Capsule Wardrobe

The concept of capsule wardrobe was created at the 1970’s by the British Susie Faux. However, it took great proportions after the choice of an American blogger to pick a limited quantity of pieces of clothes from her closet to use and make a range of combinations during a few months. 

The conjecture of the concept is to take advantage of all versatile pieces of clothes from your wardrobe, to discover new combinations and styles, to optimize your time, and, the main objective, to economize.

You can make a bet on creativity and on references to put up your capsule wardrobe and your new looks.
