A large, organized closet may not need rotation, but mine sure does!
1. More closet space!
This is a baby's closet but it really illustrates great wardrobe rotation skills! Off season clothes packed away in tubs (and labeled even!), current season clothes hanging neatly organized and shoes, accessories, etc in cute green bins.
2. Getting to shop your closet
I love shopping and I'm sure you do too! If all of your off season clothes are packed away, you'll forget some of them and pulling them out later in the year gives you an entire wardrobe of new things without you having to spend any money. Who doesn't like shopping for free?
3. Enjoy the current season better
I don't know about you, but I can get quite sad seeing my summer dresses languishing in my closet all winter. Out of sight is out of mind! This helps me stay focused on the current season. Also, having something exciting to look forward to before a less fun season *coughwintercough* helps me get pumped about the things I do like about that season.
4. Protect your lovelies
Indulge your quilting fabric love by turning them into garment bags!
Vintage and handmade items need extra love and care. Storing your garments properly in the off season will help extend their lives. Make a trip to the dry cleaners at the end of each season to clean garments going into storage and set aside pieces to be mended in the off season. Garment bags will keep them dust free and ready to wear when they come out of storage. This will keep those special pieces in their best shape.
5. Editing your wardrobe
Going through your wardrobe at least twice a year will help you pin point and let go of things you don't wear. If it's time to pack up summer wear and there's that dress that doesn't quite fit right that you haven't worn in all the time it's been out, then it's probably time for it to go.
Do you rotate your closet?
