A capsule wardrobe …where to start? The goal of a capsule wardrobe is to simplify your clothing choices, reduce clutter, and promote sustainability by investing in better quality, versatile pieces that can be worn for years to come.

With these simple steps, you’ll create a capsule wardrobe.

Declutter

First, you’ll need to declutter. Start by clearing out your wardrobe and getting rid of any items that you no longer wear or no longer fit, this will help you identify the pieces in your wardrobe you truly love and wear. At this stage, it’s important to be tough, and this is often the most difficult step. Bring out your inner Marie Kondo, only keeping items that bring you joy.

Keeping it Neutral

Creating a capsule wardrobe is easier if you stick to a neutral tone base. Such as black, beige, navy, creams, white etc. This will make it easier to mix and match pieces to maximise the number of outfits you can create.

The Importance of High Quality

It’s important to also invest in some high-quality pieces. These quality pieces will last for years so choose quality staples like knitwear and blazers, then you can spend less on the more fashion seasonal pieces so you can still update your wardrobe year on year along with the trends. Doing this not only promotes sustainability but saves money in the long term.

What’s Next

You’ve done the hard part, now what pieces to include? Keep it simple. Choose items that can be dressed up or down and can be worn for a variety of occasions. For example. a simple black dress can be dressed up with heels and jewellery for a formal event or dressed down with trainers for a casual outing. So the versatile items you need to include should be trench coat, jeans, blazer, t-shirts, knitwear (preferably a cardigan as this can also double up as a light jacket) simple classic dress, and staple classic trousers. Aim for 10 – 20 pieces for your capsule wardrobe.

Once you’ve establishes your basic pieces, you can now mix and match. Creating a variety of outfits. Experiment with different combinations to create new looks without having to buy new clothes.
