How to create a Minimalist Capsule Wardrobe: Essentials

How to create a Minimalist Capsule Wardrobe: Essentials

On our last blog post we talked about the definition of a capsule wardrobe and listed three good reasons to create one. This time we will list all the essential items a capsule wardrobe should have.

Before we begin, a little disclaimer: there isn’t an universal number of items a capsule wardrobe should have. It depends on many things, but especially on yourself, your personality, needs and lifestyle. The number of items should be your choice, but to help you out we can point out to the number 33. This 33 items can consist of:

  • 22 items of clothing including outerwear,
  • 2 jewelry pieces,
  • 5 accessories
  • 4 pair of shoes

We’re excluding underwear, sleepwear and workout clothes from this number and, of course, this is just an example. Feel free to adapt your capsule wardrobe however you like.

Tip: in truth, you should have two capsule wardrobes: one for Spring/Summer and another for Autumn/Winter.
