I have so many clothes that mixing and matching them is a pain because I have too many choices. I often spend ages standing in front of the wardrobe deciding what to wear.
I decided I wanted to learn about a capsule wardrobe, as I’d seen an article about it in a magazine. I want to be more organised every time I get ready, so I asked my fellow bloggers about their top tips in creating a capsule wardrobe.
Laura from Edinburgh with kids said, I always have a capsule – here’s my latest post on my current one: http://www.edinburghwithkids.com/2018/01/05/style-winter-capsule-wardrobe-2018/
Check out her blog post as she has Loads of tips there!
Naomi from the organised Life project said, I’d say, embrace skirts but avoid dresses, and stick to a fairly limited colour palette. Check out her latest one https://theorganisedlifeproject.com/style/winter-hygge-capsule-wardrobe-2
Sarah from mumzilla said, I would recommend starting by being really firm with yourself and going through everything – if you haven’t worn it recently stick it in the charity shop pile. I got rid of two bin bags full recently and then I built a capsule look around my very favourite bits I had left.
Veronica from My parenting Journey said, It would help for you to choose the colors / palette that suits you most. Check your skin tone and your undertone if its cool or warm.For instance, if you have a warm undertone earthy shades of red, orange, yellow, green, and brown suit you.
I was half way through writing this post and chatting to my blogging buddy Amy when she realised she has a capsule wardrobe already, so decided to share some of her key pieces with you:
- black work trousers
- Black jeans
- black leggings
- selection of tops which can go from work to an evening out or casual
- a selection of evening tops
- a work jacket
- casual shorts
- ankle boots
- work shoes
- sandals or flipflops
