Adopting a capsule wardrobe approach means that you:
- have less clothes, but multiple outfits
- wear more of your clothes more often
- save time getting dressed each day
- save money – by having a smaller wardrobe in the first place and only needing to add new items now and again
- and do your bit to save the environment in the process
Here’s an example. This is what I took on holiday:
My colour theme was white, green, navy and black. This is the key to developing a mix and match wardrobe. Restricting the number of colours, means that everything goes with everything else. When you choose a pattern for example, it has to be a mix of two or more of the colours.
This is very easy if you know which colours suit you, so for me as someone with Bright/Clear colouring, the bright green is a real favourite. I can wear this with either of the three neutral colours, black, navy and white, and given that I suit high contrast colour combinations, I can also wear the white with either the black or navy. (If you want to know which colours really suit you and how to mix and match them, a colour consultation could be just what you’re looking for.)
You can of course add a further colour(s) if you want an even bigger number of outfit options, but I was able to create over 50 different outfits from this capsule.
Here are some of the examples of outfits I created and wore (excuse the poor photography – all taken by my husband on my phone!):
Here are just some of the possible 50 outfit options I had to choose from:-
