What is a Capsule wardrobe? #capsulewardrobeseries

This may be a long post so grab a cup of tea, there is a bit of story time involved. This is the start of my, errr, I don't want to say 'journey', so this is my experiment shall we say with a capsule wardrobe.  

I was looking at my wardrobe and I didn't want to wear anything. (First world problem, I know) "They don't go", "That doesn't fit", and "Why did I buy that?!". Can anyone else relate? I even have a t-shirt that says 'I have nothing to wear', but enough is enough.
My history with fashion is similar to others I think, being an awkward teenager trying to find your style and not being able to afford the 'right' thing then slowly collecting things that were either the trend or sale items which I probably wouldn't have bought at full price. I kept buying more clothes every time I saw something pretty, thinking it would change my whole wardrobe and, of course, nothing ever did. I fell completely out of love with it, which is a little sad for someone who had obsessed about fashion for a long time. 

But then along came a new thought; I was with my boyfriend and we were joking that he always wears the same colour, but everything goes together. It makes life so much easier. It makes sense that even though he has fewer clothes than me, more thought is put in. 
He has a sort of capsule wardrobe by accident, which inspired me to make a similar change

I started to look for information and inspiration which firstly came in the form of The Anna Edit, one of my favourite Bloggers and Youtubers. I had seen some of her capsule wardrobe videos, so I watched them all! I love her style and I love her relaxed attitude to the capsule wardrobe concept. I would say shes my principle style inspiration, but before I took the major steps to change everything I wanted some more information.

I would definitely recommend the blog 'Unfancy'. It's like the bible for capsule wardrobes. Her descriptions are fantastic and incredibly informing. You need to read it whether you want to create a capsule wardrobe or not. 

From all these amazing ladies I concluded that a capsule wardrobe is a small and versatile wardrobe that you love. I think it will speed the whole dressing process up because hopefully most items will work together. I would say it's the most edited form of your normal wardrobe. 

Keep an eye out for a post about my capsule wardrobe coming soon.
