It can be hard to organise your accessories, especially when they are small such as cuff links and pinky rings. There is nothing worse than going into your wardrobe, and then facing a giant mess of clothes, accessories and shoes all cluttered into one small confined space. In this article, we will go through how to organise and store your accessories to keep them uncreased, clean and beautiful.

Tie storage

Neckties come in a wealth of colours, patterns, styles and materials. If you have a large collection, it can be difficult to determine how to store them and keep them nice and organised.

The recommended way to organise your ties is by purchasing a tie rack for your wardrobe. These are very affordable and they do the job well.

If you have any knitted ties, these should not be on a hanger as they will stretch, instead have these rolled up and placed in a drawer organiser. If you have some spare room in your drawer organiser, this will also be great for your pocket squares. Ensure these are folded and placed neatly, if not, you could always have them in your blazer jackets so you are always ready.

Cufflinks

If you only use cufflinks every so often, then you could opt for placing them in small leather or fabric pouches to keep them separately. Depending on whether you spend a lot of money on them or just buy a pair when you need them, you could even place them all in a larger fabric bag so that you know where they all are. Unless you are in corporate business, chances are you don’t wear them a lot, so it is easy to lose them when you haven’t worn them in a while. If you spend a lot on your cufflinks, you won’t want them loose, and you won’t want them all combined together. Instead, opt for a cufflink storage box to keep them nice and separate.
