When looking to create your capsule wardrobe for 2021, it is best to stick to under seven colours. When starting, it is much easier to put together an outfit in the morning if you have a limited selection of colours to choose from. Lots of colours mean lots of choices which can cause decision fatigue. Start with three or four canvas colours which are muted tones. Royal blue, charcoal, ivory, stone and blood red are effective options that suit all skin tones. Next, if you want more colour, choose two or three paint shades to highlight your capsule wardrobe. The paint shades can be in any colour, but preferably select shades that suit you.

Next, consider your lifestyle and what you do on a weekly basis. Do you need clothes you can wash easily? Do your clothes need to protect you in some way? Look smart? Keep you warm or cool?

Finally, if there is an area of your body you do not like, do not swamp it in something baggy. The best thing you can do is to skim over that area while emphasizing a place you do like. If you are trying to hide an area that is heavier on your body, then choose plain, dark shades in fabric. Use patterns, bright colours and detailing in places you do like. This way, you will draw the eye away from the part of your body you want to hide.

Capsule Closet Success testimonials

'When you join the membership it isn't generic it is tailored to your needs. Michelle considers each individual person and provides advice and guidance based on their needs. I have learnt so much since I joined I feel like I could sit an exam on it now! Honestly, without a doubt if you feel like you are lost with what to wear, you don't know what suits your body shape or your shape has changed, you've lost confidence, you're starting a new job, or you want to minimise your wardrobe, Michelle's membership is without a doubt for you. You can not get better for the price, I have looked!'
I joined Michelle's facebook "capsule wardrobe challenge" in June 2020. I loved her approach of starting off with a concept of what colours and styles you were attracted to, followed by what your lifestyle required functionally. It helped me assess my existing wardrobe with a checklist in mind instead of feeling overwhelmed and indecisive. I found the video format and weekly check-ins easy to follow and explained each stage of building a capsule well. She has been quick to answer any queries I have and to offer her professional stylist's opinion with a gentle manner. I am most grateful for Michelle's overarching aim to help her clients "find their happy place". This membership is about being comfortable in your own skin, not about being super fashionable, and that is exactly what I needed. Thank you for helping me find my confidence again. 😊
There is no doubt in my mind that having a personal stylist online is worth the investment. In fact, at the end of the day I will spend considerably less while looking and feeling so much better. Why? Because I will never again mindlessly spend and spend and spend on clothes that just aren’t right for me and that don’t make me happy. I think we all dream of that wardrobe that makes us happy and confident, but it is so easy to just give up and just wear something. I know I did. And that is just plain crazy because I love clothes! I have always been attracted to styles that I lacked the confidence to try out. Now, with the help and guidance of Michelle, I can finally explore those styles with confidence knowing that whenever I run an item by Michelle, she will give me her honest feedback on whether or not it will fit with my colors and with how I want to look and feel. In short: Michelle’s advice really is priceless. I feel an A-lister in the garments I have purchased since becoming a member! Pssst: One secret, you don’t have to become a minimalist if you don’t want to. Michelle is not about legalistic minalism, she is all about you finding out what works for you and that – along with her very deep knowledge of style – is why I think her membership works for me when in the past nothing else has.
