If your goal is to look fabulous in the upcoming fall season without spending way too much money or hitting your credit card’s limit, having a capsule wardrobe is key. You’ve probably heard about capsule wardrobes before but you have no idea how to have one your own.
Here are 5 ways you can still have your style be on point this fall with a capsule wardrobe so you won’t risk breaking the bank.
Review What You Already Have
Your closet may already be brimming with stylish pieces that you’ve gathered all throughout the years. Examine your closet now to see whether there are still clothes that you have rarely or not even used.
Your capsule wardrobe entails pieces that are classic and timeless so check to see which pieces in your closet have passed that criteria.
Schedule at least one day to really filter through your closet. There may be tops hanging around somewhere that you forgot you even have.
There may be other clothes that you could get tailored or styled for you to adapt to a new season. Needless to say, there are countless ways you can get creative on this.
Layer, Layer, Layer
Instead of continuously spending money on clothes, why not try reusing some of those you already have? This is absolutely possible when you layer. Plus, with the cooler weather, layering will help to keep you warm.
Layering is always fun to do if you’re a fashionista because it gets your creative and stylish juices flowing. Besides that, it also gives you the opportunity to reuse your seasonal clothes that would’ve been ignored and unused for a long time.
For example, take your summer dress that is a bit too short for work and for the cold weather. You can opt to pair it with work-appropriate leggings, and layer a coat or leather jacket over it, and you’re good to go. Capsule wardrobe tricks like this could make you look stylish and professional while still saving some money.
Sell, Swap, or Donate
As you do your closet review, have the intention to check if there are other pieces that don’t align with your style anymore or are just not fitting to your capsule wardrobe. After all, you may have outgrown some of them as well. Collect them all and decide whether you want to sell, swap, or donate them to your friends or any charities.
There are many apps and sites that allow you to do so. You can either sell them on Ebay or post them on Facebook groups or pages to see if anyone in your area or perhaps your friends or relatives are willing to swap or trade with you.
When you go inside these clothing stores, the abundance of options for you may seem overwhelming that it’ll tempt you to buy anything you set your eyes upon. Needless to say, you have to avoid impulsive buying.
Only go to these stores when you have the intention of buying something that you have already done research to see if there are no better options. Additionally, only buy clothes that you really think you’re going to use more than once and are able to mix and match with any of your existing pieces.
That’s really the technique of building your capsule wardrobe. You only purchase pieces that can be paired with many different pieces in your existing closet, so that you won’t have to buy and buy every single time.
other valuable tips:
It is highly recommended for you to invest in pieces that are really timeless for you to save money in the long run. Buying cheap trendy pieces may have you thinking you’re saving money now but the cost is still not beneficial for you when these trendy pieces are labeled as “not in” anymore. This will then force you to buy and spend more.
With a capsule wardrobe filled with neutral-colored, classic pieces that you can pair with each other, you will literally look like you bought countless pieces for your fall wardrobe when in reality, you just styled them differently.
Be creative and resourceful enough when it comes to stocking up for your fall wardrobe. There’s no need to buy more if you believe your closet is already filled with pieces that you can style and layer in so many ways.
Building your own capsule wardrobe with timeless pieces that can be mixed and matched in various ways is definitely key to looking stylish without breaking the bank this fall.
