Benefits of a capsule wardrobe
- Owning only clothing you love and fits well will allow you to love what you do have even more.
- With less options, you will spend less time getting dressed.
- You will become more resourceful and creative, pairing up items that you might not have before.
- Packing for a trip becomes a lot easier because you’re not weeding through clothing or shoes you don’t like.
- Redefining your personal style will make you feel more polished and confident.
