Last year I came across this amazing concept of a minimalist wardrobe, also called a capsule wardrobe. I first saw it on the Today Show as a segment, and then came across this adorable blog called Un-Fancy. The whole point of a capsule wardrobe is to put together a limited closet for each season – spring, summer, fall and winter. Being a simple kind of gal (my husband will laugh at this) I’ve decided to give it a try!
It can. Depending on your lifestyle, you may need more business attire and less casual clothes, or vice versa. Planning a minimalist wardrobe is all about being efficient and concise with your style and lifestyle. If you work in a corporate world, then I’m sure you will need more business attire than casual clothes. But, be creative and look for clothes that you can either dress up or down. Remember that accessories, shoes, makeup and hair can totally change the vibe of an outfit… so instead of feeling limited, think of the styling options that will make your outfit look new and fresh.
For me, a minimalist wardrobe has proven to simplify my every day routine. I recently just started to work from home and have the luxury of wearing anything that I want. I don’t have to get up and go to a corporate office anymore, so that means my wardrobe can now reflect me, instead of corporate dress codes. Praise the LORD!
Here’s why I truly believe limiting yourself to a minimal wardrobe can benefit you greatly:
I’m totally buzzing on this idea and wondering if anyone else out there has attempted a capsule/minimalist wardrobe? I’d love to be inspired by your closet and share it as inspiration on the site, so drop me a link so I can showcase your capsule wardrobe experience as well!
Thanks for reading ya’ll!
