Preparing your capsule wardrobe

Defining your style: an essential first step

As we want to obtain a dressing room that suits us, you have to start by defining your style : are you more girly, comfy, sporty, chic, trendy…? To find out, ask yourself what you look like on a daily basis: what is the outfit you wear the most to go to work? What do you wear on the weekend? Do you often go to events dressed? What do you wear for a night out on the town? Etc. The answers to these questions will let you know what you really wear, and therefore what your style is.

Sort your dressing room

When you know what your style is, you can sort out your wardrobe. Let it be said, it’s a bit rough, but it’s cathartic. Start by putting everything on your bed and create three piles: the “I love wearing it and I put it on often”, the “ok, I don’t wear it very often but I like it a lot” pile, and the “I didn’t even know I had it anymore / but why did I buy this” pile. You can store the first pile in your dressing room and throw away the last one. Regarding the “maybe” pile, you can keep it for a month: the pieces worn during this reprieve have the right to remain, the others not.

Take stock of their needs

Once sorted, you can calmly take stock of your needs. For example, if you have found that you wear your black sweater very often, maybe it would be a good idea to buy a second one? Be careful, this is no excuse for having an irresponsible shopping session!
