How to Store Your Winter Staples
Until next season, sweaters and boots
You might be rocking your new lace-up flats and transitional jacket, but you must take care of those expensive winter pieces before you store them until next year. Here’s how to prep and pack sweaters and boots.
Then Store Them Like This
For tall boots, use boot shapers ($15) to help keep the form, or, for a quick and easy trick, cut a pool noodle into quarters and place a piece in each boot. Stuff short ones with tissue paper to keep their shape. If you want to store them in a box, then wrap each shoe with an inexpensive piece of felt to protect the material before placing them in an air-tight plastic container ($19). (Again, we prefer clear so we can see what’s in it.)
