Yesterday I posted on my social media pages (you can find me here on Facebook and here on Instagram) about wardrobes. I asked my community whether their wardrobes were more minimalist or maximalist. Here's the post:
(Bonus points if you know who the wardrobe on the right belongs to!)
Which one are you? Mine resembles the one on the left, as I have a capsule wardrobe. I had a great response to the post, so I thought I'd continue the conversation through this week's blog post!
So what is a capsule wardrobe? It's a small, curated wardrobe where each piece has been specifically chosen to work together with every other piece to create a large number of outfits.
My capsule wardrobe is made up of 27 pieces: 7 bottoms, 14 tops, 3 layering pieces and 3 dresses. These have all been chosen to work with my colouring, body type, style personality and lifestyle.
You may be thinking, "How can someone have only 27 pieces in their wardrobe?!"
Well, here's the thing: most women wear only 20% of their wardrobe 80% of the time. Think about your own wardrobe: how much of it do you actually wear on a day-to-day basis?
Having a capsule wardrobe streamlines and brings peace back into your wardrobe. You don't have all this clutter that you have to sift through to find an outfit in the morning: everything in your wardrobe has its place and is practical for your day-to-day life.
Here are a few other benefits of a capsule wardrobe:
Capsule wardrobes are the smarter way of creating a wardrobe. They stop you from spending too much time in your wardrobe every morning and get you back to living your life!
If this concept interests you, why not get in touch with me? I can help you develop a 27-piece wardrobe (the formula I use is called '27 Hangers') so you can bring peace back into your wardrobe and stop spending your lifetime deciding what to wear! Contact me to organise this for yourself.
Until next week,
P.S. If you guessed the "maximalist" wardrobe pictured is owned by a Kardashian, then you'd be correct! It's owned by Khloe Kardashian. Apparently she transformed two huge bedrooms into this wardrobe. Can you imagine trying to find an outfit to wear?!
