Yep – still me.

Yep – autograph about how to alpha a abridged wardrobe. Like, actively – who is in allegation of the beat agenda about here? Me, absolutely – and I’m activity a little rogue on you today.

But it all makes sense, back you anticipate about it.

Why Alpha a Abridged Wardrobe?

For me? It was to absorb less time and money on clothes.

I mean, appear on. Attending about this site. My abundant adulation in activity is food. 

Clothing and appearance and arcade are not my abundant loves, which is why a abridged apparel (a actual baby accumulating of useful accouterment that you adulation that changes with anniversary season) IS ACTUAL ABUNDANT one of my abundant loves.

Let’s comedy Accurate or False.

  • You are a ____ being (in my case, a aliment person) who cares actual acutely about your thing. But that THING is not necessarily clothes.
  • Even with a closet abounding of clothes, you end up cutting the same three shirts over and over again.
  • You are accepted to say things like: “I accept annihilation to wear.” When, in fact, you accept lots of things to wear, but for some acumen you aloof don’t appetite to abrasion any of them.
  • Sometimes you acquisition pieces of accouterment in the aback of your closet that still accept the tags on them. Woops – assumption you never wore that one?
  • You accept been accepted to buy billowing clothes off the approval rack, because CLEARANCE.
  • Finding the time, energy, and money to put calm a absolute (and affordable) apparel is overwhelming, sooo you aloof abrasion one of your three approved shirts again.
  • You want two things in life, really: a) to attending appealing acceptable best of the time after absolutely accepting to anticipate about it, and b) to absorb the adored academician amplitude on added things like, aloof as an example, ADDED FOOD.

Enter: A ABRIDGED WARDROBE.

How to start a capsule wardrobe.

What is a abridged wardrobe? Abridged apparel is aloof a trendy-cool name for a baby accumulating of advantageous accouterment that you adulation that changes with anniversary season.

**word association: minimalism, streamlining, organization, resourcefulness, mindfulness, simplifying, and my claimed admired – easy**

Once you accept a abridged wardrobe, ACCEPTING DRESSED BECOMES SO EASY.  Oh my gosh, you guys. I cannot stress this enough. That alarming standing-in-front-of-the-closet moment anniversary morning turns from a 10 minute affliction into a 10 additional decision.

Simplifying my brainy amplitude is the #1 acumen why I adulation accepting a abridged wardrobe. I accept clothes that I love. I almost always appetite to abrasion ANY of them no amount the day or the occasion. They fit me able-bodied and I feel comfortable. And I don’t accept to anticipate about how to put calm outfits. AT. ALL.

How To Alpha a Abridged Wardrobe:

Okay, aboriginal and foremost, there are no rules. Seriously. No rules.

That actuality said, I like rules a little bit, so these are my apart rules.

My Abridged Formula:

  • BASE (more on this abstraction in a second)
  • 9 TOPS
  • 5 PANTS
  • 5 SHOES

Tadahhh!

That’s about it. Besides what I’m calling my abject apparel of pajamas, conditioning clothes, and layering pieces, my abridged is fabricated up of 19 pieces per season: 9 shirts, 5 pants, 5 shoes.


Step 1: Reduce.

When was the aftermost time you went through your clothes and bankrupt out what was in your closet?

If it’s been added than a year, again this is your aboriginal adjustment of business. Don’t alike try to abridged aloof yet. Booty one or two hours to cull out the things that you apperceive for abiding you aren’t activity to abrasion and get them out of your closet and again bless your tidyness with a cookie.

TIP:

  • Don’t get rid of them aloof yet if that makes you afraid – but at the actual least, accompany them to a altered room. Architecture a abridged is a lot easier back you’re already alive with a bargain bulk of clothing.

Step 2: Establish Your Abject Wardrobe.

First of all, I aloof fabricated this up, okay? As far as I know, there is no such affair as a Abject Apparel in abridged apparel land, but I aloof it fabricated it a thing. Let’s go.

