2018 Wardrobe Mission

January 18, 2018

Jen from The Sustainable edit shares her wardrobe mission for the year ahead

I was reading Lee from Style Bee’s 2018 closet mission over the weekend and it got me thinking about my own style goals for the year ahead. This isn’t the first time I’ve set myself a wardrobe mission. Back in 2016 when I was exploring the whole capsule wardrobe concept I set myself some style objectives. In fact looking back over that post today has shown me just how far I’ve come. And I can proudly say I’ve achieved most of the objectives I set. But that doesn’t mean that there isn’t lots left to explore and goals to achieve.

My Current Wardrobe

Before I share my wardrobe mission for 2018 I thought it would be a good idea to check in where I am with my current wardrobe.

Wardrobe Mission 2018

I wanted to keep my mission short and sweet with only a few things to be working on over the year. Hopefully, this will help give me some focus when planning my wardrobes and I’ll be able to check in with you to let you know how I’m getting on.

Do any of you have a wardrobe mission this year?

  1. Such a helpful post. I’ve been slowly but surely whittling down my wardrobe and will continue to do so this year, until I have a capsule I can interchange in seasons. Hopefully I can also improve on buying from sustainable and ethical brands, and best of luck with your goals too! x

      Best of luck whittling down your wardrobe I know it can be a tough process but trust me it’s worth it in the end x

    I just found your blog on Pinterest and I love it! I don’t have a wardrobe mission yet, but I recently started a capsule wardrobe. I have been using the Stylebook app and it’s helped me a lot. I use the calendar on it to keep track of what I wore and my cost per wear (because I’m nerdy like that haha). I’m trying to only wear clothes that I LOVE, so maybe that’s my mission for the year, to find clothes that I love and feel good in. Anyway, thank you for your blog! It’s helped me a lot.

      That app sounds perfect for tracking everything you wear – will have to look into it. Wearing clothes you love sounds like a great wardrobe mission

    I’m planning my first “official” capsule for the coming Spring so i’m super happy to have found your blog! I’m especially committed to shop very little this year and i’m looking forward to see how your wardrobe goals are doing, mine are starting off quite good i think, let’s cross fingers i’ll stay strong! 🙂

    Hi Jen, I’ve just come across your blog and love your style ethic. A capsule wardrobe is a completely foreign idea to me, and yet has a huge appeal. I love charity shopping and have always felt I was doing my bit by way of recycling and now you’ve introduced me to the notion of slow fashion and ethical brands. Thanks, I’ll be back.

    Yeah, I feel my spring and summer clothes weren’t of the best quality so pretty soon I’m going to have to start replacing them. I’m actually looking forward to finding quality pieces rather than just buying stuff because it’s cheap. And by the way, I’m way too lazy to record what I wear, lol! Good for you Jen! Looking forward to seeing your results. xo

    I am loving the capsule wardrobe plan!! I am a senior with way too many clothes!! I have always switched out clothes seasonally 🇨🇦, and tried to buy quality…so I have lots of great items. After reading about the capsule idea, I spent a day culling my collection for 37 pieces for the rest of winter (Jan-March). I love the ease of pulling outfits from this system!!!
    I look forward to putting my spring capsule together. Thanks for the super motivation and ideas!!

    • Jen says:

      Thanks so much for taking the time to comment. Sounds like making the switch to a capsule wardrobe was a great decision for you. Getting dressed every morning becomes so much simpler when you have fewer clothes. Spring capsules are my favourite to put together – love getting ready for the warmer months. I’m sure you’ll enjoy it too. Best of luck with your capsule wardrobe.

    I recently found your blog and really like your ideas! Looking forward to see how you style your new pieces with the old ones and how you get on with your wardrobe missions!
