Color-coded Closet: yay or nay?

This photo, from the blog of Material Concern (a Shop It To Me Trendsetter), instantly made me think about re-organizing my closet (it’s that spring cleaning time of year!)…  and the merits of organizing clothing by color vs. by type of garment.


I’ve always been a personal fan of organizing by item type (pants together, skirts together, dresses, etc) with color being secondary.   Of course, after sorted by clothing type, all of my white t’s are nicely stacked and black pants hung together….

However, I definitely have some friends who primarily organize by color-coding their closet, sometimes even in rainbow order!   A little quirky I think!

How about you?
