2. Clean out your closet
Okay, let’s do it Marie Kondo style; literally empty out your closet and throw it all on one huge pile. This really helps in the awareness of what you own and what you no longer wear. Keep your visualization at hand and decide per item if it complements the style that you have in mind for your capsule wardrobe - and be critical! If you haven’t worn a piece in a long time and it doesn’t fit in the look of your capsule wardrobe, then it should go on the donate pile. After your clean-out session, a closet of favorites should be what’s left.
3. Make a shopping list
Finished cleaning-out your closet? Then now is the perfect time to do some inventory to figure out what you’re missing to complete your capsule wardrobe. This might seem in contrast to the pile of clothes for donation you’ve just created, but don’t forget that you’re replacing items you no longer wear - and probably haven’t worn that often - with pieces that you’ll love and wear for many years to come.
Does a black leather jacket pop-up in your visuals multiple times? Then put it on your shopping list. This doesn’t mean that you should buy it right away - take the time to look for your perfect version of a leather jacket and remember, it’s all about collecting essentials you’ll stay in love with.
