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.

Happy Coordinating!

    I honestly thought I was the only one that did this!!!!! Colour co-ordinating my wardrobe also makes it easier to visualise when I’m away from home so that I know what I have/don’t have which comes in useful when I’m travelling between home and uni. It looks even more beautiful now that I have an open rack rather than a full wardrobe!
    I’m just so excited someone else does it too lol!
    I hadn’t even thought about the financial benefits of this before- thanks for sharing!

    I would love to try color coordinating! I don’t have a very large closet though, and it makes things really hard as far as organizing everything in general.

    Wow. I have been thinking about doing this for some time now. I never get the opportunity to do it. I think this might be a weekend project for me. Not to mention it might add some destressing to my life. Thank you for this informative post.

    I thought I was doing too much when I color coded my closet, but since I moved and I just chucked everything into my closet, I’m feeling it. It was honestly so much smoother and I took it for granted until I didn’t do it anymore. It’s so worth the time and effort!
