Sometimes, getting going in the morning can be a struggle. Especially if you have a hundred other things on your plate like going to the gym, dropping the kids off at school, and trying to pack a lunch to bring to work — getting dressed can sometimes feel like just another chore.
But imagine if you could just reach into your closet, pull out an outfit and be ready to go, with the knowledge that you look presentable and put-together. Sounds almost too good to be true, right? Well, it’s easier than you might expect if you focus on one thing: Curating a capsule wardrobe. Designed from the idea of clothing brands coming out with “capsule collections” which work well paired with any piece of the collection, the capsule wardrobe envisions a closet where each piece works to compliment the other. You can imagine how this would reduce your dressing stress and make mornings easier, no?
Thankfully, there are many brands out there to help you make this dream a reality. Better yet, there is a huge range of options, from basic to designer so you don’t have to fret that this effort will break the bank. Start small, adding one piece at a time that speaks to your envisioned capsule wardrobe, and before you know it, choosing an outfit will be a whole lot easier.
