1,000 Outfits from 30 Pieces Enough Said.
If you are like me, you have a closet packed with clothes and more shoes than you care to count. Wendy Mak’s The Capsule Wardrobe: 1,000 Outfits from 30 Pieces, does what’s promised. It shows those of us that cannot even comprehend a wardrobe of 6 tops, 6 jackets/blazers and sweaters, 6 shoes and accessories and turns it into a detailed plan of providing 1000 outfits.
For those who wish to downsize The Capsule Wardrobe would help provide a guideline to help provide a basic closest of clothes that will work for your life.
For me, I can’t even pack for a weekend away without bring that much so I was completely intrigued by the ingenuity to create so many options out of the basics. I can see myself using The Capsule Wardrobe as a guideline for travel but not as a lifestyle change.
I received this ARC copy of The Capsule Wardrobe: 1,000 Outfits from 30 Pieces from Skyhorse Publishing in exchange for a honest review.
Insightful book for understanding capsules
This was a good read and helped me get a better idea of what a capsule wardrobe is. I was surprised by the fact that a capsule wardrobe means actually owning more than 30-something pieces because you will have warm weather and cold weather items that you rotate in and out of the capsule, or you would have to buy 6 or so new pieces each season. Also it doesn’t count workout gear (or in my case plain old work clothes for working/playing in the dirt- there is really no good way to mix and match these clothes with the others.) It was a helpful reminder for me on what pieces to shop for when adding to my closet or how to thin it out.
