After that first step, it is time to begin planning your new capsule. First, choose the number of items you want in your capsule wardrobe & then, begin to create it, identifying and finding the things that are missing from your current wardrobe.
To help with this part of the task, the author gives you a download of ten neutral basics you may need.
Once your capsule wardrobe is complete, wear your new seasonal capsule wardrobe for at least three months. Then, use the last month to begin planning the next season’s iteration of your capsule wardrobe.
One of the reasons women own a lot of the wrong clothes is because they shop for stories they tell themselves about their lives, rather than their actual lives. - Jenn Mapp Bressan, Clothes the Deal: The Guide for Transformative Personal Style
In a toolkit, the author gives you a printable lifestyle worksheet to help offset that mistake. She also gives you a style quiz to help you discover your style persona.
In the book, she tells you what to do about color. She suggests 70% neutrals and 30% color & print, for your capsule wardrobe, and describes the neutral palette as the backdrop for any color you add to your wardrobe.
Neutral color ideas: grey, cream, brown, camel, olive, black & navy. One neat idea she mentions for choosing a color palette: use a favorite scarf as inspiration.
Style is the energy of multiple subtle elements that add up to a personal look with feeling. - Jenn Mapp Bressan
In the remainder of the book, she gives more of those multiple elements, including what might be the best one: a four-step process for outfit formulas.
I highly recommend it and have learned from it, myself.
