I’ve been looking through Pinterest these past few days and have noticed that a lot of bloggers are doing a capsule wardrobe. For those of you who don’t know what a capsule wardrobe is, it’s when a wardrobe has a limited amount of items, tending to stick to around 40 or so pieces, and all can be swapped to create a large number of different outfits.
For me, this seems more like a challenge than anything but I love the idea of the capsule wardrobe. I love buying new clothes, taking advantage of my many student discounts but, since reading about this, I’m very tempted to give a capsule wardrobe a try. Not only will this be a fun journey to share with you all but it’ll keep me from buying any new clothes.
When I first started looking into capsule wardrobes, I was slightly intimidated by the idea. I don’t have a lot of clothes, I like to keep my possessions to a minimum, and the idea of getting rid of even more made me think a lot. I love my little wardrobe and I don’t wish to throw any of my beloved clothes out for this challenge.
In terms of keeping items to a minimum, I tend to donate a lot of clothes I no longer need, often doing so before I purchase new clothes as to keep my wardrobe at a decent size.
I currently use the app GlamOutfit which can be downloaded for free on the app store. This app is a lovely little online wardrobe that allows you to upload all of your clothes, either taking photos or even googling them and adding them that way. You can create little outfits and save them into separate categories, as well as follow people and ask them to create outfits for you. For those of you thinking of starting a capsule wardrobe, I believe this app will greatly help you in your adventure.
