How to build a capsule wardrobe just requires a bit of savvy thinking. If you have less clothes, you can afford to buy better quality that lasts from ethical brands, and mix and match clothes that make several outfits. Rather than have a wardrobe full of poor-quality clothes made in sweatshops that get thrown away, as they don’t biodegrade.
Donate or sell items you don’t need, then each season just choose a few items made from organic cotton, hemp or linen. Project 333 is the book to help you do this. Author Courtney Carver (a minimalist blogger) has been offering her online course for years, and now she has produced a book so you can learn offline. Wear just 33 items for 3 months, and get back the joy of wearing clothes, rather than just buying ‘fashion mistakes’ that sit in the wardrobe for years, then get thrown away.
The Capsule Wardrobe is not particularly about green clothes, but this stylist has chosen around 30 outfits (so just choose ethical versions to suit like organic clothes and vegan shoes and bags) and then offers a visual index, on how to create 1000 outfits out of them. So you’ll never run out of things to wear.!
