 3 Tips on How to Create a Capsule Wardrobe

  • Tip 1: Look through your Closet and see what type of basics you have and then see what basics you don't have. That way you are not buying just to buy but you are shopping with a purpose! 
  • Tip 2: If you need flexibility in creating a capsule for school, Make up your own rules. I love to have some type of color in my wardrobe so I'll find staple colors that will be my main focus on switch my outfit pieces up!
  • Tip 3: Don't go buy your capsule wardrobe! Chances are you have a ton of pieces that are going to work amazing in your capsule! Go through your closet and create a "Oh Heck Yes", "Ehh Maybe", and "Definitely not coming" pile! You'll be surprised how much you have in your closet to work with!
