Are you struggling every morning to come up with an outfit? Worse, you think you have nothing to wear in your wardrobe? You are definitely not alone! If it is so difficult to take such a supposedly easy decision, how are we supposed to start the day on a positive note? Choosing an outfit might be challenging for some of us, but there is a simple solution, start a capsule wardrobe! Building a capsule wardrobe will help you present yourself to the world with a selection of well-curated outfits that you bought with intention and that you love.
Here at London Rag we present to you a complete guide on what a capsule wardrobe is and why you need to start one and how to do it!What is a Capsule Wardrobe?
In the 1970s, Susie Faux, owner of a London based boutique called Wardrobe, coined the term "capsule wardrobe." She defined it as a limited number of essential or staple items that you can wear for multiple seasons. Building a capsule wardrobe is a way to simplify your closet down to long lasting, high quality clothes that you love and wear often. There are many reasons why you may want to build a capsule wardrobe! At London Rag we give you a few.
The first would be Conserve Energy. Our brain is programmed only to make a certain number of decisions during the day. After that, it gets tired, and we struggle to make more decisions. Having a capsule wardrobe means that you have fewer clothes, they work well together, and you love them.
The second would be More Sustainable. Since you don’t have many clothes, you wear every single piece you own, so no clothing is going to waste. People who choose to have a capsule wardrobe, also often invest in quality pieces that last long and avoid fast fashion, which is a wasteful industry.
Third would be Save Money. When you have a capsule wardrobe, you do not have to go shopping often because your clothing pieces are interchangeable and versatile. This means you wear them multiple times, and you do not buy pieces that you will not end up wearing regularly. So basically you end up having a minimalist wardrobe.
Last but not the least No Stress. You do not have to stress over the clothing pieces not fitting you. There is also less maintenance and repairing as you have fewer clothes. You’re more likely to choose clothing that is easy to take care of, and it’s easier to pack when you go traveling or move houses.
So now imagine, how would it feel to spend less time, money, and energy on your clothes and look fabulous every day? Fantastic, right? So now it’s time for a brand new shopping trip. At London Rag we give you few essentials of a classic Capsule Wardrobe.
