How To Build A Capsule Wardrobe In 5 Steps

Have you ever opened your closet and thought I have nothing to wear, even though rows of clothes are staring back at you? I’ve been there too!

So now I’m on a quest to build a capsule wardrobe to reduce my decision fatigue.

Read on to find out how to curate a capsule wardrobe of clothes that you’ll love to wear every day! 

Step 1: Analyze Your Unique Style 


A capsule wardrobe should be tailored to YOU, so analyze your lifestyle.  As a busy mom who is always on the go, I love oversized tops made out of breathable material like linen or cotton.


For example, this Bambina top is super comfortable and easy to style in many ways. Whenever I put it on, I spend little time thinking about what to pair it with since it goes with everything else I have! 

Step 2: Identify What You Like To Wear 


Next, identify what you like to wear in your current wardrobe. 


Separate the pieces you love, as this will be the starting point for building your capsule wardrobe. 

Step 3: Declutter Your Wardrobe 


Then, make a pile of everything else that you barely wear. You can sell, donate or recycle the clothes



Step 4: Choose Your Color Palette As A Guide


A color palette is helpful because you can refer to it as a guide when shopping! It gives your wardrobe a cohesive look and is much easier to mix and match.


Step 5: Shop Your Capsule Pieces


Lastly, figure out what’s missing from your wardrobe and shop for it! 


Shop for high-quality clothes that are versatile, comfortable, and easy to wear. Lucky for you, all of Bambina’s pieces are just that!
