From HM to OVS you will have often heard the term “Capsule Collection”. Collections, most of the time of high fashion brands serving the economy ones, made up of a few elements that can be easily combined and interchanged.
The idea of the “Capsule Wardrobe” starts from this concept. Its main goal? Free the wardrobe from unnecessary clothing and with a few pieces create a maximum number of combinations and styles.
This can be a good idea for those who want to give themselves to a minimal life, for those who are passionate about decluttering or very simply have decided to optimize their money for shopping.
I decided to test myself and I selected the 33 garments to create my very own “Capsule Wardrobe”.

How do you create a Capsule Wardrobe?
Let’s start with the assumption that all the clothes that make it up will exalt the person who wears them to the maximum. To choose:
– colors that go with everything. Suitable for any occasion and season;
– fabrics with which you feel most comfortable;
– clothes that adapt to your body type (hourglass, pear, apple, and rectangle);
– taking into account the life you lead (office, parties, sports, etc…)
The Formula of 33
The Capsule Wardrobe should consist of no more than 33 clothes excluded:
– a tracksuit;
– lingerie (no more than 6 pieces).
Let’s find out in detail the 33 clothes that will make up the wardrobe.
solid color top with long sleeves (2)
shirts with buttons (two different colors) (2)
tank tops (2)
jeans (black, blue and white) (3)
skirt (whose color matches most of your tops)
black ankle boots
Is it possible to live with a “Capsule Wardrobe” made up of only 33 pieces? After my experience I’m told that it’s impossible. This is if the 33 clothes are to be considered for a whole year.
In my opinion, however, it becomes possible if the same are considered relative to the seasons: 33 clothes for winter/autumn and 33 for spring/summer.
Personally, that I only did a few matches for the photos to be attached to the article, I was amazed by some of the outfits that came out.
The advantage is therefore to free up space, but equally save money. All without sacrificing style! Would you be able to create your “33 Capsule Wardrobe”? If yes, try it, publish the result on FB and tag the Magazine page!
