How To Plan For Your Capsule Wardrobe

I don't know about you, but in the past when I would go shopping, I would go for fun. I would go without a plan. And most often I would go shopping to fill some void. Not that I would think to myself:

Hey, I'm feeling some sort of void. I should go to the mall to find happiness.

But hindsight is 20/20, my friends. I started to realize that when I would go to the mall with my friend, it was usually because I was feeling down. Which was usually caused by trying to get dressed for some event or outing.

How To Define Your Capsule Wardrobe

 

Prepping for a capsule wardrobe has proven to be tough work thus far, but we're resilient people; We can handle anything. Right?

We've found our why, we ruthlessly purged our closet, we got inspired and made a visual guide to stay focused. Can we start shopping, yet?

Slow your roll, friend. Let's clearly define our capsule wardrobe. If you've made the decision to move forward with a capsule wardrobe, it's very likely you had issues before. Issues with your shopping habits and with your budgeting. Or lack thereof. You always feel stressed when you get dressed and nothing in your closet feels like you.

How To Find Your Style For Your Capsule Wardrobe

In a previous post, I showed my own personal inspiration for my first capsule wardrobe, but I didn't give you many details on how to gather said inspiration. I'd like to expand upon that.

Once your closet has been edited down to the items you love, it's time to focus in on purchasing what you need to complete your capsule wardrobe. But, wait. First you need to figure out what your style is.

How do I do that?
