It’s a great way to cut back on a closet full of clutter. There are different ways to create wardrobe capsules: yearly capsules, 10×10 capsules, 30×30 capsules, travel capsules, or seasonal capsules. Here are some tips to build a spring capsule so you will have a closet full of great pieces all throughout spring!
What is a Wardrobe Capsule?
First off, let’s review. What is a wardrobe capsule? A wardrobe capsule is a small collection of clothing that you curate to fit your lifestyle. You weed through your huge closet full of clothes and build an intentional wardrobe of pieces that are versatile, classic, and fit your fashion needs. You say goodbye to the fluff and unnecessary pieces and hello to your everyday foundational pieces.
Do you have favorite colors? Do you feel and look great in certain colors? Does your closet already consist of clothes that are in a certain color scheme? Choose colors that look great together. If you pick a color scheme, then you’ll be able to mix and match your pieces (your tops and bottoms, your jackets and sweaters, your skirts and blouses) easily to achieve so many different looks. Even though you’ll have less clothes, having common colors or complementary colors will help you create so many different outfits.
When creating a wardrobe capsule, it’s important to consider the weather. What is the weather like where you live in spring? Is it warm and sunny, cloudy and cold, or in between? Pick pieces that will fit your weather needs. If you live somewhere that is still chilly, then your spring capsule will need to consist of good layering pieces: jackets, sweaters, pants, long sleeve shirts, boots. If you live somewhere that is warm in the spring, then you want to include warmer weather pieces: lighter weight fabrics, short sleeve shirts, light weight jackets, shorts, skirts, sandals.
Spring Capsule Staple Pieces
This is the most important tip! When curating a wardrobe capsule, it is essential to include staple pieces. You must have those foundational pieces in your closet that will be timeless, high quality, and versatile. Pieces that you can mix and match. Pieces that won’t go out of style. Pieces that will wear for years to come.
When considering staple pieces, think basics. White tee, black tee, skinny jeans, black leggings, leather jacket, jean jacket, chambray shirt, jean skirt, white pants…and so on. All of these pieces never go out of style and can be worn in so many different ways!
