In a context of ecological crisis, it becomes essential to review our consumption patterns. Responsible for 17 to 20% of water pollution in the world, the textile industry is strongly criticized. However, changing habits overnight seems tedious. How to be more respectful of the environment while wearing clothes in which you feel good? How to stay stylish without consuming too much?
In recent years, the concept of capsule wardrobe has become more democratic. The principle is simple: from about twenty pieces, build as many outfits as possible by mixing them.
We know, in a world where we are constantly pushed to consume, it can seem complicated, even boring. However, the capsule wardrobe has many advantages. No more unnecessary expenses for pieces that will end up forgotten in a dark corner of your dressing room, no more stress of having to choose between a thousand clothes!
But then, how do we do it?
First, analyze the pieces of your wardrobe that you wear the most, taking into account your lifestyle. What do you wear to work? Do you go out a lot? In general, how would you define your style? Your capsule wardrobe should be in tune with your everyday environment.
Secondly, choose your basics. Currently, most of the wardrobes that we see on social networks are mainly composed of minimalist basics. For us, these are essential parts because they are easy to mix. However, if you never wear a white t-shirt, why include it in your selection? The importance of the capsule wardrobe is to be able to wear the same pieces differently during the month.
Thirdly, choose key pieces. In our opinion, to avoid the boring side of the capsule wardrobe where the basics are repeated, it is important to include more extravagant pieces. These pieces will probably not be able to be incorporated into every outfit, but they will allow you to highlight your style.
Finally, give your wardrobe time to build. It is not necessary to limit yourself to 20 pieces, decorate your selection according to your desires and needs. Some trends are good to follow if they match you and are viable. The advantage of the capsule wardrobe is that by limiting the number of pieces purchased, you can invest in better quality clothes that will follow you over the years.
