When I was 45, I suddenly developed and avid interest in style and have learned a lot about it since then. Here is where I share some of the things I've learned.
I keep all of my clothes in my closet, except for panties, bras and leggings. I hang everything on hangers that I got on amazon.com that look like this:
They have a little hook on them for hanging more than one hanger together.
Once every 2 or 3 weeks. I go through my closet and make outfits to wear for the next 2 or 3 weeks. I hang them by outfit, like this:
Then, each night before bed, I pick an outfit and hang it on the dresser like this, and grab it in the morning on my way to the shower.
Here are a couple others:
I only have a small closet, but I do seem to have a lot of clothes. You can see how my clothes all have a soft, washed out look. That is because I have a summer seasonal pallette and these are the colors that look best on me.
I hang my shoes on the door, and have some on the floor.
I hang my necklaces on nails on the doorway of my closet.
I hang my socks in a bag, on the closet door, under the shoes.
I keep my sweaters on the shelf in my closet,, and the shoes that I no longer can wear due to foot pain, but think I may need some day.... Ha! Ha! My daughter helps herself to them.
So, everything is in my little closet and everything (but those shoes up high) gets used a lot.
I store my earrings and pendants in a little drawer in the side table by my bed. I put them in egg crates and store them by color.
