Simplify and Slay: A Guide to Creating Your Capsule Wardrobe

Ever found yourself buried under a mountain of clothes when you opened your wardrobe? Yet, there you are, still thinking, "I have nothing to wear!"

The truth is, you have more clothes than you need. But only a few that you will happily rotate regularly.

It's time to declutter and switch to minimalism with a capsule wardrobe!

What is a capsule wardrobe?

A capsule wardrobe has essential items you can mix and match to create several outfits. It has versatile, timeless pieces that'll never get out of style or your taste.

Next, we'll share tips on how to create a capsule wardrobe. You'll also find a list of capsule wardrobe essentials.

How to Create a Capsule Wardrobe for Women?

Women are picky, especially when it comes to choosing their outfits. According to studies, women only wear 20% of all their clothes. The rest just sit there waiting to get lucky.

So, why splurge? If there are only a few select clothes you'll always wear, let's make it a capsule wardrobe!

Know Your Style

There's no point in hoarding sneakers if you're a stiletto girl. So, analyze your style and make a list of items that you'll wear and flaunt happily on repeat.

The following three questions will help you get there:

  • What is my main activity?
  • How do I spend my spare time?
  • What are my wardrobe staples?

Bonus Tip: Closely observe what you wear for a month (and make a list) to know your style.

Closet Decluttering!

Empty your closet and find your capsule items - they are already there.

You don't have to stick to a number. Just pick the items that make you happy, chic, and comfortable. These are your go-to clothes.

Categorize whatever doesn't fit in your happy everyday wear pile into the following:

  • Let go - anything that doesn't fit, you don't like, or is worn out!
  • Formal wear - dresses, suits, and the like.
  • Seasonal wear - coats, boots, beach dresses, hats, scarves.
  • Occasional/Statement pieces - sparkly dresses, bold jewelry.

You can also set your wardrobe according to the season. For example, a summer capsule wardrobe will have all your airy summer dresses, tops, and shorts.

Plan Outfits with What You Have

Your capsule wardrobe is waiting to style you!

Spending hours deciding on an outfit can drain you mentally. Save yourself the drama and plan! You can take outfit inspiration from Instagram and Pinterest! 

Bonus Tip: Hang your favorite clothing items, shoes, and accessories on the coat hanger for an outfit of the day inspo!

Shop for the Gaps

The golden rule of shopping (and minimalism) is to buy quality over quantity! Instead of buying ten cheap tees in every color, go for two good-quality ones that are versatile and durable.

If you miss having something in your wardrobe, check if it aligns with your style and fits into your capsule collection. If yes, then go for it!

Capsule Wardrobe Checklist

The big question - what to add to a capsule wardrobe?

Here are your wardrobe soulmates:


Pick only the most comfortable and well-fitting ones. They should pair well with most of your tops and be able to stick with you year-round.

Skirts, shorts, pants, and trousers in cotton, linen, and wool make great capsule wardrobe staples.

For jeans, keep a classic blue or black pair - no disappointments!


These can be anything from basic tees to statement blouses, depending on your style.

Basic tank tops and camisoles in neutral colors like black, white, gray, and navy also make great layering pieces.


Choose a few dresses that you can transition well from day to night. Opt for styles that flatter your body type and suit your taste.


Invest in a good quality coat, jacket, and blazer in neutral colors like camel and black. These are timeless and versatile pieces that you can effortlessly layer over any outfit.


Don't forget the shoes! A good pair of sneakers, sandals, and loafers are smart additions. You can also add a pair of dressy heels for special occasions.


Simple and classic accessories like scarves, belts, and jewelry can elevate any outfit in your capsule wardrobe. Only keep the pieces that you can style with different outfits.
