Is Your Closet Ready for the Winter Season?

Walking closet

Do you find it hard to empty your closet every winter? Most of us have a tough time freeing up space for different reasons.

Whether it’s because of those bargain deals we got last summer or you simply don’t look forward to the cold months, it can be tedious to rearrange your clothes yet there are simple ways to do it.

Closet Coordination

While the cooler months will require us to wear thicker clothes, you don’t have to throw clothes that you won’t need until the end of winter. By rearranging your closet space, it’s easier to pick what to wear especially after you wake up on a chilly morning.

Instead of hanging knitwear, such as cashmere scarves and wraps, fold them. In this way, you won’t be stretching out their fabrics. It’s also better to buy 100% cashmere knitwear, as it can keep you warm and comfortable for more than one season.

Stores across Australia have started to sell winter apparel at discounted prices. This can be tempting, although you should plan to give up some old clothes to give room for your bargain purchases at department stores.

Seasonal Sales

Australian retailers have begun to sell winter clothing as early as the Easter holidays, as more people have started to stock up on clothes for the cold months.

Retail sales nationwide in April increased by 1% to $25.89 billion, while sales between January and April also rose by 3.1%, according to data from the Australian Bureau of Statistics. Retailers in South Australia posted a 4% year-over-year increase in sales, amounting to $1.7 billion.

Simple tricks to free up space for your closet will help you make better wardrobe choices for winter. Choose to invest in garments that will last for several seasons, since it’s quite impractical to keep up with constantly changing fashion trends.
