Spring is almost here!
You’re probably already noticing shorts, T-shirts, and floral prints at your local stores, getting you in the mindset for warmer temperatures. If you’re already shopping for spring items, you also must consider giving your closet an overhaul for the upcoming season.
This doesn’t need to be a massive undertaking. You can be spring-ready simply by making a few tweaks and adding some key pieces to your wardrobe. Here are our tips on what items you should keep and put away for spring.
What to Pack Away
The biggest items taking up space in your closet are, no doubt, your jackets and coats. Packing away those bulky items will free up tons of space. However, it’s a good idea to keep your light sweaters and jackets available as they can easily be layered over your spring outfits and can be useful on those chilly spring nights.
Other items exclusive to winter — such as bulky scarves, boots, socks, long underwear, and beanies — should be packed away for next year. If you have any items made of a thick fabric, such as sweater dresses or vintage polyester dresses, you might consider switching them out for lighter fabrics this season. For layering in the spring, make sure to keep your tights and over-the-knee socks in your drawers to pair with shorter dresses and skirts.
