2018 Year Round Capsule Wardrobe Basics

Spring cleaning is well underway, so I wanted to share what all is currently in my closet. I am working on an updated post in which I give you the complete breakdown of how I organize my closet, but I thought it might help if you see what all I have in my closet right now. This particular post is going to break down my capsule wardrobe basics.

Capsule wardrobe basics are items in my closet that stay there year round. The pieces are basic or neutral colors so they can be paired with items in my seasonal capsules and work capsule. Right now, I have my Capsule Wardrobe Basics, Spring Capsule, and my Work Capsule out in my closet.

Today, we're going over my basics. I've had many of these items for several years, so they are meant to last a long while. I hope that this peek in my closet will give you ideas on how to stock your closet up with items that are quality pieces that can be used in many different ways.

I hope that this guide has been helpful for you all! These are pieces that I've pared down to because I've found myself going to these items again and again. Of course, I mix them with pieces from my other capsules to make them seasonally friendly.

Moving towards a minimalist lifestyle does not mean you have to sacrifice style. It means you're more intentional with your purchases and how you pair the items together.

Have you thought about having a capsule wardrobe? What are some fears you have about it?
