Tips for creating a capsule wardrobe
My tried and tested tips on how to extend your closet further by building a capsule wardrobe of core essentials to mix and match. Featuring key items across clothing, shoes, and accessories for all seasons to make sure you have in your closet. The capsule is designed to mix and match to create endless outfits for the office or the weekend.
With a focus on mindful shopping and sustainable practices in fashion, every little bit counts. Gone are the days where wearing an outfit more than once is a faux-pas. The future of fashion lies in smart consumption and it lies with the consumer. Why banish a beautiful item to the depths of your closet? Wear it over and over and wear it proudly!
Versatility and comfort are key
All capsule wardrobe items are chosen with versatility in mind. Many pieces are grounded in neutral tones, comfortable cuts, and beautiful natural fabrics. Avoid wasting money on fashion trends by shopping with a purpose and create a capsule wardrobe that suits your lifestyle. Let me help you find a capsule wardrobe that works for you.
A focus on sustainability where possible
With Inspiring Wit I strive to find the best in wearable fashion online and in-store options across different budgets for busy modern women. I try out stores and brands who have not only beautiful design aesthetics but who place importance on creating sustainable clothing. Some are small brands that employ and support local artisans, some use organic or natural fibers, some manufacture on a larger scale but do so under sustainable practices. Many are adopting new ways of manufacturing that reduces their footprint, I love to try those options out.
Personally, I prefer the feeling of natural fibers on my skin. Comfort is key for me, it makes me confident and I want that for you too! While not every piece of clothing I wear comes from a fully sustainable brand, taking those small steps, and adopting an 80/20 approach means every little bit counts.
Helpful tips for getting dressed without a fuss
Getting dressed in the past would cause me a lot of stress. I’d be flustered, overwhelmed, and in the end, always running late. Why? I had a wardrobe of items that were amazing but didn’t really go together. I lacked cohesion and it stressed me out. So I decided to downsize and build a capsule wardrobe of staple items that I could effortlessly mix and match. It saved me time and space too. I realised I didn’t need as much as I thought.
Of course, fashion has to be a little fun, too, so I bear that in mind. I hope the capsule wardrobe series helps you find an approachable and easy way of getting ready in the morning.
