I can’t ever see myself with an expansive and overstuffed closet; I don’t like to hoard excessive amounts of things across the board in my life.However, over recent months my thought process regarding a highly edited (and let’s face it, somewhat restrictive) wardrobe have shifted slightly and I haven’t stuck as rigidly to the no-buy rule. When I first got into the idea of capsule wardrobes, I subscribed to the worked although with hindsight I rushed filling it up, so purchased things that a couple of months later I wasn’t that keen on and I stuck with pieces that didn’t fit or sit right just because I felt like I didn’t have time to search around for a better cut product.

One of my reasons for having a capsule wardrobe is to create more space and time for the things that I love.

We can think a million places we'd rather be than cooped up in an office while the sun is shining, but we can, at the very least, bring a touch of summer to our work wardrobes. Why not trade in your navy or black blazer for a buttercup-yellow alternative?
Pale-blue, blush-pink and khaki-green are lovely options for workwear, particularly if you have to adhere to a more corporate dress code.I’d got a uniform – things were set in stone in a way that they never had been before.I invested in new denim, quality shirts, basic boots and statement boots, semi-fitted jumpers to tuck into belted jeans, a new pair of loafers – it’s like everything clicked into place.Discovering the concept of a capsule wardrobe was the first step in my journey toward minimalism.I have always loved fashion, and my wardrobe used to be quite extensive.Tall, flat boots with your jeans or skinny trousers tucked in is a fast and easy way to look fashionable and put-together. The new ankle length pants are cut closer to the body and stop at the ankle.
