A minimalist capsule wardrobe is a simple way to feel better about getting dressed. You spend less time putting together outfits, and you own fewer clothes—but you feel more confident and put together.
The first step to creating a minimal wardrobe is to get clear on your own style—and one of the best ways to do this is to create a personal uniform.
Your individual style is important, but so is your lifestyle. What clothes do you need for your daily life?
Pick the category of clothing that you wear most often, and then put together a few favourite outfits. Using your style as a guide, curate your choices while paying specific attention to versatility.
One of the reasons for creating a minimal capsule wardrobe is to create space in your closet so you can easily see what you have—and this is hard to do if your off-season clothes are taking up space.
This last step is technically optional, and you might want to test out your capsule wardrobe for a while before decluttering—but ultimately, a minimalist wardrobe means letting go of what you’re not wearing.
