What’s a capsule wardrobe ?
A capsule wardrobe is a mini-collection of versatile clothes, bags and shoes that can easily be mixed & matched to create a lot of different outfits.
A capsule wardrobe is seasonal and provides you with enough combinations to keep you going for at least 3 months, so basically a whole season worth of clothes !
People turn to capsule wardrobes for different reasons :
As a lot of people know now, the fashion industry is an ecological disaster. A big part of that is over consumption. With some brands launching up to 60 mini collections per year and people buying stuff that will sleep in their wardrobe without even being worn once sometimes. We all have been guilty of shopping excess, going out of stores with way too many bags of disposable clothing and shoes. But a capsule wardrobe allows you to only select few pieces of apparel, shoes and bags per season and to not shop at all in between season. And when you do shop you have to think thoughtfully about what you buy : if you will love this piece for years, if it will be a good asset to your capsule wardrobe, if you will be able to wear it on multiple occasions …
Too many questions for just a quick shopping fix !
Absolutely, you can forget about the « I have nothing to wear feeling ». Dressing in the morning become quite fun.
Some days you can feel adventurous and experiment with all the options your capsule wardrobe offers you. Some day when you feel quite lazy or you are just in a rush and you can just pick a top and a bottom with close eyes, you know that they will match style and color-wise. To all the busy mamas out there that have to take care to dress other people, this one is for you 😉
To summarize you get more with buying less ! So ready to say goodbye to fast fashion ? We know we are 🙂
