How to Store Your Winter Clothes In Style

I'm calling it now: winter is finally over. (Technically, it's been spring for a little while now, but clearly the weather had other plans.) And even as a bona-fide lover of cold temps, I'm seriously happy to see it go. So happy that I did one of my semi-annual apartment cleanings to prepare for the fairer weather: My heavy navy shirts were replaced by lighter navy one and all coats got the boot... along with my boots. I won't be reaching for the cashmere, wool, or fur for some time, but when winter returns I'll want them to be in ship-shape. Follow these tips to ensure your favorite pieces will be perfectly stored and ready for wear come the next cold snap.



Furs should be in a sealed cloth garment bag and kept in a cool area. If you're really fancy, you can take them to your local furrier and have them store them over the summer months. Typically, their facilities are top notch and worth the extra care.
