But what is - a capsule wardrobe?
A capsule wardrobe is a go-to range of basics that mix together to make looking stylish, each and every day easier, quicker and more cost-effective.
If this is a topic of interest to you, you are in the right place. I highly recommend reading this comprehensive how to style book; The Curated Closet: A Simple System for Discovering Your Personal Style and Building Your Dream Wardrobe by Anuschka Rees.


Back tracking - so where did the concept come from?
The creator of the capsule wardrobe concept is Susie Faux, who in the 70's owned a London store, named 'Wardrobe'. 
She cleverly conceptualized the term and explained it was a selection of essential items, the aim is to create a timeless range of clothes that are not trend based, that is that don't go out of fashion. Source: Wikipedia
Proving the timeless nature of the capsule wardrobe technique and concept; Wardrobe: Develop Your Style and Confidence by Susie Faux which she wrote in the1988.

What are the benefits of a capsule wardrobe? 

How can a capsule wardrobe work for you?
The facts:

✔️Saves you time

Having a lot of options isn't good, especially when you are busy.
Make choosing your outfit each day, effortless. Through carefully selecting your capsule wardrobe with pieces that are interchangeable you won't then waste time deciding what to wear as every piece you have works with each other.
Move on from your old chaotic mornings and embrace a calmer and more stylish you. 


✔️Saves you money

Most of us, admit it or not are consumers, we love to shop, whether that be online, high street or in designer boutiques.
Don't you wish that the precious money you are spending, was worth spending?
Creating a capsule wardrobe means that you know what you need, that you are buying something to fill a gap, serve a purpose and ultimately an item that is going to get used - frequently. 
A capsule wardrobe will encourage you to be creative with what you already have, which will save you money from buying something new. 


✔️Empowers your style

A capsule wardrobe overhaul can steer you in the right direction to empowering your style. You will know what you like, you will feel confident in your styling, this will build confidence and inevitably create life change opportunities.
Look good + Feel good = Success and Happiness

Look good + Feel good = Confidence & Creates positive energy


✔️Enhances your sense of self

Styling yourself right can ignite a spark, and help you believe in yourself.
This is a key way to build confidence and achieve your dreams and goals. Whether its a job interview, an important meeting or running errands.
Looking the part and feeling the part has a knock effect in the flow of positivity - make the magic happen - because you feel good about yourself.
