Creating A Capsule Wardrobe
When building a capsule wardrobe, it’s important to keep in mind that it should be tailored to your unique needs and preferences. You want to create a collection of clothes that make you feel confident and comfortable, without overwhelming you with too many options. When it comes to color, consider selecting a few neutral hues, like black, white, and gray, that can be easily mixed and matched with brighter shades. As for style, focus on selecting versatile pieces that can be dressed up or down, such as a classic blazer or a comfortable pair of jeans. With a little bit of planning and intentional shopping, you can create a capsule wardrobe that simplifies your life and helps you feel great every day.
Mix And Match Clothing Colours
When planning your capsule wardrobe, it’s essential to start by selecting a limited palette of colours. This makes it easier to mix and match your outfits. Ideally, you should choose under eight options that complement your skin tone. You can opt for a full-colour analysis to determine which colours work best for you. However, if you’re looking for some universal options that suit everyone, consider shades like charcoal, navy, and other neutral hues. These versatile colours can be easily mixed and matched and will ensure that you feel comfortable and confident in your outfits. Remember, the goal is to simplify your wardrobe and make getting dressed each day a breeze.

Mix And Match Styles
When it comes to style, it’s important to consider all the different activities you engage in on a weekly basis. To help you pinpoint what you should have in your wardrobe, ask yourself the following questions:
– What items do you currently enjoy wearing and why?
– What do you typically wear to work?
– What clothes do you need for your hobbies or leisure activities?
– Where do you tend to go on vacation, and what clothes do you need for that?
– Do you need clothes that are kid-friendly?
– Are there any special events that you attend each year?
– What is the climate like where you live, and how do you need your clothes to protect you?
– Do you experience different seasons? If so, how many capsule wardrobes do you need?
– What style do you admire?
– What is your authentic style?
– Is there a middle ground between the two, and does it meet your practical needs?
– How long does it take you to get ready?
– How do your clothes make you feel?
– How do you want to feel?
– What types of clothes do you need? Exercise, work, formal, etc. or a variety of different styles?
– What clothes make you feel good and why?
– What clothes feel comfortable and why?
– What do you buy and never wear, and why?
– What do you wear over and over again, and why?
– Are there any fabrics that you find uncomfortable?
– Do you prefer ethical brands?
