How to build a capsule wardrobe

Text by Mirjana Bernstorf

If you’re struggling to close the doors of your closet, and your denim jacket lies crumpled between long-forgotten winter jumpers, it’s probably time to think about reducing your collection – and, by doing so, raising your fashion game. Treat your wardrobe to a makeover! And why not start by putting together a capsule collection for this winter? The basic principle isn’t new, but it’s very smart. All you need to do is build a capsule wardrobe consisting of no more than 37 items per season (including shoes and accessories, but without underwear, socks and sportswear). Each item should be high quality, durable and a team player, i.e., work well with other items to create new looks. In theory, you should be able to reach blind into your closet in the morning and pull out a great outfit. The aim is to style as many looks as possible with a limited number of pieces – and to purchase only very well-considered new pieces. At the end of this process, you should have numerous ready-to-go outfits that are a perfect reflection of your personal style – as well as the invaluable feeling of knowing you’ve got your life under control.

Five tips for your very own reduced collection

Step 1: The first step to a capsule wardrobe is the toughest: to conduct a ruthless inventory of your closet. Set aside some time and carefully go through all the contents, inspecting each item of clothing, shoes and accessories. Try things on. Does it still fit? Does it need alterations? Sort everything into three categories:

  • Keep: separate into fancy favourites and basics; alter as required, either yourself or take it to a tailor.
  • Store: for the warmer (or colder) season ahead.
  • Discard: sell, donate or recycle.

    Step 2:
    The purpose of a capsule wardrobe is to make life easier and underscore your personal look. To achieve this, first define your favourite pieces. Pick the clothes that fit you well and in which you feel comfortable and completely yourself – like a great blazer or a pair of wide-legged pants. These are the hero pieces in your wardrobe, and can easily be combined with all kinds of basics.

  • Step 3: The principle of a capsule wardrobe is easier if you focus on neutral shades, black (or navy), white and grey, as these can be easily combined. Selected highlight pieces and accessories add some colour – but only if and when you want.

  • Step 4: Next, start compiling individual looks and trying out different combinations. You should soon realise if there’s a particular item missing in your personal collection. Consider carefully which pieces you want to invest in this season, and how these could be combined: can you create at least five outfits with them? Especially basics that are washed frequently should be high-quality so that they last. Repeat steps 1 to 4 at the beginning of the next season. This way, you always have exactly the clothes you need for the season and climate.

  • Step 5: The essential items in a capsule wardrobe depend entirely on your own style: what do you wear most often and feel best in? Here’s a list of no-brainer combination heroes, most of which work across seasons: white T-shirt, oversized shirt, Breton shirt, knitted jumper, blazer, blue jeans, black trousers, classic coat or trench, white sneakers, black boots.
