Capsule Wardrobe – Could This Be For You?
Ever hear of a capsule wardrobe? If you’ve been around for the last few years, I’m certain that you probably have! But just in case you haven't or just need a refresher, here’s a quick rundown for you. The capsule wardrobe concept is having a closet that's edited down to the bare essentials. That’s right! No jammed-pack closets full of clothes that you probably don’t even wear. It’s wardrobe simplicity at its best!
Benefits of a Capsule Wardrobe
You know that feeling when you open your closet and are desperately trying to figure out what to wear? Well, one of the best things about a scaled down wardrobe is that it reduces frustration. A minimal, condensed collection of key wardrobe pieces can greatly simplify your life. Translation: no more wasted time trying to put together an outfit together each morning! 😉
A Closer Look at the Capsule Wardrobe
Having a minimalist wardrobe is all about curating a limited amount of key clothing items that you can remix into multiple stylish looks. In a nutshell, the idea here to keep your wardrobe limited to just two or three of each core item. Keep in mind that minimalism doesn’t necessarily mean the minimalist style archetype, but minimal in terms of volume. So if you’re seriously thinking about having a complete closet makeover, a capsule wardrobe is probably a good place to start.
