How to Build Your FW Capsule Wardrobe
Have you ever heard of a "capsule wardrobe"? This week we're taking you through the steps to build your own. So what exactly is a capsule wardrobe, you may ask yourself.
Essentially, it is a collection of timeless clothing pieces that complement each other and mix and match in various ways.
Why You Need A Capsule Wardrobe
It's Simply Effortless.
We've all been there - standing in front of a closet full of clothes thinking, "I have absolutely nothing to wear."
We’re about to change that, eliminating decision fatigue once and for all. Fashion should be fun, after all!
Having a curated closet saves you a lot of valuable time while shopping and putting together your looks.
A capsule wardrobe will help you enjoy increased financial freedom, as you don't have to spend money on clothing frequently.
It's a fantastic way to be a more sustainable fashionista! You invest in more timeless, high-quality garments instead of mindlessly hopping on every trend.
How do I build one?
3 Simple Steps
STEP 1: Evaluate your current wardrobe.
Take absolutely every piece out of your closet and assess when you last wore it, whether it suits your lifestyle, body, and whether it brings you joy. Divide your clothes into categories: keep, repair / tailor, give away / sell or recycle.
STEP 2: Plan your capsule wardrobe.
Choose a neutral and versatile color scheme, plan out a balanced number of each clothing category. Initially, stick to the basics & gradually add 1 or 2 patterned or statement pieces depending on your style.
STEP 3: Step into action!
Cross-check your planned capsule wardrobe with all the pieces you already own and fill in the gaps from there. Shopping from sustainable brands or second-hand is an excellent way to ensure a guilt-free shopping experience. OASEAS is a great way to start - just saying.
