My Wardrobe Clear-Out & Organisation Tips


I’m mixing it up this week YouTube-wise, so there’s so Weekly Vlog today as for the past seven days I’ve barely come up for air from my laptop keyboard – it’ll be back next week – and instead I welcome you to the first part of a three video series titled #WardrobeWeek. It does what it says on the tin and later on in the week prepare yourself for my shoe collection and a tour round the depths of my closet, but today I’m having a clear-out. Like a serious one, becauseΒ things had got way too un-Virgo for my liking in my wardrobe. Five steps to a streamlined clothing stash with an IKEA haul along the way. Get that bin bag ready..


  • Looking forward to watching this video later Anna, I am always looking for new ways to streamline my wardrobe! Also looking forward to the rest of this wardrobe series, you should check out Caroline is a wardrobe inspiration!

  • Hmmm… should I sneakily watch this video in work? The temptation is too strong not to.

    Loved this! you have definitely inspired me to have a clearout as mine is soooo much worse than yours haha. I love your organisation it’s exactly the same as mine, except I go one step further and separate my dresses out into day dresses, evening dresses and work dresses haha!

    I love your videos, especially the virgo-inspired organizing ones!
    but this canΒ΄t be your whole stuff…. ? I am drowning in clothes because I am unable to get rid of them, but even if I had it all neat and organized it would be at least 4 times this mini closet…. πŸ˜‰
    By the way… I am a super unorganized virgo… what went wrong??? πŸ˜‰

  • Oh i need to do a major closet clean-out!

  • Seriously have to do my closet x

  • Loulou

    Careful Anna for the brim of your hat is going to stay stuck up like that on the sides …. this happened to me and I then stored it in a zara cotton case (dust free) flat on a shelf.

  • Loved this video! I’m in the middle of a wardrobe edit myself (moving cross-country will do that to you), and I employ a very similar method. My favorite was programming your phone to check up on your “maybe” pile. I pulled a plastic tub full of clothes out of my closet I had forgotten about for almost a year (oops!) while packing – and it was great to get rid of all of it!

  • LOVED this video! Definitely liked this switch up, and I’m glad to see that I’m not the only one with a very monochromatic wardrobe haha. Please do more fashion posts/videos in the future. You have fab style.

  • So excited for this series! Now is definitely the best time to clean out the closet, it’s time to get those fall clothes in! πŸ™‚

  • This makes me feel bad as I have at least 20 times as many clothes as you! I need to do this. Could I really have that few clothes? I’m not sure. I like the way it looks though…

  • Sophie

    Ooooh this is making me want to have a good old rifle through the back of my wardrobe! So many things I like to convince myself I do actually wear, but haven’t seen the light of day in well over a year!

  • missmackanne

    Loved this! Makes me want to go and clean out my whole closet right at this very moment!

  • Clementine Buttercup

    I think the best way to whittle down a wardrobe is to define a signature style. Anything that doesn’t fit gets tossed!

  • Viktoria

    This Video help me so much. I really loved it. I also love re-arranging things and Clearing them up. And I wanted to clear-up my wardrobe as well and this gave me some really helpful tricks. Thank you so much.

  • Sasha Monday

    I literally just finished sorting through my wardrobe. There is a massive pile of clothes to go now… I smell a car boot sale! Glad to know other Virgos feel this urge πŸ™‚

  • I love this video! Well done on the organizing, Anna! my nearest ikea doesn’t have the hanging organizer (they said it’s going to be out of stock until September), sad!

  • I love a good wardrobe sort, it always makes you feel clearer and ready for a new season. Fabulous tips !

  • Great advice, I can’t face sorting out just yet. As it’s the summer holidays I haven’t actually got dressed for about 2 weeks and so I am pleading ignorance as to the state of my wardrobe!

    Don’t know if you know this, but a Norwegian website use two pictures of you! The website is, but the picture of you is in a Facebook ad.

  • Carina Stewart

    Loved the video, super helpful! I currently hate the state of my wardrobe..

