Capsule Wardrobe or How to Keep an Impeccable Style with a Tiny Closet

If you have been trying to rethink your wardrobe setup for a while but not sure where to start, here is the best advice we can give you: build a capsule wardrobe.

What is it?

A basic collection of essentials in creating the basis of all your outfits- less is more. Varying from 25 to 40 items (according to experts), the minimalist collection should include your absolute favorite clothing, accessories and jewelry that you would wear on repeat. And no, a tinier closet does not mean you need to compromise on style.

How do you build it?

Start by (ruthlessly) emptying the contents of your wardrobe and follow your instinct when you sortthe clothes into 4 distinct piles: (Adore, Possibly maybe, Sale/donation, No way/trash). Keep the first two, say good-bye to the rest. It’s that simple.

What should you keep?

Basically, your capsule wardrobe should contain the clothes you wear daily and can’t be without.
Loose Drop Tee
Ladies, think basic Korean fashion items like a white tee and boyfriend jeans, a soft knit turtleneck and a pair of stylish tailored pants, a dress for every season, a crisp button down shirt to match a sharp blazer and a flattering pencil skirt, a classic coat, casual pants and a slouchy sweater. For accessories, add a smart clutch and a casual bag, sneakers, stilettos and ankle boots. Pair them with your favorite jewellery, sunglasses and scarves.
Unbal Over Striped Shirt
Gents should make sure they have at least one great quality shirt, a clean suit, a long overcoat and a biker jacket for casual days, a pair of classic jeans, a tee and a sweater, a cardigan, one turtleneck and a pair of joggers, loafers, dress shoes and sneakers.
Handmade Suede Sneakers

What’s so great about it?

Less is more. You will never look into your wardrobe and say you have nothing to wear again. You’ll spend less time in the morning deciding on your outfit, and save money on clothes you never wear.In addition your minimalistic approach is green- keeps money in your pocket and helps the planet. You’ll have more room in your closet for those global fashion pieces that really matter. www.KOODING.COM.
