Your closet looks a lot like mine. :) Donate everything you haven't worn in one year and your problems will be over.

I'm smiling because my robe is 750 X 750mm. I put all the stuff I don't wear in those vacuum sealed bags in a suitcase or decorative trunk. You could also put in a lower hanging bar on one side and have one half just for short skirts and shirts. Clear plastic boxes for the jumpers up top would also neaten things up.

My closets always used to look like this, until several years ago when I invested the money in monogrammed white wooden hangers and decided to organize my closet! My first step was donating clothing I no longer wore to charity. That cleared up lots of space. Then I decided to hang my pants, skirts, blouses, dresses, etc., separately rather than shoving everything in together. I was able to add a lower bar under the blouses, which almost doubled my closet space on one side. I then arranged everything according to color. I put my sweaters and scarves in clear storage boxes with covers and stacked them on the shelves up top. I must admit having nice hangers made a huge difference, and five years later, my closet remains picture perfect. I also added a pretty mirror. Good luck on your project.

I agree that the first thing you should do is pare down what you own in there and donate what you don't actually wear. Another easy tip is to use the exact same hangers for everything in there so they all hang the same. It looks bad when the tops of the hangers are different heights. I like th idea of the boxes for the sweaters and thing up top. You may want to store seasonal things elsewhere as well, under your bed for example and switch them each season.