  • I loved this video! I can’t believe I’m not a virgo because I’m staring at my wardrobe now from my bed wondering if 10pm is an acceptable time to start clearing it out. I’m definitely going to be organising tomorrow. Loved the boxes for your winter gear, definitely a good idea and something that I think I’ll be starting!
    Excellent video Anna, can’t wait to see the rest of wardrobe week πŸ™‚ xx

  • Amanda

    I’m in the middle of a big move right now, and seeing your closet so clean and organized has me excited to start fresh at my new place!

    Would love to see a haul of your new closet additions, I love your very clean and simple style, and look forward to fashion/style posts.

  • This was so helpful! Thanks Anna! Do you have any tips to find your own style? I love your minimalist and chic fashion! πŸ™‚

  • Love a good wardrobe clear out! Won’t be long until I’m doing one in preparation for Autumn!

  • I feel so refreshed after getting rid of all my old clothes and it gives me a good reason to buy more. It’s so calming to see such an organised space and is giving me the impulse to go and clean mine right now.

  • Kate Martin

    I just cleaned out my closet also! It helps to look at a clean closet πŸ™‚

  • I really loved this video, it have me great ideas and tips, thanks Anna πŸ™‚ x

    Love from France, Victoria

  • I freak out about clearing my wardrobe thinking I will lose too much stuff. But it’s amazing how much easier it is to match things together and be more creative with your clothing when it’s not all jammed in! Great video

  • Kerrie

    Hi Anna,
    Have you checked out Project 333 – 33 items of clothing (including accessories, but not workout gear, pjs and undies)? The idea is that you wear only these thirty-three items for 3 months – so it’s a seasonal capsule wardrobe – and obviously some items are transferrable between seasons – others will need to be stored away. Two objectives – to simplify life and to minimalise possessions (for those bunking consumeristic values). I have been following some of the key advocates on Facebook – mostly because I like nosing about in other people’s stuff πŸ™‚ But also because I love a capsule wardrobe and culling & cleaning!…no I am not a Virgo.
    Keep up the wardrobe videos… LOVE them!!!!

  • This video is great I do this all the time πŸ™‚ and no, I am a Sagittarius but we still like to be OCD πŸ™‚

  • I love the video. Very useful!



  • very useful video! i like your style!

  • Claudia

  • Christine

    Oh. Its a sign. The closet gods have sent you to make me clean it out. Ooh. very in need of declutter. very in need.

  • This was so helpful! I’ve been avoiding my wardrobe clean out for weeks, now its time to get on it!

  • Twiddling my thumbs as I anxiously await the rest of #wardrobeweek!

  • I loved the video, it was really helpful πŸ™‚

  • Louisiane T

    I’m just re-doing my wardrobe too so these tips are really helping me!

  • Hannah Morrison

    I did a huge wardrobe sort out before I came on holiday but I still have two draws to sort out when I get back

    I loved this video. I’m so inspired to clear out my wardrobe. It’s absolute chaos.
    Wish me luck!

  • The Queen of Dreaming

    Loved the video, probably my mum wants you has daughter after sawing your wardrobe ahah!

  • fab&otherf*words

    Mine still isn’t as tidy as yours, but I did film my own wardrobe organisation vid here: Thanks for sharing your tips too. Mine is due another clear out soon so I’ll definitely be looking into some of the storage ideas you mentioned πŸ™‚

  • Taru

    I think less is more, because when you look at your wardrobe you can see everything in one glance and you can decide right away what to wear. Like in grocery shop, when you need to buy for example hand soap there are so many options it takes time to decide! When there’s like four soaps, you make your decision quicker. I also think your idea of putting a bag full on clothes somewhere hiding, IS AMAZING! Thank you!

  • sharonredpoppypinkpeony

    I found your site through a Bloglovin’ email. This is a fantastic video~ fun to watch and very informative! I moved from NYC (Brooklyn) to Michigan in June and had to do some donating, storing, and whittling down, and I’m kind of still in the I-can’t-even-look-at-clothes-or-other-things phase because it was so much to deal with! But I am getting a little excited for the fall season and picking up a few new pieces of clothing.

  • Very useful tips, love it. Here is my article on a same topic. Feel free to visit for more wardrobe detox tips
