Capsule Wardrobe Inspiration & Resources

When I was in the seventh grade, I used to worry that people would notice if I wore the same jeans two days in a row. I even noticed when other girls did it, and I hardcore judged them as any bratty middle schooler would do.

Totally rational, right?* Well unfortunately since then, I’ve had this mentality that I needed a closet full of variety, even if it meant owning clothes that were completely not me.

The problem with this mentality is that as my closet became more and more stuffed, I had less and less to wear. You see, having too many clothes means you have too much to choose from. It’s stressful to get ready in the morning. You lose time and you lose money.

That’s why I’ve decided to downsize my closet, embrace the notion of a capsule wardrobe, and only keep/buy items that I 100% love.

I’ll be posting updates on this process as I get into it, but if you’re interested in detoxing your closet as well, here are some resources to get things going.

Capsule Wardrobe Resources

Un-Fancy by Caroline. I have this lady to thank for giving me the idea in the first place. She only has 37 items in her closet per season and that’s pretty impressive.

Into-Mind by Anushka. For anyone who’s into checklists and forms, I cannot say enough how much I love this workbook. It’s absolutely worth the $25. Check out all of the resources on the blog first, then decide for yourself if you want to get super detailed about your wardrobe (hint: you do).

The Capsule Wardrobe by Anna. Anna’s style is my style. She’s all about keeping it simple and only wearing what she loves.

Project 333 by Coco. Coco has a mere 33 items in her wardrobe and showcases her simple and chic combinations on youtube. Anyone else think she looks like Effy from Skins?

30in30 by Kate. Check out this lady if you’re into bright colors and a more J.Crew inspired style.

Example

Here’s how I wore the same white Express blouse three different ways:

  1. I love the idea of a capsule wardrobe. If I could, I would dress casual and in 100% cotton all the time but this is not very work appropriate. I will need to start looking in investing in some good work pieces. :)

  2. Hey Catherine,
    maybe you’ve already noticed that I’m a big fan of the capsule wardrobe thing ;) Since last fall I’m downzising my clothes and I think I have still too much clothes, but it’s a process, so it’s ok and I see forward what is coming up. And it’s so true, my mornings are much more stressless and dressing is quickly done. And shopping… no longer time wasting and frustrating, yay!! :)

    1. I’ve been pretty good lately about not buying anything new! I think it’s easier for me in the summer when it’s hot, but I the urge to buy more in the fall lol. And I so agree, shopping takes up so much time! Haha.
