Create the Capsule Wardrobe- 3 Basic Steps*

STEP 1. Pre-weed and prep your closet of old, unwanted garments.

  • remove all clothing from closet and drawers.
  • immediately, get rid of things that you have not worn in over a year. 
  • get/use matching hangers!!

STEP 2. Keep the essential 50 pieces in your wardrobe.

  • 50 pieces (Start with 10 bottoms, 10 basic tops, 13 shoes, 7 layerable tops like cardigans or suit coats, 2 outdoor jackets, 5 dresses, 3 trend items like scarves). Adjust to your preferences. Keep unlimited bras, undergarments, tights and socks.)

OR

  • modify by using 1/3 of your total starting closet content (I, personally, do the modified version because I like more shoe options) 

REMEMBER

  • change each season (about every 3 months) 

STEP 3. Make a shopping list. 

  • note the gaps in your wardrobe
  • note trend/seasonal items that you are interested in adding

*Keep in Mind: 

  • store things you may yet use/want in a bin out of eyesight (for peace and calm)
  • if your body is experiencing rapid, temporary change (Pregnancy, a medication adjustment, an operation, etc, you may store items longer than 1 year)

 

Reflect & Re-Create

  1. What worked? 
  2. What did not work? 
  3. Why?
  4. How did it feel each day? Overall? 

 

OVERWHELMED? Need a friendly JUMPSTART?

While weeding the closet can SOUND easy-peasy, the truth is that we have a LOT of emotion attached to our clothing and image. Sometimes, taking the first step is the hardest part. 

THAT is where I come into play. To get the personal support of a friend, with the professional knowledge of an image consultant, I can help you walk through this process and streamline your life.
