Capsule wardrobes are not for me, the thought of them are very restrictive. Lets call it the bare bones of a wardrobe, the essentials everyone needs to get through all the seasons. In a world constantly discussing capsule wardrobes and Marie Kondo (granted I am guilty of talking of the MK) , it got me thinking about the idea of a capsule wardrobe. It is a fabulous idea in theory. Like Steve Jobs having an uniform so that it is one less thing to think about in the morning, to make him more efficient. For me that would be so restricive.
But I think there are 15 items in my opinion that everyone needs to make a fabulous outfit. I have not included any dresses because to me a dress is an outfit that is ready made, and the problem we all face when it comes to dressing is when we have to pop on more than one item of clothing. Am I right? I thought I would share with you some of my essentials, all of them are super affordable and I have had most of these items for years and they all survived my wardrobe cull after watching Marie K’s show.
