This is my first real attempt at trying a capsule wardrobe. I tried to do it for this past winter, but I started late and started with an almost clean palette which made it difficult to vary my outfits; I also didn’t want to spend too much money for a season that was on its way out, so this spring I’ll be building my warm weather wardrobe.
I first looked for inspiration and made lists of things I knew I would need, things that were trending, and things that I already had that worked for the next season. Above are some pics I took inspiration from. If you’re looking to start a capsule wardrobe check out Un-Fancy and Into-Mind for worksheets and other great ideas.
I’m not going to be super strict with this guideline that I made for myself because I think it just stresses me out too much. I was vague in my descriptions of what I wanted so that I wouldn’t buy something just because it matched my exact description of the piece of clothing. Before I go shopping, I look over the list or bring a copy of my list with me so that I don’t buy anything too trendy or don’t need.
