What is a Capsule Wardrobe?

A Capsule Wardrobe is a seasonal mini wardrobe of 30 to 40 versatile favorite pieces composed of tops, bottoms, dresses, jackets, coats and shoes.

5 steps to the Capsule Wardrobe.

Why 30-40 pieces? This is a number from which numerous outfits for a season can be derived. As a rule, that's all it takes. However, it's not about numbers. If you are happier with a few more or fewer pieces, feel free!

A style that suits me.

A Capsule Wardrobe outfit from the latest collection.

1. Create the basis.

Empty your closet and assign each piece to one of the following categories: Donate, give away or sell all clothing items that are not liked/worn. Store mediocre clothes out of sight and dispose of after three months if not missed. Favorite pieces from another season keep in a box until this season. Favorite pieces from the current season go back into the closet. This is the basis for your Capsule Wardrobe.

The perfect outfit for him.

With 2-4 colors to the perfect wardrobe.


Think about which colors suit you, what do you like most. There should be a maximum of 4 basic colors in your closet, so that you can combine all pieces well with each other. Make sure that patterns also remain well combinable with each other.

3. How to choose the clothes?
3. How do you choose the garments?

Use the 3-piece model as a guide. For example, choose three tops: a basic top, a statement top, and one that is visually right in between the two. Continue like this with all of your clothing items. Depending on your lifestyle, you can then decide if you want to add a basic piece here and there or something more original. Combine several outfits and use each piece once if possible. Make a note of what you are still missing.

From basic to highlight.

  • Keep only the favorite and basic pieces from point 1.

  • Browse magazines and social media channels for your style and see what else goes with it.

  • Maybe take some photos of the outfits you are still missing something from and take them with you when you go shopping.

  • Buy only pieces that fit into your chosen color scheme and combine well with the rest.

Perfectly combined.

An everyday look that fits any situation.


Shoes and accessories can turn any plain basic outfit into something special. They can also turn the impression of an outfit into the opposite. For example, a rough shoe can make an elegant dress hip and trendy. Feel free to try them out and experience what effect you can create with your combinations.
