Updated on August 22, 2016

Do you find yourself spending every morning rummaging through your wardrobe trying to figure pit what to wear and where everything is? If so, learn how to organize your wardrobe and make the most of your clothes. This information is provided based on infographic by Apartment Geeks.

  • trousers
  • skirts
  • shirts
  • suits
  • coats
  • jackets


  • knitwear
  • T-shirts
  • loungewear
  • denim


Use a suitcase to store out of season garments, or use boxes and keep them on the top shelf.

TIP: Save on space by placing smaller handbags inside larger ones.


Maximize your wardrobe real estate and use a door rack to hang your belts, scarves and ties.


Clear shoeboxes will protect your shoes whilst letting you see them at a glance. Otherwise, invest in a shoe rack and keep it at the base of your wardrobe.

TIP: You can fit more pairs in by alternating the way the are facing.


Customizable wire drawers are perfect for keeping fiddly things such as socks at bay. Drawer dividers will help keep things even neater. Keep hosiery and socks manageable by folding them together.
