A small collection of clothes that coordinate well is called a capsule wardrobe.You can assemble an outfit that you love for any occasion by carefully selecting around 30 items for your capsule wardrobe.A good capsule wardrobe will save you money, time, and closet space.
Step 1: You need to clear your closet.
A cluttered closet filled with items you don’t use often is an important part of the capsule wardrobe.Take out your clothes, shoes, and accessories.Set aside any items that you no longer love, never wear, don’t fit you, or are in poor condition.If you don’t want to keep these items, immediately donate or throw them away.If you have the time, money, and desire, you can build your entire wardrobe from scratch, but in most cases it will be more practical to start with pieces you already own and love.
Step 2: Personalize your clothes.
What will work for you is the subject of the capsule.There are usually around 30 items.The items include clothing, shoes, and accessories.You don’t have to create the perfect wardrobe for your life.Don’t put pumps or skirts in your capsule if you never dress up.If you wear activewear everyday, it’s a good idea to include it in your capsule wardrobe.

It’s better to get a good quality basic that will last through many washes and wears than to buy fast fashion items that may be cheap but won’tlast through the use they will get.
