In style with a capsule wardrobe
Imagine, you can’t go wrong with your wardrobe choices, and putting an outfit together is easy. Capsule wardrobes are a creative and structured way to organise clothes to make life easier and have time for the more important things in life.
As always, fit is essential; the key garments of your capsule like a coat, jackets, dresses, and suits should be perfect.
What is a capsule wardrobe?
Suzie Fox coined the idea in the 70s to organise cluttered, ineffective wardrobes holding the famous 80% unworn clothes we have in our closets. Since then, designers like Donna Karen and Michael Kors have developed the idea and started designing versatile collections; garments work together in style, colour, and structure. So you choose your outfit in a mix and match way and effortlessly create the best looks. The capsule wardrobe types can be formal, business casual, daywear, winter, summer garments, or even a holiday stay.
Every garment is loved and intentional. You can’t go wrong with any outfit decisions, whether it is casual-chic or a well-put-together look. Capsule wardrobes are also more sustainable. They maximise outfits and minimises wardrobe filler. Experts recommend that a capsule wardrobe should not exceed 50 garments, ideally being under 30 items. Ten well-selected and colour chosen items can create up to 6 different outfits. Just remember to have some accessories and various types of shoes in your capsule to vary the theme.
How to boost your dress style?
- Know who you are and who you want to be. Rather than follow fast-changing fashion trends, decide for personal aesthetics. Ultimately, you want to look into the mirror and recognise yourself. Stylish is confidence and means, more than anything being truthful to yourself.

- To look stylish and sophisticated, have your clothes fitted, at least your signature pieces. It reflects style and confidence and is evidence of the concept of self-care. Look for a tailor or seamstress that understands your dress style and supports you.
- Choose a timeless and classic base wardrobe rather than running with fashion trends. But, of course, you can always vamp up a classic look with trendy accessories, shoes, a handbag, a stylish belt, or a scarf to add some edge.
- Create a capsule wardrobe; it is a collection of garments you can mix, match, and use as building blocks to create different looks. Items of a capsule wardrobe are outerwear, denim, knitwear, blouse or shirt, belt, a suit, or a dress.
- Vary with colour and texture but stay truthful to silhouettes you know work well with your body shape. Be aware of how you choose a colour. It can create drama and calm. But, first, decide what you want to achieve and use a colour wheel to make o.
- Some expressive signature garments set the tone and allow you to stay on budget with basics. Be creative and aware of what you are looking for when you go shopping. A good piece of advice is – don’t buy anything unless you have three items in your wardrobe you can wear with them.
