WHAT’S A CAPSULE WARDROBE?
A capsule wardrobe is a limited selection of interchangeable clothing pieces that complement each other. These are often classic pieces that do not go out of style and are primarily composed of neutral colors. A capsule wardrobe allows you to create a variety of different outfits with a small selection of clothes.
HISTORY OF A CAPSULE WARDROBE
The concept of a capsule wardrobe has been very popular and widely discussed on social media in recent years. But the concept isn’t new as it emerged several decades ago!
In the 1970s, Susie Faux opened a boutique “Wardrobe” in London, where she used to sell minimalist-looking clothing that was versatile, high quality and that could be easily mixed and matched. Her goal was to help women gain confidence in how they dressed and looked.
The concept of a capsule wardrobe then spread to the USA in 1985, when designer Donna Karan created her Seven Easy Pieces line. Her models were all dressed in bodysuits and showcased seven clothing pieces by creating various outfits with them. The fashion show was a success, and the idea of having an interchangeable minimalist wardrobe became popular. It is now trending again, probably because having a capsule wardrobe makes our lives so much easier and better!
