I’ve been reading a few blogs recently about bloggers who started doing a capsule wardrobe. The idea is intriguing. Especially since I am one of those people who have lots of clothes but “nothing” to wear. I feel like a capsule wardrobe is the answer to my problem. Fewer but more versatile pieces. Less “medium” pieces that either don’t go with a lot or that I will never have the occasion to wear very often.
I think this season I will start my wardrobe capsule and start collecting what I need little by little so that by next fall/winter season I will have it ready to go. Many people have a capsule for each season. I will try this out but maybe combining fall/winter and spring/summer since those seasons have so many clothes in common. (But that also defeats the purpose of only having a “set number” of items in your closet). If you want to know more about what a capsule wardrobe is and how to start one, here are a couple of links.
I’ll start another post showing the process I go through and some of the pieces I kept. I still haven’t decided on the number of pieces I’m going to have in my closet, 37 seems like an awfully small number. Hopefully by the end of this though, I will have a fairly workable closet with classic pieces I can use over and over again.
