Timeless & Versatile Clothing Pieces – A Capsule Wardrobe

Having a ‘capsule wardrobe’ has definitely made my life easier. Before I had a full closet with lots of options. And the more options you have, the more overwhelming the choice, the less likely you are to make a good decision. Our brains become overwhelmed by too many options, which is also known as analysis paralysis. This is what happens when you stare at your overflowing closet, but don’t seem to have anything to wear. Does this sound familiar? By buying only things that I absolutely love and that are timeless and versatile, I save time getting dressed and I save money by buying fewer items. The capsule wardrobe is all about buying less and buying better. With the money saved I can invest in higher quality pieces which last longer. These not only give more joy in wearing but are also more sustainable and better for the environment.

What exactly is a capsule wardrobe? The capsule wardrobe works on the basis of timeless clothing. You basically build a wardrobe with a limited number of strategically selected items of clothing. All items go well together and because they are timeless, they will never go out of style. The key is to make sure that the pieces you have are versatile. This means that they can be paired with different pieces to create completely different looks that are appropriate for different events and occasions.
