningwear. If you hold up the garment and can see any body part imprinted in it, such as elbows or knees, throw it out.” Sarah Hogan, Head of Styling, Vault Couture

Think Categorically

“The best way to discover what your wardrobe is missing is to organize it by category. It’s also a great way to see which items you buy too many of.” Lupe Puerta, Global Head of Personal Shopping and Client Relations, Net-a-Porter

5

Maximize Visibility

“Another tip for clothes is to use clear-vinyl garment bags; they are fantastic for protecting clothing while allowing you to see what’s inside.” Lupe Puerta, Global Head of Personal Shopping and Client Relations, Net-a-Porter

6

Box Things Up

“Use storage boxes for undergarments and swimwear. I love the Uashmama washable paper bags from The Design Shop.” Miri Khayat, Stylist, S*uce

7

Use Space Smartly

“Get space-saving, multiple-layered hangers so you can hang skirts in a cascading manner. If using drawers, roll jeans and pants, and store shoes in opposite directions to maximize space.” Miri Khayat, Stylist, S*uce

Invest in Hangers

“Always invest in wooden hangers to ensure your garments retain their original shape. I recommend folding cashmere, and placing paper or tissue underneath hanger clips to protect skirts and pants from being marked, particularly leather pieces.” Lupe Puerta, Global Head of Personal Shopping and Client Relations, Net-a-Porter
