As it is coming in to a new season shortly (come on Spring!), and I also never updated you guys on my Winter Wardrobe, I thought I'd put together a post on what I currently have in my wardrobe. I have a weird way of keeping track of the pieces I own and different ways I could style them by saving an image of the item (or one very similar) in a folder on my laptop labelled 'Capsule Wardrobe' and every so often I'll style up some outfit collages on Photoshop. Is that really sad? :P
However, I find it great to have a system to keep track of pieces you own so you can see an overview of your wardrobe instead of having to physically look through everything you own. That can get messy. When I'm thinking of investing in something new, I'll find an image, pop it in the folder, and see if it goes with the other pieces. Anyway, here's a look at the 40 pieces in my current Capsule Wardrobe.
11 Tops : This doesn't include basics like plain t-shirts and vest tops. It consists of turtle necks, jumpers, my plaid shirt, and a few blouses. It's a nice mix of casual and dressy.
8 Bottoms: This mainly consists of jeans, but I have a few pairs of leggings (normal and flared) and a couple of skirts.
2 one-pieces: a basic cami dress and dungarees. I also do have one other dress in my wardrobe currently but I don't wear it very often so I'm leaving it in my occasion wear section (which doesn't get included in the capsule wardrobe - it's never very many items anyway).
8 outerwear: Coats, jackets and cardigans. See my post on my Minimal Coat Collection HERE.
9 shoes: A mix of casual flats, dressy flats, boots, heeled boots etc. I don't include any heels because again they are more occasion wear.
2 bags: a black one and a red one. The only other one I could possibly
need (want) would be leopard print.
I'll be doing my best to keep the number of items I own in my wardrobe down, but I do plan on making a few new pieces for DIY posts sooo don't judge me for that :P It's for a good cause. I do tend to swap them out for another item if I wear them a lot or pass them on (charity shop or depop) if I don't use/wear it as much as I thought. How are you guys getting on with your Capsule Wardrobes if you've started one? How many pieces are in yours? Maybe I could challenge myself to have even less.
