The changing seasons has me thinking it might be handy to pack away winter clothes so I have a bit more room in my closet. This way, I can pack away summer clothes come next winter and so on. But this doesn't look like it's going to work. Why? I don't really dress seasonally. Sure, the three heavy sweaters and two winter coats can go downstairs with the really wintery boots, but there are no summer clothes I'd pack away besides my bathing suit (which has to be handy in case I win a cruise or tropical vacation).
I can't really afford clothes that can't be layered and worn year round. Sure, some things take a little work, like layering skirts, but it can be done. My summer blouses look great under cardigans and jackets all winter, and those cardigans and jackets serve to keep me warm in the freezing summer air conditioning. I even layer sundresses over leggings and under heavy sweaters. Plus, I really hate the idea of taking pieces out of my wardrobe that could inspire new looks.
Do you dress seasonally?
Are there things you pack away for part of the year? What are they?
Or do you try to make things work for as many season as you can?
