There are some clothes that you probably wear regularly. Some clothes are worn seasonally and some are not worn without a program. Clothes should be separated by thinking about such categories. The wardrobe should also be arranged in the same way. Sometimes, a beautiful dress is hidden behind another dress and thus you can forget about many dresses. So they should be kept in such a way that all the clothes can be seen very easily. 

Also, all clothes or things of the same type should be kept together. For example, all belts together, all t-shirts together etc. Try to keep your undergarments and other small items of clothing separate, as they can easily get into other clothes. Then they are not easily found.