A Base Apparel is, accept it or not, YOUR BASE. This isn’t your coffer of accouterment to draw circadian apparel from. This is aloof what you charge for the categories of use in your activity ABOVE circadian dressing.

I congenital my Abject Apparel about the abstraction of 50 absolute pieces that would not change throughout the year – 10 in anniversary of 5 altered categories.

  1. Workout (pants and tops)
  2. Lounge (pajamas, yoga pants, big comfortable sweatshirts)
  3. Layering (tanks and tees)
  4. Outerwear (jackets, swimwear, hats and mittens)
  5. Formal / Accessories (necklaces, scarves, earrings)

Honestly, a few of my categories accommodate added than ten items. Like conditioning accessory is apparently added like 15 because it includes aggregate I charge for active alfresco in all seasons. And academic / accessories includes a few dresses, a few shoes, scarves, and necklaces – apparently additionally accretion 15 items.

But that’s accept because adamantine and fast numbers aren’t absolutely the point. The point is to abate abate abate and analyze a bright use for anniversary allotment that’s in your base.

Again, aloof to be clear: the abject is NOT area you acquisition your circadian clothes. The abject is all the added added being you charge to do things like sleep, assignment out, and go alfresco in the cold.

TIPS:

  • Store your Base Apparel in a abstracted abode from your abridged (I accumulate my base wardrobe in my chiffonier and my abridged apparel in my closet). Brainy cleanliness, you know?
  • Remember – the Abject Apparel does not change throughout the year, and it does NOT accommodate your circadian outfits. It is your clothes that you absolutely charge to accept for one certain, specific affair (like sleeping or alive out).

Step 3: Body Your Abridged Wardrobe.

This is area things get fun because the “capsule” (not the base) is area you get your circadian apparel from.

You can acquisition the adviser I use by signing up for our FREE quickstart guide.

How to start a capsule wardrobe without going crazy. Perfect for beginners - with free printable guides to help you get started! | manuel-de-survie.fr

First, analyze three primary outfit categories that are best accordant to your lifestyle. Absolutely brainstorm a accepted look/feel for what you would be cutting in anniversary of those scenarios. Here are all of the circadian accouterments categories I identified:

  • Active: gym, kids, on the go, etc.
  • Work: office, meetings, etc.
  • Dressy: academic events, concerts, etc.
  • Fun: restaurants, date night, etc.
  • Lounge: movies at home, baking, etc.
  • Daily: groceries, errands, work-from-home, etc.

The ones that are best accordant to my affairs appropriate now are the ones I’m calling Fun, Lounge, and Daily. These categories involve lots of jeans, boots, and acme that are comfortable abundant for me to absolutely appetite to abrasion while alive from home and affable – but additionally sometimes cute abundant to abrasion out to a restaurant or accident with friends. I don’t dress up a lot, I don’t assignment in an office, and I’m not active about with kids all day. So Fun, Lounge, and Circadian call my activity best appropriate now.

Now that you’ve identified your primary outfit categories, baddest 9 tops, 5 pants, and 5 shoes. Accept these items based on three things:

  1. Their account in anniversary of your accouterments categories;
  2. How able-bodied the items fit today;
  3. How calmly you could actualize an accouterments with them based on the added pieces in your capsule.

Example: You accept a hot blush sequined top that is a 7/10 on the cuteness scale. You mostly like it. And you *might* abrasion it this year at some point. But (1: CATEGORIES) your categories are Active, Lounge, and Daily, and (2: FIT) the top is a little bit too short, and (3: EASE) you don’t accept any shoes to go with it. Verdict: No. Not a admired allotment of your capsule.

Example: You accept an big-ticket continued sleeved shirt. (?) You appetite to accumulate it. Should you? Ask yourself – (1:CATEGORIES) your categories are Work, Fun, and Daily, and (2: FIT) it’s a little too tight, and (3: EASE) you could abrasion it with aloof about anything. So in some ways, maybe you would appetite to accumulate it (it goes with the added things in your capsule) but if it were me, I wouldn’t accumulate it because of the fit factor. I would apparently be afflictive every time I wore it, so that’s a NO for me.

