Lately I’ve been keen on decluttering, or the mission to clean up the house – get rid of everything unnecessary, all those things that are not useful, or just stay there filling your space and collect dust. I will not bore you with all the household shenanigans, but when it comes to fashion I discovered the idea of a capsule wardrobe, or very tight and functional wardrobe that consists of only a few things that can be combined, mixed and matched, and I want to share a bit more. The original idea is that every season your wardrobe consists of only 37 pieces of clothing, shoes and accessories, but I personally am still not quite there yet, to only have 37 things. However as of this autumn I am into the process of cutting off shopping, getting rid of a lot of the things I do not wear.
But today I want to share a list of fashion essentials, which I compiled and which I am trying to collect into my wardrobe. In it I have included outerwear for all occasions, blouses, pants, dresses, skirts and accessories, bonus two things that made me very happy lately – fancy, cool pajamas and cashmere socks. You can download the list itself here, if you decide that you find it useful.
And since I’m an online shopping fan, I wanted to find a few great examples of each item on the list. And I realized that I am in black-gray-white period, and it has been quite some time now. It is so classic, stylish and easy to combine. I selected one item for each category on the list above – trench, coat, white shirt, striped shirt, denim skirt, etc., rather as a vision, than a brand, so that I can clearly illustrate what I mean. I hope you find this post useful. If you are interested in the idea of the capsule wardrobe, please let me know in the comments section and I will share more because it’s really interesting.
