We talked about what a capsule wardrobe is and how to start creating one but is it a perfect idea or only good in theory?
Done well the benefits of a capsule wardrobe are supposedly saving time, energy, and money.
As well as un cluttering your closet and helping you find your style.
Yet, it seems to me that there are down sides too. You'll likely have to do more laundry. The seasonal planning sounds like it would take a lot of time. Plus, buying 37 new items of clothing every three months could cost more money than save it. Is that enough to not try a capsule wardrobe? Only you can decide.
Another downside,as someone who loves color is that closet full of neutrals feels so limiting, I love bright pops of color and the richness of jewel tones. With enough thought, a capsule wardrobe doesn't have to be only a few basic colors.
1. First, think about the colors you gravitate to and like to wear. Are they warm or cool? This will jumpstart where to look for inspiration.
Into-Mind has a great crash course on color theory to spark ideas for you color palette.
2. Find the colors you wear a lot. These are your main colors.
Caroline Rector shows how to choose your main colors.
3. Pick a neutral for basics like jackets and pants.
4. Choose accent colors to add interest.
After going learning about capsule wardrobes its time to decide which type I'd like to illustrate next week! It's a little hard to decide but what do you think it should be? Which type of capsule wardrobe would you choose for yourself?
