A capsule wardrobe allows you to have a very limited selection of clothes, which will allow you to get the best value for your dollar.
Many men don’t shop for clothes for themselves without a plan. Shop for clothes the same way you shop for groceries. It’s as if you aren’t carrying a grocery list. As you stroll down the aisle you grab whatever ingredient looks good.
When you get home, you find your groceries. A few apple slices. It’s simple to prepare a meal.
This is what most people do when they shop to buy clothes.
A capsule wardrobe is similar in concept to going to the supermarket with a shopping cart.
Everything you could need, like the perfect Italian recipe, is included. Everything works together, so there’s not much waste.
This Is What It Does:
Your closet will look cleaner if you only buy what you need. You’ll also stop purchasing clothes that aren’t necessary.
It’s Much Easier To Dress!
Do you remember what the whole analysis paralysis was? You’ll find that it is easier to choose something that you like.
It’s Not Necessary To Follow The Latest Trends
A capsule wardrobe should consist of timeless and easily adaptable pieces. You don’t have to follow the latest trends. Your capsule will outlast fashion trends.
What’s The Perfect Capsule Wardrobe For?
1. The Timeless, Classic Designs
This classic look was fashionable 50-years ago and is likely to be trendy 50 years later.
Trendiest clothing is not always the most fashionable. Our wardrobe doesn’t need to be constantly updated. A capsule wardrobe should consist of simple, classic pieces. The white tee. The dark wash denim jeans. The navy blazer.
2. Versatile Pieces
A few extra clothes are necessary to ensure you have enough options when choosing pieces that can serve double or even triple duty. You want your jacket to look great on a date, as well as be suitable for work.
The Ultimate Starter Capsule Wardrobe
- 2 Jackets (one formal, one casual).
- 8 T-shirts/shirts
- 2 pants: One casual, one more dressy
- 2 pairs of shoes: one casual, one dressier
- 8 pairs of Underwear(Men’s Pouch Underwear)
- 8 pairs of socks
Here’s a breakdown of the starter capsule wardrobe.
2 Jackets: One Casual And One Blazer.
You need to be versatile when you create a capsule closet. You should chose the navy blazer as your starter piece. This jacket is versatile enough for important meetings and occasions, but can also easily be worn down with jeans or a tee. There are many choices for casual jackets. A well-made, elegant and stylish leather jacket is my favorite. This jacket can be worn to the office because it can be matched with many different items.
T-shirts make a great capsule wardrobe staple. While t-shirts are more casual than a button-up, they’re still smarter than a top.
Workwear can be accomplished with button-ups in a mix of striped, pale, or blue oxfords. This versatile shirt in blue, chambray cotton denim is great to layer under a blouse or over chinos or boots.
The light-washed Jeans are great for summer weekends. More versatility will be offered by darker jeans. Darker denim will look more serious and can be worn to school. Denim that is darker in color will make you feel more serious and intimidating. Dark blue denim doesn’t look too heavy, so you can easily mix and match.
Two Pairs Of Shoes (1Pair Of Sneakers In Minimal Black, And 1 Pair Of Leather Boots In Dark Black)
The minimalistic white shoe is becoming a key item in the wardrobe of modern men. Because of their simplicity and relaxed dress codes, sneakers can be worn to the office.
