If you're anything like us here at Abaya Addict, you believe you can never have too many scarves. You never know when you need that perfect shade of blue to top off an outfit... and you are well aware that changing up your scarf on a Solidify can create a whole new look. This is one addiction that we can say is very well justified! Now.. the only question is, how do you store that beloved scarf collection? We've got some solutions for you but before we get into that we've got some preliminary steps to take.
1 - Go through your scarves and donate any that don't suit your style anymore, any that you regret wearing 5 minutes after you walk out the door (read: annoying, slippery fabrics) and any that may be well past their prime. No need to store any scarves you aren't actually going to wear. And look at the bright side, the more you get rid of, the more room you have to buy new favorites!
2 - Evaluate what space you have available for your hijabs. Perhaps you've got a spare drawer, or maybe you are limited to some vertical space in your closet. What's important is that you have enough space to keep your hijabs in one place. Tip: Don't underestimate the space you have. You can always use the back of a door or install racks on an empty wall or in your closet to hang scarves on.
Ok, now that we've got that covered - let's talk about your options for scarf storage.
Folded and Stacked in a drawer:
This is a great way to store a lot of hijabs while still being able to quickly spot the one you're looking for. The key here is to stack them vertically rather than in piles.
If you are a busy bee, and you don't have time to sit to fold your hijabs neatly and prop them up vertically, then scarf hangers might just be a good option for you. It's the "lazy" way to quickly store away hijabs by simply finding an empty hole, throwing your hijab on, and putting away in the closet.
Sweater or Shoe Organizer:
This works well because the built in shelving keeps the scarves organized. If you were to pull one out of the middle of a pile it wouldn't ruin all of them. Folding would work best with silky materials, while rolling may work better for cottony fabrics.
Do you already organize your scarves in any of the ways listed below or do you have other suggestions on how to store your scarves? We'd love to hear in the comments section below!
