If you use your garment rack for out of season clothes storage or for storing special occasion clothes, you want to make sure that you are protecting those clothes the right way.

is perfect for that job! Garment storage bags should feature a zipper to fully close the bag for a good seal, ensuring water and bugs stay out! I like this particular garment bag because it has one clear side that is made of PEVA , which is also an eco friendly material, but the best thing about it is that it allows you to see what is stored in each bag. That way you don’t have to open up endless garment bags to find the right suit or formal dress you are looking for. On the other side of this garment bag there is a fabric backing which serves two purposes. First, it allows for some airflow to counteract the plastic front. And secondly, it can provide valuable protection from sun damage. A properly designed garment bag allows you to save suits, formal wear for years, keeping them safe from water, insects and sun damage. If you have an open style garment rack in your home, a garment cover is a must have for those special clothes that you want to make last!
Here are some tips for buying a garment bag:
• Look for a fully closed model. Sometimes these are vinyl, sometimes canvas, polyester and even hard plastic clothes storage boxes are a great choice when you don’t have space on the closet rod.
• Check to see how many hangers it can accommodate – some only hold one garment, great for formals, while others hold up to eight garments in one bag, which is a better choice for suits and business attire.

Dress shirts hang next to cocktail dresses next to coats next to Halloween costumes, and so on. Unless your closet was designed by an obsessive-compulsive control freak, it probably has but a garment rod and couple of shelves on top, making it difficult to stay clutter-free.
There is light at the end of the tunnel: nowadays, a wide variety of organizing solutions are available for the ones who are not willing to take it from haphazard architects. My all-time favorites are hanging canvas dress bags, which make it easy to sort a vast frock collection by occasion, season or color.
