Remember Garanimals? It was (and still is) the popular line of clothing for kids that was founded on a simple concept: to help parents and children coordinate outfits easily. Each animal represents a line within the collection, which consists of mix and match separates, whose color and style coordinate with any piece within that same animal line.
Well, that is the exact same principle behind Wardrobe Capsules. Yes, they take a bit of work to create in the first place, but once you have one, it makes dressing so much easier.
The idea is to plan your capsule around two or three neutrals and a couple of accent shades which allows you to mix 'n' match with ease, maximizing the amount of outfits you can create with fewer items. For example, you can use just 7 different pieces to create 16 different looks - check out my sample below.
Each of the four tops above can be worn with the two bottom pieces to create 8 different looks. Wear each of those 8 outfits with or without the cardigan, and you now have 16 different looks. See how easy it is!?
Using Wardrobe Capsules makes packing for vacations so much easier, and is a great tool to use at the beginning of a new fashion season to get the most bang for your buck.
