I Tried A Capsule Wardrobe So You Don't Have To

Capsule wardrobes have become the new minimalistic fashion experiments to try over the past few months. A capsule wardrobe refers to the practice of carefully choosing selected pieces in your closet that never go out of style and are essential to putting together cohesive outfits that make sense for whatever season that is to come. Ideally, your capsule wardrobe should consist of pieces you could wear to any occasion. Depending on season to season, you would add one or two items depending on the weather, but ideally keep you from buying new items of clothing.

Having a capsule wardrobe can be beneficial to you in many ways, it can save you time in your morning routine, keep your closet space tidy and most importantly, can help you keep a more sustainable wardrobe and help you manage your spending habits. Fast fashion has been a top contender in climate change with fashion conglomerates like Forever 21 and H&M pumping out new styles and trends weekly. 

After reading several articles and watching countless videos on capsule wardrobes, I decided to try my own hand at compiling a closet filled with only my most essential pieces that could be versatile and worn everyday. I figured that it would be great for my wallet and my raging online shopping addiction, as well as keep my closet space nice and organized for the upcoming spring season. I also have to note that I am terribly guilty of spending way too long each morning putting on and trying various outfit combinations to figure out what I actually want to wear for the day. On that note, here are the pieces I chose to be a part of my capsule wardrobe this spring:

  1. 1. A white halter bodysuit

  2. 2. A flirty pink front tie blouse
