Ashe Organizing Solutions

As the warmer weather approaches (we hope sooner than later!) we begin thinking about new and fresh items to wear. Establishing a capsule wardrobe is a great way to assess what you do and don’t wear, streamline your closet and save both time and money. Before we go any further, you may be wondering what exactly is a capsule wardrobe? A capsule wardrobe is a collection of a few essential items of clothing made up of versatile pieces that you completely love to wear. The key is that you need to buy for YOUR lifestyle and YOUR own personal style.

The average capsule wardrobe includes 20-30 pieces per season, four times a year. Some pieces will stay with you season after season, while some will be exclusive to only one season. You will also find yourself replacing items like layering tanks and tees more often while outerwear styles last year after year. Investing in styles that fit well will help you replace these items less and love them more as the years pass.

Here’s an easy checklist that includes all lifestyles and personal styles.

Whether you work a 9-5 job, stay at home with the kids or have an on-the go lifestyle, keep reading. If you’re trendy, edgy, classic, feminine, and anything in between, this list covers it all.
