The Rise of Capsule Wardrobes

As the years seem to disappear, many seek to keep up with many fashion trends that are continuously changing. To have a successful wardrobe that’ll transcend time, you must have some of the proven clothing staples that never seem to age. To successfully achieve timeless fashion that transcends time, one should own a time capsule Wardrobe.

What is a Time Capsule Wardrobe?

A Capsule Wardrobe is a series of attire that is guaranteed to last a very long time. No matter what period of time we’re in, these clothes will continuously complement each other and any new addition you may add over the years. Typically, you wear a capsule wardrobe for three months before updating it for the following season. Limiting your shopping to a specific quantity of garments every season allows you to save money! When an item is worn or no longer fits properly, look for a replacement. While the number of items varies depending on the source, it is advised that your capsule wardrobe comprises 25-50 pieces of apparel, shoes, and accessories. The goal is to have a staple or timeless pieces without having too many clothes. To achieve this, a complete capsule wardrobe might cost about $500-$1000. This may sound like a lot of money that many people may not have, however, you will have various timeless clothing and apparel that you will wear every day. This emphasizes the importance of quality over quantity.

Why should you have a Capsule Wardrobe?

Having a Capsule Wardrobe saves you a lot of time trying to find the perfect coordinated attire for any event. As you discover your style and what works well for you, you become more experience in buying apparel. Furthermore, a capsule wardrobe is a sustainable way to approach your closet. You mostly own timeless pieces that you will wear for years, which won’t go out of style. Since you don’t have many clothes, you wear every single piece you own, so no clothing is going to waste. People who choose to have a capsule wardrobe also often invest in quality pieces that last long and avoid fast fashion, which is a very wasteful industry. To sum up, and most importantly, you save money. When you have a capsule wardrobe, you do not have to go shopping often because your clothing pieces are versatile. This means you wear them multiple times, and you do not buy pieces that you will not end up wearing regularly.

How to start your own capsule wardrobe

The first step is to take a long, hard look at what you already have and remove what you don’t need. We don’t mean simply opening it and flipping through the hangers. Meaning that you should take everything out of your closet and then decide whether or not to put it back in.
