New year, new wardrobe! If you haven't started your capsule wardrobe yet, the beginning of a new year is the perfect time. You might find yourself thinking… “What's a capsule wardrobe”? Consider it your hack to easy and effortless looks no matter the season. A capsule wardrobe is a smaller selection of clothing pieces that not only complement each other, but can create a variety of looks year round.
The best way to start your capsule wardrobe is by cleaning out your closet! Figure out which pieces you couldn't live without and which you totally forgot you had. Look at which colors, fits, and styles you lean towards. Once you've got that done, it's time to start building!
Back to Basics
The building blocks of any capsule wardrobe are basics! Boutique tees and cute tanks are a great place to start. Not only do they provide comfort in summer, but they are the perfect layering piece for the chillier months. Other great basics to add to the list are boutique sweaters, a simple dress, a cute jacket, and your favorite pair of denim. Mixing and matching those items alone can give you at least 5 different looks! Make sure that the pieces you choose represent you and your own unique style.
Incorporating New Trends
Here comes the fun part! Now that you've got the core of your capsule wardrobe, you can start working in new trend specific pieces. For this, you can look to some of your favorite celebs for inspo. “It Girls” like Hailey Bieber and Kendall Jenner rock that model off duty look with oversized silhouettes, trouser style boutique pants, and athleisure elements. If you prefer a softer, more girly vibe, you can look to celebrities like Florence Pugh who incorporate dressier elements and more flowy silhouettes into their looks. This is your opportunity to have fun and make the look completely unique to you!
The Finishing Touches
No capsule wardrobe is complete without the perfect boutique shoes and accessories. When selecting these pieces, think about your day to day. If you spend a lot of time on the go, opt for a boutique sneaker to keep you comfy. If you enjoy spending lots of time on the town, a fancy bootie or heel may be a better choice. Add on some trendy yet timeless jewelry pieces that are sure to finish any look!
