Creating a Capsule wardrobe
Leela & Lavender Style
Capsule wardrobes have been a trending topic in the fashion space for the better half of the past year. Curating your wardrobe to fit your lifestyle and fashion aesthetic can feel like a daunting task, however it can be simplified by catering to the idea of creating your own capsule wardrobe.
What is a capsule wardrobe?
To start, what is a capsule wardrobe? A capsule wardrobe is essentially a personally curated selection of pieces that fundamentally all compliment each other and can be put together in various ways to create different outfits. These pieces are essentially a variety of timeless, chic closet staples that can be exchanged season to season, then used again the next. These should be pieces you LOVE and include a variety of tops, bottoms, shoes, dresses, and accessories.
Why we love it
Instead of being based on quantity, you're filling your wardrobe with quality. Investing in pieces you love verses filling your closet with pieces you will only wear a handful of times.