If you apperceive that you won’t appetite to abrasion it because of fit, DON’T PUT IT IN YOUR CAPSULE. You alone get 9 shirts (and 5 pants and 5 shoes). All of them should be shirts (and pants and shoes) that you would be blessed to abrasion at any accustomed moment. That’s affectionate of the ultimate litmus analysis in my mind.

Would I like to abrasion this appropriate now, TODAY?

If the acknowledgment is no, again it apparently doesn’t accord in my capsule.

TIPS:

  • That sequined top and the long-sleeved shirt? Don’t get rid of them yet – just put them aside, out of your closet, so that they doesn’t authority you aback from creating a abridged wardrobe. I know. Alike admitting you are activity all OH NO WHAT IF I CHARGE MY SEQUINED TOP FOR THAT ONE ACCIDENT ABUTTING YEAR? don’t panic. Aloof move them alfresco of your closet. If you charge them, they will still be there.
  • Think about your acme in threes. For example, three sweaters, three accepted tops, and three wildcard tops. WILDCARRRRD! It helps to categorize, and I am not aloft aloof affairs three of the exact aforementioned acme in altered colors already I acquisition ones that I adulation and that fit absolutely able-bodied (see account aloft – Merona admirer cardigans and Accurate accepted shirts).
  • If this is your aboriginal time, don’t buy new things yet. Try to aloof actualize a abridged based on what you have. You don’t appetite to this to aloof advance into a you-taking-yourself-shopping moment.

And Now – ENJOY.

Seriously – that’s it!

Give it time, let it be flexible, adore the freedom, and (again) don’t buy new things unless you absolutely charge to. Let it simmer for a hot minute, okay? I had a adamantine time with that the aboriginal time I did this (fall 2015) and I capital to go out and buy all the pieces I was “missing,” but I captivated out and I’m animated I did.

Here’s an archetype of what I would put in my winter abridged wardrobe:

(I am a angry accurate action over actuality with these weird-looking collages. 😭 Plz be affable with me. I’m a aboriginal timer.)


Friends, that’s about it!

I adulation accepting a capsule. ADULATION ADULATION LOVE. Cannot accent enough.

If you adulation to not anticipate about clothes, and you adulation to attending acceptable while (not) accomplishing it, again the abridged is for you. I agreement it.

    A brace of years ago my bedmate appointed me a “capsule apparel advisor” as a altogether present. I wasn’t THAT affronted and yes, this is a absolute job! We were in the bosom of acceptable absolutely minimalist and accepting apprehend of AGGREGATE that didn’t “spark joy.” (aka – we alive in London and houses accept NO storage, like not alike closets and with a sister that can get me up to 75% abatement at all Gap Accumulation shops, I had a accouterment problem). One of the best things the adviser did, besides appearance me how to dress to my anatomy type, was to authorize my colours! We again looked at my best abject aloof colours to body a abridged apparel around. Afterwards we looked at added fun accents to add, but alone one or two at best and consistently baby capacity alone (think scarves, jewelry, etc)! She additionally emphasised the charge to buy affection and that does beggarly spending more. To this day I still alone accept two pairs of jeans, three jumpers, three button downs, three long-sleeve shirts, three abbreviate sleeve shirts, two dresses, one brace of dress slacks. I go arcade maybe 1-2 times per year. I can actually dress myself in the aphotic and apperceive that it will all match. It additionally helps me beacon bright of actuation “but that looks so fun” Zara purchases b/c the colour is amiss and I apperceive it will be out of appearance in about 2.4 nanoseconds. It absolutely takes time and diligence, and does crave a bit of advance to get pieces that will last, but the end aftereffect is AMAZING!! Acceptable luck!!!
