Color Coding Your Closet
Color coordination is both functional and beautiful. The secret to a functional closet is creating a space that makes it easy to put your hands on anything instantly. Making getting dress quick-er ( because it’s not always going to be quick ), eas-ier ( because it’s not always going be easy ), and not a lot of brain power.
It’s easy to remember a grey sweater that would go great with a pair of navy wide-legged pants right? Well If you know that all of the grey clothes are in this part of my closet you can put your hands on it a lot faster. Making it easier to get dressed.
Color coordinating also saves me money. Periodically I can’t find my go-to black wear-with-everything cardigan and I’ll have to buy another one. Usually, when I can’t find it, that means it’s wedged in between a maxi dress and a hoodie. Keeping everything color coordinated reduces the chances of that happening.
Laundry is not my favorite thing to do. This includes folding, handing and organizing but it’s SO worth it. Spending a few hours and color-code and organize your closet will completely change how you operate! I promise you it’ll make getting dressed in the morning more fun, your closet more beautiful, and your routine more efficient.
Here’ are 4 tips I’ve discovered that aid in ultimate closet efficiency:
- Group “types” of clothing together first. (ie. dresses, blouses, jackets, etc.)
- Within each group of clothing type, create color blocks.
- Use the rainbow (ROY G BIV) to color coordinate: White, tan, pink, red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo, violet, brown, grey, black.
- If you have a patterned item with more than one color, group it with the base color or the primary color it’s apart of the most.
