Hello, June! Summer has unofficially begun and that means it’s time to get your summer closet in shape. As you switch your closet over from spring to summer, it’s the perfect time to download the Hanger app!
After taking all the fall/winter clothes that were leftover from the chilly spring days out of your closet, your wardrobe is ready for your summer favorites. Here are some tips on how to transition your closet in the most efficient way.
1. Focus on the essentials. What are you key summer style items? Start there!
These are a few of my key summer items:
- black gladiator sandals that literally match everything
- floral print kimono to dress us any tee or tank
- a pendant necklace to instantly add to any outfit
- tortoise Ray-bans
- a small Coach crossbody bag
2. Create a space to take photos.
I like my items to be the focus so I try to keep the background as plain as possible. Here’s how I took my photos:
That’s a white sheet on my bedroom floor. Nothing fancy! I also used the back of my door for things that were easier to photograph hanging like longer dresses.Try taking jewelry/accessory photos on a white sheet of paper. Another idea – put a hook on a blank wall, and hang each hanging item there for your photos.
Food for thought: This is your style gallery. It’s all about you and your personality. It’s about re-loving the things you once loved enough to buy.
3. Start with your favorites.
Start with 5-10 favorites in each category. Just starting there, you’ll already see so many more outfit possibilities you never thought of!
- Accessories: sunglasses, jewelry, hats
If you purchased an item recently, they’ll be in our product catalog. If not, select ‘take item photo’ and snap a quick photo. As you take the photo, fill in your item details. I tag my items with keywords like color and type and style, like ‘gold, summer, necklace’ and also select the shelf it belongs on. Hint: You can go back later and fill in size, store, brand, and price if you want to get through the picture process quicker.
4. Make new outfits.
Pair items together in your favorite combos and find new ways to wear items together, too! Start scheduling outfits for any important events coming up, vacation, weddings, showers, parties, and then start scheduling daily outfits keeping those in consideration.
5. Invite your friends!
This may be the best part of Hanger. It’s SOCIAL. Invite your friends to swap outfit inspiration, items, and suggestions on what to wear to all your events. I can’t tell you enough much much better this is then texting photos back and forth before you or your bestie heads off to important event.
Invite friends through Hanger by selecting ‘invite friends’ at the top of the friends tab. Then select all your friends in your contacts list on your phone
Show your friends the outfits you’re planning and see what they think! Help them plan their outfits and swap items to make each other’s style that much better.
