What’s a Capsule Wardrobe?

For a while now, I’ve been sort of infatuated with capsule wardrobes – and by infatuated, I mean both intrigued and a little scared. 

A capsule wardrobe is a curated set of clothing items that are designed to work well together in a mix-and-match way. Some women like to create a capsule wardrobe that they wear all the time, while other women create them for specific situations, such as a trip.

By creating and using a capsule wardrobe, you simplify your wardrobe and the process of getting dressed. You have to make fewer wardrobe decisions, but know that you look polished. You also may find you maximize your clothing budget. 

Here is an example of a simple capsule wardrobe featuring two tops, a pair of pants, a skirt and a shawl. (These pieces are all from the last two seasons of Ruby Ribbon collections.) These pieces give you six outfits. If you add in a few accessories, such as statement jewelry or a scarf or two, you will extend it into even more looks. 

I’m intrigued with capsule wardrobes because they seem so streamlined. Just a few pieces, some quick decisions and done! But they also scare me because I wonder if I might feel limited? Is just a handful of mix and match pieces enough to fulfill my fashion creativity?
