Capsule Wardrobes

Updated: Mar 31, 2021

Capsule wardrobes are becoming increasingly popular for good reason. The idea is to have a small number of items that you really love, which you can mix and match with each other and with other basics in your wardrobe. You will reduce your consumption and waste, and simplify your wardrobe too. Here are a few ideas for mini capsule wardrobes that could work for different lifestyles. Remember, how 'formal' a design looks has as much to do with the fabric choice as the design itself! Click on each image to go to the source and see more pictures, or check out my Pinterest page.

Capsule 1: designs made with stretch fabrics and/or a loose fit, but still appropriate for many workplaces (with the right fabric choice)
