The stylists of Fitz, a new closet-cleaning and styling service started by Gilt cofounder Alexandra Wilkis Wilson and Fandango founder J. Michael Cline, have seen a lot of messy closets.
Business Insider recently tagged along with stylists Ellie and Maggie during a Fitz Foundation appointment — which for a flat fee of $US300, gets two stylists to help curate and organise the items in your closet and drawers.
We asked Ellie, the lead stylist, for her top tips for keeping your closet in order and clean — ahead, her advice.
Ellie, who asked that we not use her last name because of her contract with Fitz, suggests a bi-annual closet cleaning session. During those times, you can purge items you no longer want to create space for updated pieces.
Fitz stylists, which work in Manhattan, Brooklyn, Queens, and Fairfield County, Connecticut are use to seeing small closets. To save space Ellie highly recommends hanging closet items on a thin, velet hanger which save space. They also prevent items from falling and slipping.
Organising your clothes by their type -- long sleeve, short sleeve, button ups -- and colour can shave time off getting ready.
When you're inspecting your clothes during an edit, make sure there's no tears or stains.
