How Do I Look? SA season two is on it's way to our screens, and as you know that's one show that gives the best advice when it comes to how to have an amazing wardrobe. In the spirit of celebrating great closets, we have put together some cool tips on creating a capsule closet.
Creating a capsule doesn’t have to be daunting. To assist you on the journey to making better purchasing decisions and better outfit choices, we’ve made a list of three simple steps to follow when attempting to streamline your wardrobe to just 37 items.
STEP ONE: Get rid of clothes that don’t fit
As women, we love to hold onto ill-fitting clothes; and often tell ourselves that we’ll fit into it when we reach our ‘goal weight’. So when creating a fully functional capsule closet, the first step should be to put aside, throw away or donate clothes that you don’t fit into.
STEP TWO: Make a list
Once you’ve gotten rid of all the clothing items you don’t wear, you can start making a list of all the items that you need to buy for your season-specific wardrobe. Traditionally, capsule wardrobes consist of 8 tops, 7 outerwear pieces, 1 staple dress, 7 bottoms (including skirts, short, and pants) and 10 pairs of shoes. Keep in mind, that you can switch up this formula to suit your lifestyle and personal style.
STEP THREE: Go online
Coming up with different outfits with only 37 pieces of clothing to choose from can be tough. So, whip out your phone, or open your laptop and trawl the Internet for outfit inspiration and ideas.
