Capsule Wardrobes | MINIMALISM

Even with plenty of research, it’s hard to form a capsule wardrobe after finally solidifying your style. Here a few tips for those who – like me – are building up their wardrobe.

Impulse shopping isn’t helpful at all to your capsule closet. One easy way to regulate your purchases and consequently your wardrobe – is to keep lists. Keep a list of items you want and have in your closet so that you don’t overspend and overindulge. It keeps you in check and aids you in evaluating your wardrobe choices.

Here’s my list (I’m still in the process of improving it):


  • 6 Plain round necks t-shirts (short sleeve/long sleeve)
  • 3 Tops
  • 1 Dress
  • 2 Jackets
  • 1 Coat
  • 1 Sweater
  • 2 Jeans
  • 1 Trackpant
  • 1 Trouser
  • 1 Shoe
  • 1 Heels
  • 1 Flip flop
  • 2 Hats


  • 1 Black bag
  • 1 Sling bag
  • 1 Watch
  • 1 Plain earrings

(This list will definitely expand.)

There are a few factors that determine what I purchase. I keep colors to a select few: most are black, white, or gray. My color scheme includes only charcoal, white, black, grey, taupe, salmon, peach, olive, khaki, and baby blue. I also generally buy a size larger than my own or even larger while purchasing t-shirts and never wear skin tight clothes: all my jeans are boyfriend jeans. Everytime I see a sale or see a tempting item I always ask myself: is this really my style? Remember, quality over quantity.
