HowTo Organize Your Scarves

While getting dressed in the morning or looking for a specific accessory, if I can't see it, I'll probably forget that I have it. Creatively displaying everything might be a bit excessive, but keeping my most frequently used items tucked away in a drawer really isn't practical.

In the fall and winter, scarves are a daily staple in my wardrobe. I love how unique patterns and styles can take a simple outfit from drab to fab, while also adding some necessary warmth. The one issue: storing them. I've tried the folded in a drawer idea, circular "scarf hangers", etc. But nothing has seemed to work just right. I wanted to be able to see the colours of my scarves, and only the ones pertaining to the season. 

I packed all of my spring/summer scarves away and started to fold my winter ones into rectangles. I decided to loop them through some pant hangers I had lying around, then proceeded to hang it all up on the back of my closet door. The hanger hooks swivel, so I combined two hangers together by hooking the bottom set onto the last rod of the top. I got my hangers and hooks at Dollarama.

 I love how my scarves look now and it's actually quite easy to fit them back into their spot post-wear. I even did the same with my silk scarves, which I have at the back of another door. They're right at eye level which makes it simple to pick the perfect match. These felt hangers have a great grip on fabric, making sure that nothing slips off. It's so fun when organization becomes decor.

I used to keep my scarves tied up onto this over the door hook (see it here) which did not work out. The corners got kinked, and my favourites would get lost in the jumbled mess. Now, I feel as if I have this cute little boutique-like display which was only a few dollars.

Happy organizing!
