There's a lot of information out there about the trendy concept of "capsule wardrobes." A capsule wardrobe is a small but mighty wardrobe that is all about YOU. It consists of clothing that you wear all the time. Literally. Nearly endless combinations, but all with the same set number of clothes.
Remember when I said there's a lot of information out there? Well, I meant it. There's a lot of information and some of it is conflicting. I'll let you in on a secret though: you can make up your own rules. Some say a capsule wardrobe is a COMPLETE wardrobe of 37 pieces, some say it's an essential staple wardrobe of 19 pieces. It can be either of those, or anything in between. It needs to be a complete collection of clothing that you can mix and match at your discretion, but it can include anything. 5 dresses, 3 chinos, 2 pairs of jeans, 5 pairs of shoes, 9 tops, and 2 hats. Or 1 hat, 3 dresses, 5 pairs of jeans, 3 coats, and 3 pairs of shoes. It's up to you! The only rule is that it represents YOUR style. You hate the color of a dress? Not your style. The cut of the jeans is a little too loose? Not your style. You think the pattern of a shirt isn't flattering? Not your style!
The force behind the popularity of a capsule wardrobe is simplicity. I can tell you from personal experience that having a large wardrobe, with a mixture of your favorite pieces and pieces that you wear once a year can be...overwhelming. You either spend an hour putting together your outfit, or you wear the same thing every day. But having a small-to-medium mixture of pieces that work together in various combinations....think of the time and energy saved!
