For some, choosing an outfit is a much needed creative outlet; for others, it’s a chore. Regardless of your relationship with clothes, it never hurts to employ some life hacks to make your routine more efficient. After all, it’s far more important to spend precious morning time catching up and eating breakfast with your family than figuring out what to wear. And let’s face it — when we’re in a rush to get dressed, we try on dozens of outfits, and the ones we don’t choose wind up on the floor.
In partnership with The Quaker Oats Company, today we are sharing some outfit organization tips that we promise will help you speed up your morning dress routine, give you 15 extra minutes to enjoy a meal with your loved ones and then #OffYouGo. Take a look and give them a try!
1. Plan all of the week’s outfits on Sunday night. That includes accessories, purses, shoes and even your bra and undies. Think about your plans and meetings for the week so that you can outfit yourself accordingly. You don’t want to wear your mom’s group outfit to your board meeting, amirite?
What’s more, you can use a chain to group multiple hangers. With this hack you’re not only saving time, but you’re also saving hard-to-come-by closet space.
2. Hang your outfits in your closet in the order you plan to wear them. That way you won’t have to think about which outfit you organized for which day. This will save you at least a few minutes!
3. Hang your outfit in the bathroom the night before you wear it. Sometimes we crawl into the bathroom in the morning and don’t wake up until after our shower. This way, you’ll be ready to go before that crucial splash of water.
As a bonus, the steam from your shower will smooth out wrinkles!
4. Organize your closet in rainbow order. Not only will it look beautiful, but it will also help you put outfits together faster.
5. Opt for monochromatic tones. That way you’ll be able to mix and match easily.
6. Hang tops, bottoms and dresses separately. It’s much easier to find the piece you need when you have them separated and organized.
