Hello everyone! This post has been on my mind for awhile & includes my top tips for curating your capsule wardrobe. Let me remind you that…
Progress Beats Perfection
Capsule Wardrobe Curation Tips:
- Progress beats Perfection
- Strongly Defined Personal Style
- Contentment & Creativity
- Take Excellent Care of Your Capsule
- Year – Round Color Palette
- Don’t Discard Everything!
Goal: focus on what you already own that is working well.
My capsule wardrobe journey began the fall of 2017… Below is a rather scary picture of what had to be tackled.
Believe it or not, if your closet looks like this, you’re in a great place to begin curating your capsule wardrobe!
Five months later… Spring/Summer Capsule 2018
Again, there is progress as the color palette becomes more unified. Be patient as you explore the colors, cuts, styles, and patterns that work for you. The best, most functional capsules are curated over time.
ONE YEAR LATER… Fall/Winter Capsule 2018
This is such a huge difference in one year! I’m always amazed when looking at these before & after pictures. And, you know what? I don’t miss any of those clothes!
Benefits along the way…
- More Fun. Not only did our closet have breathing room, but I began having more fun with my wardrobe!
- Better style. My personal style became more evident to me & it was easier to see where to direct my style for the seasons ahead.
- More useful. This process reveals what really works for your lifestyle & what you truly enjoy wearing.
Which brings us to this year…
Spring/Summer 2020 (Before Minimizing)
Our small reach-in closet forces us to keep it simple & organized. My goal was take the tips I’ve learned on curating a wardrobe & pare down to every day clothes. Church & special occasion wear are stored elsewhere.
AN EVERY DAY CAPSULE
After minimizing my capsule these are the choices presented every morning. I love the simplicity of fewer choices & the ease dressing ~ everything goes together!
No matter what there is to do this everyday capsule has just the thing needed. So refreshing & easy! Now that I can look at my wardrobe from before I’ll never go back… this is too easy & fun!
I hope this post & video have inspired you not just to pare down, but to really pay attention to what you truly enjoy wearing & what is working for you! Be patient & remember progress is better than finding that “perfect” piece or having a perfect capsule wardrobe.
Thank you so much for joining me today as we explored basic tips for curating the best capsule wardrobe for you!
