Every now and again, we all look despairingly in our wardrobes thinking we have nothing to wear, or nothing matches, or there;s so much in there we can’t even see what we have. And we often think about the kind of simplicity we could achieve by creating capsule wardrobes.
Alexandria Blaelock, author of Build Your Signature Wardrobe: How to look good and feel confident in four steps says, “Capsule wardrobes are all the rage right now, but you can’t create a functional capsule wardrobe without a plan.”
Here are Blaelock’s tips for creating capsule wardrobes:
- Know what kind of capsule you want. The term “capsule wardrobe” is used to describe different kinds of wardrobe, so decide which one you want. Is yours a small set of themed clothing (e.g., evening wear), the basis of your wardrobe (e.g., the ten item wardrobe), or your entire wardrobe.
- Set a budget. A smaller wardrobe isn’t necessarily a cheaper one. You may have less clothes, but they need to go further, so make provision for that.
- Pick the right clothes for your life. A small wardrobe doesn’t leave much room for error, so make sure that it’s practical and functional. Put the Princess back in her box and prioritise the Cinderella clothes you’ll wear every day.
- Don’t compromise on style. A small wardrobe shouldn’t be boring. You’ll be wearing these clothes all the time, so buy ones you love in silhouettes, colours, and fabrics you adore.
- Prioritise needs over wants. As with any wardrobe plan, make sure you make provisions for the things you need like new underwear, warm outerwear, and the occasional irrational purchase.
These five tips for creating capsule wardrobes, will result in an exciting functional wardrobe that will meet your needs for a long time without boring you.
