The fall season is synonymous with cozy sweaters, stylish boots, and beautiful autumn colors. As the temperature drops, it’s time to rotate out the light summer clothes and bring in the warm, cozy fall attire. However, the process of transitioning your wardrobe can often be overwhelming. As professional organizers, The Personal Helpers are here to assist you. Let’s walk you through our top tips for effectively organizing your fall wardrobe.

The Benefits of Organizing Your Fall Wardrobe

Organizing your fall wardrobe is not just about cleanliness or aesthetic appeal. It also:

  1. Saves Time: An organized closet means less time spent searching for that perfect fall sweater or pair of boots.
  2. Reduces Stress: A clutter-free, organized wardrobe can reduce stress and contribute to your overall sense of wellbeing.
  3. Preserves Your Clothes: Proper organization and storage can help maintain the quality and longevity of your clothes.
  4. Helps Identify Needs: When your clothes are organized, it’s easier to see what you have and identify any gaps in your wardrobe.

Steps to Organize Your Fall Wardrobe

1. Take Everything Out

Start with a blank canvas. Remove everything from your wardrobe to get a full understanding of what you have. This also gives you the opportunity to clean your closet thoroughly.

2. Sort Your Clothes

Create categories like keep, store, donate, and discard. Evaluate each item of clothing based on its condition, your preference, and its relevance to the season.

3. Store Summer Clothes

Once you’ve separated your summer clothes, store them properly. Use vacuum-sealed bags or plastic bins to protect your clothes from dust and insects. Always ensure your clothes are clean before storage.

4. Organize Fall Clothes

For your fall clothes, categorize them by type (sweaters, pants, etc.), then by color. This not only makes your closet visually pleasing but also makes it easier for you to coordinate outfits.

5. Utilize Space Efficiently

Use closet organizers, hooks, and shelves to maximize your closet space. Boots can be stored upright with boot shapers, scarves and belts can be hanged on hooks, and shelves can be used to stack sweaters.

6. Rotate Regularly

Try to rotate your clothes regularly so that everything gets worn. This will also give you a chance to reassess the contents of your wardrobe periodically.

7. Consider a Capsule Wardrobe

A capsule wardrobe is a small collection of versatile, essential items that you love to wear. It simplifies dressing and reduces clutter. Consider creating a fall capsule wardrobe with your favorite and most versatile pieces.


Switching your wardrobe for the fall doesn’t have to be a daunting task. With a bit of planning, you can create an organized, functional, and stylish wardrobe ready for the crisp fall weather. And remember, The Personal Helpers are always ready to assist with your organizing needs to improve your life and make everything easier and more functional.
