A capsule wardrobe is simply a small, versatile collection of great clothing. Imagine a wardrobe containing only your absolute favourites: timeless, high quality pieces which you'd wear over and over.
We've all been there, staring at a closet full of clothes, with 'nothing to wear'. A capsule wardrobe is the answer to this problem. A few well-chosen pieces can actually give you more options than a vast array of 'fast fashion'.
It's a completely different approach to fashion and comes with great benefits:
- It saves time: a capsule wardrobe makes it easy to decide what you're going to wear (no more decision fatigue)
- It saves the environment: 'fast fashion' is in one month, out the next, and generally doesn't wear well for long. Soon enough, it's landfill.
- It saves money: It's the most cost-effective way to shop. You get more out of every piece you buy.
It saves you from "what was I thinking?': with ease and pleasure, you'll put together outfits and love every piece of clothing you own.
If you're interested in a happier, easier, guilt-free and money-smart life then a capsule wardrobe is definitely for you!
The term "Capsule Wardrobe" was first coined in the 1970's in London by a boutique owner named Susan Faux. According to Faux "a capsule wardrobe is a collection of a few essential items of clothing that don't go out of fashion, such as skirts, trousers, and coats, which can then be augmented with seasonal pieces."
Here at Issue we choose fabrics, colours and designs for maximum outfit versatility. You get more from each piece because you can wear it so many ways! You'll also find they fit in with other pieces you already own.
A good capsule wardrobe should provides lots of outfit choices as each piece is able to be used in lots of different combinations.
