We are all guilty of filling our wardrobes with clothes we might only ever wear once but are perfect for the right occasion. However, organising dresses in your wardrobe will make it much easier to know where everything is located when picking out something special. We’re pleased to include this post with tips on wardrobe organisation. Below we will go through four tips to organise the dresses in your wardrobe.


The power of categorising the clothes in your wardrobe should be considered as it gives you a great idea of how much space you have to store your belongings. So you can figure out what to keep or give away. When organising your dresses, you can categorise them by season. If you are going into the summer months, it’s a good idea to hang your summer dresses in places that are easy to access. And then store longer or warmer dresses typically worn in the colder months somewhere else. If you have a designer dress you don’t want to crush, you can hang it somewhere safe, so there is no risk of damaging it.

Separating different types of clothing in your wardrobe is also a good idea. For example, hanging all of your trousers in one place and then hanging all your dresses in another. If you want to be extra organised, you can even sub-categorise your clothing. Divide into casual trousers and formal trousers, for instance. The same can be applied to dresses, categorising them based on style, for example, sleeve length or material. It’s all about finding what works best for you, so don’t be afraid to try out a few options and see what style of wardrobe organisation you like the most.


Another great way of organising your dresses is by separating them based on colour. Not only is it aesthetically pleasing to look out but it also is beneficial when it comes to searching for a particular dress. If you know the dress colour you want, you immediately eliminate wading through several unsuitable dresses for the occasion if you have colour-coded your wardrobe. If some dresses have more than one colour or a unique pattern, you can group them all. This makes it much easier to find bright or distinctively patterned dresses when you open your wardrobe.

If you have a lot of shoes that go with all of the dresses you have, you can organise them as well so you can easily find the matching pair. One great idea is to use the space below where the dresses are hanging to place the matching shoes.  This will help significantly reduce the stress of picking out an outfit in a rush.

Invest in matching hangers

If you want to take the organisation of your wardrobe to the next level, then investing in some high-quality hangers that match is a must. No matter how well you have organised your wardrobe, many different hangers made from plastic and metal wiring can create quite a mess when it comes to pulling clothes out. What’s so great about this simple tip is that it is relatively inexpensive but dramatically affects how your wardrobe looks and functions.

Using matching hangers means that all of your dresses will hang at the same level. This means you can quickly get an idea of your different length options and make the right choice with less effort. There are many kinds of hangers, so important things to consider before purchasing include the type of texture and size that will work for your wardrobe. If you have a lot of pretty delicate dresses, opt for soft hangers that are less likely to cause any damage to your clothes when pulling them out of your wardrobe.

Use it or lose it

The phrase “less is more” is indeed accurate regarding your wardrobe. It is easy to keep every item of clothing you have ever purchased, even if you no longer like it. However, if you don’t wear a particular dress anymore, it is just taking up space in your wardrobe; therefore, you should get rid of it. Not only will it create more space for you to add dresses you will wear, but you can also make some quick money by selling the clothing you don’t like and possibly offering someone else the opportunity to enjoy the item like it’s new. You will even do your bit to cultivate a more sustainable society by thrifting clothing items you don’t gel with anymore instead of having them take up unnecessary space in a cluttered wardrobe.

Tackling a messy wardrobe can sometimes sound quite daunting, but once you do it, you will appreciate how organised it is whenever you open your wardrobe. It will save you a lot of time in the long run when it comes to finding outfits to wear, and it will be highly pleasing to look at. Try the tips we shared above and see which methods work best for you.
