A week’s worth of looks using capsule wardrobe

So I thought I’d do a bit of an update on the capsule wardrobe and how its working out. I’ve been using it for about a month now and here’s what I think:

  • It really does make things a lot easier when you can see everything at a glance. You don’t need to scratch, everything stays mostly neat. I’m enjoying that aspect a lot.
  • I tend to have go to outfits. The way I dress is pretty simple anyway, I’m very much a ‘jeans and t-shirt’ dresser, but its nice to be able to just pull out pieces that make sense without needing to think about it too much.
  • I haven’t really felt the urge to shop. This is amazing for me, because I never need an excuse to shop. But when I look at the clothes in the stores I think that’s nice, but I don’t need it. This is a mind set change that happened far quicker than I anticipated…

Here a a few looks I’ve put together so far. I found I went for the simplest options first, so now I need to start getting a bit more creative…
