How to Create the Perfect Capsule Wardrobe

A capsule wardrobe is a neat and concise wardrobe, full of garments and accessories that suit one another, that can be thrown together with ease to create perfect outfits and also, it must contain items that you will wear regularly. In other words, a capsule wardrobe is a wardrobe full of style staples. One of the biggest mistakes that many women make when dressing, as well as when shopping for clothes, is that they jump into the deep end first and opt for bright colours and daring fits. You must start with the basics, wear them, and gradually build upon those using only items that suit your body shape.
