An organized closet is the easiest way to keep track of the items in your wardrobe while allowing even more garments to fit into a tiny space. However, keeping your clothes neatly arranged can be a daunting task, which is where the best velvet hangers come into play.
Slimmed down velvet hangers take up less space in your closet and are even more durable than standard plastic or wire hangers. Typically made with a plastic interior, velvet hangers feature a non-slip coating that stops clothes from falling off, preventing the dreaded pool of delicate blouses that seem destined to end up on your closet floor. Other benefits of velvet hangers include preventing unwanted creases or wrinkles in your clothes and a convenient lightweight design. Clean looking and minimalist, velvet hangers are also a great option for the current clothes rack trend dominating bedroom decor.
I actually remember the first time my mom brought home a box of velvet hangers in middle school. Within three months, she had completely banned plastic hangers from our house and instilled in me a love of the velvet variation that still remains today. Not only are the they incredibly functional, but there's no denying that they look great.
Of course, like any cult product, there are tons of different variations you can buy. So if you want to keep your closet organized, or simply recognize it's time for an upgrade, here are the five best velvet hangers on the market.

A contoured shoulder design also allows your clothes to keep their shape without any unwanted wrinkles or bumps.
