I'm still thinking about the WSJ article... "The Closet to Envy Is Half Full". I truly believe that it's time to change the way we shop and dress. It doesn't have to be expensive, but it has to be with purpose. The intention must be to create a wardrobe that really works. Our clothing should reflect our lifestyle and our personal style.
Getting dressed should be fun!
Recently, there has been much buzz about the Capsule Wardrobe. There are many ways to approach the task of creating a limited, yet functional wardrobe.
The basic idea is simple....
Scale your entire wardrobe down to a select number of items. Put all other items out of sight. Wear only the chosen pieces for a set length of time.
Some plans omit jewelry, accessories, shoes and outerwear. Others go all in and include everything that is worn...with the exception of bras, panties and socks.
The lovely part is that you can experiment with a capsule wardrobe and make it completely your own. The idea is to try dressing with fewer pieces and see how it feels to you. Tweaking someone else's system is entirely okay!
I must admit that I have not ever tried to create a true capsule wardrobe. The idea
does scare me a little. However, when I travel I am essentially working with a capsule wardrobe...and I love getting dressed when I travel! It stems from the simplicity of only packing pieces that I love and having those pieces work together to make lots of different outfits.
I have checked out some Capsule Wardrobe experiments online. These ladies make it look easy and fun!
Take a look...what do you think?
