How To Create A Capsule Wardrobe

What is a capsule wardrobe?

A capsule wardrobe is a small collection of clothing essentials. The very basic items that can be worn over and over in multiple ways, by experimenting with different ways of styling them. 
A capsule wardrobe consists of items that are sustainable and can be used throughout all the seasons. Items that you can mix and match to create various outfits.

There is a method called the 333 project where you choose 33 items to wear for 3 months. I watched a Netflix documentary on minimalism and the lady who tested it went to work with the same 33 items for 3 months and nobody even noticed! As long as you choose versatile items there are SO many combinations you can make with that amount of clothes and accessories.

 Below is a list of all the items in my capsule wardrobe and then a selection of outfit ideas I have put together using my staple items.

My collection consisted of 4 vests, 5 tops, 1 jumper, 1 cardigan, 1 shirt, 1 pair of leggings,  2 pairs of jeans, 1 pair of trousers, 3 skirts, 2 dresses, 2 jackets, 2 bags, 2 pairs of sandals, 2 pairs of trainers, 3 pairs of boots, and a beret. 

1. Black vest
2. Striped vest
3. White vest
4. Striped high neck vest
5. Red striped tie up top
6. Grey Rolling Stones t-shirt
7. Black turtleneck top
8. Blue pattern off shoulder top
9. Yellow long sleeve top
10. Lilac jumper
11. Striped cardigan
12. Blue shirt 
13. Black leggings
14. Beige Trousers
15. Dark blue skinny jeans
16. Light blue skinny jeans
17. Black leather skirt
18. Checked skater skirt
19. Patterned handkerchief skirt
20. Black high neck dress
21. Fitted striped dress
22. Denim jacket
23. Leather jacket
24. Tan leather bag
25. Tote bag 
26. Black heeled sandals
27. Flat sandals
28. Red trainers
29- Black trainers
30- Leather heeled ankle boots
31- Knee high tan boots
32-Checked ankle boots 
33- Black beret

Below are some of the outfits I put together using the items listed above. As you can see each outfit has a different vibe and although I have incorporated a lot of stripes and Parisian style outfits I do think each outfit has it's own unique flare.

If you would like to create your own capsule wardrobe then I really support that! You do not have to follow my list! Get creative and make your own. You might want to make a pile of items you think would work and make a list from that. You do not have to make it 33 items. You can use as little or as many as you like. You can opt to add your own items such as belts which I haven't personally included. Have fun with it!

Let me know if you give it a go!

Stay safe,
