One of the best ways to start the day (that I’ve found) is waking up looking and feeling great. It can turn your whole day around when you have the perfect outfit – no matter what’s going on! If you’ve ever left the house in an outfit that doesn’t quite feel right – you know exactly what I’m talking about. Great news! There’s such an easy solution, to make sure that never happens again. It’s called building a capsule wardrobe. In this article, we’re going to help you build a straightforward, effortlessly chic, and fool-proof capsule wardrobe, so that you never have to leave the house feeling uncomfortable (or stressed) ever again!
Step #1. Get Into a Minimalist Mindset
If you’re a clutter bug (ie. Hoarder) a capsule wardrobe may not be for you. But if you like effortlessness, simplicity, minimalism, and cleanliness, a capsule wardrobe is the perfect go-to solution. A capsule wardrobe makes life easier and better, because it consists of clothing items that are versatile, high quality, and build your confidence instantly!
Step #2. Do a Wardrobe Edit
In the last article, we guided you through doing a full wardrobe edit, pure, and reorganization. This step is absolutely essential before building your capsule wardrobe because the goal of a capsule wardrobe is intention, minimalism, and ease. A wardrobe edit clears out anything that is not being utilized or that doesn’t feel good. Once you’ve done this, you should be left with clothing that fits your personality, your body shape, and your lifestyle.
Step 3. Establish a Color Scheme
While doing a color analysis is highly recommended, a capsule wardrobe normally sticks to very basic neutral colors. The goal is to pick neutral colors that compliment your skin tone, such as cream, gray, navy, white or black. It’s also important to consider material.
Step 4. Curate Key Pieces
Key capsule wardrobe pieces are interchangeable items of clothing that work well together. Most often, they are both chic and classic. This means that they’ll never be outdated. Interchangeable items include things like jeans, black pants, a layering item like a cardigan, a simple black dress, t-shirts, two jackets, a two-piece jumpsuit or shorts, and one or two patterned items such as lace, stripes, or hand-stitching. Remember, when clothes are natural and breathable they are much more functional and long-lasting. For this reason, opt for natural materials like cotton, silk, leather, linen, etc.
Step 5. Remember To Hand Select Accessories
Accessories should be both timeless and simple. Opt for shoes like an everyday boots, loungers, and classic mules or heels. When it comes to handbags grab an on-the-go woven tote and a leather work bag. Capsule wardrobe accessories can include a nice straw hat, classic sunglasses, and a leather belt. While jewelry is personal, hoop earrings and a layered necklace are both classic go-to items that will never go out of style.
