What is a Capsule Wardrobe?

A Capsule Wardrobe is a collection of essential garments that are timeless and don't go out of fashion designed to be worn together and they create harmony both in color and line.

These essential pieces can be augmented with seasonal pieces. Buy key items in coordinating colors.

Skirts, Coats, Trousers, Shorts, Turtlenecks, Shirts, T-shirts etc...

Collect interchangeable items to make the maximum number of outfits that can be created.

Steps to creating your capsule wardrobe

  • Analyze your style and lifestyle. Identify  what you love, keeping in mind your primary activity. Let the two guide your first step.
  • Track what you wear over a period of one month from the first day to the last. You can do this by creating a folder on your phone then taking pictures of your outfit and adding them to the folder or the old-schooled way of writing the outfit description on a notebook (secure a notebook for this).
  • Sort out your closet and identify which pieces are timeless, frequently worn and most importantly, fashionable.
  • Define your color palette. After carrying out the previous steps you will have identified the color you wear most or you may already have in mind a color you feel good in. This will guide your shopping.
  • Create a wish-list for the missing things. This will help you immediately identify what you need when you see it on a rack. Also helps you differentiate needs from wants thus controlling impulse buying.
  • Control your urge to buy again by re-wearing. Do this in a different more creative and stylish format. If the item works well the second time then it is for keeps but if it doesn't you might consider donating.

Now you'll have your dream capsule wardrobe.

Don't forget to:

  • Invest in quality over quantity.
  • Make sure you feel confident in every piece.
