How to Turn Your Closet into a Luxury Boutique

Do you love the way it feels when you walk into the Ralph Lauren store and everything is organized just so?  How the clothes just hang beautifully, and it always smells clean and inviting?  I do.

And although we can’t all move into a boutique on Madison or Rodeo, you can easily recreate the look at home.  With a few simple steps, your closet can feel extraordinary and your clothes can look as good as the day when you first purchased them.

– Organize everything by color and season.

– Invest in a good set of hangers.  Not only will they help keep the shape of your clothes, they will also instantly upgrade your closet.  There are wood hangers to fit every style:  dark stained woods for an English paneled feel (Ralph Lauren), light blond woods for a natural look (Calypso St Barth), painted black for a modern look (Tom Ford), and painted white for a clean, minimalist look (Calvin Klein).  Dry cleaning hangers are meant to be temporary.
