|HOW TO CREATE A CAPSULE WARDROBE
If you’re having trouble picking out what to wear each morning, or if you’re storing more clothes than you’ll ever wear, a capsule wardrobe may be the solution for you.
What exactly is a capsule wardrobe? It is a set of versatile pieces of clothing that you love to wear. It can include tops, pants, shorts, shoes and accessories that can all be easily mixed and matched to create many different looks and outfits for a broad variety of events. Capsule wardrobes are typically made up of high-quality, classic pieces that stand the test of time.
The purpose of a capsule wardrobe is multifold:
- To provide ease and save time when dressing each day
- To contain pieces that fit you comfortably and effortlessly
- To minimize laundry, work, and time that it usually takes when managing lots of clothing
How do you create a capsule wardrobe?
First, separate your clothing into 4 categories: love it, maybe, hard-no and seasonal. Then decide what clothing you already have to include in each category. You should end up with your "love it" and some pieces from your "maybe" pile to start your capsule wardrobe. Once you have the basics, begin to fill in the gaps of your wardrobe with new, quality, and versatile pieces. Your capsule can be fluid through the seasons, and you may add new staples that are season appropriate, such as a cashmere sweater for fall, or a well-fitting pair of blue jeans for spring.
Have fun with it! Choose colors that make you feel confident and styles that are comfortable. You just might find that a capsule is just what you needed.
