Here’s something you may not know about me: I’m notorious for my over-the-top organization skills. But when it comes to maintaining an
organized closet, I could use a little help in the shoe department (or so my roommate tells me and everyone who visits). She’s tired of my Friday night rants: I can’t find my other shoe! These
ankle boots are so dirty! My fave heels don’t fit me anymore! Sound familiar? Here are five expert fashion tips for arranging your
shoe closet (and properly taking care of your shoes) from Matthew Chow, stylist at Page One Management in Toronto.
Fashion tip #1: Keep shoes in clear, stackable boxes. "I take shoes out of their original boxes and put them into clear bins that are all the same size. It keeps shoes clean and organized, and more importantly, you can see which shoes you’re reaching for," says Chow. (Side note: this technique also prevents
sets of shoes from disappearing.)
