TIP — Invest in 3 or 4 good quality bras and take good care of them. It’s worth the expense. Your back, breasts, shoulders and ribs will thank you!
CREATING YOUR CAPSULE WARDROBE
*Create a Pinterest board and add pics of existing pieces from your wardrobe that are in good condition and flatter your body. This will help you to get a better visual than simply laying them all out on your bed. You’ll be able to quickly identify what pieces work best together.
*Delete and donate pieces that don’t fit your needs.
*Acquire new pieces to fill in gaps. Before purchasing, pin them to your board and give it a two day cool down period to be sure they work with your other items.
*Be prepared to dedicate a few hours to this process over the course of a couple of weeks. A few minutes here and there is all it takes.
MAINTAINING YOUR CAPSULE WARDROBE
*Replace damaged/worn/dated items twice per year. Once before the cold season and once before the warm season.
*This should be a quick process only taking an hour or so to place your online orders.
*Increase longevity of your capsule by…
…changing into loungewear when returning home
…wearing an apron for tasks such as washing dishes, cleaning, preparing food, crafts and DIY
…wearing items multiple times before washing, unless they are soiled.
…investing in higher quality items and caring for them. (Owning less clothing means you can spend a bit more on each piece.)
*Each day that you get dressed, reach your hands blindly into your closet and grab whatever your hand lands on because everything already coordinates.
*You’re going to love how much time you’ll save. Time that can be focused on important things, rather than feeling bad that a skirt you’re hanging onto doesn’t fit, or that you don’t know what sweater to pair with your favorite trousers.
