The 4 Closet Organization Hacks Our Store Manager Swears By
Your wardrobe is full of potential, as long as you can find what you’re looking for.
Since March, I’ve rearranged my desk at least four times, found new spots for about half of my plants, and spent a not insignificant amount of time deliberating the optimal location for a hedgehog-shaped paperweight that is, for some reason, in my possession. Nothing about this is a mystery: When you’re home all the time, you notice more things about your space and how it impacts the way you feel.
Up until this month, the one space I’d avoided tackling was my closet, which houses not only my clothes, my fiance’s clothes, and my dog’s clothes, but also a host of random objects, including (but not limited to) lion ears from many Halloweens ago and multiple tambourines. But after New Year’s, I knew it was time to take action, and I successfully rid my wardrobe of pieces that were no longer serving me (I still have the lion ears, because you never know…).
From there, the only thing left to do was reorganize my remaining pieces, and for that, I decided to call in a professional. I could think of no better person than our D.C. store manager, Twayla, who oversees not only the in-store experience and our incredible team of stylists, but also a stockroom full of just about every M.M. piece there is (a.k.a. my dream closet). Here are her tips for getting—and keeping—your closet in tip-top shape.

Another way to develop your personal style is by working with an M.M. stylist, whose goal is to make sure you’re choosing the right pieces for your body type, dress code, and lifestyle. By working with an expert, you’ll discover new outfit pairings, fall in love with silhouettes you didn’t realize you could pull off, and avoid buying pieces you won’t end up wearing. Once you’ve finished reorganizing your closet, I highly recommend treating yourself to an appointment at our D.C. store (or a virtual appointment, if you’re not in the D.C. area)—it’s the perfect way to set yourself up for success in 2021 and beyond.
