I felt empowered and far more creative. And I shopped a hell of a lot less. These are my takeaways having lived with a Clothing Capsule Closet for the past few months. Technically, this closet was supposed to last from March – May, which it has. But today, May 23, I’m working toward transitioning into my June – August Capsule. Because the winter white cashmere cable-knit feels silly to wear now (but it totally worked in March). Here’s my MARCH clothing calendar of the outfits I wore in March. The blank days mean I was in lounge wear or workout clothes all day.
SORRY, WHAT NOW?
A clothing capsule as I’m describing it is simply a cleared out closet, filled only with your favorite items that you’ll reach for throughout a specified seasonal window (3 months).
AND WHY THE FCUK?
So you don’t keep grabbing for the same damn outfit. So you don’t buy another black top or pair of jeans, so you don’t constantly feel like you’re working, in putting yourself together. So you can grab and go and get more creative with your favorite pieces. You know, clothes that actually fit, things you actually love, but never would’ve thought to pair together.
MY MARCH – MAY CLOSET CAPSULE (45 ITEMS)
And now I must remove everything from my closet and build it again for these next warmer months, determining what I “need.” This doesn’t mean I need to shop. It means I get to create a brand new wardrobe of my favorite summer things, things that had been stored away and will now be showcased in a capsule window.
You can tell, I’m a lover of J.Crew.
