The Advantages Of Having A Capsule Wardrobe.

In the last blog entry, I mentioned capsule wardrobes because they are definitely a thing.  They are actually a good thing to choose because you have certain pieces of a wardrobe which can be mixed and matched to create a large number of looks. All the pieces are selected so they go together. 

Too many of us will buy piece after piece of clothing, adding to our collection.  Many of us do not get rid of the clothing that doesn't fit anymore, is the wrong color, or we never get around to wearing so we are constantly adding to the closet.  A capsule wardrobe is a wonderful idea for so many reasons. 

One of the biggest advantages of using a capsule wardrobe is that you do not need tons of closet space to store your clothing. Instead, you can store everything in a regular sized closet including your shoes. The reality is that when you have a lot of clothes, you are only going to wear a certain number anyway so when you have fewer pieces, you actually don't have to spend a lots of time deciding what to wear. 

In addition, when you have a capsule wardrobe, you end up saving time because there are a limited number of pieces in a specific color palette which makes shopping much easier. Thus in the morning, you spend less time getting ready due to having fewer choices available.  This means you don't have to try on numerous outfits trying to decide what to wear and you won't suffer from decision fatigue.  As a result, you have more time for other things. 

Furthermore, a capsule wardrobe means you spend less money overall due to only needing a certain number of pieces.  This means you can invest money in a few quality pieces that will last much longer and you will be less likely to purchase those pieces you never wear, don't go with other pieces, or are the wrong color.   Plus, you'll only have to replace a few pieces such as shirts and accessories to change your look.  You don't have to buy a whole new wardrobe every season.

As mentioned before, it is easier to develop your personal style because it is so much easier to do that with a capsule wardrobe.  Each piece is selected to create the exact look you want when mixed with the others. Every accessory provides that finishing touch so you look put together.  In fact, having a capsule wardrobe helps build confidence because your wardrobe is designed so the pieces you choose will always look great. 

  It is also good for the planet because we are wearing each piece of clothing for a longer period of time thus reducing the demand for clothing.  A capsule wardrobe is more sustainable and places less demand for raw materials such as cotton, wool, or even synthetic fabrics.  The clothing industry uses over 20 trillion gallons a year and is responsible for about 20 percent of all water pollution.  So the less clothing we need, the less water used and the less pollution that happens.

Think about creating your own capsule wardrobe to save time, money, and frustration.  Let me know what you think, I'd love to hear.  Have a great day.
