In the morning, some people can throw something on and go. Others need more time: time to try on different outfits and time to explore their options. If you fall into the second category, there are certain closet formats that best support you.

Kim Kardashian's closet organization is the perfect example. The socialite keeps all of her clothes at eye level, has organized them by event, and has a sofa for laying out clothes. Organizing professionals can't get enough of her set-up. 

'In the world of celebrity closets, Kim Kardashian's simple space appears to be used as a dressing room for a limited amount of immediately available garments, with the remainder, including shoes, purses, and jewelry stored elsewhere, helping her get ready for events more easily,' says Interiors Therapy expert Suzanne Roynon.

'Organizing a closet is different for everyone. Some people like hanging clothes while others like folding them,' comments organizer Barbra Brock. 'Kim Kardashian seems to like the former option of hanging clothes. She's provided multiple rods at eye level so she can see items visually, and they are easy to grab and coordinate.'

'Furthermore, she organizes clothes by color and event, which allows for an easy assessment of clothing inventory. 'Kim's closet wall color and decor further enhance the organizational and dressing capabilities of the space,'  Suzanne says.

With plain white walls, strong lighting, color-coordinated racks, banquette seating, and the floor-to-ceiling mirror wall, Kim can check her outfits from all angles to ensure she makes maximum impact wherever she goes.'

Finally, the perfect closet for dressing is built with trying on multiple outfits in mind. 'A nice addition to Kim's closet is that she has a sofa for laying out clothes and enough room to try on items to determine if her selection is the right choice for the moment,' Barbara says.

Suzanne adds: 'Like many women, Kim tends to try on various options, leaving the discarded choices strewn on the floor. Fortunately, the clean lines of this part of her closet mean a quick fix to return everything to hang in its rightful space.'
