PRODUCT PLACEMENT I The dream of the Capsule Wardrobe, will it come true? Since my last fashion contribution I sneak around my clothes and especially shoe closet . I want to change something; I want to put my plans into action . I’m waiting for the big gesture – the great cleaning and tidying up. Fascinating and daunting at the same time is the idea of a small selected wardrobe, which is composed exclusively of favorite pieces. However, it is not so easy to find such favorite parts, if you want to achieve a varied and coordinated wardrobe. How do I proceed?
CAPSULE WARDROBE – FASHIONABLE BOREDOM?
Surely I could just put together four to five outfits for spring . That’s not a big challenge. BUT I do not want to wear the same spring every week. A week plan according to the motto on Mondays I wear the red dress with the dots, on Tuesdays the skinny jeans with my pink knit sweater, Wednesdays … I would like to avoid. Surely such a plan would take away all the fashionable “load” from my shoulders, but after two weeks at the latest, I would fall for fashionable boredom . A little challenge may be. So how do I get a variety of different outfits from a small selected Capsule Wardrobe ?!
COMBINATION GIFT OR MIX & MATCH
The keyword is to combine ! An obvious? This may be. To put into action? Not easy. Although I have to admit that with my Mix & Match series I am already in the process of choosing a whole spring wardrobe according to the motto “Combine is King”, it is not so easy. The easiest and most cost-effective way is to first check your own inventory .
- What are my current favorite garments?
- Are they good for a spring wardrobe?
- Which cuts, colors and trends would I like to supplement with the help of which garments?
This looks very simple at first glance, but needs a lot of research , if you want to move in the small frame of Capsule Wardrobe.
STARTING SHOT OF TOPS
I start small. Favorite jeans ? No problem, because I can continue to wear them in the spring. Favorite jacket ? More a challenge. However, here is the selection in my wardrobe so big that the right jacket even for the most volatile April weather is found quickly. Favorite shoes ? A tough decision as to which pair should be for spring, but doable: trendy white sneakers with a bow and a pair of black boots with silver buckles. A contrasting pair that represents the two styles that I like to wear in everyday life.
But what I need most at the moment is tops for spring, The thick knit sweaters from the winter are finally sorted out and put aside. Spring is the time for T-shirts and light blouses.
TWO SHIRTS, COUNTLESS LOOKS
Now it’s time to get down to business. A decision has been made. Stripes and flounces are very popular for my Spring Capsule Wardrobe . So a white, wide-cut T-shirt with black stripes and a kissing mouth as a cute detail is the first new addition to this spring. As representative for the trend theme flounces a white long-sleeved blouse has moved in with me, which I found like the T-shirt in the online shop About You ! Two shirts, countless new looks.
Both tops fit perfectly with black or light blue jeanscombine. For a feminine touch, I wear a t-shirt or blouse with the white sneakers. The shirts are cooler and cooler in combination with Boots. Even if I keep all the outfit details like jeans, shoes and coat, I have two completely different looks that I can design with my two new additions. So the perfect choice to do little more!
