Closets are a place where you can show off your collections, whether it’s clothes, shoes, or accessories. The goal really is for your closet to look like your own mini store. Almost every girl dreams to have huge closet similar to Carrie Bradshaw’s closet in the Sex and the City movie. We can all agree that the closet Mr. Big built for Carrie was to die for. Now, not all of us have that luxury, but you can certainly create an amazing space with some simple updates. Here are some tips that will get your closet looking chic.
It’s a good idea for your closet to have a natural palette in order for the clothes and accessories to truly stand out and so you can see everything. It’s a good idea to keep the colors light so that you don’t take away the focus from the clothes and accessories. It is a closet after all so you want your clothes, shoes, and accessories to be the center of attention. White is great because it’s going to create a sophisticated and classic feel.
To make your closet looks even more amazing put like colors together. It’s a good idea to start from light to dark. In dong this, having a color spectrum will keep your closet looking clean and chic. It also makes the closet look a lot more appealing and it really brings everything together.
Tip: have all of your whites and cream colors together, then go to browns, navy, and black. On the other side of your closet have all your brighter clothes and again organize it from the lightest to the darkest colors.
A great thing to have in your closet is a spot where you can put the clothes you want to wear for the next day, that way you have everything you need in one spot. Add hooks in your closet and hang up your planned outfits for the week. This also comes in handy when you are planning a trip; it’s a great way to stay organized. The extra space to hang your clothes is going to come in handy when you are putting your looks together because it’s going to save you a lot of time when you are getting ready.
Adding seating in your closet is a must. Whether it’s a chair or ottoman, it makes things more practical, especially when you are trying to put you shoes on. Now, if you don’t have a walk-in closet you can still add seating right by your closet or add a bench at the end of the bed. It also makes a great to place your clothes and accessories on when changing so that they are not lying around the room.
Showcase you favorite pieces as art. It’s going to make your closet space more fun, unique, and interesting. Shoes for example are a great item to showcase. Maybe it’s something you don’t wear too often, but it’s something that is eye-catching and interesting. It should be an item that really stands out. After all, fashion is art.
If the space allows it, hang up some pictures that inspire you in a fashion sense. You can showcase your favorite designer, vintage fashion pictures, or anything that represents who you are and what your style is all about.
