I’ve been obsessed with simplifying my wardrobe for over 3 years now. I used to have loads of clothes, but nothing to wear. When I think about it, I only wore (and still wear) a handful of pieces regularly. So I decided to curate a capsule wardrobe of clothing pieces that were:
- My favourite
- I would actually wear them and not just keep them because they looked pretty hanging in my wardrobe
- They were comfortable (VERY IMPORTANT)
- Natural material, sustainable & long-lasting
I think my wardrobe consists of about 30’ish pieces altogether and I feel really happy with the number of clothes I own right now. I wear everything but some pieces a lot more than others. One thing hasn’t changed since I began my capsule wardrobe adventure – I never get bored of owning less but better.
What’s in my wardrobe:
- 2 dresses
- 4 t-shirts
- 1 pair of jeans
- 4 Trousers
- 1 skirt
- 5 warm jumpers
- 1 coat (Spring & Autumn
- 1 coat (Autumn & Winter)
- 1 linen blouse
- 2 pairs of trainers
- 2 jogging bottoms
… and a few more items which I can’t remember right now, but the above is about 95% of my overall wardrobe.
My capsule wardrobe has taken me years of trial and error to get to a point where I not only feel happy with the number of pieces I have but also feel like it reflects my personal style and suits my life. I’ve learnt so much along the way and there’s a lot I wish I’d known when I was first starting out.
