The expression capsule wardrobe refers to a minimalist wardrobe, composed of timeless pieces of clothing, shoes and accessories in neutral colors: white, black, beige, navy blue.
These are pieces that are easy to combine and wear.
Starting a capsule wardrobe allows you to rethink your clothing consumption. It is estimated that 700,000 tons of clothes are produced each year in France, that is 22 kilos per second.
A capsule wardrobe is also a way to save time on a daily basis, to save money, and to consume more ethically because we are in a logic of sustainable development.
How to build a capsule wardrobe?
1st step: understand and know your morphology, your colors, your clothing style. I am here to help you in this process, do not hesitate to contact me!
2nd step: sort your wardrobe.The sorting stage can be distressing but it is essential to identify the clothes that make us look good and the superfluous ones, those that we have kept “just in case” for years, the damaged ones, those that we never wear.
Here again, don’t panic, I’m here to help you if you need it!
The idea is to keep only the pieces that look like us, that we enjoy wearing.
This will define your style base.
For the others: we give to associations or we resell the pieces in good condition that do not fit us anymore, that we do not wear.
Recycle damaged clothes into rags.
To avoid frustration, allow yourself a little “crack” for a purchase of bright colors or for THE trendy piece. These pieces will be your style variation.
Starting a capsule wardrobe gives you a framework to create or confirm your personal style and to take stock of your buying habits without harming the planet. A virtuous circle in a way!
