If you’ve ever felt exhausted by the number of choices you have to make every day, then you’re not alone. This exhaustion is a real thing and is called decision fatigue and is actually scientifically proven to take a toll on your decision making skills throughout the day and can impair good decisions. Ever notice Barack Obama, Steve Jobs, or perhaps even Mark Zuckerberg wear? That’s right, they wear pretty much the exact same thing each day, and also strictly following clothes that blend smoothly together with a small range of rudimentary colours. This is because they have achieved a minimalist capsule wardrobe.
More often than not, a capsule comprises of a set number of clothes that you wear for a season before beginning the following capsule. Apparel is just added to the selection toward the beginning of each capsule, urging you to remix and re-wear as opposed to looking for new pieces.
Operating with a capsule wardrobe reduces decision fatigue because it only leaves outfits that you really love which also works interchangeably in your wardrobe. It’s the principle of “less is more” lived out in a tangible way. But there are a lot of other benefits that can come from living a capsule lifestyle. Capsule fans claim the method can curb an out-of-control shopping habit, help you get to know your own style better, save closet space and boost environmental and social responsibility by reducing consumption.
So enough talk about what a capsule wardrobe is, now let’s move on to how to actually make one.
