You asked, Ali replied: How to create a capsule wardrobe?
How do you create a cohesive closet that isn’t overwhelming, where everything, for the most part, goes together?
Before I break things down, I need to bring you up to speed on a concept that has completely changed the way I shop: the capsule wardrobe. Forget your jackets and special occasion pieces for a moment. The idea is to reduce the number of items you wear each day to, say, thirty pieces. Everything, in theory, fits together. And if done right, this strategy – which you can revisit each season – will unlock a world of stylistic potential, even with less.
I happen to like this five-step approach because it’s super directional, keeps your shopping laser focused, and forces you to be more calculated than you normally would be. Plus, with this level of consideration, I can almost guarantee that there will be a) less doubting on your part (we all know should I, shouldn’t I debate) and b) less impulse buying . Remember: Restraint is the name of the game.
