Over the year, I’ve been slowly culling my wardrobe- getting rid of things I never wear and adding in more versatile pieces. I’ve been following the blog Into Mind for a little while now and I find her posts really helpful if you’re looking to streamline your closet. A few months ago, she mentioned the blog Un-Fancy, which I now read on a daily basis. Caroline creates a capsule wardrobe for each season with 37 items and shares daily outfits that she’s put together using these items. Her style is chic and achievable, which is what I love the most.
I’ve been thinking about doing my own capsule wardrobe and I’ve finally decided to put one together for fall. It’s my first time doing this and I’m not sure how it’s going to work out. My plan is to do a series of posts on this so later I can look back and see what worked and what didn’t. I often look into my closet and feel like I have nothing to wear, which is simply not true. On top of that, I know that I don’t really need as many clothes as I have because I end up wearing the items I really like over and over again.
I’m hoping this will be a good exercise for me. It might be hard for me to pick 37 items (or whatever number I decide on) and wear only those items, and it may be difficult to completely resist shopping during that period, or maybe it won’t be. I guess these are things that I’ll find out along the way!
My first task was to pull inspiration for this capsule wardrobe, so of course I turned to Pinterest. I noticed that the images that I was pinning featured a lot of black, leather, and knits and the vibe was simple and easygoing. I think that fits my style and my personality. As I get older, I’m drawn to classic pieces with a twist, clean lines and less fuss. Most of all, I want to be completely comfortable and still look polished.
Tell me: Have you ever tried creating a capsule wardrobe?
