capsule wardrobe

Many are interested in — what is a capsule wardrobe? First of all, it is a rational approach to the choice of clothes. A single capsule includes a set of 6-12 items plus accessories that match in texture, color and purpose. Stylists strongly advise you to create capsules if you want to always look stylish and modern, without racking your brains in the morning over the age-old question: “What to wear?”. This method allows you to combine new things and already existing basic ones, as well as rationally buy new items, not being guided by a random impulse.

It is recommended to have several capsules in your wardrobe, depending on your lifestyle, preferences and hobbies, for example: a capsule for work, sports, cocktail or everyday. A wardrobe capsule can combine things in one color scheme or include up to five different shades, as well as have several branded items.

How to build a capsule wardrobe?

Let’s see how to put together a capsule wardrobe in practice.

  1. To begin with, we determine the purpose of this capsule: sports, work, recreation — in a word, what you most often have to come up with an image for.
  2. Now we determine the type of your figure and find out the cut that suits your complexion.
  3. We determine the color scheme, consisting of 1-2 primary colors and several shades that perfectly match and complement each other. You also need to choose one color that will be a bright accent in this capsule.
  4. We review the existing items, selecting from them those that will make up the capsule, and decide on the rest that you want to purchase.
  5. When buying, first of all, clothes are selected, and then shoes are selected for it, and only then accessories and jewelry.

Every time you are going to buy a thing you like, you need to think about how it will be combined with a specific capsule in your wardrobe. It is also worth carefully choosing accessories, because they should complement favorably, and not overload individual images.

Sample capsule

Let’s look at an example of a European-inspired casual capsule wardrobe where black and beige are the main colors:

  • classic straight black skirt;
  • black fitted jacket;
  • pleated skirt in beige;
  • black dress;
  • a pair of light blouses;
  • the jacket is also beige;
  • a pair of thin colored blouses;
  • classic pants;
  • several pairs of shoes with heels;
  • handbag and jewelry.

Winter capsule

To add variety to your everyday winter look, you should choose brighter shades, instead of the standard blacks, browns and grays. The main items in this wardrobe capsule that you need to pay special attention to are outerwear, shoes and a hat. Going to the store, try to choose not just warm and practical clothes, but also elegant ones that can emphasize your individuality. Assembling a winter capsule wardrobe, first of all, pick up outerwear — it can be a down jacket, a coat or a fur coat. The longest retains a pleasant appearance — a fur coat. Its service life with proper care is from 3 to 6 years, the coat is slightly lower, and the down jacket has to be changed after 2-3 seasons.

Properly selected shoes will perfectly complement your look and keep your feet warm, and a winter hat will complete it. Another must-have in your capsule wardrobe for the winter, which will add sophistication and chic, is a natural fur vest. The rest of the capsule is assembled based on your clothing preferences.

spring capsule

Composing a spring capsule wardrobe, it is worth starting from the trendy color palette of this season. In 2013, emerald, jade with shades of gray, orange-coral, as well as various shades of blue are in fashion. You need to start compiling now, as warming is just around the corner. Let’s look at an example of what a spring capsule can consist of:

  • gray cashmere coat;
  • short leather jacket;
  • skinny jeans;
  • classic blue trousers;
  • black leggings;
  • turquoise tunic;
  • black dress;
  • classic shirt;
  • trendy sweater;
  • two pairs of shoes (with heels and solid soles);
  • black bag.

A well-chosen capsule wardrobe will allow you to combine, like a designer, the minimum number of things is almost unlimited, while you will always look bright and very elegant.
