What is a Capsule Wardrobe?

A capsule wardrobe is a selection of around 30-50 versatile pieces to suit any occasion. It’s the sustainable future of fashion, encouraging us to buy less and buy better.

Who doesn’t want to open their wardrobe and see nothing but beautiful clothes they can’t wait to wear? Whering can help you fall back in love with items you already own so you can reduce your wardrobe to pieces you know and love.

Fine tuning your wardrobe to just 30-50 pieces may seem daunting, but we have a variety of features to help you curate your capsule wardrobe!

How to Build the Perfect Capsule Wardrobe

Building a capsule wardrobe is different for everyone. It needs to be made up of items you could wear on a daily basis, whether that’s dresses or jeans, your capsule wardrobe should reflect your style through and through.

Start by logging your outfits daily on the Whering Planner to see what styles keep cropping up. Jot down your most worn items - these are the core elements of your capsule wardrobe.

From here on out, everything that stays in your wardrobe needs to match with one or more of the core items you chose. For a capsule wardrobe to work you need to be able to wear the pieces multiple ways. 

It’s up to you how many items you have, but the point of a capsule wardrobe is to have a small selection of quality pieces that work for multiple occasions. It’s recommended to have 30-50 items.

Are Capsule Wardrobes limiting?

If you love fashion as much as we do, it might be hard for you to imagine a condensed version of your wardrobe.

Capsule wardrobes don’t need to be limiting, you can still be creative with your looks and experiment with different combinations. If anything, it’s more creative to come up with new outfit ideas from a more streamlined selection of items. 

Your capsule wardrobe still has room for unique pieces. It doesn’t have to be entirely made up of basics. It should be a versatile selection of clothes suitable for multiple occasions, including those when you may need to wear something a little fancy.

You can choose what you think your capsule wardrobe needs so it doesn’t limit you to one particular style. As long as it’s a condensed version of your wardrobe, the rest is up to you.

How Can I Use Whering to Make a Capsule Wardrobe? 

If you’re not sure where to start, there are plenty of ways to create a capsule wardrobe with the Whering app.

No one likes clearing out their wardrobe, but doing it from the comfort of your sofa while you flick through items on your phone doesn’t sound so bad.

With everything from personalised wardrobe stats to donation services, Whering has everything you need to kickstart your capsule wardrobe journey.

Creating a Capsule Wardrobe With My Statistics 

It’s hard for us to let go of clothes, even the ones we hardly wear, as we’re always thinking of a random scenario in which we might need to wear it again.

Sadly, sometimes we have to get rid of clothes we love and make way for new pieces that are more compatible with our current style and body type. Yes, it's time to donate that top you loved when you were 17.

Whering stats make it easy to know what to keep and what to donate. See your personalised wardrobe statistics to get to grips with your dressing habits.

If you plan all your outfits and log them in the Planner daily, you will find personalised stats of your most worn items, including the colour and style of the piece.

By reviewing your personalised statistics you’re able to make informed decisions about what items to keep- so you can streamline what you own and create a wardrobe capsule in minutes. You can donate old pieces to Thrift+ directly from the Whering app. You’re welcome.

Creating a Capsule Wardrobe With Lookbooks 

If you’ve created multiple lookbooks to keep track of your tried and tested outfits (perfect for those days when you need more than just 5 minutes extra in bed) then why not spend a bit of time reviewing which items appear most frequently.

Once you know which pieces are versatile you know you’ve found a piece you need in your capsule wardrobe. Versatility is key when it comes to the capsule wardrobe!

Investing in Staples on our Marketplace 

After fine tuning your clothing, are you finding that you need a little more to bulk up your capsule wardrobe?

We’re all about buying less and buying better, which is why the Whering Marketplace is ideal. We’re bringing you a whole host of stunning and sustainable high quality clothing that you’ll love long term. If you’re looking for basics, our Wardrobe Staples edit has all you need to complete your capsule wardrobe.

After digitising your wardrobe and using our personalised stats function, you’ll know your style inside and out- so whatever you buy will have long term potential to be an asset to your wardrobe. 

Using our Services to Love Your Clothes for Longer

Use Whering’s range of clothing donating and repair services to get rid of old clothes ethically and make those you love last longer.

Your capsule wardrobe has to be made of the highest quality items to last you as long as possible, so make sure you’re investing in clothes you already own through Whering’s repair and alteration services, rather than buying new (tempting as it might be). 

We wish you luck on your capsule wardrobe journey! Having nothing but items we love wearing is sustainable, and makes us feel great.

We can't wait to see how you get along using Whering to create your capsule wardrobe. Share your refined selection with us on our socials, @Whering__ on Instagram and Twitter.
