Hello, world! How’s life?
Capsule wardrobes are DA BOMB! I tried it once, but ultimately failed. Ah well…
But just because I failed, doesn’t mean you will!
“What is a capsule wardrobe?”
Capsule wardrobe is a term coined by Susie Faux, the owner of a London boutique called “Wardrobe” in the 1970s. According to Faux, a capsule wardrobe is a collection of a few essential items of clothing that don’t go out of fashion such as skirts, trousers, and coats, which can then be augmented with seasonal pieces. This idea was popularised by American designer Donna Karan, who, in 1985, released an influential capsule collection of seven interchangeable work-wear pieces. –Wikipedia
Pretty snazzy, eh?
So, capsule wardrobes were basically invented to stop people
like me from hoarding clothes that he/she doesn’t need. Yeah… basically…
The Amateur Minimalist’s Guide To Capsule Wardrobing
After a bit of researching, I found that the average capsule wardrobe should include:
• 5 shirts
• 2 pairs of pants
• 1 dress
• 2 pairs of shoes.
(Essential things like undergarments and socks don’t count)
To give you more of an idea, this is what my capsule wardrobe would be like:
• 2 long-sleeved tees, and 3 short
• 2 pairs of leggings
• 1 black t-shirt dress
• 1 pair of Chacos™ and a pair of High-Tops
I hope that gave you an idea of what your capsule wardrobe would look like!!
Remember, capsule wardrobing isn’t for everyone! And neither is minimalism!!
