This week I’m challenging you to wear a capsule wardrobe for a week. And it’s a smallish capsule of only 10 garments plus accessories and shoes (I’ll let you have as many of those as you like!). Why not see if you can get through to the end of April (just over a week) with your wardrobe capsule?
What is a capsule wardrobe? It’s a selection of garments that all go together, that can be mixed and matched, so that you you get maximum value from each piece.
I’ve written pieces on wardrobe capsules and how to create them:

When creating your capsule for the next week, first of all check a weekly weather forecast so you’ve got that aspect covered, sit down with your diary and figure out what you’ve got on, and then look into your wardrobe and work out which clothes will work for your lifestyle, what’s appropriate for each occasion. Try putting together the garments in multiple ways, you may end up dismissing some items and finding others that will make the capsule more flexible. I’d suggest your capsule look something likes this:
5 – tops (or dresses or a combination of both)
2 – bottoms
3 – jackets/cardigans/sweaters
= 10 garments which make 30 possible outfits, and you only need to wear them for 7-9 days!
