Most of us probably don’t have our dream wardrobes.By dream wardrobe I don’t mean designer wear.In fact, some of us probably are actively frustrated by our clothes on a daily basis.My closet is full of stuff I genuinely never wore, and didn’t even go together.My style had zero cohesion, which meant putting an outfit together was always a task, time consuming and frustrating at times.I always ended up relying on the same boring basics.In order to build a wardrobe you love, get rid of any clothes that don’t make you feel great.
So this season I’ve created my summer wardrobe capsule.
If you’re not familiar with a “capsule wardrobe”, it is a set number of clothes that can mix and match with one another to create many outfits.
To start a capsule wardrobe, pull everything out of your closet so that all you see are the walls of your closet. Set everything from your closet aside for now. If you use a clothes rack, take everything off the rack and set it all aside. Without having anything in your closet, you can easily put together your capsule!
So here are few things to keep in mind.
Discover your body type-Knowing your body type will help you identify items that will be the most flattering to your shape, not the Instagrammer you follow.
Get the Basics right-Without staple, basic items, it’s impossible to create a wardrobe with a solid foundation.Make sure you have things like a pair of black pants, versatile tanks, and basic blouses to serve as your staples, and then focus on acquiring a few patterned items and statement pieces. That way you’ll be able to actually build outfits.
