It’s never too late to revamp your closet for the new year!

If you want to dress fashionable on a budget, you can’t go wrong with a capsule wardrobe. Consider this your handy capsule wardrobe checklist so you can stay on-trend and within budget with your style in 2022. 

Benefits of a Capsule Wardrobe 

Does looking at your overstuffed closet stress you out? A capsule wardrobe can help you with decision fatigue by limiting your selection of clothing pieces to items that are interchangeable and complementary.

Capsule wardrobe essentials are a great mix of versatile basics (like a white t-shirt) and classic pieces that never go out of style. From this handful of items, you can create many chic outfits all year long. 

Along with helping with decision fatigue, a capsule wardrobe is also beneficial for:

  • Your wallet, since you’re purchasing pieces that will always be in style and are made to last
  • The environment, since this is a more sustainable way to grow your closest
  • Your space, since fewer clothes mean more storage
