Today, I'd like to continue on the subject of minimalism. However, today’s focus is on the clothing so many of us collect. Wardrobes can quickly become overwhelming, full of items we never wear or that don't fit. It can be hard to get rid of clothes, though, when you've invested your time and money into obtaining them. In addition, our clothes are often a part of our identity. That being said, I can assure you that parting with some of your out-of-control clothing stash will allow you to uncover a new sense of lightness and empowerment. Minimalism with clothing focuses around the idea of the capsule wardrobe. A capsule wardrobe is a small collection of clothing items meant to mix and match with each other in order to make getting dressed easier, faster, and less confusing.
Less Stress to Get Dressed
Let's face it, you'll definitely feel less stressed out when you have fewer items to choose from when you're getting dressed in the morning. A capsule wardrobe provides just a few options, all which work really well together. All you have to do is grab a few items and go, knowing that they will match and fit well because you have a smaller inventory to keep track of.
Sure, your new wardrobe will be smaller in size, but that doesn't mean it won't have your special touch. You can still choose basics for your aesthetic, along with some key accessories that radiate your unique style. It's easy to make a wardrobe uniquely yours when it's minimalistic, because each piece must be chosen with care. In fact, you're likely to gain a truer sense of your authentic style and learn what works for you when you take time to choose pieces purposefully.
Saves Time and Money
You'll be out the door in minutes when you can take a quick visual inventory of your closet and grab a couple pieces that suit your mood that day. In terms of money, saving money on clothes has never been easier than it is with the capsule wardrobe technique. You'll also have less waste, knowing you've put extensive thought into the coordination of your basic wardrobe foundation.
A smaller wardrobe also means saving time and hassle on laundry. This is because so many of the pieces can be mix and match, which allows you to wear certain items more than once in a week. You'll also save money on dry cleaning if your capsule wardrobe contains fine fabric.
These are just some of the main advantages of having a capsule wardrobe. Minimizing your wardrobe can go a long way toward helping you feel calmer. Not only that, but it’s a lot of fun!
