Creating A Capsule Wardrobe
A capsule wardrobe is a small collection of essential pieces that can be mixed and matched to create various looks. This approach is perfect for those who want a streamlined closet without sacrificing style. You can create a capsule wardrobe that will take you from season to season by carefully selecting a few key pieces. The benefits of a capsule wardrobe are numerous: You save time by not having to think about what to wear every day, you will have fewer items in your closet, making it easier to keep clean and organized, and you will spend less money on clothes because you will be purchasing only key pieces that can be mixed and matched to create many different looks. Here are a few tips for making your capsule wardrobe.
You want to ensure that every piece in your capsule wardrobe can be mixed and matched with the others in the collection. A good rule of thumb is to include no more than 20 pieces in your wardrobe. This can be anywhere from two tops, five bottoms, and one pair of shoes to 10 tops, four bottoms, and three pairs of shoes. If you are not going to be able to fit everything you want to keep in your closet, then make sure you know how much room you have. If you live in a smaller apartment, you may only have enough space to store 10-20 pieces of clothing.
Mixing and matching tops, bottoms, shoes, or accessories is a great way to create new looks for your capsule wardrobe. By doing so, you can create many different combinations that will never get old. Another good idea is to add a few accessories (scarves, belts, and jewelry) to spice up your outfits. For example, if you have two tops and one bottom in your collection, you could wear the top with the bottom and mix it with accessories. This way, you can mix and match the pieces to create four new looks without purchasing anything new. The possibilities are endless when creating new outfits with a capsule wardrobe.
