Whether you are walking out the door to go to work, lunch with friends, a date, on a fabulous vacation or simply choosing an outfit to wear as you lounge around the house, looking fabulous begins in your closet.
With inspiration from Keep it Chic’s recent post on Closet Essentials, I decided to make my own list of what items need to be present in order to create a simply luxurious closet. With the goal of taking care of the classics and quality pieces so that they last for many seasons to come and providing inspiration readily at my fingertips so that my signature style is always conveyed.
Take a look at my list and let me know what you might add, tweak or eliminate according to your fashion needs. I’d love to hear. The first idea was suggested by Keep It Chic and I had to include it:
*a corkboard/push pin board framed as to display magazine photos or images of outfit ideas that caught your eye
*a full length mirror
*quality hangers (wood, padded, with clips for skirts, etc, but no wires)
*shoe hangers or shelves as to provide an immediate visual
*a steamer (after working at a retail store, I realize how priceless one would be – this is the one I use and love!)
*creative, unique dishes for watches, glasses and every day accessories.
*a plush armless chair or bench to sit on while putting on shoes or tights
*a unique dresser for lingerie, workout clothing – anything that doesn’t need to be on display, but must be taken care of
*concealed laundry baskets (one for darks and lights)
*a beautiful bag or basket for clothes that need to go to the dry cleaner
*a jewelry organizer (easy to see, but keeps everything separate and organized
*a small table or shelf for perfume, sunglasses, any other accessory without adding too much clutter
*shelves for luggage, clutches, handbags, etc
*a special hanger for belts
*hooks the outfit for the next day/evening/etc
*beautiful, plush flooring (whether a rug or carpet)
