Tips we discuss in this video:

Wardrobe Organisation – make it work how you like to store your clothes.

Here is how I store my accessories in my wardrobe (and my wardrobe is all PAX from Ikea in case you’re wondering).

Here are my belts on a pullout rack. This is from Ikea (the whole wardrobe is). I have created a necklace wall – with cuphooks screwed into the wall to hang all my necklaces so I can see them and they are easy to access.

Coathangers

  • What kind to use if you have a small wardrobe, having the same kind of hangers means that everything hangs at the same height which means things don’t get lost.
  • How to manage them when you take your clothes off them.

Colour Palette – Working with a select colour palette – we discussed this concept in depth here.

And if you want to know which colours suit you best so you can create a fabulous wardrobe from colours that flatter you, check out my 7 Steps to Style program which includes my professional colour analysis.

Adding Accessories – make you feel like you’re wearing something different.

General Tips

  • Anything new must meet your “fabulous” criteria – read up about why you should make it an eight.
  • Think about your wardrobe as retail space – every piece must earn its place in your limited space.

You can still have lots of options and fabulous style even in a small wardrobe.

We’d love you to share your tips for creating fabulous style with your small wardrobe!

  • I get my options feeling from scarves. I have been trying to have a seasonless wardrobe, too. Perhaps you both could discuss what makes outfits seasonless?

    • It really depends where you live. If you need very different clothes for winter and summer, then it’s not really possible as fabrics change. But if you live somewhere quite temperate where there is no real winter, then it’s possible to do.

  • Your walk-in closet is wonderful! I am so happy for you, Imogen….you work long hours every day and share your knowledge so generously with all your fans. It’s nice to see that getting dressed daily is going to be a lot easier for you.

    This article (and links) couldn’t be more timely for me. For the first time in almost 30 years, I do not have a walk-in closet, have limited storage space and have gone up a size in clothing, yikes! Any and all tips regarding Seasonless colors and fabrics would be appreciated so much.
    Living in Southern California doesn’t require wardrobe changes, only smart planning.

    I can’t wait to read more on this subject. You girls are the best!
    Have a very blessed Easter with your family.
    a faithful fan,
    Pat
