Capsule Wardrobe

Feel like you just can’t build the perfect outfit or you don’t have the right clothing pieces to do so? Having staple items in your wardrobe is essential in curating a capsule wardrobe. If becoming more sustainable and more fashionable is a new year goal of yours, then a capsule wardrobe is a great place to start! Our team at Thrift World is excited to explain how to build a capsule wardrobe and give you ideas on how to integrate it into your life. 

What is a capsule wardrobe?

Building a capsule wardrobe is a great way to limit how much clothing you have. A capsule wardrobe will help you create multiple outfits with a single item. This doesn’t mean you can’t have fun and trendy pieces of clothing, but it does help you limit an overflowing closet and create a specific style for yourself. When starting, it is important to start with the basics like jeans, neutral shirts, blazers, knit sweaters and wool coats. 

How to organize

Finding what outfits make you feel comfortable and confident is the most important part of a capsule wardrobe. When finding what pieces you want to incorporate into your wardrobe, you should consider these things:

  • What items you gravitate toward the most
  • Basic items that can be worn multiple ways
  • Basic items that are seasonal
  • Statement pieces that can elevate your outfit

This process isn't meant to feel overwhelming. The goal is to pick out items that make you feel your best and that you can build an outfit off of for virtually any occasion. By starting your outfit off with a pair of jeans and a basic top that you love and gradually adding accessories or statements you have a curated outfit that is both minimalistic and chic.

How to thrift a capsule wardrobe

Slowly building your capsule wardrobe will lead you to having the most fashionable outfits. This process isn’t meant to be rushed. The best pieces to thrift are vintage jeans, jackets or statement pieces and accessories that you think will accentuate your staple items. This is a good time to look for jewelry, purses, coats and any other accessories that might amplify any basics that you tend to gravitate toward on a day-to-day basis. Thrifting these pieces is a good idea because there can be a variety of brand names and designers that you can come across.
