fashion How to sort every item in your closet, according to professional wardrobe organisers. Prue Webb

“I’ve got a closet full of clothes and nothing to wear.”  

As a professional wardrobe organiser, I hear this age-old adage all the time and it couldn’t be truer. 

So many women find themselves buying new pieces constantly but still struggling to find an outfit that makes them feel good in the morning. 

That’s the reason I co-founded The Wardrobe Edit with my friend Kath to help women fall back in love with the key pieces in their wardrobe. 

We met years ago while working for one of Australia’s top fashion brands and it was our shared love of style and fashion that brought us together. 

Now we help women buy less but buy better and a huge part of that is actually knowing what you have in your wardrobe in the first place. 

So, we’ve broken down how to organise the key pieces in your closet to get you back on the road to loving what you own again. 

Listen: Kath and Prue share their advice on Nothing To Wear. Post continues below. 

1. Figure out your foundation pieces.

Trends come and go but there are always those key, foundation pieces that stand the test of time, so pull together your capsule wardrobe of items you wear time and time again and store them in a prime spot. 

We recommend: 

  • A well-cut blazer
  • A good pair of jeans
  • A quality white t-shirt and shirt
  • A statement top
  • A trench
  • Minimalist jewellery
  • Great flats
  • Fun heels
  • A go-to handbag

We recommend:
