In my experience as an image consultant (personal stylist) working in client’s wardrobes, accessory storage is something that can make a big difference to how stylish you are. Why? Well if it’s hard to find your accessories, hard to see them or access them, then it’s unlikely you’ll bother wearing them.
If it’s easy to find them, see them and organise them, then you will take the time to wear them (or wear a greater range of them).
I’m often asked about how to store accessories, and have found 18 easy ways to store them, depending on your wardrobe and accessory range, here are just some fab ways you can think about storing your accessories. Most of these are DIY options

16 Wardrobe Storage Tips to Make Finding Things in Your Wardrobe Easy
Some fabulous ideas. I love having the different knobs on a wooden board for necklaces and the bottles for bangles. I adore accessories and have different ways of storing them. I found some really pretty fabric boxes with various slots for jewelry that I stack in a drawer as well as a tie hanger that I also use for necklaces. I think visible fun storage encourages us to play with our accessories and actually incorporate them into our daily outfits.
Thanks for this info. Imogen!
My grandmother had an enormous lamp on her dressing table, with an enormous lampshade–onto which she pinned all her brooches.
All great ideas and all new to me except the ice cube tray one. Thanks for sharing.
Thanks for sharing, fantastic advice!
Wow I love these ideas! I think I’ll give the pipe shoe storage a go – love it!
I love near the sea in Melbourne and have problems with jewellery tarnishing quick in the sea air… So I use plastic ‘take away’ tubs for all my statement necklaces and bracelets and they stay perfect. I stack them in an IKEA capsule cabinet to make them look fun. And I can see everything easily!
Wow. So many clever and attractive storage ideas. Because I love to collect vintage things, I use old sewing boxes for jewelry and countertop hand towel racks with moveable arms to hang my necklaces. Love the idea for the scarf storage with clips on a hanger. I’ve been looking for an organized way to store mine. Thanks for that tip!
What great ways to sore your accessories!
