Capsule wardrobes are all the rage lately, and with good reason. Not sure what a capsule wardrobe is? Let us introduce you...but be warned, they're addicting.
A capsule wardrobe is a subset of a full wardrobe, consisting of a limited number of pieces that are restyled in several ways in order to produce a set amount of outfits or looks. For example, one of the most common capsule wardrobe types is a 10 x 10 capsule, where you use only 10 pieces to style 10 outfits. Some folks include shoes, bags, and accessories into it, and some don't.
One of the reasons that capsule wardrobes are so popular, and also super important is that they challenge you to re-think your styling in order to produce the maximum amount of put-together looks without blowing up your budget or over-stuffing your closet. Learning how to style pieces this way, flexing their appeal and versatility muscles, is such a valuable skill to have. It saves you money in a way since instead of buying 5 so-so, low-quality, low-cost pieces that will fall apart after a few wears/washes, you have the confidence and know-how to invest in a single, high quality piece that will last you decades to come.
What we've put together is a 10 x 16 capsule wardrobe, so 10 unique pieces from our core (never out of style) collection, mixed and matched to create 16 unique, stylish, completely put-together looks. The challenge in creating a realistic capsule wardrobe is achieving the flexibility to have a wide enough variety of outfit styles that you don't have any gaps. For example, if you have an active nightlife, make sure to include a few going out looks. If you work in an office, keep the business casual pieces in rotation. If you are constantly running between picking kids up from school, yoga, and meetings, keep your active lifestyle and comfort level in mind.
So enough chit chat, here it is. We've rounded up all 10 pieces into a shoppable collection that you can browse here.
