Building a capsule wardrobe saves you money 

By  |  0 Comments

Often our wardrobes can look like an overwhelming mix of old and new clothes from all seasons. Often, we keep items that we no longer wear, don’t fit or have gone out of fashion, taking up valuable space within your wardrobe. Not only this but, keeping your wardrobe in a muddled state can make it extremely hard to find the outfit you need for the day ahead. This will result in you continuing to wear the same items time and time again. 

Building a capsule wardrobe offers you a compact collection of quality clothes designed to suit any occasion. The purpose of a capsule wardrobe is to offer many outfit options from a select few items. Subsequently, keeping your wardrobe organised and your outfits fresh. Following this process will help you minimise unnecessary spending and only go shopping when a piece needs to be replaced

The basics 

There is no hard and fast rule for creating a capsule wardrobe – how you build it is up to you. Once you start to collect your pieces, they will all start to make sense. However, if you need some help to start – read on. 

Firstly, throw away any items you will never wear again. The general rule is – if you haven’t worn a piece of clothing in the last 6 months, you should throw it away. So, be ruthless and only keep the pieces you know you need. 

Secondly, ensure the clothes you have in your collection are ones you love on your body. Too often we spend money on clothes that are a quick fix, but they don’t make us feel good. So, buying clothes you love and that you will wear again is essential. 

Finally, buy clothes that complement one another. By trying different outfit combinations and seeing which pieces work together ensures you build a collection that works. Most importantly, a collection you will wear. 

Choose quality 

A capsule wardrobe is all about longevity, choosing pieces that will stand the test of time. Doing this stops unnecessary spending and having to refresh your wardrobe regularly. 

Often, people get deterred from buying quality clothes as they are a financial outlay in the short term. However, they are sure to save you money the longer you keep them. 

Choosing clothing made from quality products ensure that they stay in your wardrobe for a long period and stops you from paying extra for quick fixes. Instead, you have a collection of stunning, quality pieces that will save you money – what’s not to love!
