With the right combination of style and function, getting your dream closet is possible. Keeping the basics (and a few details) in mind, here is a list of 10 things every enviable closet must have. From lighting down to a personal touch, it’s these elements that will evoke a leisurely and celebratory idea of dressing that most of us only dream of having. If you’re still unsure how it’s possible, keep reading! And don’t worry — these tips hold true to any closet, no matter the size!

  1. Own organization: First things first, to get the closet of your dreams, you must get organized. Toss anything that you no longer need, and be sure everything has a place (and remains in that place!). Keep clothes that you wear often in reach, and store seasonal items out of sight.
  2. Make lighting a priority: Since no one wants to accidentally confuse navy with black, lighting is vital to a closet. It can also be a great way to add personality. Try a vibrant chandelier or a statement lamp.
  3. Add storage: In closets of any size, storage is important. Instead of choosing plastic bins, consider options with a bit more style like wicker baskets. Since closets have little to no room for furniture, use storage to add color and texture.
  4. Include a personal touch: If you’re a fashion lover, your closet could be the best spot in your house. Although it’s a small space, hanging art or adding a few photos will make the space yours and one you’ll never want to leave.
  5. Take a seat: Having a place to lace up those shoes is important! Even if it’s a small pouf, it will make getting ready in the morning easier. A small piece of furniture will help your closet look and feel more like a room.
  6. Mirrors are a must: Having a (full-length) mirror is a must! If you’re short on space, trying hanging one on the back of your door or cabinets. Sliding mirrors are also a great way to save space.
  7. Hang it up: While they seem minor, hangers are important for a streamlined look. Switching out miscellaneous hangers for a matching set will give your closet a sleek, boutique feel. These Platinum Huggable Hangers ($10 each) are similar to thehangers Whitney Port uses in her closet!
  8. Color code: If you’re serious about a truly chic closet, taking the time to color code your clothes will pay off. Not only will it be visually appealing, it will make finding the perfect outfit a breeze.
  9. Add height: If you don’t have a large walk-in closet, go up! Shelves will work wonders, especially for bulky items like shoes and purses.
  10. Work with what you’ve got: Last but certainly not least, work with have you have! Even if you don’t have Christina Aguilera’s closet, you can create a space that is truly you and one that will let your fashionable side shine.
