as i read everything about remixing i could get my grubby little hands on this year, i kept hearing the term ‘capsule wardrobe.’
‘what the heck is that?’ i wondered. i felt like it was something you’d wear to rocket into space.
“For generations before us, women utilized capsule wardrobes out of necessity. It was simply too expensive to buy items without thought. A woman would carefully curate a set of clothing in which each piece was infinitely wearable and would complement any other piece in her collection.” (page 9, The No Brainer Wardrobe)
over time, the retail industry has made clothing less expensive and more readily available- while at the same time, constantly bringing “new” fashions to the forefront.
a couple of months ago, i began to wonder if there were articles of clothing that continued to be “in” fashion over and over again. could i build a basic capsule wardrobe out of those pieces that would serve me better than amassing the latest and greatest items that i wore only a few times?
i’m so excited about what i found i can barely wait to share with you! no matter your age, style, size, or shape, it’s possible to have a timeless capsule wardrobe. it will save you time, money, and free you up for things that are so much more important than sitting on your closet floor staring, eyes glazed over at the items in front of you, the thought, ‘i have nothing to wear!’ echoing in your precious mind. (or is that just me?)
