Tis the season for a wardrobe cleanout. But you may want to take it a step further, and cultivate a closet of only the essentials! Here’s how you can start a capsule wardrobe for the everyday.


Create a Capsule Wardrobe

Ever heard of a capsule wardrobe? The idea goes that by cultivating a closet of only a select number of essential pieces, all of which match together, you’ll be able to cut out all the hassle and decision-making of getting dressed each morning. You’ll also eliminate the waste that comes from having a closet so stuffed you never even know what your options are.

The step-by-step process of creating a capsule wardrobe is super easy. First you have to think about your personal style and the clothes you actually wear day to day! If you live in a warmer climate, there’s no need for a drawer full of sweaters—your one or two favorites will do.

Staples of a capsule wardrobe include a few pairs of trousers, a skirt, dresses for formal and casual occasions, and a selection of tops from T-shirts to blouses. Throw a coat in there too and you’ll be surprised to find that you’re set! Start getting rid of stress today.
