Remember when capsule wardrobes were all the rage last year? Well, you’ll be happy to hear that they’re about to get big again, especially now when minimal inspired living keeps on growing. Since this type of wardrobe is so minimalist – some have less that twenty pieces of clothing in them!
The whole point of slimming down your wardrobe in this way is so that it helps you declutter your life. Lots of us have loads of items of clothing, some of which we rarely wear. As a result, our closets and wardrobes are often overflowing with untouched items that haven’t seen the light in years or worse, still have price tags attached. If this is the same with you, it’s time to have a clean out and add just a few very versatile items to your wardrobe.
Four Steps to a
1.Clean out your closet
First of all, you need to spring clean your wardrobe and get rid of all the clothes that you very rarely wear. There is no point of holding on to any of these if you never really use them. Once you have cleared your closet, you will find that you have a lot more space for your clothes now. They won’t all be bunched up together getting creased!
2. Assess the clothes that are left over
Now you need to take your time and go through each and every individual piece that is left in your wardrobe. Do you absolutely love it? If so, then you should keep it. However, if you feel indifferent to a piece, then you should get rid of it. One of the main ideas behind a capsule wardrobe is that you only have a few items of clothing, but you love them all. There shouldn’t be any sweaters, jeans, and any other items that you don’t want to wear in there.
3. Buy versatile pieces
As soon as you have more space in your wardrobe, it’s time to go shopping and buy some versatile and more practical clothing that best suits for your lifestyle. Don’t worry; this won’t be too expensive. You can save money if you visit Coupon Sherpa or another online coupon site. There are often lots of coupons and deals available on these sites for a variety of fashion stores. When you are buying new clothes, try and stay away from very bright and bold pieces. More often than not, neutral clothing is a lot more versatile than statement pieces.
4. Be honest about what you actually need
When you are buying new clothes for your capsule wardrobe, it’s important that you are honest with yourself about the types of clothes you need. For instance, if you work from home (a.k.a. blogger), you can probably get away with more comfortable clothing or even have a bit more fun and freedom with your style, whereas those who are in meetings for most days might find it necessary to invest in suits and sophisticated clothing. And if you are a gym bunny, you might want to add a nice sporty twist to your wardrobe.
