The weather is starting to cool down here, which is helping me remember that fall is right around the corner. And that mean reorganizing my closet and dresser to move out the summer clothes and move in the winter clothes.

To make things a little easier for when you start updating your closet for fall, I put together a list of tips to help you.

5 Tips For Updating Your Closet For Fall

1. Remove your summer pants and shorts.
My favorite shorts are closest to the door in my closet. That way, I’m able to grab them when I’m getting dressed. I won’t be wearing those on cold fall days, though, so they have to get out of the closet. And my super fun blue and white floral capris that I’ve had longer than most everything in this house, they have to make way for corduroys. Put all your summer bottoms in a tote, then put that away in the attic until next summer.

2. Say goodbye to flip flops.
Open-toed shoes don’t really have a place in cold weather. I live in them during the summer, but my flip flops get bagged up and put away in the fall. While you’re doing this, be sure to take inventory of your flip flops. If your white flip flops have been darkened by too such summer wear, and washing them just isn’t helping, this is the time to get rid of them. Also, make sure that each flip flop has a match too. You laugh, but sometimes they get left behind at beaches and hotels.

3. Put away any non-layering tops.
I’m a huge fan of layering in the fall. Nothing too bulky, but I love a knit top over a tank top. And I’m always carrying around a thin shirt with sleeves in case it’s cold wherever we go. A lot of my casual t-shirts can’t be layered this way, so those get folded up and shipped off the attic. Anything I can layer with — solid camis, thin tank tops, loose fashion t-shirts — all get to stay year round.

4. Move the scarves around.
I wasn’t a scarf person for a really long time because I just didn’t understand the whole fashion scarf thing. I grew up in New York where scarves kept you warm in the winter and that was that. Fast forward to now, when we live in North Carolina and I finally get fall scarves. I actually just picked up a new one two days ago, so yup, I’m all in. I usually keep these in the back of my closet during the summer (because the one hanger they’re on doesn’t take up too much room), but I move it closer to the closet door during the fall.

5. Pick up a few new capsule pieces.
Don’t purchase a whole new wardrobe for fall, but updating your capsule wardrobe with a few trendy pieces is a great way to wear mostly old clothes but feel like your clothes are fresh for fall. Plaid has been rocking the runway and fashion magazine covers recently, so if you didn’t keep your 90’s-grunge era flannels, now is the time to pick up a couple.
