That elusive capsule wardrobe
Posted: Jun 10, 2015
Pick a number, any number...do you think you could put together a wardrobe for the spring with just, let's say, 4o pieces of clothing?
Now, some of these pieces will be classic items from your wardrobe that you love, love, and come out every year. But the rest will be items carefully selected, not just because your fell for them, but because they mix and match and will go beautifully with the colour theme you've chosen for your wardrobe.
So, let's get down to the nitty gritty.
Let's look at why a capsule wardrobe is a great idea. How much of your wardrobe is stuffed full of clothes that you never wear? How many things have you never worn and how many things are you never going to wear! The point of a capsule wardrobe is to only have clothes that you love and look great on you. They are about quality rather than quantity
With a capsule wardrobe think of your theme whilst you shop, rather than buying individual pieces. Each new purchase should be able to mix and match with nearly every other item creating loads of amazing outfits that are all easy to put together and look fabulous.
To get the most out of your capsule wardrobe, first choose your colour themes. Most of the clothes should be a neutral colour such as black, brown, grey or navy, your basics that you can build each outfit on.
Then choose your colour for the season, kind of like an accent colour - and one that really suits your skin tones. If you're going for patterns, only have a pattern, for example, on tops so they will go with most of your neutral coloured bottoms.
Vary your style of clothes so you're not limiting yourself to one look for the season. And before buying something, just think, "Will this fab new piece give me at least 3 new outfits!"
