Today I am sharing my Spring capsule wardrobe with tips and tricks on how to declutter. As the seasons change so does my capsule wardrobe!
Each season I go through my wardrobe and I analyze what I am wearing and what needs to be donated. When winter is over and we are going into spring I like to switch out my clothes. I simply move all of my summer clothes so they are front and center in my closet.

When I am relocating my winter clothes I think about what I actually wore and what I didn’t. I also look for clothes that are worn out or ill fitting. Normally I find at least a few things that I don’t need or want anymore.
My seasonal capsule wardrobe consists of about 30 to 40 items. Whenever I am replacing a piece of clothing I like to make sure it ticks off these simple rules.
- Make sure the item can be mixed and matched
- Only buy what I will actually wear
- Find items that can be dressed up or down
- Make sure the clothes fit my lifestyle
- Buy clothes that fit me now and not “some day”
New To A Capsule Wardrobe
Start with what you have in your closet. If you are new to a capsule wardrobe my first suggestion would be to use what you already have. Pick out what you love and donate what you no longer like.
Give yourself a limit that you will keep in your capsule. The amount doesn’t really matter, but it will help you to downsize quicker and focus on the items that you actually wear. In reality most people wear a very limited amount of clothes. Normally we wear the same things over and over.
The only thing left to do is fill in any gaps with items that can be mixed and matched.
Minimalist Capsule Wardrobe
How do you KEEP a capsule wardrobe minimalist?
I like to abide by the one in one out policy. If I decide that I want something new, I need to figure out what item is going to be replaced. Only shop for items that are needed.
As you declutter make a list of the items that need to be replaced. Most of the time I realize the items I am decluttering don’t need to be replaced. If I am decluttering an item because it is worn out then I will make a list so I know exactly what to buy.
Since having a capsule wardrobe I usually bring in new items once or twice a year. A minimalist capsule wardrobe has saved me a lot of money and time. The money that was once spent on clothes can now be used for fun experiences.
Capsule Wardrobe Discovery
Discovering the capsule wardrobe has changed everything. I use to think a capsule wardrobe had look a certain way and have certain items in it. Over time I realized a capsule wardrobe can be anything you want it to be.
Essentially a capsule wardrobe is just a limited amount of clothes that work well together.
