Cultivating the Perfect Capsule Wardrobe

I’d like to think we’ve recently began entering the time of simplistic and minimalistic living.  Whether that’s in our home décor, our food selection, our way of living or our wardrobe. Lately I’ve been thinking a lot about building a capsule wardrobe.  A collection of pieces that are so versatile, they can be taken from day to night and even from Summer to Fall.  I’ve spoken time and time again about having pieces in your wardrobe that are basic necessities.  Pieces that are simple and easily create a look!

 

If you don’t know too much about a Capsule Wardrobe the basis is this; a collection of essential items of clothing that will always remain in style.  Pieces that can be paired together seasonally and situationally to create timeless looks.  Essentially shopping for style not necessarily trends and creating a wardrobe from those pieces.  These are pieces you want to make sure are quality – perhaps instead of buying the basic white t-shirt from Forever 21, purchase it from Zara. If you’re interested in what pieces I think are needed to cultivate a simple and versatile capsule wardrobe then keep reading because I’m breaking down my 25 pieces needed to create the perfect (and perhaps somewhat Parisian) capsule wardrobe.

I hope this was helpful for those of you looking to cultivate your perfect capsule wardrobe and remember ladies; when shopping for the basics for your wardrobe remember that a “basic” is something you can wear over and over again, something that is easily paired with items you already own, and is a staple in fashion (and your wardrobe) not a trend!
