I love this lady’s style (photo in the upper right corner). Neuteral colors + simple style + leather bag – that’s pretty much the perfect outfit in my book! I just discovered the blog Unfancy, where the lady in this photo, Caroline, blogs about creating and maintaining a capsule wardrobe. (And frankly, I would love to have every piece of clothing she blogs about! She has great style.) What she does is create a wardrobe of 37 pieces for each season, and she doesn’t let herself buy any clothes during that time. The idea is to have a few items of clothing that you love, so that you don’t look at your closet and think “well, I don’t love it, but I might wear it someday…”. It’s a way to simplify and define your style, and save yourself a good amount of money!
I think it’s an awesome idea, and I’ve started working on my own capsule wardrobe a little at a time. It really is so helpful to focus on buying and keeping a small number of the things you love that mesh with the rest of your wardrobe, instead of getting things here and there that fall into that maybe class.
What do you think? Would you create a capsule wardrobe?
