capsule wardrobe

These ankle boots will look good with dresses, skirts, wide-leg pants and more.
If there’s one fashion trend you try this summer, let it be a summer set.
Invest in pieces that you can wear between winter and spring.
I ditched almost everything I owned to travel the world -- and it wasn't that hard.
To be honest, the number of clothes doesn't matter. In fact, there's nothing inherently wrong with owning clothes. Clothes play an important role in our lives. However, this idea that by having more we'll gain more must be put to rest.
Being an eco-minimalist style maven means not only choosing materials that are fairly traded and sweatshop free, but also choosing well made apparel that needn't be replaced often, as well as retooling what you already own.
This post isn't meant to claim moral superiority, to set hard and fast rules about shopping or to shame anyone who uses a capsule wardrobe. It's to admit my own self-centered thinking about my wardrobe and to encourage everyone, including me, to shop more intentionally.
If you don't have trouble getting dressed every day then by all means, move on. But if, like me, you do, then the capsule wardrobe is for you too, dear friend. Your world is about to be rocked.
This spring I have 11 core items (proving that you don't have to take the number 10 literally). As a working, stay-at-home mom of two small children, this washable wardrobe is wearable and chic and works for me.
The 10-item wardrobe does not mean you only have 10 items in your closet. You have a set of core items plus extras. These extras help round out your wardrobe and fill in the gaps where needed.
By narrowing down my wardrobe to these core items I have liberated myself from the closet clutter and endless cycles of shopping that used to be my reality.
When I lived in Paris on a study abroad program, I arrived with two enormous suitcases, filled to the brim with clothes. When my French host mother, Madame Chic, showed me my closet for the next six months, I was taken aback. It was a tiny armoire with around ten hangers hanging inside.
Let's shed the thick winter skin of heavy cold weather garments in our closets and prepare our wardrobes for the lightness of spring. Your look will be effortless and getting ready in the morning will be a spring breeze.
When I decided to pursue a minimalist lifestyle, one of the first areas I tackled was my closet. I had too many clothes that I didn't wear, and too little space in which to keep them.
Time to roll up your sleeves and be ruthless.
