How to Create the Ultimate Capsule Wardrobe

More often than not, when you need to find something to wear, you just don’t have anything suitable, yet your wardrobe is stuffed with all kinds of clothes! Instead of wearing something you already have, you go out and buy something new, adding to the already full wardrobe. Perhaps you do have something to wear, but the number of clothes in your wardrobe makes it difficult for you to make a choice. Buying something new adds to the choice and it becomes a vicious circle. Help break that circle today by creating the ultimate capsule wardrobe!

Why Do I Need Fewer Clothes?

According to The Telegraph, it is extremely common to have too many clothes but nothing to wear. In order to create a capsule wardrobe, you will first need to tackle your current clothing situation.

Be ruthless. Purge your wardrobe to make room for the right clothes. Start by separating clothes into piles such as:


Is it comfortable?

Does it fit me?
Does it look good?
Do I love it?

If the answer is no, let it go. Take your unwanted items to a charity shop, leaving you with the space to create your new wardrobe.

Creating Your Ultimate Capsule Wardrobe

When creating your wardrobe, you ideally want to minimize your laundry load while ensuring you have enough to wear. More often than not, when you need to find something to wear, you just don’t have anything suitable, yet your wardrobe is stuffed with all kinds of clothes! Instead of wearing something you already have, you go out and buy something new, adding to the already full wardrobe.

Start with two pairs of trousers, one smart and one casual, such as dark denim. Add eight tops, preferably a mixture of smart button-up shirts, t-shirts and polo Farah shirts, such as those available at ejmenswear.com/men/farah. Add two jackets, one smart and one casual, eight pairs of underwear, eight pairs of socks and two pairs of shoes – one smart, one casual.

By doing this, you have eight days’ worth of clothes to wear, assuming you wear one outfit a day. This accounts for one day of laundry. You could also add some optional accessories such as scarves, bags or sunglasses, which can add a touch of class or professionalism to some of your outfits. Your style might need you to be more formal, if you have an office job perhaps, or more casual – adapt your choices depending on what you need. Take your unwanted items to a charity shop, leaving you with the space to create your new wardrobe.

Next time you need an outfit to wear, you will be able to easily select the right one for you!
