I’m sure you’ve heard the phrase but do you know what a capsule wardrobe really is? I talk about my capsule wardrobe on here all the time but I’m not sure I’ve ever dedicated a post to explaining what is a capsule wardrobe.
Simply put a capsule wardrobe is a minimal wardrobe made up of versatile pieces
The term capsule wardrobe was coined by London boutique own Susie Faux back in the 1970s to refer to a collection of essential pieces which would not go out of fashion and therefore could be worn for years to come. The idea and definition of capsule wardrobes has grown and gained popularity since then but the core principle of timeless pieces remains. A capsule wardrobe is a small wardrobe made up of timeless, versatile, interchangeable pieces which you love to wear.
Capsule wardrobes are for anyone:
I’ve had a capsule wardrobe of some sort for over 18months and I have looked back. For me creating a capsule wardrobe was about ending my unhealthy relationship with shopping. I had a crazy number of clothes in my wardrobe, many of which I never wore and I was spending far too much on fashion. Something had to change. I created my capsule wardrobe to simplify my wardrobe, and it ended up simplifying my life. Capsule wardrobes mean less stress in the morning and make getting dressed quick and easy. With no more ‘I have nothing to wear’ moments my time was freed up to focus on what really matters. Not only did it simplify my life it has saved me money and enabled me to regain control of my shopping habits.
Capsule Wardrobes represent freedom:
