1. Get organised!

  • Before you start to store winter clothes for your summer transition, it is crucial to exercise good wardrobe organisation and clear out the bits you no longer need or wear. There are several steps to follow in order to do this efficiently.
    • Keep or toss: In order to achieve the ultimate summer clear out, it’s important to go through your wardrobe, both your summer and winter bits, and decide whether to keep or toss to prevent unnecessary clutter and build up in your wardrobe. Be ruthless; did you wear that jumper this winter? If not, give it to somebody who will! You can find out more about how to do this in our spring cleaning tips blog.
    • After you’ve decided what’s staying or going, organise your things and categorise them into seasons. pick what clothes you’ll be needing for summer and get ready to store your hats and scarves away ready for winter.

2. Before you store winter clothes, wash, wash, wash!

  • Now for the cleaning! Once you have organised what is going where it’s a good idea to give everything a nice clean. In the future, you will be very happy to come back to fresh clean clothes when winter comes around and will reduce the summer blues when the wardrobe switcheroo comes back around.

3. Time to store winter clothes:

  • Good, practical, clever storage solutions are key for maintaining the ultimate wardrobe so investing in sturdy and long-lasting storage is vital.
  • Make sure your storage is sturdy and sealed to prevent any unwanted visitors from getting in once you store your winter clothes, and a top tip is to pop some air freshener in with your clothes for that extra bit of freshness.
  • This can be done so many ways regardless of your space and budget:
    • Storage containers:
      • If you’re wanting to get extra organised, then invest in boxes or material packing cubes to put your clothes in to prevent things getting muddled and lost.
    • Hidden storage:
      • This is ideal for putting away your winter clothes that you won’t need for the upcoming months.
      • Under the bed storage could be a great method of doing this as it’s hidden out of the way and takes up no extra space so perfect for those working with a smaller space.
      • You can find sofas or chairs that contain hidden storage which again means you’re maximising your space without causing extra clutter. See our piece on space saving ideas for more inspiration.

    • Exposed storage:
      • Storage doesn’t always need to be hidden. You may want to show off your favourite summer dress or your fanciest pair of sandals. If that’s the case, you can invest in pieces to put these items on display and make them a part of your room’s décor.
      • Exposed clothing racks are a good example of this; as are artsy mannequins or shoe racks.
