If you have trouble deciding what to wear on a daily basis, or find the thought of your current wardrobe overwhelming, then a capsule wardrobe just might be what you need. A capsule wardrobe is a well thought out collection of garments. The idea is to build a collection of classic and timeless pieces. This way you will never be out of style!
1. Determine Your Style

Before you start building your capsule wardrobe, think about your fashion style. Are you corporate, casual, or bohemian? When you’ve decided upon this, you can start thinking about the types of items that will primarily make up your capsule wardrobe. If you are more corporate, then you may have more tailored items such as collared shirts and suits. Your capsule wardrobe should be a reflection of your personal style.
2. Cull Your Current Wardrobe

This is an important part of creating a capsule wardrobe. Dispose of any ill fitting, unworn, and out of date items. It’s no use keeping items that you never wear. Once you get rid of all the “noise” you can start focusing on the foundations of your wardrobe.
3. Have the Basics Covered

A good capsule wardrobe should contain all the essentials. These include well fitting shirts, t-shirts, trousers, A-line skirts, jeans, and a black dress. Also look for shoes in classic shapes that can be worn with all of your outfits. Basics are great because they never go out of style and they are the starting point for many outfits.
