Closet Organizers for the Closet Clueless

Admit it! You were incredibly jealous of Cher's virtual closet the first time you watched Clueless, and every time after that as well! I mean, what fashion-conscious girl wouldn't want her entire wardrobe at her fingertips? To actually have to walk into the closet to get a top... as if! But alas, life is not this simple, and hangers do not revolve at the push of a button unless you're at the dry cleaners. Factor in busy lifestyles and overdue laundry days and your closet can be anything but the happy place it was when you first introduced it to the Marc by Marc spring '06 collection.

Sound familiar? Luckily, a new year is coming up, meaning it's the perfect time to organize your favorite part of your room... your closet! With our fun tips and ideas you'll waste less time fishing through the tangled mess of sleeves and sweaters, and always look put together no matter how little time you find yourself with in the morning.

First, take inventory. You probably have more than a few things hanging in there that you haven't worn for years, and never will, yet you keep them anyway. Donate them, sell them on eBay, just please, learn to let go. Especially if shoulder pads are involved.

Next, get out your camera because it's fashion show time! This is the part where you model all of your favorite outfits to see what looks good and what looks like Halloween came early. Turn up the Spice Girls' Greatest Hits CD, have a friend there for a second opinion, and snap away! Then, definitely post your favorites on StyleDiary! This way, you have a log of all of your options, and we get to see them too.

It helps to come up with themes, like casual days, outfits with jeans, work clothes, interview outfits, date outfits.... the list goes on. Don't forget accessories! A few necklaces, a cool scarf, or different shoes can completely change an outfit and help you make the most of your wardrobe. This part might take awhile, but think of it like playing dress up, and more importantly, think of all of the time it'll save you in the long run. Then, when you're in a hurry in the morning, you can just scroll over to the outfit of your choice, and you're done!

Of course, you'll have some updating to do every time you add new things to your closet, but it's definitely the most fun way to explore your style and get organized all at once.
