Finding your jeans in your closet can be quite frustrating! I used to store mine, folded on top of one another on a shelf, and I could never find which pair I was looking for! In fact, I hardly knew what jeans I had!
After re-arranging my Closet Room (here’s what it looked like before – I still need to do that post on the updated layout by the way), I managed to squeeze in a bit more hanging space, so I decided to dedicate a rail (well half a rail) to storing my jeans.
I now hang all my jeans in a way that I can see them properly! Not only the colour, but the cut, style, and most importantly for me, the leg. I am a jeans person, so I love my skinnies, bootlegs and boyfriend jeans.
Hanging and displaying them like this has made a huge difference in helping me find “just the right pair”.
I have three basic hanging methods, all using wooden hangers.
- I mostly hang my jeans by slipping the back belt loops onto the sides of the hanger. This works for most of my Demi-Curve Levi’s jeans becuase they are low waisted and have enough “room” to do this.
- For my jeans that have a smaller waist, instead of stretching them through the loop, I use these wooden hangers with clips on the ends.
- And the third way I hang my jeans, is by just folding them over the hanger. I’m not crazy about this method as it takes up more room, but it still works and I can see my jeans.
I do feel that my little rail for my jeans is slightly waisted, and I could easily install another rod halfway down this rack and dedicate an entire rail to my jeans, folding them as in the third option. Obvs being half the size, I wouldn’t be able to hang them quite the same! But even if I hung them over the hanger, or used one of those trouser hangers, I’d still get to see them a lot better than if they were shoved into a shelf in my cupboard and never seen!
See those baskets at the bottom? I use the little one to store all my shoe dust bags, then in the bigger ones, I use one to store all my flats and ballet pumps, and in the second one I store all my summer sandals.
