What is a Capsule Wardrobe?
A capsule wardrobe is a set number of clothing pieces that go well together to help you create many different looks.
Why wear a Capsule Wardrobe?
The thing about a capsule wardrobe is its ease of wear. When you have curated, and hand picked the pieces that are suited to your life style and your brand, it allows you to have your own signature look, and it will build confidenceand you will be camera ready at any time.
Once you understand what your own signature look is, going then you are able tostart building your curated capsule wardrobe. A wardrobe of this style is also very cost effective and when you buy the best quality pieces you can afford they will last much longer for you.
Won't a Capsule wardrobe become dated and mundane?
Absolutely not! A capsule wardrobe, when built correctly gives you the oppourtunity to try on many different styles to see what feels the best and most comfortable to you. This is where experimenting with different styles of accessories and add on pieces come in.
Will I need alot of add on pieces?
The number of add on pieces is completely up to you. I find starting with a base of 3-5 extra pieces is more then enough to stretch your capsule pieces and create a number of unique looks that will be your very own.
What Pieces are in a Capsule Wardrobe?
Some of the basic pieces in a starter capsule may be a really great pair of dark wash jeans, white shirt, a skirt for your life style/brand and a jacket or cardigan. There are more pieces of course but this is a good starting point and you can find some tips and tricks on putting these pieces together in my Free Ebook "The Basic Five Pieces" find it here.
A starter/basic capsule wardrobe should first focus on the basic pieces you can wear in all seasons or be able to take you through 7-9 months of the year, depending on the type of weather and enviroment you are currently living in.
