‘Capsule Wardrobe’ was definitely trend du jour (or will that be trend du an) for 2016. We saw many a YouTuber and noteworthy fashion bloggers tackle this subject showing us how to build them, the staples and how to transition and maintain fluidity from season to season. What is a Capsule Wardrobe? According to trusted Wikipedia
‘Capsule wardrobe is a term coined by Susie Faux, the owner of a London boutique called “Wardrobe” in the 1970s. According to Faux, a capsule wardrobe is a collection of a few essential items of clothing that don’t go out of fashion, such as skirts, trousers, and coats, which can then be augmented with seasonal pieces.’
The Anna Edit is one of my favourite YouTube channels because I just do like Anna (well she is a great English YouTuber) and how clean her fashion aesthetic is. She gives a great guide on how to create a functional Capsule Wardrobe.
Here are a few more videos to help you with creating that wardrobe:
As we go into 2017, we set goals, we clean out our closets and start afresh for the dawn of a new 365 days, a time to ‘begin again’ and with this we might decide to go the Minimalist route (another trend set alight in 2016 by social media influences) and being minimalist goes together with building Capsule Wardrobes.
