Capsule Wardrobe: So You Always Have an Outfit Ready!

Do you feel like you have too many clothes and nothing to wear? If yes, welcome to the club! As fashion trends continue to take a toll on your brain, a capsule wardrobe is a great way to simplify your life.

What Is a Capsule Wardrobe?

A capsule wardrobe is a curated collection of must-have clothes ranging from a classy long sleeve dress to a plain white t-shirt that you can mix and match with one another to create multiple outfits. It also saves your wardrobe from looking like a mess, not to mention you’ll always have attire ready for any occasion.

You Need a Wardrobe Capsule If

  • Your closet is overflowing with clothes you hardly wear.
  • You feel out of style.
  • Getting dressed is a struggle, leaving your bed looking like a mountain of clothes.
  • You have clothes that no longer fit.
  • You have aspirational clothes that you hope to fit into one day.
  • You find yourself repeating the same clothes over and over again.
  • A shopping spree is getting the best of you.
  • Most importantly, you have nothing to wear!

Tips for Creating a Capsule Wardrobe 

Now that you know what a capsule wardrobe is and whether you should get one or not, let’s get into how you can create one!

Flattering to Your Body

Everyone is built differently, so it’s important to find clothes that accentuate your best features. And if you’re unsure which style works best for you, you can always look up which body shape you fit into and work your way up. In the meantime, keeping your skin tone in mind can also help you choose the right colours and patterns.

Try Timeless Styles

If you are talking about ever-green fashion, who can be a better inspiration than Rachel Green, aka Jennifer Aniston? Besides heartfelt chuckles and relatable situations, the Friends sitcom also embodies ever-green fashion. The outfits worn by Rachel are still a statement today. Be it ripped jeans & cami top, plaid skirt, dungarees, crop top with boy shorts, oversize t-shirt, olive green square neck dress, jock jacket; you name it!

Layer It to Wear it

Layering is a lifesaver when you want to give your clothes a fresh look. It also allows you to take off or add on clothing as the temperature changes throughout the day. Meanwhile, a good layering piece can be a cardigan, denim jacket, bomber jacket, blazer, etc.

Must-Have Clothes

Other than your personal preferences, there are certain essential clothes that every capsule wardrobe should have:

  1. Plain white/black tee – It goes with everything!
  2. Pair of fitted jeans – Dark wash or black always looks good
  3. Little black dress – Perfect for any occasion
  4. Long sleeve dress – Saves you on days you don’t feel like waxing.
  5. Cardigan or light sweater – Great for layering.
  6. Denim jacket – Never goes out of style.
  7. Blazer – A versatile article for layering or dressing up.
  8. Leather Jacket – For a badass look.
  9. Wrap Dress – It’s seamless and works on all body shapes.
  10. Denim Shorts – You can never go wrong with this one.
  11. Tank/Cami Top – Does this even need an explanation?
  12. Baggy Jeans – For comfort purposes.

The list is never-ending, but your outfit problems are! Follow these essential tips, and you’ll never run out of clothes to wear.
