Things commonly known as Wardrobe include:

  • A large cabinet used for the storage of clothing; Traditionally, wardrobes were used in homes before built-in closets became popular. Wardrobes would normally stand on the floor, with two full length doors on the front that would swing open. Mirrors are often placed on the doors.

    • Famous fictional wardrobes include the eponymous example in C. S. Lewis' book The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe, a gateway to the magical world of Narnia.

  • The entire collection of clothing or costumes used by a person, or in a musical performance, play, film etc. If clothing fails to fulfill its intended purpose, especially that of protecting the wearer's modesty, the result may be termed a "wardrobe malfunction".

  • The department in a theatrical company, film production unit, etc. responsible for acquiring, maintaining, and distributing costumes and other clothing worn by actors and performers.

A wardrobe or armoire is a standing closet used for storing clothes.  Where do you store your clothing?  Do you use a dresser or do you throw your closes on the floor?
