You’ve heard about capsule wardrobes, but have you ever tried one yourself? Maybe you love clothes and think a capsule wardrobe is too restrictive. Or maybe your life is filled with so many different activities you’d make a super hero’s head spin with all the outfit changes and you have no idea where to start.
But, the good news is that capsule wardrobes are the opposite of restrictive and in fact give you the freedom to really enjoy everything in your closet. They also help corral the clothing you need for various activities and help you see there are holes in your wardrobe you need to fill.
Buying more clothes was probably not the advice you expected from a wannabe minimalist. Am I right?
The truth is that there is no magic number of clothing items we need in our closets, but most of us can and should be living with a lot less.
My guest on the latest episode of the Wannabe Minimalist Show can help you love your closet and love getting dressed everyday. Erin Flynn, co-founder and CEO of cladwell.com give us the personal styling app of our dreams and even coordinates our clothes based on the weather - wherever we are!
