Capsule wardrobes are rather trendy right now, and they are a fantastic way to save closet space at home along with saving money on the number of different outfits that you buy.
A capsule wardrobe allows you to strategically select a number of different fashion pieces that you can incorporate into a wide range of different outfit ideas for work, recreation, going out, and more. I mean, minimalist travel wardrobe is a thing lately, right?!
Whether you’re tired of sifting through piles and piles of clothing in your closet and want something simple and fresh, or are interested in how a switch to minimalism could improve your life, here are some tips to keep in mind when putting together a capsule wardrobe for every occasion.
Stock Up on Basics
Basics are your best friend when it comes to putting together a capsule wardrobe. You want to gather a selection of clothing items that you can easily mix and match to create a variety of different outfits suitable for a range of occasions.
A couple of pairs of dark jeans, plain t-shirts and blouses, and one or two dark skirts in a style that you like should be sufficient.
Go for neutral and plain colors rather than busy patterns, so that it’s easier to pair different pieces with each other.
The best part about this is that you can invest a little more into each piece that you buy; a designer pair of jeans will fit better and last much longer compared to the high street options.
Consider Your Lifestyle
When putting together your capsule wardrobe, the main thing to consider is your lifestyle.
Consider what you do for work, for example, and the kind of clothes that you are expected to wear while you are on the job.
If you work in quite a laid-back office with a relaxed dress code, for example, then you’ll be better off filling your capsule wardrobe with trendy basics like jeans and sweaters.
But on the other hand, if you tend to wear a smart skirt and pantsuits or pencil dresses for work, make sure that you have enough pieces to put together work outfits to get you through each week.
Dress it Up With Accessories
One of the best things about a capsule wardrobe is that whatever you are lacking in variety when it comes to your clothing, you can turn an entire outfit around completely with the right accessories.
For example, a plain dress can be turned into a completely different outfit when you add a designer Gucci belt, and a statement necklace can really brighten up an otherwise plain t-shirt and jeans combination.
Headbands, handbags, shoes, earrings, bracelets, watches, and brooches are all fantastic accessory ideas to add to your capsule wardrobe and give each outfit a new look.
Browse Gucci belts and more online and also see if you can find a range of top-end handbags, shoes, accessories and more to add to your capsule wardrobe.
Hopefully these tips will help you build the capsule wardrobe you’ve been dreaming of!
