Capsule wardrobe - what clothes to choose?

Capsule wardrobe - what clothes to choose?

The end of the year is the time when we start to think intensively about what to give our loved ones for Christmas. It often happens that we simply run out of ideas, but it is always worth moving away from the patterns. Especially if the recipient has a fairly well-defined taste or if we know that when choosing elements of his wardrobe, he uses the very popular concept of a capsule wardrobe.

Clothing as a Christmas gift always in fashion - how to avoid the pitfalls?

The clothing industry always records an increase in sales at the end of the year, around the holidays. And in principle, it is not surprising - in many cases, it is the various items of clothing that are chosen as gifts for loved ones. Unfortunately, due to lack of ideas or time, we often fall into the trap of buying very trivial gifts such as socks or underwear. Although they are practical, the recipient may feel the lack of our commitment. On the other hand - probably everyone has bought or received a wrong gift, for example a not very flattering, thick sweater with a Christmas motif or a heavy coat that does not necessarily match the style worn.

So how do you avoid such pitfalls? First of all, it is worth taking a look at the preferences of the person to whom we want to buy a gift - here it will be important to note the favorite styles and colors. Certainly, elegant accessories, such as a soft and elegant scarf or a warm hat, will be a safe purchase. Guided by the philosophy of the capsule wardrobe, we can also bet on timelessness, i.e. always fashionable, light sweaters - preferably in neutral colors or earth tones. Such a choice is the certainty that the person close to us will be satisfied and will actually use the given item of clothing to create everyday stylizations.

What is a capsule wardrobe and why is it so popular nowadays?

The aforementioned concept of a capsule wardrobe has been known for several decades and is now an increasingly visible fashion trend. In the 1970s, the term was popularized by Susie Faux, the owner of a London boutique called "Wardrobe", and in 1985, the American designer Donna Karan developed a collection of corresponding clothes that could be freely combined to create very consistent and practical stylizations. Initially, this concept was primarily aimed at office workers and was mainly intended to reduce clothing expenses and reduce the time needed to get dressed in the morning. Currently, the trend of the capsule wardrobe, based on minimalism, is also one of the most valuable tools for promoting slow fashion, which allows you to oppose the disastrous e.g. fast fashion for the environment.

How to choose clothes according to the capsule wardrobe philosophy?

This concept is based on several rules, the implementation of which allows, above all, to organize the contents of our wardrobe, get rid of the habit of buying clothes on impulse or store dresses, blouses or skirts to which we have a sentiment. The key to building a capsule wardrobe, in addition to the need to match it to the type of skin and body shape, are:


Defining primary colors and complementary colors will allow you to create a scheme according to which we will buy our clothes. Black, white, navy blue, gray or earth colors are the best base to help you compose everyday, consistent styling.


In the case of cuts, we focus primarily on timeless cuts and clothes that never go out of fashion, as well as those in which we feel comfortable. However, we do not have to give up on temporary trends completely, leaving room for one or two "seasonal" items in the wardrobe.


The timelessness of cuts always goes hand in hand with the high quality of clothes, and clothing in this case is a kind of investment, so it is worth reaching for dresses, trousers, jackets or sweaters from the higher shelf. Thanks to this, we will create elegant, consistent and never out of fashion stylizations, which is the clou of the entire capsule wardrobe concept.
