After: Stylishly Sorted
Outfitted with a custom system, Gibson’s overhauled closet now stashes all of her go-to pieces for the season. The biggest lesson her closet teaches is to tailor your closet for your specific wardrobe. “I don't wear dresses often—pretty much never. Therefore, I didn't need a lot of long hanging space. I opted for two shorter hanging spaces that provide adequate storage for blouses, sweaters, and tops,” she says. And remember, an organized closet actually begins with the shopping process. Rather than buy five cheap pairs of jeans that will clutter the drawers, Gibson prefers to invest in a single quality pair that will last for years. “I ask myself a lot of questions prior to purchasing something. If I'm spending money on clothing, it needs to be something I'll love for years to come.” For even more smart shopping tips, consult our top 10 shopping lessons.
