How to Create a Wardrobe You Can Count on
Hi, I'm Jeanine...
If you're like me, you want to make getting dressed simpler and easier, but you also want to feel confident about the outfits you create & enjoy what you see in the mirror.
I used to think that in order to really feel good about my wardrobe, I needed an Oprah closet. Not that I have seen it up close, but I've imagined celebrity closets to be gargantuan.
Closets that have such an overwhelming assortment of choices, you could get lost in them. Then, I thought, surely I would have everything I need to look fabulous, but be comfortable, and the only problem would be remembering where I'd put everything.
But then I got sold on the idea of capsule wardrobes, and of filling them with a smaller number of clothes I genuinely loved, that loved me back.
Capsule wardrobe is a term coined by Susie Faux, the owner of a London boutique, in the 1970s. According to Faux, a capsule wardrobe is a collection of a few essential items of clothing that never go out of style, ... which can then be augmented with seasonal pieces. - Wikipedia
The Modern-Day Capsule Wardrobe
Over the years, the concept of the capsule wardrobe has come to refer to a mix and match core wardrobe - a collection of pieces, in coordinating colors, that maximize the number of outfits that can be created.
One common suggestion is to create a collection with a color palette of neutral colors and then, choose accent colors each season to create a fresh, new capsule. But you also can create a wardrobe of basics that blends neutrals and vibrant accent colors from the very beginning.
