You can't build a house from the roof down, and though some might argue that good style begins and ends with your outfit, we think that it all comes down to having a solid closet.

(Of course, we have approximately a million other articles on this site on how to stock your closet for maximum killin'-it-ness.) Today, we're talking about the bones. The foundation.
The way your closet is set up is integral to how efficiently, effectively, and creatively you can put together outfits. You'd never give a work presentation when you're hungover and half awake; so why expect a clunky closet to perform?
You don't have to have a walk-in situation, custom cabinetry, or even a door to create your own happy place. You just have to be prepared to think a little unorthodoxly about how you're organizing your stuff. The payoff? Next time you're standing in front of it in just your PJs, you'll feel more amped than annoyed (and you can hold onto your wire hangers, too!).
