let's talk capsule wardrobes✨
The discourse around the pitfalls fast fashion is growing - and rightfully so - but aside from equating the name SHEIN with voldemort, what’s a more concrete way we can make less shiddy consumption choices? Ladies and gentlemen: her...the capsule wardrobe!
Simply put, a capsule wardrobe consists of a small number of timeless pieces that complement your body, your style, and each other. These are intentional pieces that are immune to the microtrends of tiktok and will endure the test of time. The goal is to whittle down your closet to a few everyday items that all work well together and that you will actually wear. Why a capsule wardrobe, you ask? Well…
Less decision making. We are plagued by enough decision fatigue in our daily lives, why have your closet be another stressor? Having a few go-to pieces to style together leaves less room for getting overwhelmed by flipping through hangers upon hangers of clothing. Start with your basics and build from there.
Wallet Friendly. Say it with me: I will not succumb to microtrends! It’s exhausting to our brains and our wallets trying to keep up with trends that last little over a few months. If you have an enduring personal style selected with intention, you’ll save tons of money on cycling through clothes.
More confidence. Reducing your closet to only pieces that you feel your best in is a great way to hone in on your personal style. You’ll feel more confident and comfortable in dressing with intention.
Less clutter. In the wise words of Dame Marie Kondo, does this spark joy? An organized space can have a major impact on our mental state, and your closet is a great place to start.
A capsule wardrobe should represent your personality and style. It can be full of colour, prints and textures. You have to make it work for you!
Remember to be less shiddy to others, our planet, and yourself.
