A Budget Capsule Wardrobe - how to work it
A Budget Capsule Wardrobe will work. Just make sure that each piece works hard for you and your lifestyle.
You might not want to work like this all the time but there might be times when it's necessary.
It's really just a learning curve - once you get your head round Capsules then you'll always be able to make your clothes work for you!
I'm not suggesting that...
it would be fun to live off a Budget Capsule Wardrobe like this for ever - but yes - you can if you must for a while!
Everyone's lifestyle is different - so what you will need for your day-to-day activities will also vary.
most important thing is that every garment fits you well and flatters
your figure so that you'll look good in everything you wear. However
many times you wear them.
When might you need a Budget Capsule Wardrobe?
If you have to ... when funds are low or circumstances are against you - you can build a Capsule Wardrobe on a budget quite easily once you understand the fundamentals.
Sometimes we have to take a real long hard look at what we've got to wear. Perhaps...
- You're shocked at the lack of clothes that fit you properly now that you understand your Body Type and Shape
- You've had a really good Wardrobe Edit and you're down to rock bottom
- You have a brand new job and hardly any of your clothes will do?
- You've just had a baby and have very little that fits?
- You've lost your luggage on holiday?
- Most of your wardrobe has been stolen?
- Come on, times are hard - I don't need to explain it to you!
OK sorry to be facetious, but this kind of challenge teaches us all just how far we can go with very few items!
with your current limited wardrobe certainly won't be perfect but this is where
you can start to plan ahead. It's very important that you know how to choose
clothes in Colors to suit you and shapes to Flatter your figure so that, from now on,
every garment or item that you add can earn it's place.
You only need...
the smallest collection to start with. Developing a capsule wardrobe
on a budget requires you to utilize as much as possible from your existing
collection. Introduce as many 'link' items as possible into the mix to give you
extra mileage - tees, camisole, tanks, jumpers, blouses, shirts.
