Capsule wardrobe guide for men part 1

You may or may not be familiar with the term “capsule wardrobe,” but a lot of recent blog chatter and news coverage has been dedicated to it and you can learn all about it in this guide.

What Capsule wardrobe is, number 1:

A capsule wardrobe is a small collection of clothing that is put together with the purpose of maximizing the number of outfit combinations that can be created with those items and then wearing only that collection of clothing items for an entire season. Each shirt should match each pair of pants, and so forth, and the range of possible combinations should cover the complete wardrobe needs of the person it was created for.

What Capsule wardrobe is, number 2:

The main purpose of a capsule wardrobe is to reduce the dissatisfaction of owning too many clothing items by curating a highly intentional, versatile clothing collection of a specific size. This collection consists only of everyday clothing items such as shirts, pants, jackets, and shoes while excluding accessories and specialty clothing such as underwear, accessories, and workout clothes. It is a minimalist approach to dressing, and it is a perfect way to refocus on quality over quantity.

What Capsule wardrobe is, number 3:

The concept of a capsule wardrobe has been around since the 1970s when a London boutique owner coined the phrase. A few years later, the designer Donna Karan released a collection of women’s work-wear that was supposed to simplify a woman’s wardrobe while getting the most out of it. Even though capsule wardrobes have come in gone in terms of popularity, they have been covered more regularly recently and whole blogs have popped up that exclusively cover the concept. Most guides to capsule wardrobes out there are for women, but this one will be specifically for men.
