Refusing to constantly follow fashion trends and transitioning to a capsule closet can be a bit challenging and overwhelming, especially when first starting out. However, with several easy steps, everyone can simplify their clothes and build a minimalist wardrobe that makes them look great and stylish. Read on to know how to get started.
How to build a minimalist wardrobe: easy tips to follow
1. Define the boundaries
Before shopping, create several fashion rules. What types of clothes will you never wear? Knowing that will make your wardrobe decluttering and shopping much easier.
2. Borrow instead of buying
If you need clothes for a special occasion or a short period of time, try borrowing instead of buying. Thus, you will save your money and become one step closer to a minimalist wardrobe.
3. Go shopping with a list
Clothing shops are made to manipulate people. Before going there, make a list of essentials you actually need. Think about the style, color, fabric, fashion brand, and fit of clothes you want to buy in advance.
4. Pay attention to the dusty clothes
Do you have that dress hanging in the back of your closet that you have never worn? Get rid of it by donating or selling it online.
5. Get rid of pieces that are beautiful but don’t fit
Now, think about the beautiful pieces in your closet. If you have a gorgeous and expensive long coat that is very Audrey Hepburn but does not fit you, get rid of it as well. Thus, you will make room for new things that fit you perfectly.
6. Stop being sentimental
Wedding dresses, sweaters that bring back happy memories, etc. – get them out of your house. Be honest, you will never wear these pieces again. So why keep them in your closet for years to come?
Hopefully, these tips will help you build an essential minimalist wardrobe that will make you look great on all occasions. Good luck!
