With the change in season comes the change in weather, wardrobe, fashions and accessories. This means you need to start transitioning your closet now, while you still have time to get rid of items you don’t want and start making space for new fall pieces. To help you prepare your closet, we have some simple steps to help you switch from hot summer to cool fall.
Evaluate your summer clothes.
Go through your closet and look at all of your summer clothes. When doing this, be sure to create three piles: one with items to save for next summer, one with things to donate and one with pieces to sell. If something is out of date and you haven’t worn it in a while, it’s probably time to get rid of it.
Plan your fall wardrobe.
Have a certain look you absolutely love for fall? Whether you love knit sweaters, tall boots or infinity scarves, start looking at magazines, your favorite influencers’ Instagram feeds and Pinterest boards to find out what kind of fall clothes you’d like to include in your closet. After you have an idea of what clothes you’ll have, you can plan to make space for them.

Corral the coats.
With the cooler weather approaching, you may have to drag out your coats from storage. If possible, it’s smart to keep your coats and cold-weather items in a separate closet. An entryway closet or mudroom hanging rack is a logical place to keep these, as they’ll be out of the way and easily accessible when you’re leaving home.

Organize with closet upgrades.
Sweaters, jeans, scarves and fall wardrobe items are often heavier and need more storage space than your summer clothes. Now more than ever is the time to think about using a closet system that works for you, not against you. With double hang space, shoe racks, drawers and shelves for folded items, your new outfits will have space to live in your closet.
