Bundle Up: How To Store Winter Coats
from PinterestUse quality hangers I like to use wooden or padded hangers to hang my heavy coats. Wire hangers will bend and break under the weight of heavy outerwear. They can also pierce and damage your coats. Quality hangers will make a huge difference in making outerwear last.
from Green Tea DesignCreate room in your closet Using quality hangers won't be of much help if you're stuffing your coats into a crowded closet. Put your fall coats away to create enough space for your heavier outerwear. Having room to let your garments breathe goes a long way!
from Marcus DesignInvest in garment bags I use garment bags or protective coverings for my special, dressy coats. I don't use my posh winter coats every day, but I do use them for nice occasions and holiday gatherings. To keep them looking fab, I store them in garment bags and hang them in my closet. This protects the more sensitive materials from things that may be clinging to your other coats.
from PinterestAccessories Growing up, I was told to store my gloves, scarves and hats inside my jacket. I would stuff them in pockets and sleeves. While that's still OK if you're on the go, I have a small basket near my coats where I can store the accessories overnight. Storing things in pockets allows for germs to grow, which is what we're trying to avoid!
