{Fashion Monday} How to get your closet ready for Spring

This might be considered too late for the planners but for some of us this is an ok time to start preparing the closet for spring. I always say that I am not Fashionista and that outfits I put together are what I love and usually wear for work or a day out (but not at home, you would be shocked if your saw me at home). My lovely readers keep reminding me that I have an eye for fashion and that not everyone can put together the outfits I put together and I am thankful they think that. With that in mind I thought I share you how I am getting my closet ready for spring.

Spring

Getting your closet ready for spring shouldn’t be too hard since its warming up and you’re packing away your winter woolies and putting in some light material closets and open shoes. But what is one to do when you reside in UK where the weather changes more times than you change your toilet rolls? So below is how I get my closet ready for spring without breaking the bank.

1. Empty your closet – this is a huge undertaking for some but if you’re like me it is not as every month you switch things around in your closet. Emptying your closet gives you a chance to see what you already have in your closet and what staple items you need to add to your closet.

2. Remove all winter coats and jackets – I don’t have that many winter coats and jackets and I try to keep these outside my closet so if you’re like me this step you can skip. Of all your winter coats and jackets pick one coat that can go with everything and same with the jacket, let those in the closet the rest pack them away for next winter.

3. Sort your pile – looking at the pile on the floor or bed, choose light items of clothing like summer dresses, jeans, shorts and summer tops. The rest if they do not fall in the category above then pack them away for next winter.

 4. Keep, chuck or replace– if you’re anything like me you have some spring/summer clothes items that you wear constantly. If these are still in good condition then keep, if not chuck and replace. Ensure you have the basics that you can wear anywhere and with anything. These include white tees, black tees, blue shorts, ripped and faded jeans and string tops with light cardigans for the chilly nights or the cool air during the day.

5. Does it fit – this is also something to check with all the pieces or item that have made it to the spring/summer closet. Yes last summer those shorts and tees fit you like a glove, this year it might not be the case so check if they fit and if not chuck and replace.

This is how I got my closet ready for Spring/Summer, how do you ready yours?

    Great post! I recently cleared out my wardrobe and donated A LOT of clothes don’t fit me as they were in perfect condition. I also put away my winter coat but have had to fish it out again this week as it’s been so cold! I hope Spring hurries up, lol.xx

      How lovely of you to donate, I keep my winter coats near by

  2. April 22, 2016 / 1:17 am

    These are some absolutely awesome tips! I really need to get my game on ready for Spring! x

    • April 22, 2016 / 8:27 am

      Tell me about it and thanks Sarah

    I don’t organise my wardrobe by season, but this all makes sense. I’ve konmari’d mine so it’s much neater and streamlined anyway.

    • April 20, 2016 / 3:00 pm

      I never used to but now I do and makes things easier for me

    I am in serious need of a spring wardrobe makeover at the moment. I decluttered yesterday and tried on old clothes. Its definitely time for some shopping. x

    • April 20, 2016 / 1:11 pm

      Hahaha, I couldn’t agree more. I am in need of some shopping

  5. April 19, 2016 / 12:12 am

    I have a mixture of spring and winter in my wardrobe because the UK is super cold still. I can’t wait for the warmer days to set in!

    • April 19, 2016 / 8:30 am

      I try to keep some winter clothes close by for the weird days

    • April 19, 2016 / 8:30 am

      Thanks Oliver

  6. April 18, 2016 / 9:09 pm

    We haven’t had a lot of nice weather so there’s been no need to move out winter stuff yet x

    • April 19, 2016 / 8:26 am

      I managed to move most of mine away but keep my warm coats and jacket near by

  7. April 18, 2016 / 8:06 pm

    I’m starting to think of Spring finally and Summer even! It’s a good idea to do some spring preparation in the wardrobe. I really do need to do some clearing out myself. It always feels good to get organised and sort out clothes and get rid of things I don’t wear anymore.

    • April 19, 2016 / 8:22 am

      Exactly, I find it liberating when I clean my closet

  8. April 18, 2016 / 5:13 pm

    This is so my mission this weekend! I need to make the transition but the weather is confusing me…

    • April 19, 2016 / 8:17 am

      Tell me about it, you want to change to spring but winter seems more prevalent

  9. April 18, 2016 / 9:25 am

    I did buy myself some sandals, but admittedly I’m still wearing a lot of my winter stuff, especially the jumpers. Some days I feel the temperature drop and I’m able to wear my sandals, but there are still days when it feels like it’s too cold? Hopefully the temperature will stay low.

