We know, fashion trends and sustainability don’t exactly go hand-in-hand. While one promotes senseless consumerism, the other promotes using what you have for a long, long time.
But there’s one fashion trend that even we would recommend getting behind— Capsule Wardrobes. While fashion trends come and go, we think this one is here to stay, and for good reason! If there was ever a right balance between sustainability and trends, Capsule Wardrobes hit the sweet spot.

What is a Capsule Wardrobe?
Capsule Wardrobes are an eco-friendly minimalist’s dream come true! So, what exactly are they?
Essentially, the idea of this trend is to create a minimalist collection from your wardrobe, using only staple pieces that you can keep styling in different ways. Capsule Wardrobes eliminate the need for excessive clothes and accessories by teaching you how to use the same items for different occasions and moods.
Sustainability has made its way to our homes and our dinner table conversations. It’s time to fold it, hang it, or display it in our closets. While buying a sustainable product or two is a great way to kickstart this, there’s so much more that you can do— without compromising on your personal style. Capsules Wardrobes are a great way of achieving this.
All the items in a Capsule Wardrobe should work well together. By doing so, you can ensure that nothing you have remains unworn or rarely worn. You can pick out about 20 pieces from your larger wardrobe— shirts, jeans, dresses, whatever suits your style and lifestyle. Pick classics that would transcend fading trends. Remember, here, functionality meets fashion in a timeless manner.
