Creating a capsule wardrobe is a great way to be well organised, save plenty of time and money and always look your best! The idea behind a capsule wardrobe is that you have a few quality items of clothing such as these mens Farah Oxford shirts from EJ Menswear that can be paired with many other items in the wardrobe to create a lot of great looks for all occasions, without having a wardrobe stuffed full of clothes.
How does it save time? Well when you have less clothes to choose from, you won’t have to spend a long time rummaging for the right outfit – it will be easy to locate the right outfit for whatever you want it for.
How does it save money? If you have a wardrobe which contains a few quality items rather than lots of cheaper items of clothing, or old clothing that is no longer suitable, you won’t feel the need to rush out and impulse buy items of clothing as you will know you have all you need in your wardrobe.
What do I need in a Capsule Wardrobe? It can vary a little depending on your lifestyle and work and leisure activities, but this is a good basic list of items you need in a capsule wardrobe:
Shirts – 2 or 3 good quality shirts, maybe a couple more if you wear them daily for work
T-Shirts – 3 or 4 t-shirts, best in plain colours including one in white and one in black
Jeans – 2 good pairs of jeans
Smart Trousers – 2 pairs
Blazer or suit Jacket
Shorts – 2 Pairs
Jumpers or Cardigans – 2 or one of each
