Before you read this, read my article on Minimalism In Fashion and What It Means For Your Closet.
So, a minimalist approach to your closet appeals to you. I don’t blame you, having a highly functional collection that all match with each other is appealing. Could you imagine a world where you can pull out two items and they match? It’s a perfectly acceptable outfit. It’s the closet of miracles.
So, what is a minimalist closet exactly?
A minimalist closet it pretty much what it sounds like, a minimal closet. Normally, it taps out at 36 pieces, including tops, sweaters, jackets, pants, skirts, dresses and shoes. Athletic wear, work clothes, special event clothes and undergarments should all not be apart of this, and should have there own area and consideration.
Some people choose to have one capsule wardrobe for work and one for casual wear if their wardrobes vary that drastically.
The goal of a minimalist closet is to simplify getting dressed. It’s one less thing you have to think about. However, it’s actually something that you have to put a ton of thought in. Every single piece in your wardrobe must fit, be stylish and serve multiple purposes. This is not for the mentally weak. This type of closet takes an extreme amount of self discipline and commitment. Starting and stopping this process will probably break you and mess up your closet so badly you may never be able to recover.
Are you willing to take the risk?
