With temps beginning to rise and long, sunny days on the horizon it’s the perfect time to update your closet with a few new on-trend pieces from Target-exclusive brands A New Day, JoyLab and Who What Wear! But don’t put your winter wear away just yet! There’s still plenty of ways to incorporate your favorite pieces into your spring looks. We tapped Target Stylist Zanna Roberts Rassi to share how to declutter and transition your closet like a pro. Check it all out, below!Spring is here! What advice do you have for guests looking to clean out their winter wardrobe?
The end of one season and beginning of another is the optimal time to clean out your winter wardrobe! Although time consuming, the best tip to cleaning out a wardrobe is to try things on—effectively “shopping” your wardrobe. When it’s on, ask yourself, does it make you happy? Would you buy it all over again? What’s a new way you could wear this next year that you haven’t tried? Think about ways you can transition your favorite winter pieces into warmer months.
Which winter items will you keep in rotation for transitional spring dressing?
Universal Thread denim. No matter what the season, denim is my fail safe. Jeans in the winter with sweaters, in the summer with crisp white shirts and bodysuits with heels for night. Basically I can’t dress without it!
Sweatshirts with everything—but there is always a balance. Jeans and heels, skirts and sneaks, oversized with tights as dresses. I’ll wear them for the gym, to dinner, you name it!
Midi dresses are perfect in summer with a cute flat, or in winter with tights and a turtleneck underneath.What are some of your top tips for reorganizing a particularly messy closet?
If your closet is really bad, I find the best way to reorganize is to simply empty it and start fresh. Throw everything on your bed and use the four pile strategy: toss, tailor, donation station, keep. When putting things back, I swear by color coordinating. We do this on set and it’s the easiest way for your brain to sort!
Another tip I’ve adopted is putting items away with the hanger hooked backwards. After you wear the item, hang it back the right way. After a month, you’ll see what you’re actually wearing and next time decluttering will be a breeze.
What new items from Target are you adding to your wardrobe this season?
- Anorak: The days of choosing between fashion and function are finally over! The runway was crawling with these updated jackets.
- Rain Boots: With everything.
- Mules: Equally perfect with denim or a dress.
- Cropped Jeans: With a deep cuff!
- Matching printed suit: Wear it as one cool suit or split up and wear with jeans and neutrals!
