I’ve been capsule-wardrobing now since January. It was my first experience with the concept of the capsule – and it’s safe to say that it’s been educational! Here are five things I’ve learnt from the process over the past few months.
1. Capsuling is a state of mind
I initially thought it might be difficult to get into the swing of things. I’m not usually an impulse buyer, so the idea of mulling over each item you purchase and weighing up its value and purpose is not new to me. Nonetheless, the idea of committing to a set number of wardrobe pieces for a set amount of time was a little daunting at first. I found that you really have to get into a both pragmatic and minimalist (though I use this word with caution) state of mind for the capsule idea to work well for you – it’s like hypnotism, it won’t work unless you want it to!