    • April 18, 2016 / 10:44 am

      I know what you mean, it’s all good and nice to have your closet ready but the weather is not corporate very much it can be hard

  10. April 17, 2016 / 3:08 pm

    These are really great tips! I really need to take the time to get my closet ready for the new seasons!

    • April 17, 2016 / 3:37 pm

      Thanks Cathy

    I need a spring wardrobe makeover. I feel that I lack in that department because our Spring weather is like summer so I wear mostly lighter clothing.

    • April 15, 2016 / 1:06 pm

      I think you’re lucky to have a spring which is more summer than spring here it’s more winter than Spring

  12. April 15, 2016 / 11:47 am

    These are great tips! I really need to switch my closet out and get everything ready for summer & Spring!!

    • April 15, 2016 / 11:55 am

      Thanks Jasmine

    I need to do spring cleaning! I still have all the winter clothes in my closet and hard to find my spring clothes in between them. Some of them are not my size anymore. After reading your tips, I feel like doing this right away.

    • April 15, 2016 / 11:55 am

      Aww, hope you make use of the tips and good luck with the decluttering

    Great post. I have been trying to Spring clean and get everything ready.

    • April 15, 2016 / 11:54 am

      Thanks and good luck

  15. April 14, 2016 / 5:58 am

    Thanks for sharing your tips. I need to do a closet cleanup. When my closet is tidy, it is so much easier getting ready in the morning.

    • April 15, 2016 / 11:53 am

      I know the feeling, that’s why I have an open closet which is easier to tidy and makes getting ready in the morning that much easier

  16. April 14, 2016 / 4:30 am

    I need to do this with my youngest sons clothes. I just bought him new things bc he is growing again. I only have a handful of clothes that I wear outside of the home.

    • April 15, 2016 / 11:52 am

      They tend to grow too fast lol

  17. April 14, 2016 / 4:25 am

    I hate transitioning from winter to spring…mainly because our weather doesnt really transition! One day its 65 and the next it’s 90. And that happens in February!

    • April 15, 2016 / 11:52 am

      Oh boy! I wish I could get 90 here lol

  18. April 14, 2016 / 4:15 am

    Bringing out the sun glasses is my favorite part! So ready for spring and sunshine. Thanks for the tips!

    • April 15, 2016 / 11:51 am

      Hahaha you and me both

  19. April 13, 2016 / 10:07 pm

    These are great tips, I never get my closet ready for spring but you inspired me to want to!

    • April 15, 2016 / 11:50 am

      Aww glad to hear that

  20. April 13, 2016 / 8:32 pm

    I’m ready to switch my closet out but the weather isn’t exactly on boar 100% as of yet. I’ve taken out one tote but I haven’t committed to the process.

    • April 15, 2016 / 11:50 am

      It’s the same here but I have kept my winter woolies where I can reach them everytime the winter ugly shows itself

  21. April 13, 2016 / 8:14 pm

    I really need to go through my closet and move some winter clothes to the guest bedroom closet. There are probably some things I could donate or throw out too.

    • April 15, 2016 / 11:49 am

      Good luck

    I really need to go through my closet. I am ready to switch out all my sweaters for summer and spring clothes!

    • April 15, 2016 / 11:48 am

      I just did mine and very happy about it

  23. April 13, 2016 / 2:53 pm

    I need to do this soon. Where I live it’s already starting to get warm and I cannot find any of my shorts. I hate trying on stuff to make sure that it still fits., but I know I need to do that too.

    • April 15, 2016 / 11:47 am

      I hope you get it done soon and you might surprise yourself what you might find still fits

    I am in the process of relocating so I have done exactly what you suggested. My new closets will be neat, clutter free and void of excess. I feel good already.

    • April 15, 2016 / 11:47 am

      Good luck with the move and I love me a neat and clutter free closet

  25. April 13, 2016 / 12:04 pm

    Thankfully, my walk-in closet is big enough so I don’ t have to pack things away. I do need to empty it out and donate shoes and clothes I no longer wear. I’ve been putting it off way too long. These are all great tips.

    • April 15, 2016 / 11:46 am

      I would love to have a walk-in closet one day lol and thanks

    I love all of your tips! I am such a slacker when it comes to my closet. I haven’t cleaned it in years, but NEED to badly!

    • April 15, 2016 / 12:23 pm

      Aww thanks and hope you manage to clean it this year

  27. April 12, 2016 / 11:16 pm

    I love this post! I also don’t forget to give away clothes I am not willing to wear this year. I always keep the basics along with some nice pastels. 🙂
