4 Tips to Transitioning your closet for fall

September is here, and while Dallas is holding strong with temperatures over 100F (insert crying emoji face), it's time to start thinking about transitioning your closet for fall.

transition your closet to fall

Whether you seasonally swap your closet because of space issues or you want to adjust what is in prime locations in your closet, now is the time to start this process.

4 Easy Tips to Transitioning your closet for fall:

1: Assess Your Current Wardrobe

As you are about to put away and move your summer wardrobe, now is the time to do a quick inventory of what you have, what you have not worn and what needs to go. This blog post shares 4 tips to successfully purge your closet and is a great, straightforward method to reassess your inventory. If you can't decide, keep it. Putting away items for the winter and looking at them again in the spring will make it easier to purge when you've had some time apart :)

2: The SWAP: Store Summer Pieces & Bringing out the fall/winter

Having bins that are labeled, with labels that are easy to change out from summer shorts to winter knits/etc., will make the process quicker and less stressful. Using the appropriate storage techniques such as for cashmere or bathing suits, keeps them safely container and also easier to pull out when the next season rolls around.

3: Incorporating Fall Colors and Trends

I find the trends this season to be quite underwhelming. I'm spotting things from my youth that I was glad to leave in the past. Specifically cargo and wide-leg denim. I love to use instagram for fashion inspiration & advice.

Lately I am loving these fashion accounts on insta:

4: Organizing Your Closet

Sometimes the seasonal swap doesn't directly translate. You might remove items that were in a hanging space but really need more shelves for folded items.

If you need to get crafty for hanging sweaters that need to be folded, this was a helpful video on insta and so was this video.

If you need to create temporary shelving for folded I recommend: this, this, this & this.

If seasonal swapping your closet feels overwhelming and you want to outsource, looking up a local professional organizer is a great way to get the job done right and minimal stress.

If you have any recommendations for how you transition your closet through the seasons I would love to hear in the comments.
