"I hang my necklaces by my full length mirror on a row of little nails. It makes it easy to throw one on as a finishing touch." - Anne Keane, Fashion Director
"Huggable Hangers from HSN! Every fashion editor I know uses these at home. They're flocked with velvet so your clothes don't slip off and they're really thin so you can fit way more into your closet, thereby increasing your closet space tremendously. They're really sturdy—strong enough to hold my giant Canada Goose parka(!)—and they're curved exactly right so your clothes hold their shape. Plus, they come in 20 different colors, you can get special ones for shirts and suits, and clips for skirts." - Liz Kiernan, Special Sections Director
"I swear by vacuum sealed space saver bags. It's easier than plastic bins because: A.) You can see most everything in them easily and B.) They take up so much less space. I have at least 6 under my bed right now…and even more in my closet" - Hilary McDaniels, Digital Production Assistant

"I coordinate by color and type. Lightest to darkest, starting with sleeveless, then short sleeve then long sleeve, and from more casual to more dressy within the category." - Lisa Goldstein, Fashion Market Assistant

"My entire closet is in color order (black/brown, gray, blue, green, yellow, orange, pink, red, white) makes it so easy to mix and match when putting together outfits when you can see everything!" - Stephanie Kornblum, PR Coordinator

 

 

"Store off-season outfits and shoes in boxes with a Polaroid/photo on the front to ID contents." - Dora Campbell, Production Assistant

"I find that as long as I keep things categorized simply—button-downs with button-downs, thin sweaters with thin sweaters, blazers with blazers—I'll find what I'm looking for and, more importantly, will put things back in the right place." - Verena von Pfetten, Executive Digital Editor

"I hang my favorite five or six things of the season in the easiest-to-reach spot in the closet. Special occasion dresses go toward the back." - Alison Syrett Cleary, Digital Writer

 

 

"I throw my clothes on the floor, and my boyfriend picks them up and puts them away." - Joshua M. Scanlan, Digital Project Manager

"I have two closets. One for clean clothes and one for dirty clothes. Helps to keep them separate and fresh!" - Lance Weiss, Comedian and Researcher

"I highly recommend folding sweaters with arms under (as opposed to the folding in half down the middle method) to reduce wrinkles. Also, in the service of wrinkle prevention, stack lighter-weight sweaters separately. Stack them under heavier sweaters and they will rumple." - Deb Schwartz, Executive Editor
"After three years of living in an Upper West Side studio apartment with extremely tall, narrow closets, I've finally embraced the beauty of the shoe rack. I used to keep multiple pairs lined up on my floor like a stylist prepping for a shoot—kinda cool, but cluttered-looking and a total dust magnet. After building this (inexpensive!) shoe rack, I slid it up onto the highest shelf in my closet, turning what was once a single, small surface into a multi-tiered storage solution. Sure, I have to use a step stool to reach the highest pairs, but that just makes me feel like I own a whole library of shoes!" - Elana Fishman, Senior Digital Editor
