You Requested, Ali Answered: How one can Create a Capsule Wardrobe?


How do you create a cohesive closet that is not overwhelming and in which mostly everything fits together?

Before I break things down, I need to keep you updated on a concept that has completely changed the way I shop: the capsule wardrobe. Forget about your jackets and special occasion items for a moment. The idea is that you reduce the number of items you wear each day to, say, 30 pieces. In theory, everything interlocks. And if done right, this strategy – which you can repeat every season – will open up a world of styling potential, even with less.

I like this five step approach because it’s very directional, laser focused your purchase, and forcing you to be more calculated than you normally would. In addition, with this consideration I can almost guarantee that there will be a) fewer second estimates on your part (we all know that, should I, shouldn’t debate) and b) fewer impulse purchases. Remember: restraint is the name of the game.
