Capsule wardrobes are a style solution which solves many common issues women have with their fashion style and wardrobe organization.
A capsule wardrobeprovides you with time, each morning when you get dressed you have a simplified selection of clothes. You create outfits quickly with ease. A capsule wardrobe is a carefully selection range of clothes that are chosen to serve a purpose and easily be mix and match. This means all your clothes go together to create outfits, no more guessing what works and what doesn't.
I have been the capsule wardrobe solution for 8 years now. It works better than you will expect, you can reuse the same information and solution each season and year after year.
➤ Does getting dressed taking longer than it should? I get it, when I started a capsule wardrobe it was to save 'time'. Time is the one thing you can't buy. I was spending more thinking what to wear than I had minutes to spare. I would grab clothes at random and then feel awkward in my outfit all day. Miss matched, and uncomfortable no way to spend your day.
➤ Does your wardrobe need a clean out? Get your wardrobe organized, remove clutter and know what you need in your wardrobe. I was in disbelief how easy it could be when I followed the capsule wardrobe formula. My wardrobe had been TOO BIG a problem to tackle, overwhelming, that changed for good.
➤ Do you buy on a whim and regret purchases (or worse never were clothes)? I felt annoyed and confused with new purchases. Sometimes I didn't wear clothes, new and second hand they would hang in my wardrobe, I could understand why they weren't quite right. That all makes sense with the capsule wardrobe formula.
➤ Is your wardrobe a mixed, mismatching, chaos and overflowing mess? Shopping for more didn't magically solve all my wardrobe issues. All it did was overwhelm my already full wardrobe. I wasn't buying basics, I wasn't buying clothes to fill a gap, I didn't actually have what I needed. My wardrobe was full, messy and didn't have what I needed day to day.
➤ Who is a capsule wardrobe for? The capsule wardrobe solution works for people who LOVE clothes and those who would rather be dong something else.
➤ Why care about style? Ultimately we need to wear clothes every day and feel good in what you are wearing is the same for all women. Style is important to feeling good about ourselves - it's something we can control in our life. Even if you aren't a fashion loving person after you start a capsule wardrobe you will enjoy getting dressed.
How to start a capsule wardrobe
1. Reduce: Reducing the number of clothes in your wardrobe and drawers is life-changing. But... how do you do this reduce how many clothes you have? First and foremost, you get started. Starting can be one of the hardest part. Tackle this task but by bit. Removing and emptying all your drawers, hanging space. Start by clearing what doesn't fit, create a pile for mending, store clothes that are out of season, donate or gift clothes and sell clothes that might be of value.
2. Establish: With no clear plan of what clothes you need in your wardrobe you will always struggle to create outfits you love.A capsule wardrobe is a way tell you what you need in your wardrobe for you. Everyone is different and the wardrobe you build will be specific to you and your needs.
3. Build: Know what fashion essentials you need in your wardrobe is how you learn how to build a wardrobe full sustainable style you love. This step will come but first...

Do every girl and woman dream of clothes?I love clothes, fashion, accessories, shoes - I literally fantasise about a wardrobe, a walk-in massive wardrobe. Inside is every style, historical and or otherwise.Every basic essential, pair of jeans, one-off, every piece of clothing I have ever owned.
This would require a tremendous amount of care and services, of course, to look after everything I have ever owned.
Then reality kicks in. Time? I have none.
Creating a capsule wardrobe is all I have time for? Economical, more environmental, less stress and confusion and simplifying garment care.

"A truly amazing wardrobe begins with a smart supply of sustainable key fashion basics" OwnMuse
I just read this by Australia's most reliable retailer. With an impressive customer care focus, as well as having a sustainability team who have listed 'The Iconic' sustainability annual report. A PDF all about their sustainability strategy. High quality 'The Iconic' - way to go.
Another featured retailer below is NET Sustain. I actually worked at NET (aka Net-A-Porter as a graphic design for nearly 4 years. While living in London. A while ago now. Loyalties run deep, I shop from the site every few months. Anything new I tend to shop on Net-A-Porter or the above The Iconic.
I also buy some fashion from second-hand stores or recycled materials designers when I come across them. I find that stuff finds you, it's tricky the other way around.
I really haven't bought much lately. There are three Net-a-porter items from the below sustainable capsule wardrobe items currently in my shopping cart. That's the trouble with writing this stuff. It is what I would buy if I had endless money. Which I don't so I am going to have to decide quickly before they sell out?
