How to Build a Capsule Wardrobe

A wardrobe for life. 

What's a Capsule Wardrobe? 

A capsule wardrobe is a collection of practical and versatile pieces of clothing put together to create an entire wardrobe for a season. 

Why is a Capsule Wardrobe a good idea?

Have you ever opened your closet - full of clothes - and deemed you had nothing to wear? Us too. Feeling this way makes it easy to go out and buy something new and fun. Quick-fix buying, or buying clothing for one-time use, is what leads us to feeling like we have nothing to wear. 

Capsule Wardrobes were created to fix this problem, and we're going to show you how you can start building your very own capsule wardrobe today. At Basic Apparel, we strive to provide quality-made fundamental basics for your everyday look. Your style is an important part of your life, and we believe that you should build it the way you want with great pieces and great prices. 

Where to Begin?

Start with deciding what can stay and what should go in your current wardrobe - this is the hard part! If you're like us, you LOVE clothes, so it's always hard to part ways. Ask yourself some questions: 

  • Have I worn this in the last year?
  • Does it fit my everyday lifestyle?
  • Could I easily pair it with other things in my closet?
  • Could I wear it multiple ways?

Once you've narrowed down your current wardrobe, you can start building your capsule wardrobe!

Thinking mindfully about what pieces we keep in our closet is very important. We don't want to feel discouraged when we open our closet door every morning; instead, we want to feel like we have something great to put on because we love every single item in our wardrobe, and we know exactly how to wear it. 

Good Basics

It's no secret that good basics go a long way, and lucky for you - that's our specialty. Creating a fabulous capsule wardrobe is easy at Basic Apparel. 

We have some great options for basic tops, here are some of our favorites! 

These basic tops are a must-have because they are so versatile. It is unbelievably easy to dress these up or down, and that is exactly what having a capsule wardrobe is all about. 

Leggings are another great piece to include in your wardrobe - and we have many options to choose from. Check out some of our must-have black leggings!

You can never go wrong with a good pair black leggings - they pair well with anything, and again it's no trouble to dress them up or down.
