shelve your clutches, hang the rest

GET THE LOOK:

1. SHELVES To keep clutches in place, file them like books. Use sweater dividers to cordon off and protect bags made of delicate materials like satin (which can snag) and patent (which can dent and discolor). Lynk shelf dividers, $7 each, bedbathandbeyond.com

2. HOOKS To keep bags from sagging under their own weight and losing their shape (a danger when they’re left lying down), hang them from hooks affixed to the top of your storage space or unit. Liberty Hardware single-prong hooks, $5 each, amazon.com

3. CREDENZA While this concept works happily in a closet, we love seeing all our bags displayed in an open case like this one. White low rider bookcase, $349, landofnod.com

CUSTOMIZE IT!

Dress up a plain bookcase with molding: This finishing touch makes a room—and your bag collection—feel extra special.
