A capsule wardrobe is a wardrobe that consists of a limited number of clothes, usually between 30 and 40 items, which can be combined in various ways to create many different looks. The goal of the capsule wardrobe is to minimize the amount of things in the wardrobe, increase awareness of the quality and style of clothes, and reduce the environmental impact by reducing consumption. A capsule wardrobe is also a fantastic way to organize your clothes and simplify the daily decision-making process. Instead of overflowing your wardrobe with fashionable but one-off trends, it is worth investing in a few classic and universal pieces, such as a white and black t-shirt, midi skirt, classic trench coat or ribbed leggings.
How to start building a capsule wardrobe?
Think about your needs
Start by thinking about what clothes you need in your wardrobe. Do you work in an office or do manual work? Do you prefer a sporty or elegant style? Based on the answers to these questions, determine what items of clothing are necessary for you.
Take a look at your CURRENT wardrobe
Now it’s time to review your current wardrobe. Organize, remove the things you no longer wear, and put the things you need aside.
Choose YOUR basE
Choose a few wardrobe essentials, such as classic trousers, t-shirts, jackets and dresses. Try to keep them in neutral colors and cuts that can be easily combined with each other.
Add a few accents to your wardrobe that will allow you to diversify your styling. These can be, for example, fashionable shoes, a handbag or jewelry. However, remember not to overdo it and choose only those things that suit your style.
Limit yourself to a certain number of items
The last step is to limit yourself to a certain number of clothes. Usually it’s between 30 and 40 items, but you can adjust this number to your needs. It is important to choose only those clothes that you actually need and that will serve you for a long time.
