I still remember the day I hit organizational rock bottom. I was trying to wrangle a coat from the grips of my stuffed-to-the-brim closet, pulling at the metal hanger as it held on for dear life. I had to literally extract the hanger, as it was stuck in between other hangers and coats and wrapped around a scarf and who-knows-what. I was exasperated. I realized right then and there that I needed a closet makeover.

I had metal hangers. Plastic hangers — of all different widths and colors. Hangers with white dry-cleaner paper on them. Clip hangers that weren’t clipping anything, just hanging out. Mismatched hangers looked terrible and made me cringe every time I opened the closet door. That morning, I decided to toss all the random hangers and finally — against my frugal nature — buy one nice set of hangers that all looked deliciously the same.
As a magazine editor covering home-related topics like organizing and cleaning, I knew velvet hangers were all the rage. I bought 50 black ones and never looked back. They are much thinner than plastic and wood hangers, so they take up noticeably less space. They hang straight, unlike metal hangers. The velvet is grippy, so silky blouses and tank tops stay put, and the curves keep the shape of sweaters without making the shoulders bulge out.
Opening my closet now feels (dare I say it?) calming, a far cry from before. I even bought velvet kid-size hangers for my daughters’ closets and they’ve helped bring a sliver of sanity to one wild and crazy room.
If you want to finally get your closets organized, velvet hangers are a must! With so many options available it can be hard to know which to choose so we've rounded up the seven best velvet hangers worthy of your wardrobe. Keep reading to learn all about them and shop your favorites.
Today's biggest deal:
One customer called them "perfect" before adding, "Sturdy, elegant and slim — exactly what I was needing. Worth every penny."
Other huge hanger discounts:
Reviewers can’t get enough: “They just make my closet and everything in it look so glam! The rose gold brings a touch of class and a smile to my face. Plus, I’ve had them for about a month and not one has broken yet, which in my household is pretty impressive.”
“Wow...these hangers sure made much more room in my closet — they are thin so you can hang many more clothes in a limited space," raved one shopper. "Yet they are sturdy and the flocking keeps blouses (and pants) on the hangers. Very pleased with these!
They feature swiveling rust-proof chrome hooks and velvet that doesn’t shed onto clothes like some competing brands.
"I just replaced all of my wooded pants hangers with these, and made tons more space in our closets," said one shopper. "The best part is that the clips easily move back and forth on the bar, open easily, and accommodate thick fabric - unlike some I have tried that are stiff and do not open wide enough."
One five-star reviewer wrote: “Love them! Makes my 6-year-old’s closet look so grown up and organized!”
