How To Organise A Wardrobe Of Black Clothes

If you have a wardrobe where at least 70% of your clothing are black, you may relate with the struggle of finding certain items without everything mixing together. Your nicely folded clothing may end up becoming unfolded in an ocean of confusion. A great way to organise black clothing, is to go by each season. Depending on the season (it is currently Winter in Sydney), I will pack away my Summer clothing and keep my coats in the wardrobe. If you don’t usually do so, then it may be good to organise all the clothing you wear on a regular basis together.

As someone who is a bit over organised, I like to colour coordinate everything. I have quite a lot of navy, grey, nude and black clothing, which means I will set everything according to their colours. The next step, is to hang all your coats side by side, so that it’s easier to go through them. Hang or fold all your Tops in one pile, and all your knit wears, pants and skirts in their own pile. Place all the black socks and stocking together in a box and if you wear black quite regularly, it’s a good idea to put all your most worn black clothing together, so that you can just whip them out.

If I don’t fold my clothes into their piles of clothing, it usually ends up being a very messy wardrobe. The black turtleneck top I may be searching for, will end up being at the very bottom, while rummaging through I will try feel it by it’s fabric. Then, there is also the different shades of black, but at the end of the day it’s worth it. The joys of wearing black is that it never goes out of style, it’s easy to match and most clothing you may fall in love with, will very likely come in black.

  1. Thanks for the tips! At some point I gave up and just left everything in a pile (it resulted in a lot of confused mornings and tardies on school attendance records lol) but now I hang things up. I added some maroon, navy blue, and olive too, so it’s not all black any more.

  2. I’m actually not a fan of wearing black! I only have very few black pieces of clothing. Blue is my go-to colour. Light blue, baby blue, royal blue, dark blue, sky blue, you name it. My closet is full of blues. Agree with you folding up clothes makes a neater closest, as does grouping clothes according to season. I generally tend to put winter clothes to one drawer, T-shirts in another and underwater too. I fold up my pants and jeans, and hang collared clothes. I still have yet how to store my bags neatly :D

    1. I feel that you suit blue so wonderfully! And there are so many different shades of blue to wear :) I have a few navy blue clothing, but perhaps I will have more colours in my wardrobe to add someday. Yes – I agree, they seem to be just hanging on on the clothing hangers!

      1. Thanks, Katie. I feel medium to light blue shades work well for me. But dark navy blue, I’m not too sure. It makes me look very…regal and formal :D
