I never have had a large number of clothes but I like color and variety so it tended to be a jumble when I looked in the closet each morning. This capsule is working out quite well and I didn't have to buy a thing. In fact I have already donated quite a few things that just didn't deserve space in my closet. There will be more out the door as I create wardrobes for the other three seasons and there will be lots of shopping for the summer one as it spans 5 months and sometimes two outfits a day if I am outside. Got to love Hotlanta!
What do I have for our two lovely fall months (October and November)? 5 pairs of pants, 5 long sleeve shirts, 3 mid length sleeve shirt, 5 short sleeve shirts, 5 sweaters/vest, 2 pairs of shoes, a scarf, 4 pieces jewelry, 2 coats, a purse, and gloves. Turns out in addition to my basic colors of black, gray and denim, I had quite a few orange tops from blaze orange to melon. All mix and match.
I did have to swap a few things out as the weather cooled - heavy black cardigan, black slacks and a third pair of jeans were put instead of short sleeve black cardigan, black capris and denim capris. I also grabbed a suit jacket from the winter clothes for a business trip. That's it though.
Have you tried anything like this with your clothes?
