A capsule wardrobe is one of those things that makes every man’s life easier – no stressing about what to wear, instead you open a wardrobe in the morning to a co-ordinated rail of clothing that has been created just for you.
If creating a capsule wardrobe is something that you would like, you will probably need to do the hard part first – the clear out. If you are struggling for wardrobe space and have lots of clothes that you have never worn or have not worn for a while you probably do need a capsule wardrobe!
One of the main things that you need to remember when putting a capsule wardrobe together is that the things in it should be good quality – no more fast fashion and a wardrobe stuffed full of cheap but low quality garments. Clothing like these mens Farah Oxford shirts from EJ Menswear is ideal for a capsule wardrobe.
As well as this you need to get the items to co-ordinate. There is nothing wrong with injecting a bit of personality and having some patterned pieces, but the goal of a capsule wardrobe is to make sure that many combinations of outfits can be created from the same items so of course you need to consider colours and styles.
Picking out some neutral tones to form a base for most of the wardrobe is a good idea. When picking out shirts and t-shirts pick one white and one in black as these are two colours that are easy to put with more or less anything.
