There’s never been a better time to curate a capsule wardrobe
An edit of versatile staples can help you save time, de-stress and feel more stylish. Sounds good?
Here are the tips, and classic pieces to get you started
With much of our life still based at home, sharp suits and heels have been pushed to the back of the wardrobe, and new-season statement pieces no longer have the appeal they once had.
Nowadays, we’re taking a more mindful approach, reaching for clothes that not only arm us for our multi-tasking days, but also cocoon us in comfort. Add to this a WFH lifestyle, where time and space are in short supply, and it’s no wonder that the capsule wardrobe has become such a talking point.
A capsule wardrobe is a curated edit of timeless staples you can mix-and-match for pared-back outfits. Experts suggest anything from 20 to 50 pieces, but it’s primarily focused on clothes that suit you and you can be easily rotated.
Get it right and a capsule wardrobe can guarantee failsafe formulas for every morning. It can alleviate ‘decision fatigue’, give you time back in your day and help you feel effortlessly put-together. With spring-clean season upon us, there’s never been a better time streamline your wardrobe.
Getting started; 5 tips for distilling and defining your capsule pieces
- Jot down your actual lifestyle, what you do and how you dress in an average week.
- Start pulling the foundation pieces you wear most often - probably a mix of elevated and everyday. Also an edit of less frequently worn clothes that you love.
- Check you have mostly neutral shades, with some serotonin-boosting brights, that can cover daily life, work and occasions.
- With what’s left over, establish what you are happy to sell or donate. Items you’re emotionally attached to but don’t wear, store in another space.
- Collate your new wardrobe and test it over a regular week. If any pieces are missing or need updating you can adapt from there.
