Spent all your money over the holidays? When the start of the year stretches a bit long in front of you, and your wardrobe leaves you with no inspiration, what is a fashion-loving girl to do? Find a budget capsule wardrobe, of course! You don’t need to overhaul your entire closet, but adding a few affordable pieces that you can mix and match will help stretch your options. A capsule wardrobe is a thoughtfully assembled selection of clothing that you’ll want to wear on repeat. When everything is good quality and works together seamlessly, getting dressed is a breeze!
How to build a capsule wardrobe?
DO spring clean your closet completely so you know exactly what you have and what you need.
DO look at your lifestyle – if you’re a homebody who doesn’t go out every weekend, you don’t need a closet full of cocktail dresses.
DON’T throw away things just because they’re missing a button or have a stuck zip – get them repaired.
DO consider your personal style, as that will inform the basics you choose.
DO add in a few interesting prints and textures, like animal print or sequins.
DO stick to the “one in, one out” rule when spring cleaning and shopping.
DON’T buy something that doesn’t fit properly and doesn’t go with at least four other pieces in your wardrobe.
DO spruce up your actual closet with proper hangers – no wire hangers allowed! – cedar blocks for freshness and scented drawer liners.
