A capsule wardrobe is made up of limited collection of compatible clothing pieces that suit each other. They are usually classic pieces that do not go out of style and are often composed of neutral and calm colors or preferred colors. A capsule wardrobe allows you to create a variety of different outfits with a small selection of clothes and great basics that make style easy. Capsule Wardrobes start with good foundational basics and fun pieces to keep your wardrobe functional and fabulous. A seasonal capsule wardrobe is a capsule wardrobe built to fit into the seasons (winter, summer, spring and autumn). Some clothing pieces from the previous season can also be carried over to the next season, for example, some clothing pieces from the spring capsule wardrobe can be carried over to the summer capsule wardrobe, etc., each seasonal capsule wardrobe can also be repeated the next year and maybe slightly updated. Having a capsule wardrobe has a lot of benefits both to the individual and the environment. Here are some key benefits of having/investing in a capsule wardrobe!

  • Saves money: Having a capsule wardrobe helps saves money by allowing you to do more with less. Having the few basic pieces that you can mix and match for your everyday occasions aids in limiting unnecessary spending on clothes.
  • Saves time: Instead of trying on outfit after outfit wondering if it would look good, the capsule wardrobe narrows down your options for you. With fewer options to choose from, deciding what to wear wouldn’t be so difficult and time consuming.
  • Sustainability: Having a capsule wardrobe is a good way to practice sustainable fashion. Choosing to have a capsule wardrobe also means investing in quality clothing that can last a long while, this helps to avoid fast fashion and since the pieces are timeless, clothes are not often thrown away and end up in landfill.

How to build your summer capsule wardrobe?

There are a few easy steps to follow when it comes to building your dream summer wardrobe.

Step 1: Declutter! Start by getting rid of clothes you hardly wear and no longer fit, put away clothes you won’t be using for summer e.g., coats, wool scarfs and the lot. Sell what can be sold, giveaway what can be given away and donate what can be donated! You can have a separate box for storing other clothes that would be needed for other seasons.

Step 2: Plan! Start by writing down how you want your wardrobe to look like. Have a palette of your favorite colors that can be mixed and matched, if you love colors, don’t forget that neutrals are essential too! You can also make a mood board. Decide on the number of clothing items (accessories inclusive) you want for the wardrobe (min,25- max,30). Write the amount for each clothing you want e.g., tops- 3, shorts-2, jeans-1, etc. Write a list of clothing items you already have and a list for the ones you have to buy and take yourself shopping! Keep in mind that all items in the capsule wardrobe have to be matchable.

Step 3: Implement! Now that you have a free closet and a plan, its time to act. Arrange your clothes neatly in your closet, to make it more visually pleasing, you can use a color code to arrange the clothes. Enjoy your new and sustainable summer capsule wardrobe!!
