If you are someone who likes to look stylish and feel confident while staying true to your personal style at all times, a capsule wardrobe is just what you need. We know that most of us are guilty of hoarding unworn, low-quality clothes and shoes, but it is time you trim the fat and pare down your wardrobe to a small collection of pieces that you truly love and will feel great wearing. Ideally, your capsule wardrobe should be made up of items that are easy to style and mix and match, which will allow you to create multiple ouBits so that you don’t end up feeling like you are stuck in a fashion rut. Here are some tips that will help you do that:

  • Choose versatile pieces

While it may be tempting to include your favorite body-con dress and pointy toe heels, you need to think in terms of functionality when you choose the capsule wardrobe pieces. The best approach is to pick versatile items like basic t-shirts, jeans, denim jackets, trench coats, flats, sneakers and boots. These pieces can be styled in a myriad of ways and work for all seasons.

  • Ignore trends

You may have come across impeccably dressed fashion bloggers and their capsule wardrobe collections with styles and colors you would never dream of putting together. While it is okay to take some inspiration from them, you should avoid following these trends. The basic tenet of a capsule wardrobe is to work with what you have and to include pieces that you wouldn’t think twice before putting on.

  • Stay true to your own style

Whether you want to create a capsule wardrobe for a season or simply a vacation, you need to ensure that every piece of clothing, shoes and accessories you include matches your style. If your style tends to gravitate towards flirty, feminine shapes and silhouettes, you should include more dresses and skirts than jeans and trousers.

The Dream Dress designed by Lorelei Shellist is a must-have in any capsule wardrobe. It is stylish, versatile and flattering on all body types.
