First of all, what exactly is a capsule wardrobe? Well, it's all about curating a small collection of seasonal clothing that you love, instead of having a giant closet filled with things you almost never wear. If you are like most people, you wear 10% of your clothing 90% of the time. I've noticed in my own life, there are some items of clothing that I reach for all the time while others keep getting pushed further and further into the back of my closet. Creating a capsule wardrobe means keeping (or purchasing) only a small collection of stylish items that you can wear over and over again.
So, can you still dress stylishly without having tons of clothes? Absolutely!
With a smaller wardrobe some things do become more important though. First of all quality. If you are going to be wearing the same clothes more often, you need to make sure you're purchasing items that are going to last you through the season. A cheap sweater that can never be washed for fear of immeasurable shrinking just won't cut it with a capsule wardrobe. Secondly, with a capsule wardrobe you need to choose pieces that can be layered and re-worn multiple different ways. Having a small wardrobe does not mean you have to wear the same boring outfit every single day. On the contrary, you will likely find that having fewer items in your closet pushes you to become more creative in re-working the pieces you already own in new ways!
While your personal capsule wardrobe can include as many or as few items as you want, today I'm focusing on the 19 items that you absolutely can't go with this fall!
