Gain More With Less
So you are wondering how ‘less is more’ can apply to a capsule wardrobe? You have come to the right place. A capsule wardrobe means living happily with less, but it does not mean that you can not enjoy your clothes. Read on, and I will explain.
What Is A Capsule Wardrobe?
A capsule Wardrobe is the definition of ‘less is more’. Essentially, instead of trying out more and more things to make you look and feel great, you stick to a few, well-selected, intentional items of good quality. For example, if you have six pairs of leggings in black, unless you do something every day that requires black leggings, you unlikely need them all.
The first part of creating a capsule wardrobe is about choosing what styles and colours you will include. If you are not sure, it might be worth getting a colour analysis. If you already know what colours suit you, then look at your current wardrobe and see if there is a theme that runs through it. Choose a selection of colours to base your wardrobe on, but try to choose no more than around seven. The more colours you have, the harder it is to put an outfit together. With fewer colours, the easier it is to mix and match outfits.
Next, consider how many of every item you need. When decluttering your wardrobe and removing items you have repeats of, choose the ones that fit the best, are the newest and the better quality. Look at what you do every week and think about what clothes you need to meet those activities.
Finally, buy intentionally. Less really is more. The less you have, the easier it will be to create outfits in the morning. Whenever you search for an item to add to your well-intentioned wardrobe, be very selective about what you add. Choose quality over quantity every time. A few intentional, quality pieces that work for you and your lifestyle are much better than lots of options that sort of work but also don’t last.
A capsule wardrobe is the clothing version of ‘less is more’. It does not have to be so restricted that you have nothing to wear, just limited to the best of what you need and love. A capsule wardrobe is about finding your happy place wherever that may be.
