Fall Capsule Wardrobe Update!

27.10.14


Well, I'm just over a month into my Fall Capsule Wardrobe, so I figured it was time for an update. Here are a few things I've learned!


01: Accessories are your friend. I've always lived with a mostly monochrome wardrobe (black is totally a colour guys), but when it came to building a capsule wardrobe for fall, my monochrome tendencies kind of kicked into overdrive. Enter colourful accessories: hats, heels, scarves, statement jewelry, basically anything that will add a little extra somethin' somethin' to a monochrome outfit.

02: I really like my cheat day. I had a feeling having a capsule wardrobe would be somewhat difficult me because I like options and variability. By giving myself one cheat day a week, where I can use other items in my wardrobe, it alleviates a bit of the pressure. I've been using my cheat day mostly for days when I am going straight from work to events/dinners/meetings afterwards and want to look a little more spruced up.

03: I really really really hate laundry. I have to admit, by having a capsule wardrobe, I am doing laundry a little more frequently than I was before that. Although I always tended to reach for the same things anyways (most of which are in the capsule wardrobe), because I had a ton of other options as well, laundry really only came once every month and a half. I loathe laundry. I think the key for getting around this is having multiples of basics, like black pants and grey tees. It's a learning curve.

04: Getting dressed in the morning is easy! When thinking about my capsule wardrobe pieces, I imagined a bunch of outfits. So now when I look at the actual capsule wardrobe, I already have outfits in mind. Less options, quicker decisions.

Those are a couple of things I've learned so far with my capsule wardrobe. I'd love to hear if any of you guys have experimented with a capsule wardrobe as well, and what you've learned so far. Let me know in the comments below!

  2. I thought about trying the capsule wardrobe concept, but once I started digging into my closet, I started wearing all of the cool things that I had forgotten about! And that is currently making me happy. :-)

    1. That's great! That's what I love about my "cheat" day, I get to explore everything else that's in my closet!

  3. This is so interesting to me. I'm always fascinated by people who do capsule wardrobes so getting the insiders' look at the process is interesting. You have lovely outfits by the way!
