Interesting Reasons You Might Want to Create a Capsule Wardrobe

During the 1970s, London boutique owner, Susie Faux, came up with the term capsule wardrobe, a collection of few essential clothing items that can be worn repeatedly by simply interchanging them. Designer Donna Karan caught up on it and released her own version in the mid-80s with her seven interchangeable work-wear pieces. It became a hit. Today, there are still celebrities who are also known to dress this way, such as, Angelina Jolie, Mark Zuckerberg and Karl Lagerfeld. Find out why you might want to create a capsule wardrobe.

  1. It saves you time.

With only a few pieces of clothes to choose from, a capsule wardrobe cuts down the time you spend picking the perfect clothing for the day. There are those days when you simply find it difficult to find what to wear and you end up trying several pieces. This will not happen if there are few items to choose from. It saves you time in dressing up.

  1. Costs Less.

Some people are just practical while others want to make wise decisions and cut down on wardrobe costs. Wardrobe clothing makes this possible since you don’t need to buy clothes as often. If you love shopping for expensive clothes, it can put a dent in your bank account. Conversely, if you buy few pieces even if they cost high, you can still save on your purchases.

Creating a capsule wardrobe has other benefits like less stress and simplicity. It can also give you more peace of mind since it will make your life decisions less complicated.
