With the cold season finally upon us, everyone is getting their cars, houses and gardens ready to face the cold weather of Adelaide. But how do you make your wardrobes winter-ready?
Fall is the best time to give your wardrobes a good winter clean-out and get them ready for the season ahead in style. This will give you some time to make any necessary clothes repairs. Additionally, you will need to filter your clothes and plan the needed wardrobe storage.
The first step to getting your winter clean out started is to go through your wardrobes and review every piece of your clothes, including summer and winter outfits. Empty out your wardrobes and gather up everything you own so that you could get an overall picture. It will help you decide what needs to be kept, donated or thrown away.
Are there any items you have not worn since last year? These should be donated to charity. Be ruthless and do not be afraid to let go of your old clothes. It will free up some space in your wardrobes for any new items. With the new season approaching, you will probably add a couple of new pieces to your wardrobe.
Once you have finished filtering your clothes, you should start with the winter edit. Any summer clothing you will not be wearing during the upcoming months, need to be moved to the back or side of your wardrobes. This way, you will have more room for those bulky winter clothes, such as coats and pullovers.
If you do not want to spend your mornings searching for a shirt that is hidden somewhere in your wardrobe, then you should create an order for your clothes. The easiest and most appealing way to organize wardrobes, is by categorising all items by colour.
Winter wardrobes are usually filled more with sweaters and knitwear. These should not be hung; they will stretch and lose their shape. Instead, fold them neatly and put them on shelves.
One of the biggest challenges of winter wardrobes is finding enough shelves to fit all of your bulky sweaters and pullovers. Therefore, you should consider adding some moveable shelves in your wardrobes in the winter to find a home for all of the folded items.
