How To Build A Capsule Wardrobe

Waking up in the morning and deciding what to wear from a large pile of clothes can surely put you off. Sometimes, it can get really frustrating as well. So, what can you do? You can build a capsule wardrobe. That is right, a capsule wardrobe can help you with all of your clothing issues as it focuses on a minimalist lifestyle. 

What Is A Capsule Wardrobe?

A capsule wardrobe is a notion put forward in the 70s by Susie Faux. Initially, it was a way for women to figure out their style. Now, most people choose a capsule wardrobe to follow a minimalistic lifestyle. In this, you choose about 30 to 50 wardrobe essentials that work for you for various things over a certain period. 

There is no hard and fast rule as to what you should be doing when it comes to creating a capsule wardrobe. All you have to keep in mind is that it should contain all the elements that you would wear. Not the ones that you might wear at some point in your life. 

Another thing that is out of the question when it comes to a capsule wardrobe is impulse buying. You only add things that are essential to you and those that you would make use of. 

How Do You Build A Capsule Wardrobe?

That brings us to the question of how you can build your wardrobe. Here, we will try to help you understand the basic things that you will have to do to get to building your capsule wardrobe. So, let’s take a look at the two simple steps that you will have to make to do so. 

Step 1: Declutter

The first step when it comes to creating your capsule wardrobe is you get your entire wardrobe out. Doing this is highly essential as you want to make sure that you get rid of all of those things that are causing your wardrobe to malfunction. 

As you do this, you come across all of those things that you have never made use of and probably never will in the future as well. The best thing to do is to donate, give away, or sell these items so that you can get rid of them from your wardrobe. 

Step 2: Build

The second step is to build a capsule wardrobe. There is a formula for that, and we will get to it in a bit. First, you need to understand that all the items that you will add from this point will be only those that will be highly relevant to you. So, don’t even think about adding things that aren’t necessary. Let’s take a look at the list of things you can add. 

  • Clothes (Jeans, dress, skirt, basic t-shirts, button-down shirt, blazer)
  • Jewelry (bracelet, necklace)
  • Accessories (purse, scarf)
  • Shoes (heels, flats, walking shoes)

You can add 5 to 10 items per category, depending on what is essential for you. But make sure that each of these items is relevant to your needs. Enjoy building your capsule wardrobe.
