8 Steps to Cleaning your Closet like a Stylist

What if you had a private stylist to come to your house and review your closet to help prepare for the holiday seas0n?  Would your closet measure up? Even if you don’t have a private stylist (like most celebrities do) don’t worry, we’ve got the 8 steps you need to prepare for the holidays.  For doubters out there, we have cleaned a number of celebrity closets over the years and the rich and famous are no different from you or me:  they have things they can’t part with, things they can’t fit into and even those things they bought on a whim, that literally shouldn’t leave the house. Woe to the celebrity who leaves their house without a closet review!

  So, Take heart and use our steps to clean and organize your closet like a pro!

  • Step 1- Start by Sorting out clothes you know will not fit and that may not even like anymore. Set those aside.  These things will go to charity. 
  • Step 2-Separate the Seasons in your closet. Put the Current Seasonal clothes together in the front of the closet with past seasons in the back.  
  • Step 3-Review the Current seasonal pieces to see if they are still on trend: Are they classics, Trendsetters, or just plain boring? 
  • Step 4-Separate all the skirts, blouses, jackets, and other pices into groups in your closet so you can easily mix and match the separates. 
  • Step 4-Review your Lingerie, Hose or Foundations: Are you prepared for a daily work-out, hot date, workday outfit or holiday event?
  • Step 5-Shoe Review: Dump out worn, torn and otherwise past due shoes that don’t update or improve your seasonal pieces.
  • Step 7-Color Trends: Separate your current seasonal pieces into color groups: any trending colors missing? Some to remove? Update or Give Away?
  • Step 8-Accessories Review: Bags, belts, scarves, jewelry and more! What works, what should go, and what are the classics to keep forever. 

Now that your closet is cleaned out, and there is a huge pile on your floor, bag it up and choose a charity for your donations ! If you can give your used wardrobe away to help others, its perfect for the season of giving and also your taxes for 2016! 

Wardrobe stylists like closets that are well organized,  filled with both key pieces and classics, transitional items and trends.  

Bon Chance!
