Capsule wardrobe – What does capsule wardrobe mean?

What is the Capsule Wardrobe? The so-called capsule wardrobe is a wardrobe with a particular organization whose goal is to have a limited number of clothing items.

How many autumn capsule wardrobe items?

An autumn capsule wardrobe contains, for each season, from 30 to 40 assorted items of clothing, including accessories. The fact of having a limited number of items of clothing means having to carefully choose items that can be combined with each other in order to always have a new look that is compatible with fashion.

Building a capsule wardrobe

How to create a capsule wardrobe

In recent years, the capsule wardrobe has become a very popular trend as it goes hand in hand with ecological trends that are increasingly becoming more important. A capsule wardrobe therefore offers a practical, sustainable and ecological approach to the world of fashion as well. To reduce the number of items of clothing it is essential to identify timeless and obviously quality pieces to have an effective, practical, long-lasting and therefore eco-sustainable wardrobe. Buying excellent quality clothing may seem expensive, but, over time, it proves to be the cheapest choice since the sweater, dress, hat, scarf and more purchased today will last us as new for years. At LaMamita, we consider eco-sustainable support applied to fashion to be essential.

What to have in the capsule closet?

The first step in creating a good capsule wardrobe is to evaluate the clothes you already own, choose the ones you usually wear and discard the others. You can donate discarded clothes to various associations, they will be recycled, thus helping those in need. Now that you’ve narrowed down your wardrobe, take a look at the colors of the items you’ve decided to keep. Based on these colors, you will then choose the new clothing items to buy to create your new capsule wardrobe.
