SO, WHAT’S A “CAPSULE WARDROBE”?
Gone are the days of fussing over what to wear every morning. Life can be stressful enough, the last thing we need to be doing is umming and ahing over clothing we don’t love and don’t make us feel good.
Capsule wardrobes take the headache out of getting dressed; it’s a limited selection of specially curated and interchangeable pieces - usually made up of neutrals & staple pieces. Capsule wardrobes allow you to create a variety of outfits you love with a small(er!) collection of clothing.
BENEFITS OF A CAPSULE WARDROBE
Okay, so we’re a little biased but there’s so many reasons why a capsule wardrobe is beneficial to (pretty much) everyone…
Easy Decision Making - getting dressed can be overwhelming. Having a closet full of clothing you love and fits you well, makes the task of getting dressed SO much easier.
More time - yes, we are giving you permission to hit the snooze button. Less time browsing your closet for what to wear = more time sleeping. It’s a win-win!
More Sustainable - purchasing timeless staples that won’t go out of style means you’ll be able to shop less - quality over quantity!
Save Money - of course a capsule wardrobe can help you save money!!! Like being more sustainable, less shopping means less money spent. What will you do with your newfound-wealth?!
CAPSULE WARDROBE NECESSITIES - MAVI EDITION
The first step to creating your capsule wardrobe is to do an audit of what you already have. What pieces are you constantly reaching for? What pieces make you feel great? For each piece in your closet, ask yourself “when was the last time I wore this?” If it’s been over more than 6 months it might be time to break up with that piece.
One you’ve whittled your pieces down to what you need, love and wear, the real fun can begin…
Three basic tee’s: these can be whatever colours you wear most, but we recommend white & black to start with. Our Kara t-shirt makes the perfect addition to any wardrobe with a relaxed fit and 100% cotton fabric.
Two tanks: Our Mia Tank is the perfect everyday basic, (Bonus: buy 2, save 40%!!)
Two shirts + blouse: Forever staples.
3 Jumpers/Cardigans: Sadly, it’s not always summer…. Our Sweat Collection will keep you warm and fashionable through every season.
Jeans: We recommend a few quality, comfortable jeans depending on your personal style. A great pair of skinny, relaxed and black jeans are a great place to start! And, you're in the right place to find some 😉
Two Jackets: or one or two more, depending on where you live! We love a classic denim jacket
Accessories: a hat, sunnies, jewellery and a belt go a long way in a capsule wardrobe. They can effortlessly take a daytime outfit to night time with very little effort. The same principles apply; things you love, reach for and are relatively neutral!
