“I have nothing to wear.” How many times have you repeated this phrase in front of a messy closet full of clothes, where there are so many items that you don’t even know what you actually have?
The only thing to do is take the time to sort through your wardrobe and start decluttering, which means selecting clothes to discard because they are too tight, too loose, damaged, or out of style.
The goal? An organized and clean wardrobe, savings, and ethical fashion.
Capsule wardrobe, the perfect wardrobe 🤩
With the change of season comes the time to organize your wardrobe. Not just a seasonal change, but the creation of a ‘capsule wardrobe,’ which is a practical organization of our clothes to sort out what we have and truly love.
A few easily combinable and interchangeable pieces for a versatile wardrobe, never ordinary, and always up-to-date. In this way, both your wallet and your space organization will benefit because you’ll buy less and better!
The fundamental goal of a capsule wardrobe is to have outfits for every occasion without owning an excessive number of clothes that would end up unworn.
But how can you create different outfits suitable for any occasion with just a few items? By purchasing key pieces, those must-have and timeless items that are easy to coordinate.
Creating a capsule wardrobe: where to start 🧥
To start the process, you need to take everything out of the closet, regardless of the seasons, and take stock.
For each item, ask yourself if you’ve worn it in the last year, if it still fits your body well, if the color suits you, and think about when you might use it.
Opt for classic patterns and cuts because they are timeless and never go out of style.
So it makes sense that a good capsule wardrobe contains clothing items that are worn for several years and on various occasions, not just tied to seasonal fashion.
An example is the flared dress with a V-neck from the Essentials collection in an exclusive print, perfect for both work and leisure or the black T-shirt with laser cut, breathable and stretchy, excellent as an under-jacket or worn on its own, tucked into pants or with a high-waisted skirt.
To avoid frequently discarding our clothes, it’s better to invest in high-quality items and fabrics that can withstand the test of time and multiple washes.
Pay attention to the fabric and its characteristics: OPI[MO] has created the Essentials capsule using an eco-sustainable anti-pilling technical fabric that perfectly resists many washes.
And what could be more versatile than OPI[MO]’s masculine-cut white shirt? Wear it with jeans or use it as an outer layer paired with a camisole with thin straps.
Save space and money! 😉
Get rid of clothes you no longer wear and keep the timeless pieces, leaving you with about 30 to 50 items. Store everything in the closet and make sure everything is well balanced in terms of colors and types.
Such a minimalist wardrobe lends itself to periodic updates and small additions, but it’s easier to manage everything.
The capsule wardrobe, made up of essential, carefully selected items, allows you to save in many ways.
The fashion industry is one of the world’s major polluters, so changing your clothing habits is not just a lifestyle correction but also a step towards contributing to the planet’s health.
Thoughtfully considering how your fashion purchases can improve collective life and your daily life means emphasizing quality over quantity, reducing waste, and saving money in the long run.
