First things first, let us tell you that “decision fatigue” is real! It’s as real as it gets. Did you know that the good old grey matter is programmed to take a certain number of decisions in a day. Do you want to burden it with the decision to choose your #OOTD as well? As if your brain is not tired enough. So, the best way to beat this decision fatigue is to readily adopt the concept of a capsule wardrobe.

Unless you’ve been off Instagram for a while, you must have heard the term “capsule wardrobe” being thrown around a lot. Even if you aren’t aware, fret not. We’ve got you covered.

So, this is for all our enthusiastic fashion people. Pay attention. A capsule wardrobe is a carefully curated collection of clothes, chosen to make sure that you can create a variety of looks using these items. In layman’s language, the items in such a wardrobe are chosen to help you create multiple looks by mixing and matching the clothes you have in your wardrobe.

What are the benefits of a capsule wardrobe, you ask. Keep reading.

1. No more “I-don’t-have-anything-to-wear” moments
2. Good for the environment
3. Saves time if you’re always hurrying

As interesting as this concept sounds, there are high chances that it can turn into a fashion faux pass if not done right. But we at Easybuy, won’t let this happen.

Let’s get started with creating your very own capsule collection.

1. Basic tees aren’t so basic after all

People hate on basic tees for no reason. Those simple, solid-coloured t-shirts are going to help you build your dream capsule wardrobe. Everyone has a favourite colour. What’s yours? Typically, people often opt for basic tees in black, white, beige, and brown. And the good news is that these colours go wonderfully with almost all bottoms. Since our aim is to not go overboard with women’s western wear, we’ll limit ourselves to three to four basic tees in the above-mentioned colours.


2. Meet your closet’s style MVPs—Tank tops

Since you’ll be doing a lot mixing and matching, you’ll need a smooth, sleek base for the layering. And there’s nothing better than fitted tank tops for this job. They look best when you pair them with shirts or blazers, or even with a baggy-fit denim on a sweltering summer afternoon. Tanks offer a comfort fit and your entire ensemble looks neat. While tanks are fundamental for creating a variety of looks, don’t go overboard, and buy them in all colours or you’ll end up broke. We don’t want that, do we?


3. Button-down shirts? A big yes!

Do you know what’s the foundation for countless lewks that you’ll be creating as a part of your capsule collection? Button-down shirts! While the classic white button-down shirt is a staple when it comes to modern outfits, let’s add another classic favourite to your wardrobe—Linen/cotton black button-down shirt. These shirts will give you a crisp, clean look that can be ideal for your workplace or a day out with your gal pals. So, stack them up.


4. Add some chic to your wardrobe with cute blouses

An apparel that makes you look like you mean business and make you look cute at the same time (depending on how you style it) is the versatile blouse. When you pair it with different bottoms, such as jeans or trousers, or even skirts, you get new looks. Make sure that you look for blouses that make you feel comfortable as well. The top favourites include nice-short sleeve tops, silk blouses, denim shirts, etc. You can even play with the prints; florals are the one reigning the scene currently. The best part about owning blouses is that you can either dress it up with a blazer or a cardigan, or dress it down with shoes, accessories, and a denim jacket. The choice is yours.

Now let’s get to the “BOTTOM” of creating the perfect minimalistic wardrobe for women.


1. Denims

What’s versatile and works as the perfect foundation for your capsule wardrobe? Denims! The best part about denims is that they go with everything and since we are living in a world full of possibilities, you get to choose denims of different colours. You can choose between the different shades of blue, black, or beige. You have the freedom to play with different shades, types, and washes. The secret sauce is to not buy similar types of denim so that you don’t end up looking like you’re repeating your outfit.


2. Keep space for your pretty skirts

Cute skirts are always in vogue, so don’t think twice before adding pretty, flowy skirts to your wardrobe. For more formal occasions, a dark-coloured pencil skirt is a must. You can pair it with your button-down shirts or even the elegant blouses you own. See what we did here? We gave created two chic looks for you with the apparels you own. If you need help deciding, consider getting one knee-length, one midi, and one maxi skirt. This should be more than enough.


3. Trousers inspired by K-dramas? Grab ‘em

Who doesn’t love those sleek, flowy trousers that has all K-drama lovers in a chokehold? They fit so perfectly at the waist and tend to get broader towards the bottom. It gives the perfect silhouette. The good news is that you can wear these trousers with your shirts for a sharp lewk or you can dress it down with your basic t-shirt for an evening out with the girls.

Now that you know which bottoms you need to splurge on, we move on to another wardrobe staple—dresse


Dresses

Your list of outfit remains incomplete without dresses. Get yourself a maxi, sheath, or A-line dress, any silhouette you’re comfortable in. It would be ideal if you get single-coloured dresses, you can mix and pair it with jackets or shirts of your choice.
So, ladies, your capsule collection is now complete. You can thank us later. Also, do not forget to get your hands on some minimalistic cute accessories or statement pieces to add the much-needed bling to all your lewks.
