How to Build a Capsule Wardrobe That Will Last for Years, Oyster Bay, New York

Capsule wardrobes consist of a small number of clothing items that let the wearer create tons of different combinations. This helps you keep the closet manageable and wear every piece you own. Putting this together takes some planning, especially if you want it to last. Before you begin shopping for the perfect capsule wardrobe, consider these essential tips.

A Guide to Shopping for a Capsule Wardrobe

Stick With a Color Scheme

If you’re going to work with a limited number of items in the closet, most of them will need to go well together. This way, you can create different combinations with them for endless looks. First, figure out the colors you wear the most, whether it’s cool tones like blues and purples or warm shades like reds and yellows.

Emphasize Basics

A plain white blouse, a pair of dark wash jeans, and a simple black dress can all work with different accessories and situations. These essentials will let you mix and match with the color pieces and ensure you have an appropriate outfit for every event, whether it’s a weekend getaway with the girls or the weekly team meeting at work. 

Include Some Variety

If you’re shopping for a wardrobe that will last throughout the years, you’ll need it to work in different seasons and settings. Within the selected style and color scheme, have silhouettes and pieces that go with a variety of occasions, like blouses for work and date night, cardigans for cold offices and chilly evenings, and t-shirts you can dress up with skirts or pair with jeans for casual weekends.
