We have all heard the term capsule wardrobe but what is the reasoning behind it? Surely if you love clothes and fashion the idea is to have as much as possible right? Well this is not really the point, Fashion is all about wearing clothes and sometimes we end up with
pieces that sit in the wardrobe for years unworn only to be dropped off finally at a charity shop for someone else to buy.
Getting a capsule wardrobe together means that you actually wear your clothes, are never short of the right outfit for any occasion and
eliminates the stress from your life where sartorial choices are concerned. So let’s have a look at the sort of pieces you need in your capsule wardrobe for the Spring months ahead.
